Denim has been an evergreen option for all seasons for as long as we can remember, and has officially been upgraded from what was once a casual piece to a full-blown runway-worthy item over the past years. For Fall/Winter 2019, designers continue to have fun with this ultra-versatile material, shedding a particular focus on the slightly darker, indigo blue hue.
Apart from jeans, the season’s denim trend is also stretching across other pieces, too, with models across the runways from Dior to Chloé spotted wearing top-to-bottom denim-on-denim looks that took the Canadian tuxedo to the next level. We’ve rounded up four of our favourite iterations to show you how it’s done.
Look 1: Effortless sophistication
For a look that exudes effortless sophistication, choose a belted denim jacket and pair that with wide-legged jeans, then cap it off with a pair of contemporary square-toe sandals and a structured top-handle bag for a hint of modern elegance. Wish to add extra style points? Simply accessorise your hair with a nice silk scarf for a chic statement.
Look 2: Nineties grunge
We saw a lot of the ’90s punk-grunge aesthetic on the Fall/Winter 2019 runways; Channel that style by adding a plaid belt over your denim ensemble, finished with a pair of strong combat boots and a leather bucket hat for an extra personality boost.

Look 3: Streetstyler chic
Dial up your style game like a true street-styler, and go all out in a cropped denim jacket and high-rise jeans for a statement look and body-flattering proportions. To add an extra layer of visual interest, choose a version that feature paneled details, as seen above. Be mindful to keep the rest of the attire simple, and finish the look with neutral colours of black and white such as a minimalistic nylon pouch and leather ankle boots.
Look4: Casual elegance
From Michael Kors to Celine, the ’70s style is another decade designers are referencing this coming season. For a smart but casual ensemble, layer flared denim dungarees over a rolled neck body, then top it off with a long blazer in checked print.
