Shopping & Styling Guide: Spring Denim

Posted on March 15, 2018

Denim is the ‘it’ fabric of the fashion world for Spring 2018. Denim has been a wardrobe staple season to season for decades, however what is interesting about this season’s use of denim compared to other’s is the variety of ways we are seeing the fabric.  This fabric once reserved for durable working jeans and overalls is now making an appearance on shoes, handbags, dresses, hats, blouses, skirts and more! The styles, shapes, cuts and silhouettes of jeans are changing too – and we have the latest jean styles and trends selected just for you!
