Ever been in a creative rut before where you don’t know what to wear? Don’t worry guys! We have found the perfect simple outfit formula for you all where you do not have to worry about colour combinations, patterns and print mix because this is a fail-safe staple. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you *drum rolls* DENIM! It’s been in existence for many years and one can never have many of them.

Given that we now have different shades of denim — blue, dark blue, stone wash, black, mixture of shades— with different styles — mom jeans, wide leg jeans, frayed, pearl, patches, distressed, skirts, overalls, dungarees, boot cuts— I believe the denim trend can never go out of style. It keeps being reinvented year in year out.

2017 got the better part of it as designers tuned up their level of creativity and switched from the basic and boring looks to more upgraded and crazier looks. It’s also a lifetime staple.

Since denim is a go to staple for everyone, Mush and I decided to do a stylebook on it. In this collaboration, we decided to go with different denim looks and curated different ways to style the denim trend.

My look:

I opted for a cami top and a buttoned down skirt. Originally, this skirt was an a-shaped skirt. Had to recycyle it to a straight pencil skirt. I think I like it better now. This look reminds me of how I styled the basics here.

Next, I accesorised it with a silver bracelet and my imaginary silver wristwatch.


Have it in mind that statement earrings and sunglasses always elevate every look. You will always look like a cool kid in the block.


Heels is something I literally detest gosh! Had to go rub my feet when I got home after the shoot. (It’s a mules Kareemat for crying out loud)
