Denim Evolution

16.03.2015 + Upper Canada Mall + No Comments

Denim is back, and not just in the form of jeans. Spring runways showcased Canadian Tuxedo’s with a twist, featuring two and three-piece versions, with added bells and whistles like fancy draping, wide-legged pants, high collars and elaborate trims. Life simply wouldn’t be as comfortable without denim and this spring, denim gets all dolled up with new silhouettes and fancy details.

We love this billowy shirt-dress by GAP for its relaxed shape, dark wash and long pocket details. Throw on a pair of leather slip-on sneakers and colourful cross-body bag and voila!
