5 Denim-Free Outfits We’ll Be Reaching For When London Reopens
I’m sure I’m not alone when I admit the idea of wearing a pair of my jeans from Summer 2020 right now sends fear through me! After almost a whole year of finding comfort in cooking and baking, rarely getting my daily step count over 5,000 and living exclusively in loungewear - why would I punish myself by squeezing into uncomfortable denim? If you’re asking yourself the same question, here are our top 5 outfits without jeans. With these alternatives to wearing jeans you’ll be comfortable all day long without sacrificing style!
When you're looking for a denim alternative, the two words "elasticated waist" are the exact ones we're looking for. These Scout Pants in Olive are 100% Linen making them super comfortable but keep a refined look thanks to the contrast stitch detailing. Pair with an elevated basic such as the Kyo Top and you've got an instant look. We'll be accessorising with the Smiley Signet ring that's bringing us joy every day! Feeling a little chilly? The Joni Sweatshirt is perfectly cropped to keep you warm whilst letting the Scout Pants do all the talking.
You can never go wrong with a summer dress as a jeans alternative and Xirena's easy-fit styles are the perfect antidote to often restrictive and uncomfortable denim. We're going a step further and wearing the denim on top! Finish with the unique Trekky Sandal to ensure you're the best dressed in the beer garden.
Believe me when I say this outfit will trick your brain into thinking you never left your pjs! Selkies sweaters are quite possibly the softest we've ever felt and we don't blame you if you end up living in yours 24/7. This piece is pretty in pink and features a gorgeous museum-style print, the loose fit cut works perfectly with the Camilla Dress from elevated basics brand The Line by K. Known for making all women of any size feel sexy, The Line by K are an easy go-to for stylish but comfy pieces you'll find yourself constantly reaching for. Of course there's a Baggu for any occasion, the Constellation print working perfectly with this whimsical but edgy vibe!
Heading to a beer garden with the girls? Dress to impress in these incredible printed pants from Staud. Perfect for everything from a picnic in the park to a drink at a bar (even if it's outside for now!). With such a statement pant it's a perfect pair with another elevated basic top from The Line by K, and finished in true sunshine style with the matching earrings and necklace by Martha Calvo - The brand bringing Miami sunshine direct to the UK.
Not quite ready to leave your sweats? I don't blame you! Throw your idea of the dress code out, cause dressing has changed for good after the year we've experienced. Gaia Gaia creative luxury essentials for the modern woman and their Dead Smile Tee is loved by the entire Twiin Team for its tongue-in-cheek print inspired by Acid House culture from the 80s and 90s. Pair the tee back with Staud's logo sweatpants and Gaia Gaia's logo hoodie tied around your waist (we love repping our ethical brands!). Complete this off-duty-model look with a pair of sunglasses and your favourite trainers.
Remember, we've all been through something we could've never imagined and there's no shame in weight fluctuation. Put your comfort first. If you feel good, you'll look good too!
