STYLE SERIES: HOW TO WEAR DENIM
Is there anything more foundational to a versatile, all-season wardrobe than trusty go-to denim? Denim is such a flexible and transcendental fabric, capable of making an outfit look casual and comfortable or chic and elevated with just a few tweaks to styling, and no matter what fashion trends come and go it’s always guaranteed to remain a staple.
At Replay, denim is our one true love and passion. We’ve dedicated years to perfecting this closet classic for both men and women, using the everyday fashion seen on the streets of Italy to inspire our designs and our consideration for the planet to guide our manufacturing processes. Over the years we’ve developed a wide range of styles and silhouettes using our signature denim to help you develop the perfect capsule wardrobe – and now, we’re going to give you our top tips for styling these gorgeous pieces.
Every wardrobe has at least one pair of jeans; they’re the easiest piece to start with when styling denim and offer a sleek or laid-back look depending on their cut and colour.
OFF-DUTY COOL: Our loose fit jeans like Kiley and Marty are the perfect no-plans-casual jean, with their wider legs, drop crotch, and standout features like distressed detailing and knee rips. Pairing any of these styles with a cotton tee and sneakers is guaranteed to look cool and be comfortable.
EFFORTLESS ELEVATION: Denim is not limited to daytime outings, and our slim and skinny fit jeans like Luzien and New Luz are first choice for an outfit that is sleek, refined, and elevated. These styles are crafted with our signature Hyperflex stretch so that they hug your figure but stay soft and comfy, and come in a variety of colours and washes from classic blue to not-so-basic black. Dress these up with a flowing top, classic trench coat and heels for an outfit that’s cover-model worthy.
SKIRTS & SHORTS
A summer essential, denim shorts and skirts are always a winner. Whether you like them mini to show off your legs or want a bit of length, no wardrobe is complete without either of these styles.
BEACH READY: You’re spending your day at the beach; the sun’s shining and the temp is high, which means you want as few layers as possible. A baggy pair of jean shorts layered over your swimsuit with an oversized shirt or tee and sandals is a match made in casual-style heaven.
EASY & FEMININE: Skirts have become synonymous with femininity and are a great style to have handy in your wardrobe. Whether you’re going for a young and flirty look with a distressed mini like our Rose Label Skirt or for a 90’s chic midi-maxi length, adding a fun statement boot and oversized blazer or coat can take a denim skirt from simple to statement in an instant.
DRESSES & JACKETS
Both these styles effortlessly blur the lines between casual and elevated, making them perfect for throwing on to enjoy a weekend on the town.
ALL DRESSED UP: Boots, sneakers, heels – no matter what you pair a denim dress with, it’s an instant look. From lightweight chambray to thicker stretch denim, a denim dress can be worn in any season, layered over stockings and knitwear, or styled solo to make a statement. Dresses like our Twill Denim Dress with standout details in the neckline and sleeves are a must-have wardrobe edition for every occasion.
THE FINAL LAYER: Spring and summer nights still carry a slight chill, enough that having a jacket handy is crucial. Adding a denim jacket like our Comfort Denim Jacket or Open End Denim Jacket over your dress, tee and skirt combo, or even doubling up over your jeans guarantees a relaxed, easy-going look perfect for any situation. Need something lighter? Try swapping your jacket for a light denim shirt – same look without the bulk.
At Replay, we understand that denim is more than just a fabric - it's made for living in, and we've designed our jeans, denim jackets, shorts, skirts and shirts with that philosophy in mind; that the right denim can transform your wardrobe, your style and your life.
We live by a simple ethos, that denim can and should be a staple item in every wardrobe, one that not only makes you feel good but does good for our communities. From our luxury fabrics like the super stretchy Hyperflex and X.L.I.T.E. denim to our eco-conscious Re-Used range of recycled denim, Replay jeans are all crafted using organically grown non-GMO cotton, low-impact production methods and chemical-free treatments to help reduce our impact on the earth.
