Three Ways to Wear Light Denim

Look out 80s, one of the latest trends in denim is the light wash! Fashion expert Erica Wark shows us how to wear it everyday, whether we're headed to the office or out on the town.

To elongate the leg, make sure your light jeans are a similar colour throughout and the wash is consistent. Go with a style you're comfortable with that sits on the hips and falls comfortably through the leg.

Colours and prints that go well with the light wash are just important as the denim itself! Look for lighter weight fabrics like cotton and silks.
