Meet your new denim wardrobe
There are two kinds of jeans: the jeans you know and love, and the ones that you haven’t yet met.
There are two kinds of jeans: the jeans you know and love, and the ones that you haven’t yet met. At Tu HQ, we advocate a wardrobe that’s stocked with tried-and-true styles along with some fresh new designs that will add a little thrill to getting dressed. In other words, a great jeans-shopping strategy isn’t about finding the perfect pair but about building a fabulously well-stocked denim portfolio.
Take your basic blues for a start. If you haven’t already experienced the figure-flattering magic that a pair of dark blue skinny jeans can bestow, make a beeline for Tu’s polished and flattering indigo skinnies (see above). But your blue phase doesn’t have to end there. This fun pair of patchwork jeans or these chic ankle-grazing culottes will liven up your weekend look in a flash – just pair them with chunky shoes or a heel to balance out your silhouette.
But you also need to leave some space in your denim wardrobe for Tu’s new-season jeggings in bright summery shades and lively prints. Tu’s clever designs have just the right amount of stretch to add shape to your figure without feeling too constricting, while lively colour (hello, coral!) and print will add verve to a simple T-shirt or jumper. They’re also the perfect bridge-the-gap pieces to navigate the period between this season and the next; you’ll just need to add a longline jacket when the weather turns a bit cooler.
