When it comes to transitional fashion, it doesn’t get much better than denim.
Navigating that tricky time when it’s not warm enough for T-shirts, or cold enough for coats, is easy when you’ve got a capsule wardrobe of denim delights.
And with tons of catwalk and celebrity inspiration around, this autumn/winter, you’re spoiled for choice in the denim department.
From baggy jeans to retro skirts, these are the denim trends you’ll be seeing everywhere this season…
1. Wide-leg jeans
As seen on the catwalks at Diesel, Coach, Jean Paul Gaultier and more, wide-leg jeans are an autumn essential.
Take your cue from the likes of Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid with extra-long baggy jeans teamed with trainers or loafers, or opt for a cropped pair to show off a pair of statement ankle boots.

2. Midi dresses
A denim midi dress is incredibly versatile at this time of year – especially if it’s indigo, as opposed to summery light blue.
A sleek pinafore is perfect for layering with long-sleeved ribbed tops or rollneck jumpers, while shirt-dresses go well with chunky trainers or knee-high boots.

3. Embroidered jeans
The latest Noughties look making a comeback, embellished and embroidered denim was a major trend on the AW23 runways, and now it’s hit the high street in a big way.
From cute floral motifs to cool graphic designs, these elevated jeans take denim to the next level.

As summer’s micro minis take a back seat, Nineties split-front skirts are the style to be seen in this season.
Try an indigo or black knee-length skirt teamed with ankle boots for a laid-back weekend look, or go full-on grunge with a faded, floor-sweeping maxi.
