Who’s got style? Talitha Tan and Mark O’dea put their fashion skills to the test with Uniqlo’s Denim collection
Denim has been a wardrobe staple for more than a century. What started out as sturdy workwear in the late 1800s is now a fashion classic. Find someone who doesn't own anything in denim-we'll wait. Jeans are known for their sturdy durability, but its truest charm comes from its absolute versatility. Regardless of the occasion, you can always rely on a trusty pair to be dressed up or down.
Uniqlo Denim offers a wide range of silhouettes that are designed for the modern man and woman. But this season, there are four distinct cuts for him and her, tailored to fit any style. For women, the High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans comes equipped with a Beauty Compression feature that gently shapes the midsection, promising an ultra-flattering fit. The High Rise Straight Jeans also aims for you to look your best with its balanced pocket design measured to flatter the hips, no matter what your jeans size are. Talitha paired hers with a crisp white button-down and a matching indigo jean jacket for a double denim ensemble.
If you prefer your fits slightly looser and more laidback, look to the Mid Rise Relaxed Tapered Ankle Jeans for casual coolness-it's the perfect weekender pair! If we had to choose, the High Rise Wide Cropped Jeans takes the cake. Take cues from Talitha who paired the white denim with an ivory knitted top for a clean and fresh ensemble. Its high waist and flared leg add the illusion of longer legs (a plus for anybody who needs a height boost). Also, we love how the frayed hem gives off a worn-in look.
As for men's, the Slim Fit Jeans are a true classic. The rivet design that accessorises the front pockets create a sophisticated finish that easily transitions the pair from day to night. Mark took it up a notch with a triple denim look by pairing the jeans with a chambray shirt and a rugged jacket. If you prefer an even slimmer match, the Ultra Stretch Skinny Fit Jeans are your go-to. Its flat, smooth seams promise a clean silhouette. Plus, the stretchy denim offers stress-free comfort so you can move with ease.
Need more options? Here's a pair for those who live in denim: The Stretch Selvedge Slim Fit Jeans. Its structured silhouette and deep washes offer a smart and refined take on denim dressing, making it work apropos and date night-worthy at the same time. And finally, the pair that warms our heart the most are the EZY Jeans with the gartered waist. Mark smartens them up with a striped button-down shirt layered under a knitted sweater. They may look like a regular pair of jeans, but try them out and you'll feel the unmistakable softness of your favourite sweatpants. Warning: You may not want to change out of these.
