Ahh denim, a year-round favourite that never really goes out of style. It’s a fashion chameleon that transitions from trend to trend seamlessly and is a staple in every woman’s closet. While denim pants are obviously what most people think of when they think of denim, there is much more to denim than just jeans.
Also, side note – when did we start saying “denim” instead of “jean”? It is because “denim” does sound way more “fashiony” than “jean”? A jean jacket makes me think of little kids whereas a denim jacket sounds much more sophisticated…
Now that that’s out of the way 🙂 it’s time to embrace denim in all it’s glory from jackets to skirts to overalls.
Here are some of our favourite denim pieces, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
A denim jacket really is a must-have. Whether you're an oversized and baggy, a fitted and cropped or a combo of the two, kind-of-girl there is a perfect denim jacket out there for everyone. This one is both oversized and cropped.

That's right...this season's soft trench trend is even available in denim. This is the perfect denim jacket for those of you that want the look of the denim but are looking for something softer and flowier (I might have made that word up but you all know what I mean).

Whether you call them culottes or wide-legged cropped pants, they are a great addition to your denim arsenal. Pair with an oversized sweater or a tucked in button-up shirt. Add a belt bag and go hands-free (it can also help to break-up high-waisted pants - which these most definitely are).
