Denim has been a constant in fashion for as long as we can remember. Since it started gaining popularity in 1873, it’s been a must-have fashion item for both women and men. (By the way, did you know that the concept of denim came when a woman requested for a pair of pants durable enough for her husband to chop wood?) It looks like our demand for the best has always paved the way to greater things. And today we’re meeting your demands for how to wear denim.
The quest to know how to wear denim has always been on. But the problem is each year brings not just new denim styles, but ways to wear them too. And with all these twists and turns, it can be hard to keep up. But, thanks to some of our favourite style stars, we’re getting a cheat sheet.

T.’s no doubt that picking the right denim trousers can be difficult. But lately, the three-quarter styles have been making waves. Style stars like Nancy Isime, Zina Anumudu and Stephanie Coker have all hopped on the wagon, and we’re right behind them. The key to shopping for these fabulous three-quarter trousers is ‘distress’. Look for trousers with frayed hemlines or cuts and you’re in!
If you’re more of a denim jacket girl, then let Derin, Bolanle and Nancy inspire you. Today’s denim jacket is all about that extra edge. This could mean some beads, fringe detailing, prints or even paintings. Keep an eye out for distinct details to stand out in your denim.
Yes, overalls! With more people embracing vintage fashion, overalls are back with a bang. You can style them with statement shoes like Lola, or keep it simple like Valerie and Zainab.
Take your denim skirts to new heights with these amazing styles. We absolutely love how Zina Anumudu paired hers with denim trousers and a white shirt. And we want to wear skirts as good as Chinyere Adogu and Fisayo Longe ASAP.
