Layer it baby!

We’re not just talking about wearing your denim jacket over a shirt. Take things to the next level like Jayley Woo by layering your sheer skirt over cropped skinnies to give an edgy contrast to the feminine fabric, or wearing your cute denim mini over a shirtdress like Kate Pang. We’re totally stealing this look for the office.

Denim jackets with a twist

There’s more to the jean outerwear than your classic denim jacket. Swap your classic design for a more head-turning piece like Jeffrey Xu’s track jacket and Denise Camillia Tan’s trench, or if you are feeling in the mood for a little DIY, snip off the hem for a distressed or cropped look like YES933 DJ Cai Weibin.

The dad jeans trend isn’t going anywhere and this mid-wash pair that EXO’s Chanyeol donned at a Prada party in Singapore earlier this month, is basically proof. He kept the look fresh by pairing it with a matching belt, quirky turtleneck and blazer.
