TopShop has unveiled their SS09 denim collections, and as you would expect they’ve captured the big trends for the season…

  • Sleeveless denim biker: check
  • Cuffed ripped boyfriend short: check
  • Oversized denim shirt: check
  • Acid wash: check
  • Tight denim cycle short: check

The splotchy marbled wash seen at Ksubi and others has been interpreted on pale denim with a spray bleach effect, and pale denim is shown in tulip skirts, jackets and shirts as well as on legs. The main silhouette for jeans still appears to be skinnies, but pleated volume and peg legs are shown in grey marl and slouchy black fabrics.

Their suggestions for wearing the new styles:

“Mix delicate patterns with pale denim, weather worn stripes, vintage-esque petticoats and faded Union Jack prints.” or “With a nod to Rodeo styling, splatter-bleach denim and jersey dresses are infused with ethnic nuances.”

A word of advice: just don’t wear them all together.
