Putting denim on double duty

Jeans are a fashion staple that will forever be classically stylish and when you find a pair that fits you perfectly, you’ve struck gold.

Given that I’m currently pregnant, I recently bought a pair of maternity jeans and they’ve been a game changer for me. I love them and have been wearing the heck out them, they’re also the inspiration behind this article because they’ve reminded me just how versatile denim can be. A quick change of a top or shoes and accessories and you go from day time casual to night time glam in a flash. Double duty denim for the win!

Keeping things cool and casual during the day

I absolutely love the effortless look of jeans and simple white shirt. Paired with a nice pair of sneakers, sandals or pumps and your favourite sunnies / handbag and you’re good to go. Meghan Markle’s look was perfection at the Invictus Games with Prince Harry last year. But if you’re a glamour queen 24/7 like local celebrity Bonang Matheba, you can still make daytime denim work for you. See pics below …

Glam it up for an evening out

For a night out, you want to look dressy enough to go for dinner but you still want that effortless vibe… nothing too overdone. Change from sneakers / sandals into a sexy stiletto, add a structured jacket over a sexy top with nice, sparkly accessories in the mix and a nice evening clutch.
