When the weather warms and the sun begins to shine, there is something invigorating about revamping your wardrobe... even more with denim co-ords.
Understanding Denim Co-Ords
Often overlooked, the co-ord or "co-ordinated" outfit, has been a staple in women's fashion for many years. Denim co-ords are simply matching or complementary pieces made from denim. Picture a denim jacket paired with a cute denim skirt, or high-waisted jeans and a denim crop top. These combinations provide a streamlined, trendy look that radiates sophistication.
Among the latest on-trend items, you'll find the denim co ords from JadedLDN. Their stylish line-up of denim pieces is perfect for the summer months and beyond, providing a seamless blend of comfort, chic, and durability.
Denim co-ords are the epitome of versatility. Whether you are hitting the beach, enjoying a summer barbeque or heading out for a night on the town, denim co-ords can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Simply change your shoes, swap your accessories, and you have got a whole new outfit!
Moreover, denim comes in a range of shades, from light acid wash to deep indigo, so you can choose the tone that complements your skin tone and mood. By mixing and matching different pieces, you can create numerous stylish looks with just a few core items.
Flattering for All Shapes and Sizes

One of the greatest features of denim co-ords is their ability to flatter any body shape. With the right cuts and fits, denim can highlight your best features while providing coverage where you want it. For instance, high-waisted denim shorts can elongate your legs, while a cropped jacket can accentuate your waist.
Brands like JadedLDN offer a wide variety of sizes, ensuring that everyone can find their perfect fit. Remember, the key to looking great in any outfit is confidence, and wearing something that fits well and makes you feel fabulous is the first step to exuding that self-assurance.

Not only are denim co-ords a fantastic addition to your summer wardrobe, but they are also a stylish choice for other seasons. When the weather cools, just layer your co-ords with a cosy jumper or a chic trench coat and you are good to go.
Even better, the durability of denim means your co-ords will last for years to come, making them a great investment. They are not just a passing trend; denim co-ords have staying power and will continue to be a go-to choice for fashion-forward individuals. Check out where you can wear your denim co-ord!
How To Wear Your Denim Co-Ord: Find Your Style
Casual and Cool
For a casual day out, pair your denim co-ords with white sneakers and a basic tee. The simplicity of the outfit enhances the co-ords, allowing them to stand out. Tote bags or backpacks work wonderfully for a laid-back vibe, and a pair of sunglasses can complete your cool, casual look.

For a more dressed-up occasion, consider pairing your denim co-ords with heels or strappy sandals. A sleek top tucked into high-waisted jeans or a skirt can create a refined silhouette, perfect for a date night or evening gathering. Add a clutch bag and some statement jewellery, and you've achieved a look of effortless elegance.
When it comes to music festivals or beach parties, denim co-ords are your perfect companion. Style a denim crop top and shorts with a pair of chunky boots and layer with plenty of boho-chic accessories. Do not forget a hat or bandana to protect yourself from the sun, and you are festival-ready!
So, as you plan your summer wardrobe, consider the style, sophistication, and versatility of denim co-ords. Whether you choose pieces from JadedLDN or another favourite brand, you will find yourself reaching for these trendy items time and time again. With denim co-ords, summer style has never been so effortless and chic!

Gilded Glamour, a theme that inspired many celebrities to go for sustainable fashion.
This year's Met Gala was a little different than usual. There are some comments going around social media that many celebrities did not follow the dress code and the theme. I guess the celebrities interpretation of the theme was different than what most of us, but that is what fashion is for - expressing ourselves. One thing that stood out was all the vintage and sustainable outfits we saw on the red carpet
Model Emily Ratajowski opted with vintage instead of having something new made. Dressed in colour, cutouts, and throwback silhouettes, she presented her interpretation of Gilded Glamour on the red carpet. Taking us back to the 1992 Atelier Versace spring/summer collection. The colourfully beaded Versace outfit was originally worn by former supermodel Yasmeen Ghauri on the runway. The colourful skin-bare dress comes with a halter-top adorned with beading around the neck, a voluminous embellished silk skirt with a dramatic train, and a voluminous embellished sash. Emily commented, while on the red carpet: "I feel very lucky to be wearing this look."
The singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes walked on the red carpet in a consciously crafted Tommy Hilfiger red and navy coat with gold buttons and structured, high-neck collar made of deadstock materials. On the inner lining of the coat you could see his initials embroidered. One thing he also highlighted during his interview was the matching nail polish that also had the logo of the brand. After removing his jacket, Mendes revealed a navy suit underneath, along with a dark turtleneck he was wearing as a base layer. The inspiration behind his look was “Navy Captain” but his fans have other suggestions. Some commented that he looked like a real-life Disney prince, but many have also said that he channelled Mr. Darcy. It is also reported that the look is a preview of an upcoming collaboration between the designer and star, so if you’re a fan keep an eye for some exciting news.
As she was deciding what to wear to the 2022 Met Gala, Emma Stone took a look inside her wardrobe for inspiration. The actress ended up re-wearing her wedding reception dress, giving a chic twist to Gilded Glamour. As we all know a wedding dress is to be worn once on your special day, but the actress decided to give hers a second life. Embroidered with white feathers and lace detail, the dress was a bespoke Louis Vuitton design. The brand also shared that the creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, and each ambassador or friend of the house that walked the red carpet wore “an archival or previously worn look with a twist for the occasion.”
The chief executive officer and president of the CFDA, Steven Kolb, arrived at the Met Gala with a tuxedo reworked with braille letters and embroidered onto a 10-year-old tuxedo from Shipley and Halmos. The 7,000 Swarovski crystals on the tuxedo were hand applied by Runa Ray, fashion designer and environmentalist. The crystals actually spell a chapter from one of Kolb's favourite books, Khalil Gibran's "The Prophet '' in braille. Kolbe shares that they decided to upcycle the jacket before knowing what the theme was, but he “felt particularly attuned to the universe’s gift of making sure he was on trend walking the red carpet.” If you have been following CFDA’s work recently that would come as no surprise. Working closely with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, they have committed to supporting more sustainable fashion.
A completely upcycled Gucci gown made from pre-existing fabrics was spotted on the red carpet. It was worn by none other than Billie Eilish, who had shown her dedication to sustainability many times and didn’t fail to follow her heart even at the Met Gala. “We didn’t have to waste a bunch of stuff. It all already existed. I just wanted to be as eco-friendly as possible,” said Billie as she revealed her Met Gala look featuring a corset, lace sleeves, and ruched skirt during the Vogue red carpet live stream. The dress was made specifically for her by Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, but it was made from entirely upcycled fabrics.
Nothing beats seeing celebrities on the red carpet channelling sustainability and promoting climate positivity. They have shown us there is nothing more rewarding than wearing something that makes you feel good and does good for the planet. These are only a couple of the sustainability garments so make sure to have a look at all the outfits of the night.
