When it comes to off-duty dressing, denim is a fail-safe choice and the cornerstone of every great closet. However, far from playing a supporting role, this season’s faultless styles should set the tone for your entire outfit. A constant wellspring of inspiration for designers, the ’70s is a runway mainstay – and this season was no exception. Dark flares by LA-based brand Agolde are an effortless way to add an air of romance to a laid-back look. Finish with suitably vintage-inspired pieces, such as a turtleneck sweater, satchel-style bag and a shearling coat, for a playful take on a classic combination. More of a ’90s fan? Forgo the flares in favor of straight-leg jeans and a matching jacket by premium denim label Goldsign. For a discreetly directional look, pair with the decade’s most defining accessories: small sunglasses, barely-there sandals and a baguette bag.
