Although we are barely the ones to EVER recommend going out and *buying something… May we suggest something? Something which has survived the Northern Winter’s Arctic cold, and is now mincing through the summertime? May we suggest something so sartorially simple, yet edgy that even a simpleton such as myself would want to invest in it?
May we suggest… Denim blocking!
Be still my beating heart. Yes indeed we are suggesting that you go out to your nearest thrifter, and buy 2, or perhaps three… If you really go mad with yourself, perhaps even four sets of contrasting coloured denims, and mesh them altogether to create one amazing piece, ala Céline?
Not much of a D.I.Yer? Don’t worry, we have you covered.

That’s pretty much our rundown of the denim-blocking trend. Remeber; you can either create it, or buy it, but either way… Try it!
