Raw denim is back. Darker denim options such as washed-out black and deep grey complement day-to-night dressing while clean indigo rinse and minimal stonewash effects are key. Creamy ecru take denim into premium territory.

Classic skinny black jeans are always a must and combine it with a denim jacket from Diesel’s AW18 collection. It is characterised by contemporary off-duty staples that speak to the brand’s sophisticated yet streetwear aesthetic. To give your whole look the complete WOW effect, wear some silver leather heels from Michael Kors and a silver clutch by Marc Ellis.
