Total jeans: how to create a professional look with the fabric

From head to toe or as a key piece, jeans are everything for summer 2022/2023

How can you forget the all-denim look worn by Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake on the 2001 VMAs red carpet? The couple's look entered the list of most iconic fashion choices in pop culture, labeling the combinations with the fabric for years. Following the influence of the 1990s and 2000s on fashion, consultant Camile Stefano bets that this trend will be back next summer, in a more fluid way and adapted to different contexts, including professional ones.

The “total jeans”, as it is called, appeared in the fashion shows of several maisons in this year's spring collections. Among all the pieces, according to the specialist, a common point stood out: the preservation of comfort, with wide and not obvious models. This was the case, for example, of the Stella McCartney and Balenciaga shows, which presented different looks with the fabric.

“Jean skirts are super hot this season. It's a way to get out of the obvious and bring a more modern look to the composition”, explains Camile

Speaking of skirts, these are key pieces to guarantee personality to the professional environment. For the consultant, the midi length is the most suitable. “It's interesting to combine with bright, prominent colors, and abuse the accessories to not leave the look too outdated”, he teaches. Another cut out of the traditional for jeans is the blazer. This year this piece was present in the Miu Miu fashion show, giving elegance to street style.

Camile, however, calls attention to an important fact: the formality of the look varies in each profession and in each company. Even in more casual environments, it is important to maintain the proper image, demonstrating credibility.

“The shirt and jeans combo is an excellent option for the work environment. Accessories can help finish. A jump or a structured scholarship can complement in a positive way”, he explains.

For those who still don't want to bet on total jeans, this casual and practical fabric can become the central element in the composition of a look. The famous “basic nothing basic”. It all depends on the combination of pieces chosen. “The ideal is to combine it with more formal pieces, such as shirts, blazers, knits. Avoid combinations with knits and invest in quality fabrics, such as linen and cotton”, concludes the professional.
