I'm a Denim Expert—This New High-Street Collection Rivals Any Designer Buy

No fabric is more hard-working or versatile than denim. A classic pair of jeans can go from a coffee break to a dinner date with simple styling tweaks; a denim jumpsuit requires minimal effort to create a head-to-to look; the denim skirt, be it mini, midi or maxi, has remained a key style within fashion circles ever since its inception, and we can't forget the layering possibilities of a denim shirt or jacket. Denim truly does it all. This makes the hard-working fabric a true wardrobe hero, and high-quality styles will accompany you for a lifetime. With such versatility and longevity, it's no surprise that denim remains a focus every season. But come autumn, denim truly comes into its own.

To prepare for the new season, Free People's in-house brand We The Free has all of autumn's staples covered, with a particular celebration of all things denim. I've become somewhat of an expert when it comes to all things denim, and this collection ticks every single box.

For We The Free, denim does not exclusively mean straight-leg jeans. The new collection explores trending wide-leg silhouettes, figure-hugging skinnies and ultra-oversized shapes. The collection offers variety through colour. Many of the styles come in a range of washes and striking hues. And to go with these denim styles, We The Free has classic tops and accessories to see you through this season and the next.
