WHAT IS OLD IS NEW AGAIN
For 2020, we are seeing the resurgence of straight leg denim after a decade of skinny jean obsession. While skinny jeans are here to stay, more leg styles are making a comeback including wide-leg denim, flares and bell-bottoms.
Embellishments and colours continue to be on-trend for spring and summer.
Two-tone stitching, fringe, and raw hem ankle pants are popular styles.
Look for mint green, coral and white denim at the Boutique now.
State-of-art denim now moves with you for the most comfortable fit ever. Denim companies are using their own proprietary formulas to create softer fabrics with 4-way stretch. Diagonal stretch is a relatively recent innovation which eliminates bagging and increases the memory of the fabric. You’ll also find new waistbands that stretch while avoiding gaps. One of our favourite innovations is from FDJ. Their Coolmax denim is moisture-wicking and breathable – perfect for travel and ladies who overheat easily.
DENIM AT WORK
Over 12 years ago, when we first opened, made in Canada suiting from lines like Ingenuity, Mondo, and Louben (all out of business companies now) was the popular choice for women at work. Over the decade, fashion trends for the workplace on the west coast have shifted entirely to a more casual style. Denim is now the mainstay of office wear!

West Coast ladies love our denim, but remember to keep it professional at work!
Always wear a jacket with your jeans.
Make sure your jeans are the most casual part of your outfit. Your shoes, boots, coloured top and jacket should be dressier.
Skinny and straight leg jeans are trending, so are textures and printed denim.
Dark denim, black or brown can be used for a little more sophisticated look, so leave your traditional denim for home and play.
Accessories are key… add a great necklace, bracelet, blingy or statement belt, or SCARF and look more polished instantly.
KEEP YOUR JEANS LOOKING GREAT FOR LONGER To help keep your jeans from bleeding and keep the fabric color “true” for longer, launder your jeans inside out, add a cup of white household vinegar and a quarter cup of salt to the cold washing water. These natural ingredients help set the dye within the jeans’ fabric, providing some protection against bleeding.
NEVER put your jeans in the dryer! Hang them to dry. The hot heat breaks down the elastine and your jeans won’t last as long.
