Denim Essentials EVERY GIRL Needs♥

Hi angels!!♥

Who has had a fabulous week?! Mine has just been CRAZY BUSY AS USUAL… I feel like I have barely enough time to do the things I want.. by the time I have got myself ready for a CHILLED out evening, had my dinner and cleaned up.. it is already going on 8PM! If you are in a similar situation to me.. DO NOT WORRY LOVES.. I will be writing up a post about how I divide my time between my blog and working full time.. TRUST ME LOVELIES.. If you are dedicated enough YOU CAN DO IT without wanting to pull your hair out with stress hehe!

SO GUESS WHO HAS A FASHION POST UP TODAY WOOP WOOP! The idea of this post literally just sprung into my head as I was sorting out my wardrobe (yep – total light bulb on top of your head moment girlies)… and it is going to be all about DENIM!


Now girlies.. I cannot think of a single person who does not own at least ONE denim item in their wardrobe – whether that is your FAVE pair of jeans, a denim jacket, or MY MOST FAVE THING EVER.. A DENIM PINAFORE! I thought to myself HEY.. what better post to put up than an “Essential Denim Pieces EVERY Girl Needs” one? Lets get right into it lovelies!!

Sleeveless Denim Jackets/Gilets♥


So.. if you know me you will know how absolutely OBSESSED I am with gilets – they are my absolute ESSENTIAL item.. and I wear my fur ones ALL THE TIME.. I may as well sleep in them girls. Of course.. when the sun starts to shine, the only thing my beloved fur ones will do is make me VERY sweaty (ew)… so of course.. OUT COME MY DENIM ONES!

Why you NEED them!

They are such a fabulous layering piece (both in cold and warm months!)… and give such a gorgeous, casual vibe to any outfit. The bleached denim one looks gorgeous on summery days and adds a gorgeous, bohemian look to any outfit. The fur lined one is PERFECT for when it is colder.. you’d be surprised as to how warm it keeps you!!

Spring Outfit

Pair with a thin, knitted jumper, skater skirt, a pair of converse and a backpack!

Summer Outfit♥

Wear with a fitted top, maxi skirt and LOTS OF BANGLES  for a beautiful bohemian look!


The fur lined denim gilet is PERFECT for this time of year – I LOVE pairing with HUGE comfy jumpers, knitted dressed/skirts and ankle boots!


Here’s some links to my FAVE items!

Missguided Faux Fur Lined Gilet

Asos Dark Denim Denim Gilet – I LOVE THIS ONE!

Denim Shirts♥


I am absolutely OBSESSED with denim shirts .. and own AT LEAST five! I was obsessed with wearing them at Uni as they were my alternative to huge cardigans in the warmer months!


Oh my.. you will not even believe how VERSATILE denim shirts are.. you can wear them buttoned/unbuttoned, on top of dresses or baggy t-shirts, with skirts, under dresses… the list really can go on! They also come in SO many washes, light/dark/acid wash.. and you can also get some with fancy ones with studs on too :D.

Spring Outfit

Wear unbuttoned with a t-shirt, black jeans and trainers… don’t forget the over-sized bag! PERFECT UNI OUTFIT!

Summer Outfit♥

Pair (unbuttoned) with a black and white maxi dress, a huge tan bag and sunglasses! PERFECT effortless outfit!

Autumn/Winter Outfit♥

Wear buttoned up with a structured skirt, ankle boots and a faux fur gilet on top!


Here’s some links to my FAVE items!

Pull & Bear Denim Shirt

Topshop Striped Shirt



Now I think this one just goes without saying .. every girl MUST own a pair of jeans.. my favourite being “jegging” type jeans.. I am not a fan of how “restricted” standard jeans make me feel. I LOVE the comfort of jeggings… so of course the “Joni” & “Leigh” jeggings from Topshop are my absolute FAVOURITES.


Well.. I could literally just sit here ALL day about why you NEED jeans.. but I will put a few of my favourite reasons why they are just FAB.

  • You can use them as a starting piece for ANY outfit and ANY occasion
  • They can give you the most casual outfit EVER.. but also make you look sassy when paired with the right things
  • They come in SO MANY STYLES (skinnies will ALWAYS be my fave.. I am on the hunt for the perfect boyfriend jeans though!)
  • You never have to throw them out – bleach them/rip them/turn into shorts… you can do ANYTHING with a pair of jeans!

Spring Outfit

Dark wash jeans with a button up shirt, brogues and a satchel

Summer Outfit

Light wash jeans, lace top, lace up block heel sandals and an over the shoulder bag

Autumn/Winter Outfit♥

Literally ANYTHING.. but my favourite outfit is dark wash jeans, ankle boots, a HUGE jumper and an over-sized blazer/faux fur gilet


Here’s some link to my FAVES!

Topshop Joni & Leigh Jeans

Denim Pinafore♥


This is my most recent purchase but OH MY GOSH lovelies.. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. A pinafore is SO ON TREND at the moment.. although I did get a comment that I looked like a “farmer” (thanks to my brother.. pah what does he know about fashion ey?). It definitely took me back to when I was younger and would wear dungarees and pinafores ALL the time – now I am talking back in my nursery school days guys ha!

Why you NEED IT

THEY ARE THIS SEASONS HOTTEST TREND.. well in my opinion. They are just SO adorable and versatile girlies. You can get black/checked ones for work, and gorgeous denim/white ones for casual wear! They will also take you right back to when you were 3-5 years old and you would wear pinafores to school! Pinafores are also SO comfortable to wear .. and all you have to do is chuck on a t-shirt and some converse with it and YOU ARE READY FOR THE DAY AND YOU LOOK OH SO ADORABLE GIRLY!


Spring Outfit♥

Pair a denim pinafore with a long sleeved stripy top, some brown boots and a satchel

Summer Outfit♥

Wear a white pinafore with a black t-shirt, black backpack and black sandals (& red lips of course!)

Autumn/Summer Outfit♥

Denim pinafore on top of a cosy jumper, a huge tartan scarf and black ankle boots


Here’s some of my FAVES

Topshop Cord Denim Pinafore

New Look Black Pinafore

So angels.. there we have a list of denim essentials EVERY GIRL needs in her wardrobe! They are honestly staples in my wardrobe and I base SO many outfits around these pieces! I am aware I am missing a denim skater skirt and denim jacket.. I am on the lookout for the perfect ones.. My ideal denim jacket would be over-sized, bleached and with plenty of rips :P… I am thinking I may just raid the men’s section in a charity shop and attack it with my scissors (haha!).

I hope you enjoyed this post darlings… do you have any essentials in your wardrobe? What denim pieces do you ALWAYS go for? I would LOVE to know!! I will be finishing work early on Friday.. and then have a few days off WOO! These are definitely well deserved.. I so CANNOT WAIT! I am also going to the Blogger_Hangout London Fashion Week event in London on Monday which I am SO excited for!!! I will have a special post up after my trip.. so make sure to stay tuned for that!!

I will see you in my next one angels!

Lots of Love,

    I love this Saira! It’s making me very excited for spring! I love a denim gillet with maxi dresses and sandals and a huge handbag! I love denim in general as you can easily go from casual daytime with trainers or flats or sexy nightie with a pair of heels. I need to get my hands on the TS jeans everyone raves about them! #DenimLove x

    This is such a great, detailed post with such lovely photos! I own two denim shirts and I’ve had them probably for about 2 years now and never worn them because I don’t know how to-this has helped so much though! I can’t wait to start wearing them! -Tash xx

    Such a great post with so many great suggestions here! I do need a good pair of jeans, I haven’t actually worn them in years it’s crazy! I would love a pair of dark wash fitted jeans teamed with a pair of chunky comfy boots.

    Great post and lovely to hear from you by the way!
