The spring/summer 2015 collections are teeming with top end takes on the work-a-day fabric. Victoria Beckham fashioned hers into fit-and-flare indigo mini dresses; Burberry Prorsum whipped up neat little jackets with a flurry of shearling, and Chloe took it top-to-toe with vintage wash sweaters with button-down maxi skirts. The indigo mood is catching for SS15, and - at last! - it's a trend us mere mortals can actually wear.
A fine example is Alexa Chung's debut line for AG Jeans. The collection was full of unexpected sell-out pieces- who knew cropped dungarees would prove so popular? The most sought-after item in the collection, however, is the button-down mini, a 70s-tinged sweetie which has already been "replicated" on the high street. The success of the skirt lies in its versatility: you can just throw it on with a T-shirt and pointy flats and suddenly you're the coolest cat in town. That's the beauty of denim - it's wearable, it's easy and now it's ultra chic, too.

I personally picked out the cropped jeans, a form-fitting pencil skirt and a gorgeous little printed red jacket, but on reflection I wish I had plumped for the slouchy dungarees. With a little something for every occasion, I thought I'd put together a couple of all-day denim looks to show you just how easy-breezy this trend is. Miss Chung, we know your secret.
