Behind the Design: Denim

blog-BehindtheDesign-Jan-Denim-headerWith Wednesday’s release of the new Spring/Summer 2019 Collection, it’s only appropriate we shine a glorious, blue light on our newest solid: DENIM. We often forget how highly functional, seasonless, and well worth the splurge it is. Luckily for all you SCOUT cowgirls, our newest denim products won’t break the bank or split the old wallet at the seams.


Some of you pattern lovers may be wondering What’s up with this jean thing? From a design standpoint, denim has become a mainstream fabric across all items in your wardrobe. From jeans to jumpsuits, dresses to jackets, and shoes to bags—it’s everywhere. And it’s inky, chic, torn, frayed, patchworked, glazed, ruffled, and studded. Denim’s emerging as a totally modern option in closets for day to night and workweek to weekend. It’s coming in all different forms, and they aren’t just jeans. Denim is truly a fabric. See for yourself…



Distressed denim trench coat: 

This distressed denim trench coat is reminiscent of the famous Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake double-denim red carpet appearance, and we are HERE for it. It’s definitely out there… but would look terrific paired with low-key neutrals or an LBD.


Denim jumpsuit:

I know, it’s intimidating at first glance, but denim jumpsuits are actually quite flattering. This one is giving off some Route 66/Americana vibes that may make you want to pump gas and burn rubber. Life is a highway, am I right? Hot tip: Anthropologie’s got a denim jumpsuit with a fun, plunging neckline right now. Hop to it (while supplies last)!


Skinny jeans with side stripe:

 A great fitting pair of skinny blue jeans is the ultimate fail-proof wardrobe essential. They go with just about anything, obviously. Adding accents, like a side stripe, is a great way to elevate the look when you’re looking for a little extra flair or fancy.


Denim trucker jacket:

You can truly never go wrong with a jean jacket. Consider this staple to rock Canadian tuxedo-style, with dresses, skirts, or (gasp!) all by its lonesome. *I kid you not: I’ve donned one with a bathing suit before and got compliments!


Patchwork-effect high-rise wide-leg jeans:

All you suckers for a high-rise and a wide-leg have met your match with these flattering and funky patchwork beauties. Tuck in a white tee, and rest assured you’ll be groovin’.


Denim tulle layered skirt:

We’ll call this "denim-romantic" with a dash of Cyndi Lauper. Do you love it? This statement maker will surely get some looks and could potentially be worn by the right rock-‘n’-roll bride. It’s a fun number.


Denim ankle boots:

These booties with some black skinny jeans? Abso-freaking-lutely!


Denim slingback pumps:

Can you say, "Flirty"?! These little cuties would make for the perfect, light denim outfit additions in the warmer months. Très chic.

Clearly, denim is lit. And it’s always in style. If you’d prefer not to wear it, then rock it in one of our bags this Spring.
