“The MiH design team and Niki worked closely together to develop shibori-dyed pieces that reflect MiH’s British heritage and Niki’s laid-back, Californian attitude. After experimenting firstly with denim, we then chose tees, shirts and scarves to become the canvases for our indigo art. Scarf prints were influenced by water and shadows whilst tees and shirts were tied to create spots and stripes with ease and spontaneity.”
When it comes to completing (or growing, if you never plan to “complete” it, as in our case!) a denim wardrobe, it’s best to think outside of the jean. Denim and chambray are two amazing fabrics that can create not only classic jean silhouettes, but must-have pieces like denim vests, dresses, and even shoes. Some of our favorite denim pieces on the market right now, aren’t jeans at all! Check out these 9 denim essentials below, and prepare to amp up your denim game this week.

Metallics are one trend that reappear each time fall rolls around, and we’re not complaining. A shot of pewter or bronze in an outfit can add just the right edge, whether it’s the coating on your jeans or a more dramatic piece, like this metallic silver skirt. What do we love about this skirt in particular? It’s under $50. Worn with a chambray denim workshirt and some serious heels, it becomes a head-turning look that will take you from day to night without a hitch.
Check out Refinery29′s breakdown of the look and score yourself a new fall statement!
