Despite witnessing a gradual decline in popularity over the past years, denim is now poised for a comeback, as evident on the runways this season. The fashion industry has embraced denim in various forms and styles, ranging from cropped exaggerated flares to maxi length denim skirts and even incorporating technological advancements such as laser-printed denim. This timeless garment, patented in San Francisco in 1873, is experiencing a revival in 2023, coinciding with our collective need to ditch our sweats and reinvent ourselves in this post-pandemic era.
Suhana Khan, the upcoming star of the Netflix film The Archies, boasts a personal style that effortlessly combines casual and chic elements. Khan seamlessly transitions from a bodycon midi dress for an evening look to a simple T-shirt and jeans ensemble, all while sporting the same pair of sneakers. This ability to maintain a sense of ease in her outfits makes her style relatable.
A quick scroll through Khan’s Instagram feed reveals her affinity for denim, whether it’s classic denim shorts or a denim dress. Her recent looks serve as a compelling argument for denim as a versatile wardrobe staple that can be worn throughout the year.
The classic blues
Khan’s recent ensemble features a black crop top with full sleeves, paired effortlessly with flared leg jeans. This outfit is ideal for a casual daytime hangout with friends or a relaxed evening hosting guests at home. For a nonchalant, fuss-free appearance, she styled her hair in a top knot and accessorised with her go-to silver hoop earrings.
Denim on denim
Khan shared a photo on Instagram where she posed alongside her siblings, wearing a coordinated denim tube top and matching bottom. To maintain a casual vibe, she complemented her outfit with understated silver hoop earrings and styled her hair in a natural blow-dried look.
The Gen-Z going out staple
Pairing a classic pair of jeans with an elevated going-out top is one fashion formula that never fails to deliver. Making a case for denim on a night out, Suhana Khan posted a picture wearing her denim with a printed embellished top. Channelling the TikTok-famous ‘dark feminine’ energy, Khan added a pop of colour through her lips and nails. She kept her hair natural and added a pendant necklace as her choice of accessory.
The beach vacation uniform
Khan showcased a chic and versatile way of incorporating denim into her outfit for a day out or a post-swim dinner on a beach vacation. She effortlessly combined denim shorts with a black bodysuit and topped it off with a stylish layer—an oversized, lightweight striped shirt. To add a touch of sophistication to her breezy ensemble, she chose penny loafers and carried a shoulder bag. This combination elevated her look, striking a perfect balance between laid-back and fashionable.
The model off duty
In a recent Instagram post, Khan paid homage to the iconic ‘90s style of Cindy Crawford, sporting a classic white tank top and denim shorts. Reminiscent of the supermodel’s timeless fashion, Khan added her own touch of flair by accessorising with gold accent jewellery. She styled her hair in tousled natural waves, and tied the look together with subtle, glowy makeup, kohl-rimmed eyes and a glossy pout.
