Welcome to Denim Month!

What denim-related topics do you want to see covered on HSS this month?

In a world where it seems like we are bombarded with #NationalWhateverDays just about every day of the week, we thought we’d try something new editorially-speaking on HSS and proclaim April to be Denim Month.

What does this mean?

Well, for one, during denim-themed April we’re planning a number of denim-themed articles. So look for denim-themed contributions to the Style Defined series, The Guide, advice section (you know there are posts there that don’t show up in the main feed, right?), as well as in the usual style editorial.


| GOOD QUESTION | How many pairs of jeans should you own? We’ve already weighed in on that topic.

Is everything we post going to be about denim?

Absolutely not. That’d be pretty boring. (Or extremely informative!) No, we’ll continue to publish regularly about other relevant topics as well. Identifying a month-long subject to focus on seemed like a fun editorial experiment. We’ll see how it goes. What do you think about the idea?

And then?

Here’s where you come in. This is your chance to let us know what denim-related topics you would like to see us cover this month. So chime in below with your requests!

GET INSPIRED: A plethora of denim jeans outfit ideas.

Happy Denim Month!

Thanks for reading.

    I’d love to see light denim incorporated with a few of your tailored looks (unless you have and I missed them, my apologies). Great concept and keep up the good work

      Light blue or white?

    Can’t make up my mind about “denim on denim”. Would love to get your opinions on it. Great work with the themed month!

      Good idea. There are more ways than one to make a Canadian tuxedo!

    Suggestions for alternative looks, e.g. why grey or silver gray can be better in spring summer than light blue, charcoal vs flat black, etc.

      Interesting thought. Thanks for the comment.

    I’d like to hear about seasonality of denim with respect to shades/colors/washes as well as weights. Whats good for spring, what needs to be put away until next fall? How much denim does one reasonably need and how can I avoid being overly “denim trendy” Thanks!

    It’d be nice to see denim vests ideas too.
