Thor star Chris Hemsworth wears this season’s denim. 

How to wear it:

Keep it simple
Nothing looks better than a pair of slim black jeans teamed with a pair of black shades and a close cut shirt. The key is to keep the look as dark as possible, but not so dark that you look like the newest member of The xx. Include a splash of burgundy or bottle green on your top half to pep up the look.

Fade in
Faded, stonewashed or acid wash jeans are tricky to wear without looking like a bit of a Euro smoothie. The key is to keep the cut clean, and the rest of the look as simple as possible. A basic grey T-shirt, a pair of white sneakers and a jumper in a slightly darker shade than the jeans will look understated and sharp.

Match your colours
A pair of coloured jeans is a great option for summer, but knowing what to wear with them can be tricky. Too much matching and the outfit will look forced, nothing matching and you’ll look like a clown. Team your jeans with occasional flashes of a similar shade, and keep the rest of your look muted and monochrome.
