There’s nothing we don’t love about this trend that’s been making a mark in the uniform design scene. It’s fresh, it’s flattering and it doesn’t take itself too seriously… It’s double denim with an edge. So let this versatile cotton fabric take the lead with your uniform styles. And if you think you can’t make this trend work… think again!
Denim styles are always on our best seller list, and for good reason. It washes beautifully, is easy to care for and it’s not just a design fad. Maybe the denim obsession is just in our jeans… Whether or not you’re jeanetically genetically blessed, this style will probably suit you!
We’re unwrapping the trend for you here so you can visualise how this look might work for your business and brand. The main trick here is playing with different tones, styles and textures. By having variations in the denims, you can avoid the dreaded “matchy-matchy” style that should stay back in the ‘80s where it belongs.
Take the perfect denim apron…
A great apron truly is the piece de resistance of your uniform style. It just so happens that the Urbanbar denim apron styles are some of our best-loved styles – like the ultra-cool Bermuda style in Vintage Blue .
The cross-back style needs little introduction. It’s the mainstay apron of many a bar, café and restaurant. The chest zipper pocket and front pocket pouch are handy for busy staff, while the panel seam detailing keeps it looking modern and relaxed.
While the denim apron can work with virtually any shirt or t-shirt style, we’re loving the impact of pairing it with more denim.
Add a complementary denim shirt...
A soft slub denim or cotton denim shirt is the any-weather casual style. It’s adaptable for different seasons and can provide an eye-catching complement to the apron.
Don’t want to go full DD (double denim)? That’s cool. You can do it your way with a denim trim shirt like the Harvey Style in blue check. Guaranteed to make your staff look and feel fantastic.
Wear it back with your favourite chinos or jeans
The beauty of denim-based uniforms is that they’re so easy to style. The apron and shirt pictured would be perfect with just about any smart casual pants. If you’re a relaxed beach café, you could do raw cut-off denim shorts or relaxed neutral chinos rolled at the cuff. Try to avoid triple Indigo denim by finishing your denim shirt and apron off with a blue denim Jean. Opt for black, grey or neutrals. For an urban vibe, go for skinny jeans in charcoal with zipper detailing. Let your staff experiment and find a way to style the look that suits your brand.
