The Denim Daze
As Giorgio Armani would say, jeans represent democracy in fashion. Ever so true to his fashion statement, the staple textile is once again making rounds into the style scenes with an old school come back. From handbags to overalls to patched up denim, we’re thrilled to tell you it’s okay to wear your favorite jean jacket this season and beyond. If you’re ready to kick start your jean scene, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite ways on how to wear the nostalgic denim gem:
The denim shirt dress is the ultimate closet staple when it comes to comfort and versatility. Try an oversized button up chambray or a spring denim sundress and add a thin belt for a cinched waist.
It’s time to update your boyfriend . . . boyfriend jeans that is. From high waist pleats to a clean ankle cuff, the oversize fit will make your other denim staples envious. Opt for a pair of these favorites and pair with a slouchy shirt for the ultimate girly boyfriend look [If you’re in need of finding the right fit, check out our denim guide and learn how to find the right fit for your body type].
If you don’t have one already, now is the time to get the perfect wardrobe staple that works seamlessly with [almost] any outfit. Pair a white tee and black shorts or a pencil skirt and add bright accessories to enhance the look. Other great pieces that pair perfectly with a good denim jacket are a floral maxi dress, linen romper, and basic pieces such as shirt dresses and jersey cotton skirts.
The seventies are coming back and seem to be making a hit on and off the runway. Overalls, white jeans, and high waisted bell bottoms have hit the hipper side of denim. A slouchy top or flowy blouse and platform sandals are simple ways to get your groove back with this beloved trend.
