Denim has always been a symbol of everyday style! The best thing about this rugged material is that it comes in so many shapes, weaves and forms, making it the perfect go-to for every body type. Denim on denim, casual, or dressed up, the possibilities are endless. There are even stretchy ones for when you want to look smart but be comfortable! And, as the quote goes, ‘in the right denim, a girl can conquer the world’.
What I love most about denim is how quickly an outfit can go from dull to dazzling with a few added accessories and fun colour combinations. When playing dress-up, I love to theme my looks and match all my pieces to the theme and mood of the day, which makes it easier to coordinate my looks. But if you need some immediate inspo, here are three ways to style your basic denims for a fresh new look.
An easy way to rock denim is to pair a girly top with oversized boyfriend jeans. The feminine-masculine combo makes it super edgy. The first piece you need to tie this look together is a statement top, which could be a printed t-shirt or a detailed formal top with a pop of colour or button-down details. This can help shape your waist and make sure you are looking snatched!
Another great way to dress this look up and add that high-fashion element is by wearing strappy heels that you can wrap around the end of the jeans. This gives it a fun and fashionable twist! A statement bag and gold accessories to finish the look and you can consider yourself ready to slay!
Perfect for a lunch date with the girls or a fancy event, this look is super fun, trendy and easy to achieve (and pull off). A statement bag and shoes are a must-have, with hints of gold to bring even more bling. A cool jacket, such as a leather blazer or biker jacket, is perfect to pair with this look, too. Adding some accessories, like rings or necklaces, will keep the look young and fun.
You see? Just a few statement pieces thrown together can take your basic denims from zero to a hundred real quick!
Denim on denim is a timeless way to wear this fabric (thanks, Britney and Justin circa 2001!) and is *definitely* a personal fave. Denim jackets, purses and even heels pieced together make for a monochromatic denim look (and also make you immediately stylish!). This look is a little bit more daring but can also be super simple with the right colour scheme and accessories.
An oversized denim jacket is a perfect item to start this look off with, and fun details on the jacket will elevate it even more! A printed shirt underneath with bold colours helps make this look stand out. If you can get your hands on a denim bag, definitely snatch it up! These are super fun, in style and are the perfect way to end off your denim-on-denim ‘fit.
With looks that are this easy to pull off, you’ll be looking like your most stylish self in no time, and ready to get your wine on with the girls!
