Fashion Friday: Dashing in Denim

Friday, March 16, 2012

The official wardrobe stable right now is a denim shirt. In fact, as I pen this, I’m sporting one.

I’m so ecstatic that denim or chambray shirts are in style right now. They are so versatile that it almost demands that you keep more than one in your closet.

Here are some ways to rock this look. PLEASE just be careful of the denim tuxedo! You need to be really hip on how you rock denim on denim.

Oh and let me apologize for some AWFUL editing below. LOL. I'm very JV. 

Featured in every pic is a Denim or Chambray Shirt from Old Navy

·         Black Jeans (these are J Brand) or Leggings (make sure they cover your butt and vag!). Ignore these shoes. Pair with riding boots or flats – weather pending!
·         Candy Colored Jeans. Match your shirt with any color – blue, green, mint, yellow… I’m lusting over Gap Fuchsia
·         Shorts – I personally like denim and green and also the idea of pairing the denim shirt with shorts – so these from Anthro rise to the top as an option.

·         Leather Skirt – This one is pricey, but you can find some faux leather at H&M. Oh and leather is in for spring!
·         Sequin Skirt – I love the idea of using something as basic as a denim top with a sequin skirt. It’s very J. Crew and also helps balance all of the fun going on at the bottom of this look.
·         Pink Pleated Skirt – This look - a pink pleated skirt with a denim top and leopard shoes worn by Sterling Style made me realize that I NEED a chambray shirt in my closet.

·         Here’s a look from J. Crew pairing a striped maxi skirt with a denim top.
·         This mini from Free People is way mini, but you get the gist of how to pair this with a skirt for a fun summer look.
·         I forgot to make this blog official, but Anthro and I are back together. Yep. I’m back in shopping love with their clothes. So of course I like this look mixing the denim with printed pants.
