Good denim is a worthy investment. Every decade had its own take on this versatile staple, and the take on denim in the 20-teens seems to be a stylish upgrade from the ’90s. With summer slowly creeping in via festival season, here are 5 ways you can add a little excitement to your ole jeans-and-tee get-up.
Denim on Denim | Trop Rouge
With the premiere of chambray shirts into everyone’s closets, denim on denim has made a come-back. Keep the ill-fitting and over-the-top head-to-toe denim a la Britney and Justin in the last decade, and take a hint from Trop Rouge’s sleek translation.
Shortalls | Sincerely Jules
Admittedly hard to make this trend sexy, Sincerely Jules proves it’s possible. The secret is in the fit, and if you’re still intimidated try it first with a go-to fitted tee (striped or solid).
Classic Jean Jacket | Creators of Desire
Think of it like a leather jacket for summer. Throw your jean jacket over almost anything for an instant ’90s cool factor. Just remember to balance: if your jacket is as baggy as it was in the ’90s, keep the rest of your outfit fitted.
Denim Vest | Because I’m Addicted on Pinterest
When done correctly, denim vests can make any look edgy. Geri keeps it fresh by keeping the vest as the focal point of her outfit.
Sophisticated Jean Shorts | See Shop Eat Do
Rolled up shorts are just as effortless. Go for a more grown-up look by switching out your t-shirt or tank for a blouse.
Which look are you itching to try?
