One thing you can never go wrong with is denim! Denim is an American classic. That being said, it only seems right we vamp up denim and make it more relevant with today’s trends. That’s where colored jeans come in. Colored jeans are a fun take on a classic piece. I spotted this Fashionista wearing an adorable denim combo with a pair of maroon skinny jeans and a distressed denim vest. This look came off a little edgy with her black Converse sneakers and graphic tank top.

KS: I’m really excited to wear a floral headband. Ever since Coachella I’ve been dying to rock a floral headband!
CF: What’s your favorite thing in your closet right now?
KS: I just recently bought a super cute fedora that I’m in love with. It dolls up my outfits while also protecting me from the sun.
CF: How has Flagstaff, AZ inspired your style?
KS: Well, coming from California I have definitely started wearing more scarves and sweaters. I didn’t wear scarves very often back home, but now I love how they can dress up and brighten an outfit.
CF: If you could hijack one celebrity’s closet, whose would it be?
KS: I’ve been really obsessed with the show Revenge lately and I would kill to have Emily Thorne’s closet. I think her style is so beautifully classic.
How To: To rock denim like this cutie you’ll need to start with a pair of either colored or patterned jeans. These jeans can be skinny or cropped. Next, you’ll want to pick out a denim vest or a jacket if you’re looking for some extra warmth. I like the look of this Fashionista’s distressed denim vest because it adds a bit of character. Now, you can have fun with your tank top. Like this Fashionista you can pick a cool graphic tank and really make this outfit it your own. You can also choose a loose, flowy basic tank if you’re looking for a less edgy ensemble. Finally, the shoes. I love how this Fashionista played up the edgy side of her look with Converse, but you can also choose a pair of flats or gladiator sandals! Once you’ve paired all of these pieces together you’ll have an All-American denim look in no time!
