They say old habits die hard. Denim, which has been around since the late 18th century, is an old habit. However, it’s far from dying. Denim has had various peeks of rejuvenation over the years, but none as bold now. It has almost come to the point where you can have your denim served what ever way you’d like it. Acid dyed, floral print, leather patches, button-down shirts, bleached, essentially ANYTHING. Luckily for you, I came across two lovely Fashionista’s donning their favorite denim habits.
Names: Bridget Duvic and Alexa Maas
Majors: Textile Design
CollegeFashionista: What’s your style advice to other Fashionistas like yourself?
Bridget Duvic: You don't need to spend a lot of money–-Salvation Army is #1!
Alexa Maas: Keeping things simple is always ideal for me; have a lot of basics that you can fall back on and mix them up with accessories like scarves or earrings.
CF: Use three words to describe your personal style.
BD: Feminine, quirky, comfortable.
AM: Simplistic, reliable, quirky.
CF: Are there any blogs you frequent that help influence your style?
BD: I read LOTS of blogs. Right now my favorites include Dazed Digital, Miss Moss and Tavi Gevinson's Style Rookie. I prefer looking at beautiful things in print though! My favorite magazines right now include Bullett and Lula! Both wonderful inspirations.
AM: I love looking at blogs like The Sartorialist, The Man Repeller and Style Caster. They all have a seamless layout that makes it easy to browse. Also, the style is simplistic and practical, which helps inspire my outfits!
HOW TO: To recreate either look first start with a denim shirt. There are endless options whether you want a cute printed shirt or a more classic style. Next, opt for black jeans. For Bridget’s ensemble, throw a flecked slouchy sweater over top. Lastly, pair with loafers and funky jewelry to pull the look together! For Alexa’s outfit, add finishing touches by incorporating accessories and dark shoes. Load up on bracelets and a dash of print like a scarf turned head wrap. Not all habits have to die hard.
