As an American staple, denim creates a stylish element to any ensemble no matter what occasion it is. Whether on the runway or on the streets, the chambray denim shirt is having its fashion moment. You can find just about everyone sporting it from celebrities and style icons to the average guy walking across the quad. The versatility of denim makes it a go-to item for most college students. You can wear it running around to get to classes, take it with you to the movies, or dress it up for a fun night out on the town (of course, when you’re not swamped by coursework)!
I caught up with this Fashionisto who successfully paired a stand out denim chambray shirt with a dark washed pant. He maintained a minimalist approach by adding a simple beaded bracelet and Hugo Boss sneakers. Because denim is multifaceted, you can take the minimalistic approach or jazz it up with a few stylish details. On a personal note, I love to see guys walking around sporting the classic bow tie with a simple denim shirt. For the guys that are really bold, the denim and bow tie combination can be paired with a cool colored pant. However if you aren’t into the extravagant Brad Goreski style and you’re more like the minimalist Fashionisto in the picture, opt for a more simple denim shirt and sophisticated chinos.
Hint: When wearing a denim top, practically anything can go with it so don’t be afraid to go the extra mile and do a denim on denim look. If full denim on denim scares you, try a denim pant with a V-neck and denim vest. That way the shirt breaks up the all denim wardrobe.
