STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Denim For Days

Style Advice of the Week

You accidentally miss your alarm in the morning and now you’re late for your first class of the day. You’re scrambling to find something to wear. The first thing that comes to my mind that I can easily throw on and run out the door is a pair of jeans and any top. Jeans are my go to item in my closet that I can trust match almost any other item in my closet. What if you could throw on multiple pieces of denim? That is exactly what this Fashionista did on a snowy Denver day. She is following the denim trend that has been going on since the spring season of 2012 and made it appropriate for winter. 

Anything denim is a staple piece of clothing that will most likely never go out of style. It has been in fashion for decades and I predict there are many more decades to come. I never thought that the specific “Denim On Denim” trend would work out but I am pleasantly surprised with the popularity it has attracted.

This Fashionista knows exactly how to sport this trend. She paired a pair of dark toned jeans with a lighter button-down denim top. Having the two separate tones balances out the look very appropriately without adding too much of a denim overload. If you want to copy this Fashionista’s look, try out these J Brand Skinny Leg jeans in the Ignite color with this Urban Outfitters Chambray Button-Down. Want to add a little extra color? Bundle up in a cozy scarf in the color of your choice. Almost any color will do!

The denim trend doesn’t have to stop at just jeans and a button-down. There are trendy pieces popping up everywhere. A cute addition to any outfit would be this denim vest from Madewell. Experiment with your own denim pieces and see for yourself how easy this trend is.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Denim For Days

Style Advice of the Week

Boston has been experiencing some manic weather lately. The days have been alternating between hot and cold, sunny and rainy. Trying to dress for this inconsistent weather has been somewhat exhausting for me. However, this past weekend I spotted a Fashionista who decided to embrace an unseasonably warm day and break out some warm weather style in the form of denim cut-offs. I love the simplicity of this look. The Fashionista looks really put together, but with minimal effort.

The neckline on her shirt is really fashion-forward. Having a high neckline like this allows for the Fashionista to wear a pair of denim cut-offs without seeming immodest or showing too much skin. Her sunglasses have an old-school rock and roll look, which I instantly fell in love with, and round out her look with a splash of personality.

Denim cut-offs are a great, and somewhat underrated, wardrobe essential. They can go with so many things and can even transfer between seasons if you layer them over a pair of black tights. I love the way the Fashionista styled her look for daytime, but denim cut-offs can easily be dressed up for a night out. Try pairing them with a classic white button-up, some colorful heels and a gold collar necklace for a modern and edgy feel.

If you don’t already own a pair I would highly recommend buying one. Denim cut-offs are so versatile and fun, a great change up from your basic jeans. I’m really loving these Current/Elliot ones. However if denim shorts aren’t in your budget right now you could always go the DIY route and chop up an old pair of jeans. A great tutorial for that can be found here.

Whatever route you chose, don’t be afraid to rock some denim cut-offs this week!
