ALL IN THE DETAILS: Dolled Up in Denim

May 12th, 2015 at 2:00am

There is something about spring that screams denim. In the winter, we cozy up in the warmest woven sweaters and knit scarves. In the summer, lightweight cottons dominate our closets with T-shirts and colorful blouses. But in the spring, it is denim that really makes an appearance as we bring back our denim jackets and chambray shirts.

Chambray can be a great substitute for the average denim because it is much more lightweight and flexible. It allows you to move around a bit, but get that same classic and earthy vibe that comes with a material as unique as denim. It is also very good for pairing and layering because it matches well and is simple enough to create something interesting with.

This Fashionista brings denim to a whole new level with her perfect springtime look. She combines it with a very feminine style with her chambray shirt dress and accessories. I like how her shirt dress changes up denim even a little bit more by straying away from the classic pair of cuffed jeans or jean vest we may see during this time of the year. It is perfect for the spring because it can be layered for cooler days and paired with simple accessories for the warmer ones.

She starts her accessorizing with a colorful infinity scarf. Its colors and patterns remind me a lot of the bohemian styles that are becoming very popular right now. This allows her to be trendy but also unique by incorporating it into her own style. She then creates a waistline on her dress with a cream, slightly shiny belt. This is a cute feminine touch but also dresses up the look a bit.

She continues to make the look her own with jewelry and a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses. I particularly like her link bracelet because it complements her belt well and makes an interesting style statement. To complete her outfit, she adds a pair of very neutral Jack Rogers sandals, which complement her belt and jewelry.

Stray away from cotton for a day, and get dolled up in denim! This Fashionista rocks her chambray shirt dress and makes it her own with her unique and trendy accessories, and you can too!

How to: Not ready for a complete denim look? Try a jean jacket or chambray shirt over another springtime look. Layer them with a cute sundress, romper or with a pair of colored jeans.
