Denim Details

The best current trends are about adding a subtle quirk to a classic. Just like these looks exemplify, amazing outfits are created by adding cool details to an overall simple idea. The result is a trendy and flattering look with interesting details that take the outfit to a whole new level.

This Fashionista is wearing Revice denim jeans with line detailing on the front. Star detailing on the back adds a trendy flair to a classic outfit.

Because the jeans are so funky and cool, this Fashionista just paired them with a white tank with lace and buttons, simple tan sandals, and a few accessories with pink accents for a pop of color. She chose rose lens Ray-Bans, a pink suede bag with fringe, and a white baseball cap.

It’s the little details that make this Fashionista look so stylish. Instead of a plain white tank, she chose a girly one with lace trim and buttons. Instead of a dull handbag, she chose a colorful one in a fabulous, trendy fabric: suede. One of my favorite elements of this outfit is the fringe on the bag. A little retro touch never hurt anybody. This Fashionista clearly agrees with me because she jazzes up the look with another retro allusion by sporting round sunglasses with pink lenses. Not only do the round frames pay homage to the ’60s trend of circular glasses, but the fun color enhances the look and coordinates with the bag.

My look features Seven For All Mankind slightly flared, two-tone jeans. Like the first Fashionista, I wanted my denim to be the star of the show, so I also chose a simple white tank. I layered it with a sage green canvas jacket and Adidas sneakers. Lastly, I added a silver necklace and rose gold choker for some bling.

The tank top ties in the front with a bow to add a cute girly detail. The addition of the canvas jacket in an unusual color adds another cool element to this urban yet feminine outfit. Finally, the layered necklaces and mixing of metals punctuate the look with a subtle quirky touch. These small details, in addition to my unique jeans, take it from dull to trendy and eye-catching.

 

The days of tops and blouses being the focus of the outfit might be behind us because statement jeans are currently all the rage. PSA: Denim on denim is no longer a sin if you pick the right pieces. This Fashionista and I both kept our jeans as the focus by featuring them as the sole piece of denim in our outfits. However, this Fashionista could switch out her white baseball cap for a denim one, like this simple Anthropologie cap, to make this look edgier and further embrace the present denim obsession.

 

Next time you’re shopping for jeans, look for a pair with unique rips, embroidery, different washes, or cool line work like these.
