STYLE ADVICE: Draped in Denim

STYLE ADVICE: Draped in Denim

Denim on denim: to love or to hate? To try or completely avoid? This trend is one that has been up for debate as long as clashing black and brown. Although to some it may be considered one of fashion’s biggest don’ts, celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Selena Gomez have all been seen rocking this look. Although celebrities tend to favor denim button-downs paired with a pair of skinny jeans or an oversize denim jacket with skinny jeans, this Fashionista takes her own spin by crafting this chic, spring-friendly look.

This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect example of how to rock this trend this spring. She pairs a killer dual-tone, light and dark wash, denim skirt from Express with a classic light denim jacket draped over her shoulders. Underneath her jacket she wears a loose, white, chiffon blouse, which helps to dress up the overall look while breaking up the denim. When styling this trend, it is important to focus on breaking up the denims rather than trying to overpower it with a colored or print top. Keeping it simple, like this Fashionista, not only breaks up the two denim pieces, but also her blouse accentuates the lighter tones in both the denim pieces.

Although denim has the reputation to be an everyday, casual piece; when styled properly, it has the potential to be worn for a dressier ensemble. Pairing this look with a few accessories is what helps transform this outfit from an everyday look to a stylish statement. For jewelry, she pairs an oversize pair of white and gold Kendra Scott earrings with a beaded tassel necklace. Her adorable chained purse works great with the gold embellishments on both her earrings and necklace. This Fashionista’s embellished slip-on sneakers sticks to her street style vibe while still adding a fun flair with the studding.

Don’t be afraid to test out controversial trends this spring. Add your own spin and have fun crafting looks outside of your comfort zone.
