Doing Your Style Right with Denim

From casual days to cozy nights, from 18 years of age to 80, denim is one of the most versatile fabrics in your wardrobe.  It can be dressed up with your favorite pair of heels or accented with the perfect piece of statement jewelry. However you choose to wear this classic fashion piece, it certainly makes us ladies feel feminine and comfortable. 

Denim never goes out of style and has undoubtedly outlasted all other trends that have come and gone throughout the years. You know denim has kept its style when you find some retro stylish jeans still hanging in your mom’s wardrobe. And yes, I did what any fashionista would do…I tried them on and rocked them out!
Here are a few denim pieces that you can rock out when it comes to your style:


Denim jacket– This is a key piece for anyone’s wardrobe. I absolutely love a denim jacket. You can dress this item up or down and incorporate it in with any current trend.  Every closet should have a denim jacket…a thin one to throw over dresses on warm summer nights or a thicker one to wear in the cooler days of fall and winter. A denim jacket, black skinnies, a few classic accessories, and your favorite white blouse is just one simple way of making that denim jacket look fashionably fabulous!


Denim Dress– A denim dress is something that looks great on everyone. I consider it your new version of the little black dress. Thanks to the endless cut options this dress can look great on anyone, no matter your body shape or age. A denim dress can be every woman’s go-to item in her closet. Add your favorite pops of color, layer or accessorize and make this your favorite any-season style.


Denim jeans– Ahhhh, denim jeans, the start of a beautiful fashion friendship. The denim jean is the staple piece to everyone’s wardrobe. A good pair of jeans is a timeless possession, tops the list of comfort wear, and can be worn any time of the day or night. The great thing about jeans is there are a variety of options that fit every woman’s shape and can be styled to your liking. Whether it be a skinny jean, boyfriend jean, flare leg, straight leg, dark denim, white or even colored denim, it’s all about finding what works for you and your style. The options are endless!


Denim or chambray blouse– I always tell my clients to invest in this stylish piece for their wardrobe. I have at least three hanging in my closet now, and yes, I wear them several different ways. The denim shirt is a classic, versatile wardrobe staple that can be worn with a variety of bottoms.  As a casual piece, the denim shirt is usually used to create casual yet chic outfits, or to make structured pieces look more relaxed. In short, denim shirts are a great addition to many outfits in a wide range of settings.


Denim accessories– Now, I know this sounds crazy, but yes, I think a few things denim as far a accessorizing can be fun.  I have seen some really cute denim heels, wedges, flats, and casual shoes that can add a fun soft pop of color to any simple style.  I’m not opposed to even incorporating a dark denim handbag.

Denim shorts– You can’t go wrong with the perfect denim shorts; they are ranked high on the list of timeless trends.  Feared by some and loved by many, the versatility of this wardrobe staple makes it a must-have for warm months.  The key is knowing how to wear them. I would compare denim shorts to the perfect pair of denim jeans…same styling method and all, but of course you are a lot cooler.
Enjoy your denim and remember this is a fun and easy way to amp up your style!
