We could talk for hours about the wonders of denim. It’s one of the most durable, classic, and versatile fabrics. That’s why adding a denim shirt to your wardrobe should be a no-brainer, as it is the perfect staple to an assortment of chic looks. In fact, we would argue that a denim shirt is just as essential to have in your wardrobe as your LBD.
Don’t believe us? Keep scrolling to see just how many ways you can make this classic piece work for you.
With White Jeans
White jeans with denim make our hearts pitter-patter with happiness. The relaxed ready-to-wear look makes us think of our best and most stylish vacation days. Complete the outfit with a sleek saddle bag that can easily hold your passport, and you’re ready for take-off.
With Cropped Khakis
Seeing two classic materials like khaki and denim together makes the person wearing them look absolutely chic. Pair it with some chunky accessories to complete the outfit.
There is something so fun and fitting about a denim and tulle duo. The mix of cotton-candy-esque whimsy paired with an everyday piece will guarantee to bring a smile to everyone you strut past. And let's be honest, every time we see iconic Carrie Bradshaw clad in a tulle skirt on the opening credits of SATC, we’ve been looking for any excuse to wear one as well.
With Animal Print
Animal print is a bold print on its own, so try pairing it with simpler pieces. Denim is the perfect fabric to pair with an animal print maxi as it’s strong enough to carry the print without getting in its way. Give this outfit some more structure by adding a neutral belt and get ready to prowl your way through the day.
With Pajama Pants
Yes, you can wear your pajama pants outside. We only ask you to give them a quick steam if they’re wrinkled and pair them with a structured denim shirt. With this look, you’re set up for a comfortable day.
With A Maxi Dress
Nothing screams warm weather like a maxi dress. But if you spot some clouds in the sky or can still feel a bite in the breeze, tying a denim shirt over your maxi dress will provide you with ample style and warmth.
Leather—or faux leather—adds a commanding boldness to an outfit. The softness of this denim shirt balances the look. Round out the ensemble with a pop of color at the bottom.
Tied Around Your Waist
A denim shirt tied around the waist is a great way to make an outfit more casual. Try slinging one around your hips during the daytime with an outfit that you would usually save for evening outings, and voila, you’re ready for a cocktail-fueled brunch.
With Wide-Leg Pants
Wide leg pants can have a mind of their own. Pairing them with a tapered denim shirt will balance the look. Finally, complete the outfit with some celestial silver earrings for an even more beautifully grounded appearance.
