I’ll admit, I was late to the denim shirt trend. I never really appreciated how versatile this article of clothing could be, until I found myself reaching for it again and again – for all sorts of outfits and occasions.
Now I practically live in this shirt. It’s a medium wash and slightly fitted, which gives me the most options. Here are just a few of my favorite ways to wear it:
This is my go-to outfit, in some variation, several times a week – I feel polished and pulled together, yet comfortable and practical too. And if these jeans look familiar it’s because they’re my favorite pair! For the shirt, I roll up the sleeves and do a “half-tuck”, so that the belt peeks through. The jeans get a high cuff. When pairing denim with denim, the key is contrasting washes. Pair a lighter wash shirt with a dark bottom, as shown here, or vice versa. This avoids what I call the “jean pajamas” look.
For a more casual look, my trusty skinny jeans get paired with some fun sneakers and a comfy jacket-style sweater. A classic gray crewneck sweatshirt would look great here too. Wear the shirt untucked, so that it hangs out from the bottom of the sweater.
Don’t put your maxi skirt away yet! Pair it with your denim shirt – knotted in the front – and a pair of wedge boots. Add a big knit scarf and you’ve got the perfect fall outfit!
These next two looks are great examples of how denim can go dressy too. First up: pair the shirt (knotted or tucked in) with simple pumps and a statement necklace.
And I adore this idea of denim paired with a sequin pencil skirt. I would tuck in the skirt and add a few bangle bracelets.
So what do you all think? Do you love a denim shirt as much as I do? How do you wear yours?
