Raise your hand if you need to do a closet clean out?! I’ve got both of mine in the air. But one staple piece that I will never, let me say it again, NE-VER, get rid of is my beloved denim button-up shirt! They are simple. You can dress them up. You can dress them down. You can tuck them in. You can tie them up. No matter your shape they look good! I seriously could go on and on. I truly believe that there are about four million ways to style a denim shirt but I’ll stick with my top three.
Right now we’re in that weird in-between of seasons. When you dress for the morning temp you’re sweating and regretting your outfit decisions by the afternoon. Super frustrating, I hear you! For weather like this I grab my denim shirt and tie it up with a fun mini skirt or layer it over a dress (also my FAVE look for when you’re rocking a baby bump!) This look can comfortably take you through the chilly mornings and into the sunny afternoons of our ever-changing NC weather.
My personal go-to is denim on denim. Lots of people are scared of this look. The key to pulling it off is balance. Play with accessories, add a fun neck scarf, break up the tones with two different shades or with the help of a white tee underneath or a belt. Just try it! Like, once. I PROMISE you’ll look and feel great and be ever so stylish! 😉
Lastly, layers! When in doubt, throw your denim shirt under your sweaters or over your favorite tee. Whether it’s an open cardigan or you just need some added dimension or extra warmth this is a simple way to add to an outfit.
So easy, right?! Ok you babes, if you don’t own a denim shirt RUN and getchu one! You will not regret having such a timeless piece in your closet.
p.s. We’ve got some really fun things coming your way over the Holiday season! Be sure to check back here to see what all we’re up to!
