Shirt and Necklaces; Banana Republic factory store, Jeans; GoodwillTo know me is to know I am obsessed with denim, any given day you can catch me in a look thats built around it. This is why our new series is dedicated to the textile that is Denim. We both love a good pair of jeans and a nice denim button down. This twill textile can be translated so many ways outside of jeans; from a denim skirt, cut off shorts or in patchwork on other garments. Denim pairs easily with anything and is our preferred foundation to putting together a chic outfit/wardrobe. The jeans I'm wearing are not new to the blog, I've told you all how I got them from Goodwill in a much darker washed, bleached and distressed them. Finding the perfect distressed jeans is as easy as buying an old pair and revamping them yourself. I'm currently looking for a pair of used jeans to make cut-off shorts for the summer. For the first look in our series I styled a denim on denim look, which happens to be my favorite way to wear this textile.
Tips to style Denim on Denim
1) Mixed different washes
I tend to mix lighter shades of washed denim when wearing denim on denim.
2) Add a print
To add a nice pop to you mono outfit pair your outfit with a bold animal print; I usually wear a cheetah print slip on shoe but most recently have worn my printed pumas on sale Here
3) Show a lil' skin
To avoid looking too buttoned up, leave a button or two open on your shirt. This is also perfect for showing off any cute necklaces you may have.
*Stay Tuned for PRT 2!
