Everything But Your Jeans

The time has come for you to rethink the way you wear denim. It is one of this summer’s MUST-have fabrics. Wear it to work, a casual brunch, a date or a night out on the town… the possibilities are endless! And what better time than now to experiment with different denim pieces?!

Here are some of my favorite denim trends that I can’t wait to try:

  1. Denim jacket > I know this isn’t technically a ‘new’ trend, but it’s about time I brought my denim jacket back to the front of my closet! This can add a relaxed edge to any outfit and is perfect to take you from a hot day to a cool summer night. I have a feeling that you will be seeing a lot more of the denim jacket -it’s the perfect piece to transition into the fall.
  2. A denim skirt > News alert: denim skirts have gotten a makeover! When I think of denim skirts, I picture the short tattered things that girls (myself included) used to wear in high school. Not anymore! The denim skirt has gotten a classy new look. Try pairing an a-line midi with a textured/lace top. This is one of my favorites from H&M and it’s only $30! skirt
  3. Denim shoes > I may have a slight obsession with shoes… so when I started seeing denim shoes popping up in stores, I got really excited to experiment with this new trend. I have seen everything from distressed denim shoes to classy and chic styles. Check out my favorite here.

My personal preference for the summer: embroidered denim dresses! This dress is one of my favorites, not only because I scored it for under $40, but because I can glam it up for a night out or dress it down for a more casual vibe.

*These shoes are on my must have list! I have gotten so much wear out of them. I even bought the same exact pair for my sister! They also go great with denim!

For a similar style, try a light blue cotton dress -you can’t even tell that it’s not denim! This is a great alternative if you’re not a huge fan of denim, but still want to experiment with this style.
