Denim Looks

It’s not unusual for certain fashion trends to gain popularity then promptly die out, never to be worn again. Yet, among the ever-changing fashion trends, there are classic styles that remain constant in every wardrobe. For example, denim has been popular for decades and will most likely maintain that status for many more!

Denim's versatility is one reason it is consistently relevant in fashion. Today I’ll be sharing five unique styles of denim and how you can wear them!

Style 1: A Unique Silhouette

Don’t be afraid to branch out from skinny jeans or mom jeans! While these are certain essentials in every closet, it is also important to incorporate other silhouettes. These wide-leg jeans are such a unique style that can create a super put together outfit with little effort. The tortoise shell buttons are another cute detail that makes these pants stand out.

Style 2: Denim-on-Denim

Some may be critical of the denim-on-denim look (I was too!) but it is a classic style that, when styled correctly, can be super cute! When layering denim I recommend going with light-wash because it’s less overpowering than dark-wash denim. A white- or light-colored shirt is ideal. I opted for a tube top because showing a little more skin can ensure that you’re not overpowered by the fabric! This will keep the look light and counterbalance the heavy fabric. Lastly, the key to a perfect double-denim look is the proper accessories! I used a silky bandana as a belt to embrace the hippie vibes and threw on some Nike Air Forces to add a modern detail.

Style 3: A Different Denim Jacket

This charcoal denim jacket is definitely one of my go-to items. Whenever I want to add a more edgy feel to an outfit, this is the perfect addition. I love pairing it with light-wash jeans or a fun leopard print skirt! The best part is that I actually thrifted this jacket (but I ultra-cropped it myself!) Always check your local Plato’s Closet for authentic and good-quality denim!

Style 4: Get Colorful

Personally, I feel that colored denim is one of the most exciting and unique ways to rock the fabric. I got this light-pink jacket (and cropped it myself, of course!) for a super affordable price! This jacket over a graphic tee paired with black jeans is an easy go-to look!

Style 5: Patterned Jeans

Patterned denim is another funky way to rock denim. These jeans are a great alternative to the basic mom jeans and tee outfit. Best of all, they are super easy to style and create a fun look! There are so many types of patterned jeans, such as florals or embellishments!

With all the variety of silhouettes, patterns, and colors, you’re bound to find a style that you like! Don’t be afraid to branch out and try more unique styles of denim!
