Denim with Detail

Denim is easy-to-wear as a dress. Go for a tube dress and wear it with a shirt, sneakers and a high ponytail.
Mix toned-down metallic and shimmer with denim. Or mix denims, cotton lace with winter materials like fur.
Popular in the 60’s and 70’s, patchwork denim is back as a major street style. From contrast panels placed creatively along the back pockets or right above and below the knees to jeans with colorful chunks or stitched pieces-update an old pair.
Bring together the two biggest trends of 2017- cold shoulder and denim. A well fitted cold-shoulder denim shirt is both flirty and feminine. Style with a denim belt or wear over a lace bralet.
Slit-hem bootcut jeans is the one must have denim piece for 2017. Bootcut looks fabulous with tailored items like button-down shirts, blazers and coats. When the weather warms up, pair them with a basic T-shirt.
How to do…DENIM ON DENIM
Play with different colors like pair white denims with blue or go tonal in your pairing-dark-denim jeans with a lighter top.
- Go for pockets that sit high and tilt slightly outward to make your butt appear lifted.
- Pick the right pair of sleek-cut black/dark blue jeans for a casual Friday work look.
- Choose edgy accessories like pointy pumps in nude or metallics and statement cuffs or necklaces.
- Cuffed denims look laid-back. For loose-fitting wide-leg jeans, go for a thick cuff. Skinny jeans, opt for mini cuff. The cuff bottom should hit just at or above the ankle.
