How to Wear Denim for Every Occasion

 

Here’s a denim style guide with looks you can shop right now

 

 

Nothing beats jeans and a t-shirt, but there’s more to denim than the classic tandem. Even without the plain white tee in the equation, a standard pair of blue jeans can give you a hundred different looks; channel Brooke Shields for Calvin Klein one day and Rihanna circa 2013 the next.

 

As everybody’s go-to pair of trousers, jeans have had their moment. Now it’s time to look into how other denim pieces are just as versatile. Keep scrolling for easy style formulas you can use no matter what occasion you’re dressing up for!

 

 

Off Duty

Easy on the eyes and even easier to put together: a long denim jacket worn over a t-shirt dress is relaxed and comfortable. Would you have it any other way on your day off?

Girls’ Night Out

Make this Gigi-approved style move and add a pop of color to your denim-on-denim look. On your next night out, experiment with proportions by balancing out a body hugging cropped top with loose denim separates.

Work Casual

Here’s another take on double denim styling that’s a little more refined and perfect for Casual Fridays. Switch up the t-shirt for a silk button-down blouse to dress up the look even more.

A Dressy Affair

It’s perfectly fine to go a little relaxed even when the occasion calls for something dressed up: You can elevate your ensemble by wearing a breezy sleeveless denim blouse with a long textured skirt. Accessory selection makes all the difference, too.
