The love of denim is universal and something that can be found in almost every woman’s closet. I love my favorite pair of jeans – nothing beats a nice fitting pair of jeans that make you feel amazing every time you put them on! Denim truly is a fabric that can be easily worn and is one fashion staple everyone must have.
This season we see a wide range of denim inspirations. Embellished and patchwork
denim, new denim skirts, accessories, jumpsuits, rompers and dresses are all taking front stage this spring and summer.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from this season's myriad of denim classics and ideas for incorporating these new trends into your wardrobe.
Patchwork and Embellished Denim
Patchwork and embellished denim can be tricky to tackle but with the right outfit combinations you can pull it off. You won’t just see this trend in jeans, it's also making an appearance in denim jackets, skirts, shirts and even some accessories. Since these pieces are so busy, keep the rest of your outfit simple. A white tee or a classic white shirt will give you a clean, more polished look, and offset the busy-ness. Solid colored bottoms also work well when wearing patchwork or embellished denim on top. If you're going for an edgier look, try adding a leather jacket. Keep your accessories simple, a solid colored pump or simple jewelry can go a long way paired with this trend.
The New Denim Skirt
This old classic has made a new comeback! The new denim skirt dons longer hemlines compared to past versions. Pencil skirts and A-line skirts with hems just above the knees are popular this spring, as are longer denim skirts that just barely touch the floor. These are definitely one of the easier denim trends to wear when it comes to outfit combos. If you are stuck on what to wear with your denim skirt, a good rule of thumb is to pair it with what you would wear with jeans.
Denim is making it everywhere, from hats, to purses, to shoes, and even iPad cases. Even if you are weary about trying the new denim trends this spring at least try this one because it really is the easiest one to get away with. A pair of denim heels or flats instantly adds a casual and unique look to an outfit. Trade your leather purse in for a denim one this spring; it is much lighter and cooler for when the weather gets warmer.
Denim Jumpsuits and Rompers
Jumpsuits and rompers are perfect for days that you don’t have much time to put an outfit together and for casual days when you need a chic look for a fun night out at a drop of a hat. Simply throw one on with an accessory or two and you'll be good to go!
I find that you can really make a jumpsuit or romper work for you as they are super versatile – they can easily be dressed down for a day at the beach or dressed up for a night out with the girls. If you're headed to the beach, throw on your favorite pair of sandals with a cool beach bag, a hat or sunglasses and some fun jewelry. Then seamlessly transition into a stylish evening ensemble by dropping the beach gear and adding sexy heels and a blazer.
A denim dress is a must have for every woman's wardrobe this summer. There are so many styles that are easy and fun to wear, and you'll be able to choose among various relaxed options and more fancy denim dresses this season. As the weather gets warmer, trade in your jeans for a denim dress!
