At first, I regarded the return of the denim button-down with horror: Another awful 90s trend?!
But on second glance, a denim shirt can be pretty cool when paired with the right accessories. Check it out:
Bright red lips, nails or a sweater provide a trendy (and holiday-appropriate!) contrast to light blue denim.
Instead of wearing the predictable white button-down under your collection of colorful cardis, try a denim shirt. The collar makes it still dressy, just way more trendy and a little more down to earth.
The contrast of unfussy collared denim and pretty pearls: chic.
Go casual with dark denim
We’re talking dark jeans. Leave the shirttails out and roll up the sleeves. With a bright beaded necklace and windswept hair, you’re good to go.
Of course, I kind of want to wear everything with glitter right now, so maybe it’s just me.
Don’t forget: Get the right fit
