The classic appeal of a good old (or new) denim shirt can’t be denied. The popularity of this piece is undeniable, it can be worn around the house, to work, or for a fun night out.
If you want to get in on the fun but aren’t sure how, we know five killer ways to rock the denim shirt, featuring our Levi’s Classic Western Denim Top.
1) with darker denim
Many people shy away from the denim-on-denim look but it’s one of the easiest ways to wear a denim shirt. While some go for a matching denim on both top and bottom, you don’t want to pull a Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears look circa 2001.
Instead, go for jeans that have a dark wash to complement the lighter wash of the shirt. Try a pair of rolled up, distressed jeans to look cool and casual or some well-tailored, simple skinny jeans with heels for a more put-together look.
2) with black jeans
If the denim-on-denim look isn’t for you, try wearing your denim shirt with a pair of slim-fitting black jeans. This pairing is as classic as the darker denim but a little less of a fashion risk. This comfortable look is suited for everything from running errands to going out with friends. If you are going out you can glam it up with some fun jewelry!
3) as a jacket
One of the best parts about the button-down style of this shirt is that it can be worn not just as a shirt but as a light jacket as well. Counter the roughness of the shirt with a sweet and girly top underneath, like the Calvin Klein Jeans Ruffled Trim Camisole. This look can be worn in the spring and fall as the weather fluctuates and throughout the summer on chilly evenings.
4) with a skirt
Dress things up with a nice skirt. Keep it fun and feminine in this airy, lace skirt. This is a multi-seasonal look that can be worn to work or to parties.
5) under a sweater
As the weather gets cooler your denim shirt won’t go to waste. Wear it underneath a comfy sweater, unbutton the collar and roll up the sleeves for a fun mix of fabrics. As the temperature drops, you’ll stay cozy and fashionable.
Regardless of how you choose to style your denim shirt, you will always look timeless. It’s a classic piece that you can wear today, tomorrow, and for years to come.
