denim wardrobe staples

Denim is a ubiquitous wardrobe staple to be found in every woman’s closet. Whether it’s jeans, overalls, a skirt, a denim jacket, or a vest, denim embodies classic American culture and style.

These Guess jeans with faux leather patches lend an edge to an oversized blazer.

A myriad of styles and washes assures that every figure can find it’s perfect denim match in jeans.
The mid-rise cropped skinny is flattering style that shows off the skinniest part of the leg and can be worn casually with flats or elevated with a sleek pump. A ripped skinny version paired with a statement bag keeps the vibe from being too studied.

The slouchy fit of the boyfriend jeans is comfort personified. Elevate the androgynous look with strappy heels and a leather top, or wear a distressed version with a tank top  for festival season.
A faded denim jacket is cool way to top off anything. A slim version will flatter a ladylike floral skirt and can be worn as a shirt. An oversized style is ideal for layering with chunky knits.

    Love your Guess jeans Sasha! I am usually a skinny jean gal but I’m looking to try the boyfriend this season. I also love a flared denim jean that’s more high-waisted. More of a boho-type of feel. I love your client’s denim jacket with the gorgeous heel and stunning jewelry. :)

  2. A wardrobe staple for sure! For me it’s jeans, jeans and jeans! My favorites are my AG and Paige.
    I am on a hunt for a lightweight denim button down and boyfriend jeans.
    Love the cool vibe of your look Sasha! The layering is awesome!

    I’m swinging towards the boyfriend style myself this summer and I’m on the hunt for overalls! Can’t find a good fit…
    Denim is half my wardrobe. LOVE it.
    Digging the layered look as well!!

  4. Thanks Katherine! I love flared jeans too, have a pair from Macy’s from years back, they will never go out of style. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect boyfriend jeans!

  5. Thx Marina :-). My fave jean brands are J Brand and 7 For All Mankind. I don’t need to buy destroyed denim, I do a great job on my own, lol!

  6. Thanks Candice! I’d be willing to give overalls a try, but so true, fit is a tricky thing.
