I love a good denim shirt. It doesn’t matter if it’s thicker denim a la J. Crew with an authentic snap front or a thinner chambray style, they are an all-round, crowd-pleasin’, wear-with-anything staple. I’ve especially loved the trend of the last couple of years of “denim on denim”.
Mind you, had you told me a few years before that I would wear mixed denim, I would have thought that there was no way. But I love the look. Personally, I like it more when the denims are not the exact same wash, so that there is some separation between the top and the bottom.
But denim shirts are good for more than just the denim-on-denim trend. They are great with white or black. You can dress them up with a great skirt or heels. Or, you can use them with something really dressy to take down the “dressiness” of the other item. And they go really well under a blazer (and we know how much I love those:)) They are just so versatile. And they have an innate ability to look cool and relaxed while still looking pulled together.
And who doesn’t like that?

|And denim is great with a little bling! The dressy jewelry is a nice contrast with the down-home vibe of the shirt.|
