Basic but better, denim pulls off everything in your wardrobe, a go-to solution to any weather or occasion. Offered in different shades; from jeans to jackets, denim can be easily dressed up or down to save you the hassle from a mad rush out the door every morning. Then, there is only one question left to ask: what to wear with it?
An unbeatable match: T-shirt
Whether it’s matched with a denim skirt, jeans, or an indigo jacket, a T-shirt is the ultimate go-to solution on any day. Be it oversized, printed, plain, or cropped, tees are easy to wear and pair and, more importantly, look good on everyone. Knot it at the waist to show off your carefully matched high-waisted denim, tuck it into skinny jeans for a flattering look, or keep the styling simple to show off the slogan print.
More than just smart casual: Shirt
Shirts may sound boring but not so when mixed-and-matched with denim. Offered in different prints, materials, and colors; be it a checkered style or a sheer, billowy design, button-downs can be paired with wide-leg jeans for a laid-back vibe, tucked into a denim skirt for a feminine makeover, or layered with a denim jacket for an extra cool touch; the choice is yours.
A romantic date: Puffed sleeves
The word ‘romantic’ may not spring to mind when thinking of denim but never say never! The puffed sleeves and denim combo can be groundbreaking, creating a dreamy contrast between the dramatic volume and flatter proportion. Ruches and ruffles often go hand in hand with puffed sleeves, creating a tender dialogue that almost feels like being quoted straight from an old romance novel.
A sliver of skin: Off-shoulder
Continue the romance but give yourself a break from the soaring heat by showing a sliver of skin. It’s that time of the year where you prefer hanging out with your girlfriends at a coffee shop for a lovely escape from the sun and taking some of those insta-worthy snapshots. Nothing can beat an off-shoulder and denim combo and this one just about ticks all the boxes. Lovely? Check. A hint of sexy? Yep. Easy to pull off? Definitely. Now with that done, you’ll only need a pair of strappy sandals and probably a woven straw bag at the crotch of your arm.
A lazy lingerie vibe: Camisole top
Lingerie-vibe daywear may have been around a while but it is still going strong. Spotted on K-pop stars, actresses, models, and more when scrolling through your Instagram feed, the camisole top matches well with denim shorts and a pair of canvas skates for a casual date out or wears equally perfect with a blazer, skinny jeans, and heels for a workday. Oh, don’t forget to wear some hair pins for a K-pop idol-inspired cool vibe – think Jennie from Blackpink and Taeyeon from Girls' Generation.
Remember to put on your SPF and you are good to go!
