If you are looking for versatility and bang for your buck look no further than the fashion faithful fabric of denim. Since the invention of denim in 1873, this never ending trend has & will continue to take over our wardrobe and give us the best items to wear on any day of the week. But, when we think of denim we usually only think about jeans. Yes, jeans are the most popular denim, but I've discovered some other denim treasures that are worth having in your closet at all times.
In my wardrobe there are few things that have been in heavy rotation for years but one of them is my denim button up shirt. It truly goes with everything! Any pants, skirt or shorts i pair it with for work or weekend wear match perfectly. I truly believe that a complete wardrobe cannot be built without some great denim essentials. I've put together my top 4 denim essentials you need for a wardrobe full of style & versatility below:
1. The Denim Shirt- Your denim shirt can be loose, fitted, with buttons, or no buttons, just have one! It's perfect to put on when you know what bottom to wear but you can't find or figure out a top to match. I like my fitted button up shirt because it can be dressed up with some dress pants or dressed down with a pair of jeans.
2. The Denim Skirt- Denim skirts are making a comeback & i love them because they are the perfect summertime staple. They vary from fitted pencil skirt to midi skirt and are great to add to your wardrobe if you are a jean lover.
3. The Classic Jean Jacket -This is different from the denim shirt because it's meant to be worn over another something else & not worn by itself like the denim shirt. I cannot tell you how many times I have grabbed one of my jean jackets as an extra layer of warmth in the spring or to "casualize" a dress or fancy skirt. I have gotten every bit of my money's worth from the 4 jean jackets i own :)
4. A Great pair of Jeans- Last but not least, it's essential to have a great pair of jeans in your closet. Regardless of age, lifestyle or size, every woman needs a great pair of jeans in their wardrobe. Since you can dress them up or down, get them light or dark or fitted or loose, buying jeans can be complicated.
