What to Wear with This Season’s Denim

When you’re trying to determine what to wear with denim this season it can be a difficult task to keep up with the current fashion trends.  To help make it easier to figure out what to pair with your clothing today we’re going to include some great rules of thumb to help make sure you look stylish.  At the outset, denim is one of those pieces that literally goes with just about anything.  Denim has become the mainstay for most casual clothing and depending on the occasion is becoming more and more prevalent at events where denim used to be strictly off limits.  We do still think that like my mother taught me there still some places where as much as we would love to wear denim, it shouldn’t go to the theatre or as a general rule of thumb where people are performing and we definitely love the opportunity to dress up as the occasion permits.  With that in mind, you should look at denim pieces as true investment pieces in your clothing wardrobe and make sure that you do have at least one pair of up to date denim in your closet.  You can really wear almost anything with denim and we suggest that you include a few basic rules of thumb when you put together your tops with your denim.

First one of the big themes with denim this season is the darker wash.  The deep blue colors can even be so dark to look navy blue at a minimum and almost black.  In fact, you do even see some of the faded black or grey colored denim out there as well.  With these dark colors, you will want to find great tops in colors that are great contrast.  Consider deep greens or coral colors that are very popular this season.  You will also see lots of lighter blues and purple or plum colors that are great contrasts with deep blue colors for denim.

Our next tip is for longer length tops.  One big trend in denim is skinny jeans.  The tapered leg look has even transcended into “jeggings” or jean leggings.  This skinny jeans look opens the door for tops that are tunic length which are a great complement to the slimmer look around the ankle.  Even if you don’t want to invest in a pair of jeggings, tunic tops can also work with other denim styles depending on what shoes or boots you pair them with.  Tunic tops are great versatile pieces that can work with some skirts and leggings in addition to jeans or jeggings or even denim capris.   You’ll even find longer length sweaters again this season and they look great with sliming denim and boots.

In short, you really can’t go wrong with denim, but if you are looking to stay ahead of the curve we think that you’ll find the contrasting colors and tunic length tops as great complements to the latest denim trends.  Ultimately, as with all trends, you want to make sure that whatever you wear it fits with your own personal style and be sure to stay true to that no matter what the fashion trends of the day dictate.

Winter White Fashion

If you’re looking for ways to have winter white fashion looks this season consider a few great pieces in a variety of shades of white and ivory to help create that beautiful winter white look.  Of course you will want to make sure and have some great accessories to help give the right amount of contrast to your look.

As a great example of ways to add contrasting colors, consider the Moonlight Cap Sweater by designer Laurie b.  This fashion forward sweater is available in white and during winter we love to wear it over long sleeve scoop necks in black or any color to add a little edge to the look.  Our favorite top to wear under this sweater is the Long Sleeve Scoop Neck by Splendid.  It is a great fabric and has a sheer look to it.  Available in a variety of colors including white that long sleeve scoop neck is the perfect complement for the Moonlight Cap Sweater. This sweater is a great way to layer in additional winter white fashion.

The Audrey wrap, also by designer Laurie b. features a luxurious knit in Ivory with a subtle contrasting tie at the waist in tan to give it just a hint of color.  With a beautiful fabric and classic feminine design, this wrap is a great winter sweater.

A lighter weight piece that is a great complement for your winter white fashion wardrobe is the Very Light Jersey Draped Cardigan by Splendid.  Available in a variety of clothing including white, this light weight cardigan has a flowing look and long length which capitalizes on two great fashion trends this season – the long length and the sheer lightweight fabric.  You’ll see a variety of similar light weight fabrics such as burnout again this season.

For a different look, consider the Nona ¾ length sleeve ruffle top by Velvet.  This winter white top features a ruffle accenting the v neckline and is slightly gathered in back.  We love the classic look of this top with the feminine touches and best of all the comfortable, baby jersey cotton fabric which is so wearable and comfortable.  It is long enough to wear with a wide belt if you are looking for longer length tops.

If you’re looking for great winter white accessories, consider one of our favorite necklaces featuring large white turquoise beads with specks of sand color on them.  For contrast, the designer utilized small shimmering gold colored beads in between the large turquoise beads.  All of this is set off by a copper chain for additional color.

There is truly no shortage of options for different ways to wear winter white fashion this season.  You’ll find a variety of ways to create great individual style while focusing your wardrobe on winter white.  As you create your own individual style winter white fashion, don’t forget that you may want just a pop of color and great jewelry is a great way to add a little pop or sparkle to help break up a monotone looking outfit.
