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.
