Work-wear in origin, denim has been a fashion symbol for decades. Classic staples worth notice and repeat (as you can see here, here & here). Today let’s share two more stylish looks, see how the utilitarian and versatility make denim a non-fail choice whether you want to team with avant-garde pieces for a fashionable look or wear with other basics for an understated outfit.

The printed skinny jeans that Anja Rubik wearing (below) combines several hot trends this season: black and white stripes, checks and botanical pattern. If you are not ready to wear a strong piece like that, this pair from Theyskens’ Theory is a great alternative: with the psychedelic print which is another trend now, it’s equally stylish, easier to pull off and wallet-friendly!

For loud bottoms like that, casual, easy denim shirt or jacket is great choice to pair with. Add a simple basic pump, you are ready to go. For chilly days, top it off with a black coat like this one, the faux leather sleeves echo the overall edgy chic vibe. This grey Loeffler Randall bag is my current favorite, it will instantly add an understated urban chic touch.

For a laid-back, shabby chic look, distressed denim pieces are ideal. They are great to toughen up delicate pieces like a chiffon floral top, add edginess to other basics as Alexa Chung did below. When the color palette is simple, I like to add details, like the matte gold hardware on this “school girl” bag and the subtle glitter heel on this affordable booties. A delicate bar necklace adds a hint of sophistication.
