Denim, a garment represents the American spirit, has the irreplaceable easygoing look and carefree vibe which make it an essential and never-go-out-of-style element in fashion world and a staple piece in any women’s closet, whether she is a college freshmen who shops at Forever 21 and H&M, or a successful working women who wears Lavin and Givenchy.
My favorite denim looks are from off-duty models. They incorporate chambray shirt with delicate tweed jacket, or pair denim shorts with intricate tops to create the attractive contrasts and effortlessly high-low mixing. I have already featured denim skirt, denim shorts and denim jacket in my previous posts. Today, let’s focus on denim shirt!
Just like all the stylish looks we featured above–a simple chambray shirt can tame model Sui He’s wild leopard coat (No.1); can add a cowgirl twist to model Arizona Muse (No.2) and Liu Wen (No.3)’s feminine skirt; can tone down Anja Rubik’s statement printed pants (No. 4) and Korean star Jun-hee Ko’s tough leather shorts (No.5); also can be a great beach cover up on Annalynne Mccord (No. 6).
Below are my favorite chambray shirts in different shades and cuts, and four outfits around them. Enjoy! Don’t forget to share with me your ways to style this basic, versatile and timeless denim piece!
