5 Fresh Ways To Style Your Denim Right Now

We’re pros at rationalizing denim for almost every occasion, which is why we’re forever coming up with fresh ways to rock it. Cool blue-jean looks that exude polish and charm are covetable whether you’re a girly-girl, a minimalist or a bit edgy. Working with a straight-leg silhouette (thanks to its classic versatility) as a starting point, we’ve styled five chic transitional outfits to try now and keep in rotation for the season ahead.

Denim For Days

A pin-striped button-down shirt is scene-stealing in an oversize fit with tie sleeves and a ring detail in back. Pair with Victorian-style ankle boots, a sleek clutch and delicate chain earrings for a cool-girl effect.

A leopard-print bucket bag toughens up a sweet knit top and Mary Janes. Top off the look with a moto-style leather jacket when the temperature cools.

A thin tunic layered over jeans feels entirely fresh when worn partially unbuttoned and teamed with sneakers and neutral accessories—a top-handle mini bag is an of-the-moment choice.

For an edgier take on evening, a satin camisole is chic with strappy flats and a chain-strap cross-body. When the chill sets in, a contrasting ribbed turtleneck looks cool layered beneath.

Add glamour to a one-shoulder top via velvet platforms and a mini croc bucket bag—a bow-tie choker completes the look.
