This outfit is chic, casual, and a real representative of the denim-on-denim trend. Matching denim shirts and skirts makes this combination a winner. Long denim skirts are one of the must-have pieces for spring and summer. If you don’t have a classic or cropped denim jacket, buy one so your capsule wardrobe can be complete.

Denim can be matched with a simple yet timeless beige or white tee and a bodycon blouse. Regarding shoes, slippers with kitten heels are the perfect choice.

2. Contrasting Denim Top


Making a contrast with denim is a great idea. It won’t only upgrade your daily looks but also draw attention to certain parts of your body. You can choose a dark wash for your denim top and a lighter one for jeans. The bow on the top is taking this outfit to the next level, making it very office-friendly. 

3. Denim Vest and Jeans

The denim vest is very ‘90s. It takes some courage to wear it, but you will immediately love it once you try it. Styling it with jeans in a similar wash is great as well as adding more details like a belt and beret. 

You can choose distressed jeans but then choose other details wisely. If one piece is ripped, others should be whole and without unnecessary details. 

4. Denim Collar and Jeans

If you are searching for a way to make an interesting denim on a denim outfit, then you should go for a denim collar. A nice and vintage-looking collar is laid over a classic white tee and combined with straight-leg jeans in a darker wash. This is a good demonstration of how powerful accessories can be.

5. Denim Shirt and Jeans

The denim skirt plays the main role in this look. However, don’t forget the denim corset too. It looks appealing and very chic. It reminds us of a denim shirt due to its metal buttons at the front. The skirt can have a deeper slit because it is matched with sneakers.

That is how the perfect balance between casual and sexy is achieved.
