12 ways to wear denim… besides jeans!

12 ways to wear denim this spring (that don't include jeans!)


Denim has become a true staple in American women’s wardrobes over the decades. I’m sure that Levi Strauss never envisioned the fashion revolution he was starting when he created his first pair of “cowboy trousers” back in 1873. But, most of us can’t imagine a wardrobe that doesn’t include this durable, go-anywhere fabric.

This season, designers have kicked denim up a notch (or two!). In addition to traditional jeans and capris, stores are filled to overflowing with skirts, dresses, tops, bags, and even shoes.

All of these amazing options offer women a bit of a conundrum. How best to wear the fun pieces, without resorting to a look reminiscent of (tragic) Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s head-to-toe denim ensembles?

My suggestion? Simply stick to one piece at a time. Pair a denim tank or top with crisp white shorts and Sperry boat shoes, add trendy red wedges and a striped tote bag to a flirty denim dress, glam up a traditional denim mini with one of this season’s sequined tops, or carry a denim crossbody bag with a boho print maxi dress and leather gladiator sandals.

Above are a few of my favorite new pieces in a variety of price points. Other must-haves include the oh-so-cute Fit and Flare Dress at White House Black Market, useful Michael Kors Damita Wedge SandalsINC International Concepts’ Off-The-Shoulder Top, and Kate Spade’s Cameron Street Candace Satchel.

I think that Levi Strauss would be proud!
