Forgive me for being so inactive on my blog! If there’s anyone to blame, I’d say it’s my school. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But in all seriousness, I was actually drowning in essays and summer reading books, but now here I am, better than ever. (As I would put it.)
So as I was cleaning out some bags of clothing I had stored away in the back of my closet, I couldn’t help but notice all the denim I had compiled! I’m not even joking when I say this but I’m sure 75% of my pants are denim jeans/skirts/skorts/culottes/dresses/etc.
And to start off this DENIM LOOKBOOK, I got a quick little joke:
What type of pants did Mario and Luigi wear?
“Denim Denim Denim”
BA DUM TSS, hahaha, let’s get started!
Look 1: Denim on Denim
Denim Jacket: Levi’s
Shirt: Novem Knight
Jeans: J Brand (Self-distressed)
Boots: Dolce Vita
It looks like there’s a lot going on in this get up, but truthfully, not so much. The color palette from the shirt (only) and down are pretty much neutral, but the pop of blue from the jacket really brings some color, and your eye focuses on everything as a whole. Each piece compliments each other nicely, and this outfit is, in fact, denim on denim! So blow your raspberries to your friends, because the denim-on-denim is subtle, without looking like a Britney Spears/ JT nightmare.
Look 2: The Blues
Button Up: Cherokee
Jeans: Kate Spade (Kick It Jeans)
Boots: Doc Martens
If you’ve been here for a while now, you’ll probably shake your head for yet another button up feature. (I’m sorry! I can’t help it!) What I love about the button up paired with the jeans is that it gives a little “dressed-up” feel and more feminine, compared to pairing it with a regular tee. The soft blue hues contrasting is nice on the eye.
Look 3: Bermuda Shorts are Back?
Button Up: Madewell
Shorts: & Denim
Tie-around Choker: Amazon!
This outfit wouldn’t be the first piece I’d put together, to be honest. But risks are worth taking, am I right? I found these denim Bermuda shorts a couple days ago so I was like “why not?” Of course, I left some personal touches with the classic white button up, and to complete the whole “street-wear” I paired it with these old Nike skate sneaks. I thought it gave some sort of edgy vibe, which also plays as a bit intriguing.
With even just three looks, there are so many ways denim can be put together, whether it be an elegant, street-style, or casual piece.
I hope you enjoyed!
