DENIM ON DENIM
Just like an oversize blazer or a biker jacket, wearing
tone-on-tone denim has earned its right to be considered a modern
classic. Try mixing up the washes, with lighter denim on top and
darker on the bottom. (Deeper tones can offer a slimming effect.)
Feeling risky? Try donning denim in similar shades for maximum

THE DENIM SKIRT
Current jean-skirt styles have fresh updates with polished touches
and an array of silhouettes. For a modern throwback to the ’70s,
try one with a buttoned front. Shorter hemlines juxtaposed with
oversize sweaters or a jacket make for an instant cool-girl outfit.

We’ve fallen for denim dresses—the latest trend in the fabric to
try. Just like every pair of jeans has a different silhouette,
denim dresses run the gamut from loose shifts to waist-nipping
shirtdresses to hide-everything overalls.

We admit that when overalls became trendy (again) a few years ago,
we were hesitant, but we’re well versed in the playful style now.
The freshest way to wear them is also the simplest: with a striped
top. Keep the look effortless with a pair of sneakers or dress it
up with a block-heeled bootie or sandal.

If overalls are too much denim for you, try on the cool combo of
striped dress and jean jacket.
