Denim has always been a mah-jor player in our wardrobes, thanks to blue jeans, but it is currently reaching new heights in many other forms. Take a look around everywhere from the shelves of department stores to the pages on style blogs and you'll find the functional fabric has taken shape in button-up tops, flirty dresses, and even accessories for a look and feel that is suave and interesting, yet effortless . . . trust me, you want to get in on it! Shifting away from the norm of skinny jeans and cutoff shorts, I have selected a few unexpected denim picks for you to incorporate into your closet. Play it casual in your denim or dress the look up (just add a blazer, pumps, and some bling!) depending on the occasion — either way, I promise you'll shut it down. xoRZ
