YOU CAN DO IT: DENIM ON DENIM


Is it just me or does back-to-school season always remind you of new jeans? It was a staple on my list of must-have items for the new school year. Perhaps due to the versatility of denim and it's "pair-with-anything" utility.

If you're looking for ways to play up your blues, trying the denim-on-denim trend just might work. But first, here are some tips to keep your look chic vs. bleek.

1. Pair lighter with darker: No matter the top or bottom. If your jeans have a lighter wash, go with a indigo tint for your top. It adds balance.

2. Don't just limit your ensmble to jeans. A denim top with a chic denim a-line skirt looks perfectly polished.

3. Get fitted: Nothing feels or looks better than a tailored top. But if that's not in your budget, try finding a denim button down that's narrow in the sides to give off that tailored effect.

4. Fancy footwork: throw on a fabulous pair of pumps or embellished flats as the cherry on top of this fun outfit!
