Comments Off on Red, White, & Denim: Dress a down-home classic into uptown chic

Summer is the season for picnics, late nights, and casual classics. Seize this summer in style with a new take on classic denim. Add a few new pieces to your wardrobe to give this staple fabric the attention it deserves!

 

Dresses in the Details

The right denim dress can be classy and sophisticated or casual and flirty. Whatever your style, pick denim dresses with unique details, like Anthropologie’s criss-cross neckline or Connected’s peplum waist. For a simple upgrade to your classic weekend pick, try discreet triangle cut-outs as seen in NIC+ZOE’s neckline and Madwell’s waist.

Connected Petite Denim Peplum Dress, $79

Madewell Cutout denim mini dress, $130

 

 

Pair with Luxe Accessories

There’s no need to buy a new denim staple when you can dress up your favorite jeans. For a smoldering date night, pair your favorite blue classics with black heels, purse, and flowy top.

 

 

 Ditch the Zipper

If jean basics bore you, try an update sans zipper. Choose high-rise skinnies with button fronts or a stretchy jegging slip on. For the next shopping afternoon, class up a denim pencil skirt with buttons and strappy heels.
