8 Ways to Style Denim


Easy Tips to Stand Out in Denim

Denim pieces are an absolute classic and staple every season, as the material is something that can never go out of style. They always add a certain cool factor to anything you wear them with and come in a variety of styles, colours, and shapes and are an easy yet fun way of creating a myriad of cute outfits. 

We absolutely love the versatility of denim and all the amazing styling opportunities it presents. Looking for a sign that you should wear more denim? From classic to bold and summer to winter, here are different ways to wear denim 365 days out of the year.

How to Style Denim

Oversized Denim Jacket

The oversized denim jacket is one of the most versatile and classic items you could wear for nearly every season. You can wear jean jackets with everything from sweatpants to a romantic dress and they will instantly give your look an edge. 

We love how a denim jacket can make a more formal outfit look more relaxed while adding some spice to a plainer look. Whatever it is you’re wearing, know that a denim jacket is one of those easy details to make your outfit look effortlessly cool.

Straight Leg Jeans

Blue jeans in a straight silhouette are as timeless as you can go with an already classic style of clothing, and we think these jeans are something you can wear to any situation. Dress your denim pair up for work or even a night out by swapping out your denim jacket for a blazer, some heels, and a clutch bag. Conversely, your straight-leg jeans will look just as good with a plain cotton tee and your favourite sneakers.

Double Denim

Double denim sounds like a risky choice, but we think it’s a fantastic and easily stylish choice to opt for. Going for the Canadian tuxedo is a fun casual outfit that you can dress up or down. You can partner a denim shirt or vest with jeans in a similar colour for a cohesive look, or you can also wear a blue denim jacket over some black jeans for something a bit more subtle.

Denim Corset

Denim tops go way beyond your typical button-down denim shirt these days. You can find everything trendy in the material from denim crop tops to the ultra-fashionable denim corset. Add this item to your wardrobe if you want to pull together an effortlessly trendy and chic outfit. Have fun with it by pairing it with leggings or a pair of denim jeans.

Denim Skirts

If you want to rock the denim trend but aren’t a huge fan of wearing denim jeans, then maybe a skirt option is your best bet to add to your closet. Denim skirts are a great way to add a bit of girliness to your look while still retaining that casual edgy style. 

We love how longer lengths and opting for skirts that fall below the knee make them even easier for styling in different seasons. Wear your denim skirt with some knee-high boots and a leather blazer for something warm yet incredibly stylish.

Skinny Jeans

Enhance your skinny jeans and make yourself look more put-together for nights out by matching them with some smarter pieces. For more dressed-up occasions, you can pair your jeans with a ruffled top tucked in for a cinched waist or a blazer with more structured shoulders, some high heels, and slicked back hair for a look that suits most occasions. Opting for skinny jeans with split hems can also give the silhouette a more modern and flattering upgrade.

Coloured/Patterned Denim

When it comes to the denim trend, you don’t have to resort to just the classic blue. You can go with any colour or pattern under the sun, whether you want to wear a bright pink denim ensemble or a simple striped denim shirt or jeans. Coloured denim also looks great in the summer when paired with sandals or worn over a dress, making for a chic outfit that’s as bright as the season.

Wide Leg Jeans

Wide leg denim jeans are a great way to go if you’re looking for a style of jeans that stands out a bit more but is still as casual and versatile. We think wide-leg jeans go great with anything, from an overall oversized look with a baggy denim jacket atop, a sexy top to put more emphasis on the waist, to a simple white tee and half tuck paired with some open-toe sandals for a more laidback and relaxed feel. Whatever you wear them with though, this jean style will always add an extra layer of cool.

What Colour Looks Best with Denim?

One of the best things about denim is not only how versatile it is when it comes to different occasions and seasons, but also with what colours you can pair it with. Denim can be worn with virtually any colour you want, so just have fun with it and know that the look will be stylish no matter what.

Final Note

Whether you’re rocking a regular denim jacket or a Canadian tuxedo, the denim look will always be in fashion. With so many different ways to dress up or down your denim, this has to be your sign to get more denim in that wardrobe of yours.
