New Ways to wear Denim

This spring, denim has made its debut in many different shapes and sizes.  My favorite part about this is that these spectacular items are lightweight material for the warm weather. Blue denim, specifically what I’m talking about, is a neutral that can be paired with just about any spring color.

The first denim item, which happens to be my favorite, is the denim jacket. The jean jacket has always been around but it is in full effect this season as it  can be paired with so many different things. For example, with a spring dress, over a v-neck tee, with white pants or shorts, or with a bit of color patches within the jacket itself, to go with your color-filled outfit.

Now we know that denim is obviously too casual for work, but never a denim dress! It is completely work appropiate, which is great if your office is lacking air conditioners. Pair it with a nice black belt for the weekdays or a colorful one for the relaxing weekend. Now for something you’ve already seen and worn; overalls.  They’re making a comeback this season and sending some of us ladies to a kindergarten flashback! They go great with cropled or fitted tops in floral, stripes or even flannel.  To be totally comfy try some high tops on with this flashback queen of denim.

Speaking of comebacks, here comes the extra long, wide fit jeans. When shopping for these red hot flares, be sure they almost touch the ground and let your shoes stick out from the bottom. You don’t want them to look like you’re waiting for a flood! Their easy-going, wide bottom style will make you feel super groovy.

A very modern style in jeans, a light wash, is perfect for the warmer weather as darker colors are better for winter. Light wash denim is perfect with white; pair them with a white V-neck and/or white shoes. Whether you’re heading to work or down to the beach, I think you’ll feel amazing in your denim with it’s lightweight, quality, fabric and exciting variety that it adds to your wardrobe.

Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung into our world with the new, adorable off the shoulder trend that welcomes you with open arms. It brings you breathable, breezier, and lighter feeling tops with cutouts meant to accentuate just the shoulders.

There are many different styles that off the shoulder brings to you. Try a Bohemian style off the shoulder shirt with embroidery or a wide sleeve top that makes you stand out from the crowd. Or it’s great for date night especially in red or black, the most romantic colors. Black is a little mysterious, which is great for a first date.  For date night also try a body suit style off the shoulder top with a skirt and a bold red lipstick.

If you are going casual, there are ribbed short sleeve tops, sweaters, and lovely lace.Wear your favorite jeans and your hair up, and you’re off the shoulder top will be the highlight of your day off of work. My personal favorite for chilly nights are off the shoulder sweatshirts. If I want to be outside, I just slip mine on and I don’t feel like I’m wearing pajamas. But no matter where you are, you won’t get the cold shoulder from anyone while wearing this amazing new trend.

Global Commune

The final spring trend to get yourself into is the Global Commune. It keeps the world spinning with a deeper appreciation for many cultures. It’s free-spirited, bohemian vibe can be found in copper, teal, blue, and red. These earth-tone colors are wrapped around tweed, jacquard, leather, and crepe de chine. Patterns with Japanese influences and medallion, as well as fringe, top stitching, and embroidery are quiet frequently found in this trend. Some key examples are a midi sheath dress, kimono sleeved jacket, pajama pants,  boxy tee-shirt, and a collarless jacket. Get global as you embrace your inner being and are one with the world–of fashion!
