Weekend wear? I’ve got the latest. The denim shirt is quickly rising to a prominent place when it comes to laid-back luxe. A classic American staple, this season’s denim shirt replaces the plaid fad when it comes to button-ups. Whether you’re chasing your toddler (a la Kourtney Kardashian), spending an afternoon out and about, or settling in for Sunday brunch, the denim top is the perfect way to begin or end a leisurely weekend. Here’s a few of my favorite pieces, along with counterparts for a few style suggestions:
Look One: Hip Like Hollywood
1. Monrow Crew Neck Tee in White ($63)
Kourtney layered her 7 For All Mankind denim top over a simple white tee, like this Monrow Crew Neck. Paired with leggings and some fringy boots, it makes for an outfit that is equal parts cute and comfy. Add a splash of color with a bright bag and accessories.
2. Levi’s Classic Denim Shirt: The brand that started it all keeps pace with this classic. Double press stud cuffs, a western yoke, a placket front, and press stud fastening pockets give this top a timeless American vibe.
Look Two: The Urban Girl
3. Rag & Bone JEAN The Legging Jeans ($165)
I love the way that denim looks when paired with black, so these Rag & Bone leggings provide the perfect contrast. Faux hip pockets and back patch pockets with contrast stitching.
4. Diesel Cicca Shirt ($150)
This shirt is for the urban girl. It’s inspired by the hard-working utility shirt with a spread collar, press stud front closure, flap pockets and silver tone logo rivet at chest. Roll up the sleeves and pair with skinny black jeans to get the job done. Add some heavy duty accessories like a studded cuff or leather wrap bracelet.
Look Three: Buttoned Up Beach
5. Black Orchid Black Beauty High Rise Flare in Pure White ($118)
Stretch out the summer with these beauties. The 70’s inspired-bells get a tailored look when paired with a tucked-in button-up and wedges.
6. Current/Elliott The Fitted Shirt ($190)
Crisp white looks best with this deep navy Current/Elliott shirt, lending an almost nautical feel. Atlantic sensibilities meet Pacific free-thinking: tailored details like button flap pockets and back darts sit in juxtaposition with fading at seams and worn spots throughout.
