A light blue or white washed denim shirt can look trendy when paired with dark wash skinny jean or boot-cut jean. Use your denim shirt as a jacket. When you wear a denim shirt with jeans is to wear something beneath your denim shirt. Moreover, denim is considered a neutral in the fashion world, so you can mix and match a variety of colors with it. Try wearing a pink camisole tank top or a black fitted t-shirt with embellishments beneath an open-button denim shirt.
For an edgier look, wear a sparkly metallic top beneath a light or medium-wash denim shirt and above dark wash jeans. Know the power of accessories. While denim matched with denim will create a fairly casual look, you can dress it up for a day out with friends by wearing the right sort of accessories.
Simple metal jewelry, like gold or silver hoop earrings or bangle bracelets, can give your style a chic upgrade. Funky, chunky gems, on the other hand, can give off a more carefree appearance.
Wear the right shoes. Since denim on denim tends to be along the more casual side, ultra feminine strappy heels may not make the best choice. Instead, opt for a good fashion boot.
A brown fashion boot plays into the casual nature of denim while a black boot adds a subtle hint of class. Pair a fitted denim shirt with classic trousers. Try wearing the shirt with a pair of straight-leg trousers in black, gray, pinstripe, or khaki. Tie the look together by throwing a fitted blazer over your denim shirt. Choose a blazer in a classic color, like gray, navy, or white, to create a classy business casual look.
Finish the look off with closed-toe heels or flats and simple jewelry. Match a denim shirt with leather pants. You can wear the shirt on its own, or you can highlight your feminine form by wearing a sparkly metallic tank top beneath it. You could also try a lace-up boot or some funky, chunky jewelry in gunmetal gray to further glam this look up.
Wear leggings if your shirt is long enough. For tunic style denim shirts that extend past the rear and down to the mid-thigh or longer, leggings can create a look that is both casual and edgy.
Black leggings make the look relaxed, but you could also try a metallic print legging for a funkier twist. Because of how form-fitting leggings are, though, they generally do not look right with shorter shirts.
Wear denim with printed shorts. Since denim is a fairly simple material, you can usually get away with wearing a loud print on your shorts. Bold gray and white stripes are a good example. Make sure that the shorts fit well and appear to be in good shape, though. On the other hand, the denim shirt you pair with the shorts can have a distressed look as long as the denim itself is not too faded or washed out. Finish the look with bold metal accessories in clean, strong lines. Try on white shorts or capri pants.
White is a clean color that works well with just about any wash of denim, but because it gives off an air of crispness, it tends to work better with clean-cut denim shirts that are not distressed. For loose cotton capri pants, try a more fitted denim shirt. For snug capri pants or fitted white shorts, a slightly looser denim shirt may be in order. Match denim with khaki. Long, full-length khaki pants can look out of place with a simple denim shirt unless paired with other pieces that can "class" the denim up or make it look more professional.
Khaki capri pants and shorts do not have this same issue, though, since shorter pants are automatically more casual than long pants by nature. As such, you can get away with wearing a denim shirt with plain khaki bottoms. Gravitate toward simple footwear.
Denim shirts and shorts are both fairly casual pieces, so casual sandals and flats usually make better footwear options than dressy heels or boots. If you wear the denim shirt with a dressy capri pant, however, you could get away with a kitten heel sandal or an embellished flat more easily. Create a feminine look with a long, flowing skirt. Bohemian style maxi skirts, in white, brown, or patterned, work especially well when matched with a clean, non-distressed denim shirt.
Since these skirts tend to by loose-flowing, they generally work best with fitted denim shirts or loose denim shirts that are belted around the waist to create form. Go for texture and print. Girly floral skirts or lace skirts are another way to play off the casual, boyish look of denim to create a surprisingly feminine look. You can either wear these textures and prints on loose-flowing maxi skirts, or you could wear them as tighter-fitting mini skirts and knee-length skirts.
You could even try a ruffled skirt, if it flatters your body shape. To create a more noticeable feminine edge, leave a light-wash button denim shirt open and wear a soft white or plain pastel beneath it. Bring out your leggings. For a fall, winter, or early spring look, match a pencil skirt made from heavy material with a denim shirt, leggings, and fashion boots. If the shirt is loose, tuck it in to create more form; otherwise, you can leave it hanging out.
