The best thing about denim is they go with everything. Sure, they are comfortable, stylish, classic and a staple piece, but we love them because we can put little thought into an outfit and still look cute.
But what about one of the latest denim pieces that are being spotted everywhere: statement denim. These can be quite intimidating when trying to piece together an outfit that isn’t overwhleming and matches. How do you dress to make your jeans the focus when they are usually a complimentary piece of your outfit?
Keep it simple: Choose tops that are made of chiffon, cotton or polyester and have small unique details that will not take away from your statement jeans. For colors, try opting for neutrals like white, black, grey, brown, tan or mauve tones. This will give you the most flexibility in matching. Don’t over think the shirt, it won’t be the focus of your outfit anyway.
Dress it up or dress it down: The style of the shirt can influence how dressy your outfit appears. Make sure you are choosing appropriate styles for your occasion, whether it be work or a night on the town with friends.
Often times, the statement design of the jeans is at the bottom, so shoes should be fun enough to pull the attention toward the bottom of the jeans, but simple enough that the jeans stay the focus. Consider the style of the jeans and how they are cut when selecting shoes.
Jewelry and Accessories:
Again, this really depends on which direction you want to go with your outfit but a general rule is to play it safer. Simple gold and silver jewelry can often times be enough to complete the look without being distracting. Try to stay away from fashionable belts because it will compete with the unique design of your denim.
Don’t be afraid to take advantage of one of the trendiest denim crazes right now: Statement jeans. You have the pieces in your wardrobe, now all you need a little confidence to rock those statement jeans and turn heads along the way!
