A denim button up is my go-to when I don’t know what to wear. My usual match is leggings with cheetah flats or boots, but it’s warming up now so I’m finding myself experimenting. I do this thing when the seasons change where I try on all my clothes, mixing and matching outfits for the upcoming weather. Lately, I’ve been playing around with my spring outfits and I found my favorite denim top. Here are some not-so-usual ways to play up or dress down a simple basic shirt.
With spring finally here, colored or floral bottoms are already popular and being worn often. Instead of wearing a plain tee with them, make your outfit a little edgy by wearing a button-up instead. It’s also perfect to wear on top of a basic tee if the weather is colder.
Denim on Denim
It’s risky, but when perfected it looks amazing. You have to find the perfect style and color to pull it off. I’d go for a style like above; a dark plain jean and a top with hints of pale blue or gray. If the colors are too much alike they might mesh together and look like one piece of clothing.
With a flashy statement necklace
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of chunky jewelry. I find myself usually wearing studs, simple necklaces, and maybe a couple rings, but a statement necklace can really dress up a button-down. I’d try this look on a date night or if I’m going out with friends. It’s laid back, but with a hint of girly.
With a touch of leather
Now leather bottoms I’m a huge fan of. In the winter you can rock this look with leather leggings and in the summer, shorts or a skirt. I’ve worn my button down with leggings before and I love the look of the two materials against each other.
Some other ways to wear a denim button down could be with a maxi skirt, a floral spring dress, or even as a cover up on the beach. The reason I love them so much is you can mix and match them with just about anything!
