Wearing a denim shirt is essentially a no-brainer but wearing it without looking man-ish and maintaining your femininity can be a little difficult. A well-made, soft fabric denim shirt will instantly become a staple for your wardrobe that has the flexibility to be worn year-round.
The first thing to consider when buying a denim shirt is the fit, buy one that has a feminine fitted shape that hugs your curves and defines your waist in order to avoid looking like you stole it from your husband’s closet.
Denim shirts looks amazing when paired with black pants (tucked into wide leg trousers with sky high stilettos or worn with ankle-length capris and ballet flats). Keep your accessories feminine, think brightly colored shoes, dainty belts, an armful of bangles or layered necklaces.
Jewelry instantly glamorizes denim:
Go a step forward in feminizing a denim shirt by wearing it with a pencil skirt in everything from a plain fabric to lace to sequins. It will also look great paired under a sweater, untucked with the tails hanging out, overly a brightly colored skirt. Try wearing a denim shirt under a sleeveless dress for a fun winter look.
Replace your standard white or french blue button-down shirt with a denim shirt when wearing a black, gray or tan suit. It will provide an unexpected pop of color and texture.
Wear a denim shirt as a jacket over a sleeveless, glitzy, going out top or party dress.
A denim shirt is also a perfect barn staple, looking instantly chic worn with the collar popped up, a string a pearls and your breeches and boots.
