As you know I am a forever denim girl. When in doubt it’s always denim for me. Even when I am not in doubt. I attribute it to being born and raised in Southern CA. There is just something relaxed and easy going about denim. But that doesn’t mean denim always has to be casual.
When dressing up denim I opt for colored denim such as black or even coated denim (that look of faux leather). Darker washes or coated jeans instantly dress up a denim outfit and takes away the casualness of it allowing it to be suitable for going out. Accessories also play a huge role in dressing up denim including jewelry, shoes, and bags. Below are some of my tips for dressing up denim as we get into fall.
/ Tips for Dressing Up Denim /
- Choose darker denim washes or coated denim
- Wear a dressy top (think lace camisoles, bodysuits, off the shoulder) or even rich fabrics like tweed, velvet, or sequins
- Shoes make a difference so add some heels
- Accentuate the waist with a belt
- Add a nighttime bag like a clutch or a shoulder bag
This date night outfit encompasses all of my tips for dressing up denim with the exception of a belt. I like the button details on these Topshop jeans so pairing a belt with all the buttons seemed a bit unnecessary. I added my favorite jewelry as of late by Via Saviene as well as my Chanel pumps with pearl detail on the heels and I am ready to go out!
