How To: Wear 5 Different Styles of Denim

Forget diamonds – denim is a girl’s best friend. While skinnies aren’t going anywhere, this spring there is an abundant of new styles out there. From dungaree dresses to girlfriend jeans to super distressed, denim is EVERYWHERE. See how our ‘Girl in Focus’ Bianca Solterbeck will be wearing her denim this spring.

The Dungaree Dress

Anyone else having flashbacks but seriously, how cute is this dress? Wear it just like you would any denim skirt - over a t-shirt with sneakers, over a sweater with booties or with a fitted blouse and heels.

The Embroidered

Alright ladies, embroidered denim is officially a trend. Over the past year, embroidery popped up on bombers, dresses, bags, shoes...so why not denim?

The Distressed Girlfriend

Think of a girlfriend jean as your boyfriend jean's slimmer, high-waisted counterpart. Still slouchy and relaxed but a little sexier. Pair with anything cropped or with your favourite blouse tucked in. Looking for some extra style points - reach for a pair with a frayed hem.
