On Trend: Denim Shirts

There are certain pieces that BELONG in your wardrobe. Those tried and true, can’t-believe-you-ever-went-without-them pieces that you reach for again and again. A denim shirt my friends, is one of those pieces.

While the classic button-up denim shirt is nothing new, this season the denim shirt has gone next level. There are button-ups, off-the-shoulders, long tunics, belted kimonos, embroidered peasant blouses, structured blouses with jabot collars – you name it, it’s probably available in denim.

No matter what you choose, pair with mini skirts, dress pants, pleated midis, leather leggings and jeans, yes jeans because the Canadian Tuxedo is alive and well this year.

Levis Sidney Boyfriend Shirt

Everything a denim shirt should be - comfortable, relaxed, versatile. Pair with denim (yes, denim on denim is a thing), with leather, with a midi skirt...the possibilities, much like your love for this shirt, know no bounds.

Available at Plenty $98*

BB Dakota Maci Denim Off-the-Shoulder Shirt

Although it's technically a dress, this off-the-shoulder ruffled piece looks great tucked into high-waisted pants or worn long over skinny jeans.

Available at Privilege Clothing $120*

RD Style Lyocell Sleeveless Button-Down Tunic

Another dress/shirt hybrid that can be worn on it's own with runners or booties or layered over skinnies as either a top or a long vest.

1969 Fitted Denim Shirt

Looking for a versatile denim shirt? Opt for a light wash like this classic fitted button-down from Gap. The lighter colour pairs wonderfully with white, medium or dark blue denim and adds a bit of contrast (unless of course you're going for full-on matching denim on denim).

Available at Gap $64.95*

Design Lab Lord & Taylor Off-the-Shoulder Top

This is definitely not your basic denim shirt. Style with skinnies, paper-bag waist pants or leather for a totally on-point look. Bonus points for combining 2 of this season's hottest trends - off-the-shoulder and flounced sleeves.

Available at Hudson's Bay $78*

Are you a classic, a boyfriend-style or a fun and flirty kind of denim shirt gal?
