Cute Denim Outfit Ideas
Unlike some other fabrics such as corduroy and velvet, which are normally only worn in the Fall and Winter, denim works great no matter the time of year. It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the look you’re going for and it’s not limited to denim jeans either. You have jean jackets, button-down shirts, skirts, dresses, and a summertime staple, of course, cut-off denim shorts. So many options. So many outfit ideas! From street style to high fashion it’s hard to go wrong with denim.
So! I’m rounding up some of my favorite cute denim outfit ideas that you can pull inspo from any time. I’ll be updating this post with new outfits periodically, so be sure to check back every now and then!
Cute denim outfit ideas.
Denim shorts are pretty much my summertime uniform. These shorts from Levi’s are a favorite of mine because they’re high-waisted but don’t ride up and give you a horrible wedgie.
I usually pair my short shorts with a larger, looser top to balance out the outfit. I love wearing mine with a light and airy cotton button-down and some slides or sandals.
A jean jacket is usually the perfect weight for summer evenings. You can wear them with anything but I particularly like to wear mine with dresses. If you’re looking for a new jacket, a few of my favorites are made from these brands.
If you’re going to be wearing head-to-toe denim, there are a couple of things to keep in mind while planning your outfit.
- The first is to pair different shades of denim together. Like a lighter shirt and darker bottoms that I’m wearing in the above picture. Keep in mind that that darker shades are more slimming, that’s why I always darker jeans and lighter denim up top.
- Mix up distressed pieces with more polished pieces. Distressed denim is more relaxed and will help your outfit not look like a uniform.
- Breakup the denim by mixing in some other colors. A white t-shirt under a denim jacket does this perfectly.
Besides being a classic summer look, any outfit is elevated when the denim is switched to white.
White jeans can be paired with absolutely any color and look good. But a few favorite color combinations of mine are white on white, light blue and neutrals like beige are effortlessly classic.
Cropped and Casual
Cropped and cuffed jeans worn with a small tank or crop top are pretty much my summer uniform and favorite way to style jeans. When worn with a blazer you can take this look from day to night by switching out sneakers for heels.
