1 denim shirt, wear it 8 ways

A little while back I did a post on 2 denim shirts I had bought and why I loved them so much – because denim pretty much goes with anything! I saw this on Pinterest earlier and it does a pretty good job of showing you just how versatile a denim shirt is. Here are 8 ways you can wear a denim shirt.

Trends I love – bomber jackets

Last year I bought myself a brown bomber jacket from Woolies and have worn it a hundred times! It really was a great buy. I wanted a jacket in brown to have a bit of a break from all the black in my wardrobe and when I saw it on the rack I knew it was the one.

A few weeks ago while browsing through Woolies I came across this gorgeous black quilted bomber. I immediately put my bag down and tried it on. It looked amazing and I knew it was my new jacket for winter.

The bomber jacket isn’t very feminine but luckily you can make them look a little more girlie when you pair them with florals, lace, dresses and skirts. Mine is a black quilted pleather bomber (another trend I currently love is leather!) but if that’s not your scene I’ve seen others online in soft floral fabrics as well. Most of the time I pair my jackets with a white tee and jeans and then either boots or pumps. This year sneakers are in, and there are some great styles and colours to choose from, so I’ll probably finish my outfit off with some sneakers for more of a sporty look.

These are some great jackets I found on Pinterest.

Polka dot skirt

While it’s still warm I’m really enjoying my new spotty skater skirt (R199) from Woolies. When I first saw it I immediately decided it would be too short for me and didn’t take it. A friend told me not to be so quick to dismiss it and get it. I left the shop that day and went back another day to try it on. I am not a fan of my legs so if a skirt or shorts look short I don’t usually buy them. This, however, was not as short as I had thought before trying it on. It actually looks great and is 100% viscose so it’s nice and cool in summer!

Lace shirt

Another item I had had my eye on was this beautiful top with it’s beautiful detail (R350). I am mad about this style and love wearing tops like this with a pair of jeans and heels. It’s polyester and cotton so also nice and light for hot summer days.

Needless to say I went home with both items that day. Thank you Woolies!

Crazy about denim

light denim shirt

Two items in my wardrobe that I wear all of the time are sleeveless denim shirts I got from Mr Price. I couldn’t decide between a light denim or darker denim so in the end I bought both. The great thing about denim is you can wear it with pretty much anything – lace, aztec print, leopard print, leather or pair it with denim in a lighter or darker shade.

Change up your look with some accessories like a bold statement necklace and you can either button the shirt up fully or leave a button or two open. If you don’t feel like wearing any accessories you don’t need to either. You decide if you want to dress it up or dress it down.

Add some denim to your wardrobe and fall in love with it like I have!
