Denim and White With a Twist

July 2nd, 2009

Denim & White with a Twist
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

The quintessential All-American look pairs a fresh white button-down shirt (with the top couple of buttons left unbuttoned) with fitted blue jeans.  It’s crisp, it’s clean, and it’s completely classic.  Add a pair of red shoes (or a red handbag), and it’s a great outfit in which to celebrate the 4th of July.  But what if you want something a little different–and a little less literal?  We’ve put together a sophisticated, feminine look that takes denim and white and adds a bit of a twist.  Here’s how to get the denim and white (with a twist) look:

1.  Instead of blue jeans, reach for a blue denim skirt as the foundation of your outfit.
2.  Add a nice colored blouse.  We love how the green of the blouse complements the classic blue of the denim skirt - and how the ruffles on the blouse echo the ruffles and shirring on the skirt.
3.  Toss on a nice light sweater (optional, depending on how warm it is).  The delicateness of the sweater complements the elegant blouse.
4.  Get your whites on with a summery pair of espadrilles. 
5.  Finish the outfit off with a brightly colored handbag.  We chose to forego red and instead chose a beautiful, vibrant orange.

Wishing you all a very Happy 4th of July!  Have fun, and be safe.  We’ll be back with more fashion fun bright and early next Monday.

    I recently did a white eyelet dress and denim jacket and just loved the resulting look!

    Tricia, fabulous outfit! I love the skirt but wonder if it might be too short for my age? The description said it is 15 inches long. I’m 34 with a slim build and long legs.Do you have any suggestions?
