WEEKEND FORECAST: The Power of Denim

Denim is a timeless staple in both men and women’s wardrobes. Through the years (and decades) we’ve seen denim take on many different styles. From bell bottoms to skinny jeans and every other type that falls in the spectrum, we’ve seen that this pant can really establish an outfit’s edge. Jean style makes a difference when completing a look, but the wash of the denim is just as important.

This Fashionisto showed us exactly how the type of jean and wash can determine the look of an outfit. On the bottom he wore a light washed jean with frayed bottoms and a pair of grey converse. On top he sported a bright blue and white pinstripe shirt with a black blazer. If I saw these two halves separate I never thought they would mesh together as one ensemble, but I found this to be a surprisingly fresh and effortless outfit.

If this Fashionisto decided to do a darker denim jean the whole look would have changed. A darker denim with a button down and blazer would automatically dress this outfit up. Choosing the lighter wash made this look more daytime appropriate and casual. To make this even more laid back a rugged and ripped jean would be suitable.

Even though jeans are part of most people’s everyday wardrobe they are not to be underestimated. The right pair of jeans can help an outfit go from average to awesome!

Hint: For various styles of men’s jeans try Urban Outfitters. They have different fits and washes to choose from. My personal favorite are the Cheap Monday grey jeans
