BTS in Denim

Going back to school can be dreadful, but with the right wardrobe in place you will be ready to wake up every morning and hit campus with confidence.  The perfect back to school style doesn’t end after the first day, it continues through first and second semester.  I’ve put together a collection of some of my most popular looks (all include denim). Everyone owns denim, but not everyone knows how to wear it.
 Take your distressed jeans to the next level with edgy layers.  I chose a bralette with fringe and pulled some out over the tank, I loved playing up the patches and rips on the jeans with a distressed tank.  Since this outfit has a lot of elements, I finished the look with simple sneakers and straight locks.

 Give your favorite cut-offs a more polished look with a button up. I love a more relaxed fit of cut-offs that hit around mid-thigh.  The button up acts as a perfect blank slate for making this look your own, you can layer over or under and add accessories of your liking. If walking the halls in heels isn’t your thing, pair this look with a gladiator or your favorite flat sandal.  I threw my hair into a messy bun to finish off this simple yet chic look.
 If you really want to dive deep into the denim trend, go for the Canadian Tuxedo.  While the original look is hard to pull off  (denim shirt and jeans), this light wash denim skirt and chambray shirt is definitely socially acceptable.  The “mom skirt”, as I like to call it, is your new staple piece for fall, pairing it with a similar toned chambray is the perfect summer to fall transitional look.  To keep this look casual for day-time, I paired with retro Nikes and minimal jewelry.
 This minimal look has maximum style.  Start with your favorited relaxed fit jean and a graphic tee, then embellish!  I chose a white blazer with a red patterned pump to make this look more street-style chic.  A cuffed jean and pump are a match made in heaven, it’s the perfect way to show off your favorite heels in a casual way.  I finished off this look with a bold lip and mismatched jewelry.

If you really want to step up your back to school style, this is the look for you.  This years hottest pant is definitely the culotte, invest in a pair.  The only way to rock them is with confidence so this look is not for everyone.  A boxy summer sweater adds the perfect balance to the wide-legged pant.  I paired this outfit with chunky heels, square sunnies, and a large bangle… go big or go home!
