Spring makes me so ready for denim. While I love denim, there are some looks that I will not do…y’all remember Justin Timberlake’s and Britany Spears’ denim ensembles several years ago? That look is a no go for me!
Denim is one of those fabrics that looks great on everyone and is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe and the look that you are going for in the spring. Denim can be dressed up or dressed down (y’all know I love versatility). The looks that you can create with denim are endless and therefore if you were to splurge on anything this spring, I’d say splurge on a couple of denim pieces. I like to splurge on my jeans because fit is very important to me when you are wearing jeans. The wrong fit can ruin your entire look.
With that being said, there are 5 denim pieces that you NEED in your wardrobe this spring; I threw in a trendier item (the off the shoulder shirt) to illustrate how building the foundation of your wardrobe gives you more looks, but also allows you to play with trends effortlessly. What denim pieces will you be rocking this spring?

This off the shoulder peplum shirt from boohoo.com is so cute and boho. Pair this with skinny jeans or shorts for an effortless vibe.
So, a denim pencil skirt has been on my ‘to get’ list for maybe two years now. This spring I am going to certainly take the plunge and grab one. This one from ASOS is perfect to dress up or dress down. You can wear flats, sneakers, or heels with this to switch up the feel of your look. Definitely a staple piece for the spring.
I mean flares are everywhere these days. I love my Express flared jeans because they give me the extra height that I crave and are super slimming for my shape. These two can be dressed up or down. I would recommend keeping your tops more fitted to balance out the bottoms of your flares. For an ultra casual and effortless look, pair your flares with a white tank, a chunky heel, a wide brim hat and you are good to go.
Skinny jeans are a must this spring. Levi’s are my favorite brand of jean overall with their skinnys reigning King to me. With their wide range of fits to accommodate most shapes, you are sure to find the pair that works best for you. Pair these with your favorite pumps or sneakers and you are ready to go!
I mean how classic is The Denim Jacket? I remember having a denim jacket in my wardrobe since I was in grade school. It is the perfect piece to add a casual layer in the spring when the temps drop at night or on breezy days. This bad boy can go with just about anything. You can also add brooches to add a bit of personality to it. This H&M one is going for $20…I mean, steal, maybe?
