August is here! I can't believe we are in the final weeks of summer. The season has been a blast but its winding down, and it's time to start thinking about what you need for Fall. I know, part of me wishes I could play on the beach for months on end. But something about Fall fashion gets me so excited to dress up and play with my wardrobe again. Goodbye lazy sundresses, hello creative layering and textures!
August is also the unofficial start of denim season. The style staples comes to life in so many different forms. Classic jeans, vintage oversized jackets, cutoff shorts and tailored skirts are just a few options to work into your wardrobe.
In addition to classic styles, love seeing the familiar fabric in unexpected ways. For example, this cutout maxi dress from one of my fave sites, Revolve.com is absolutely killer. It looked great online but was downright SEXY SEXY in person. Some would say that the combo of a plunging neckline, thigh high slits on each leg, and an open back would be too much, but I am living for it. I tamed it a bit with a peek-a-boo bralette to keep from flashing all of New York City, and a black moto jacket. Peep-toe leather booties played up the biker babe vibe.
It's a standout piece for sure! If this is too daring for you, there are a ton of ways to spice up your classic denim. I like playing with interesting silhouettes, like a structured skirt or feminine, almost formal shapes.
Check out 10 of my favorite denim pieces that will have you ready for the new season in no time! I especially love the denim slip dress and wide-legged cropped jumpsuit. Just remember - denim may be a wardrobe staple but there is no reason for it to be boring!
