Knockdown Blues

In Denver, we live in denim. Whether low-rise or cropped, sandblasted or vintage-dyed, day after day, denim is the one thing we all reach for. But denim isn’t always blue and it doesn’t have to be jeans. This spring, white jeans are making a comeback and denim skirts, jackets, and dresses are everywhere. i Denim is the starting point for any outfit – the fun part is pairing it with the perfect top. Add a little frill with a simple peasant blouse or a sassy tank, or go all out for the Western look. i Whatever the combination, prepare to knock ’em out with these knockdown blues.
