How To Wear it

Casual Work-Chic Make denim office-friendly by pairing it with a solid-color silk blouse and a neutral blazer. Add a classic pointed-toe pump, thin bracelets, and a chain-strap shoulder bag.

Drinks With The Girls Bring out denim’s fun side with a floral print chiffon blouse. Toughen up the look with stacked-heel platform sandals, ethnic bangles, and an oversize clutch.

Weekend Brunch Go slightly slouchy with hip must-haves like a gray short-sleeve sweatshirt or graphic-print T-shirt. Finish with sporty, wide-strap flat sandals and a hobo-style carryall.

Date Night Dress up pastels with a beaded T-shirt or tank top for a flirty and glamorous evening look. Top it off with a sexy, strappy sandal, drop earrings, and a minaudière.
