How to Style a Denim Shirt

Hey, everyone! You’ve seen September denim on the blog once before (#tbt), and it’s back again this year in shirt form! The denim shirt is such a great layering piece; it looks great buttoned up or opened over your favorite dress, crop top, or graphic tee. It can be hard to get dressed in the morning with the tricky transitioning weather, but layering with a denim shirt makes things easier. When it’s colder in the mornings and afternoons, throw the shirt on, but midday when the sun’s at its most intense, you can take it off to stay cool.

In this post, I wore my denim shirt from Tobi over my favorite Pokemon crop top with jeans. I picked this shirt because it’s a longer length (you can wear it with leggings and have your 🍑 covered) and I was also drawn to the frayed detailing on the edges (it gives it more of a western vibe!). How have you styled your denim shirts? Let me know in the comments!

Shirt: Tobi

Crop top: O-Mighty (similar here)

Jeans: Urban Outfitters

Shoes: Dr. Martens

    Chambray / Denim button up shirts are a staple in my winter wardrobe. They look great with a sweater on top too!

    I miss having a chambray shirt in my wardrobe! It’s on my list of things to add.

      Yesss it’s so essential! I used to have so many in high school but between moving so many times they all disappeared. I’m so glad to have one back in my life.
