Move Over, Jeans: 18 Ways To Refresh Your Wardrobe With Denim

Step aside, jeans! Denim is for more than just accentuating your booty. We’re crushing hard on these denim tops, shoes, and accessories. Check out these 18 ways to don denim in all its glory, without having to shimmy into your skinnies.

 

Denim Vest

2 / 18

A jean vest is another useful staple, especially when it’s too hot outside for a jacket. Layer it over an off-the-shoulder dress or a high-neck top and skirt.

Button-Up Jean Skirt

5 / 18

These skirts with buttons down the front have quickly become one of the year’s most popular trends, so of course we’re giving a shout-out to this dark-wash version from Nordstrom Rack. We like the idea of pairing it with boots and a jacket for fall.

Denim Shortsleeve

6 / 18

The ’90s won’t ever go out of style—so you’d better get your hands on a denim shirt ASAP. This shirt from GAP totally reminds us of something Uncle Jesse (or DJ or Stephanie) would wear on Full House, but it’s still totally chic for today with modern styling.

Jean Jumpsuit

7 / 18

Want to rock jean from head to toe, but clueless about mixing and matching denims? Enter: jumpsuit. This chambray ensemble would look fierce with heeled sandals and a statement purse.

White Denim Jacket

8 / 18

Mix up your denims with this white jean jacket. We think it’d look trendy with a floral dress and booties or black-and-white stripes.

Distressed Denim Boots

9 / 18

All the edginess of ripped jeans without actually having to wear pants—our wishes have come true. These badass thigh-high boots would complete a leather mini perfectly.

 

To buy: Privileged Shoes Denim Boots, Forever 21, $136.50

 

Crochet Denim Romper

11 / 18

This romper puts an entirely different spin on denim with its dainty crocheted detail. We think it’d look best with tan or nude wedges to give the illusion of mile-long legs.

Denim Baseball Cap

12 / 18

Bad hair day? Denim to the rescue! This hat is simple enough to match almost any outfit, so no matter when unruly hair strikes, you’ll be prepared.

Frayed Denim Skirt

Another take on the jean skirt is this frayed style by Rag & Bone. The messy hems would go well with a band tee and sneakers.

Up your choker game with this cool denim necklace. An all-black outfit would complement the blue jean nicely.
