What’s better than denim on a Saturday afternoon? Add a comfy pair of sneakers, a classic white shirt, some subtle sparkle and you have the perfect recipe for dressed up sporty. Casual lifestyles call for easy care fabrics and nothing says that better for me than denim.
Weekends are all about relaxing and often mean running around town. Slip-on sneakers, a crisp white shirt, and my favorite black jeans topped with a denim duster fit the bill without looking overdressed…although I have nothing against overdressing.
I have several pairs of black jeans but these Parker Smiths from Artful Home are the most flattering and comfortable. To keep these basics from looking pedestrian, I added a touch of crystal, some sparkle and a bold bracelet.
Accessories take center stage in this outfit. Swap out the sneakers, omit the jewelry and you have a very different look. I opted for a navy handbag to keep everything casual. I haven’t used this navy handbag for many years and am so glad I kept it. It’s true that navy’s seldom match but neither do blacks so don’t let it bother you.
This duster is a denim dress that I simply left unsnapped. I like the length and shirttail hem for an outer layer but I’d never wear it as a dress. It’s on sale this weekend with the code PRES.
Double or triple pieces of denim in the same outfit often look best when they’re different colors or noticeably different tones. This duster would look great with white jeans and a simple tee or dark denim jeans and a colorful tee.
Do you dress up denim or reserve it for super casual?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
