Back in the good old days of 2004, I saw nothing wrong with pairing my floral denim jacket with my favorite pair of denim jeans. Back then, denim fashion was not viewed as tacky. From Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears to Destiny’s Child, it was clear there was no limit to denim potential. Fast forward to 2017, denim fashion is making a major comeback. So here are two denim looks that will help you channel 2004 pop culture.
1. Denim overalls are now chic, not country.
After hunting for either a nice denim skirt or a pair of denim overalls one weekend, I ran into a mix of both, a mini denim overall dress. The light denim shade was the perfect addition to my collection, and the price tag was completely affordable. When it comes to styling the dress, I love to wear either a graphic t-shirt or short sleeve crop top underneath. Sometimes to add a bit of flare, I will only fasten half of the top, which is great when I wear a graphic t-shirt with it.
2. Denim on.. denim?
One of my favorite pieces of clothing in my closet is my oversized denim jacket. Straight from the 1980s and a gift from my best friend’s grandmother, I think the jacket is the perfect addition to any outfit. Last fall, I began to experiment with pairing the jacket with other denim bases. Whenever I decide to wear the jacket with jeans, I wear high-waisted light blue jeans. The two shades are at different ends of the spectrum which prevent them from clashing. As for the top, I wear a simple white crop top and complete the look with a pair of sneakers.
