Polyvore: Denim Control - Blue Collar

The "Denim" trend is back!
Everything denim is what it's about this season.

Lately, I've been into wearing denim-inspired clothes.
I love to dress them up and down, depending on my mood.


These denim oxford shirts are "in" right now.
Everyone is wearing them.
I own about 2 of them and I wear them all the time.

I made a polyvore so I can show you guys different ways to rock these denim collared shirts. :)

1. "Rocker-Chic"


Rock a jean-on-jean look with this ensemble. It's totally in.
You can pair your Denim shirt with different studded accessories to add a rock-ish feel to the outfit.
Finish it off with black lace-up boots and a black messenger bag.
You are ready to rock and roll all night!

2. "A play of Colors"

Red. Red. Red.

You can play a pop of color with this outfit.
Pair your Denim shirt with a pair of white pleated shorts and a brown braided belt.
Pair it with red toms (or any kind of bright shoes you have) and a red messenger bag.
Accessorize it with a straw fedora hat and fun colored bangles.
Now you are dressed to shop til you drop.

3. "Fun and Flirty"


Be your fun and girly self with this combination.
Wear your Denim shirt as a blazer over a floral maxi dress.
Pair it with cute studded brown sandals and a matching brown bag.
Don't forget to add a couple of bangles.
You are set for a stroll on the boardwalk.

Which outfit combination did you like the best? How would you rock a Denim look?

  3. the only denim piece i have in my closet are jeans, a skirt and 2 pairs of shorts :P i'm not really a fan of denim shirts or any other piece of clothing nor denim accessories....but i do like all the combo's u put together :) i think they would look great on anyonne who loves denim!


  4. Wow, what great options! I personally love denim inspired looks, and I think that number 1 would be something I would wear (or at least try to pull it off). I do love those read Toms!

  5. i looooove numbers 2 and 3! i can totally see myself wearing those outfits! i need to get a denim top first, though. ;)
