Fashion: Denim For Days!
This fashion staple is getting a facelift
Day or night, the love we have for denim is now finding a ramped up place in fashion. You’ll see it on the sidelines of a Saturday morning football game or even strutting its way into finer dining establishments on date night. The fashion staple has become more refined with better quality fit and finer washes, which only gives us permission to dress it up. From shoes and accessories to dresses and hoodies, the look of denim is definitely taking center stage this fall.
Denim has gotten a make-over and it’s one that is more refined. Move over distressed denim, this jean-leather combo makes looking feminine and shapely easier than ever. The best jeans for fall 2015 are plain and simple, but don’t forget a slouchy and free-feeling cuff. Glamourize your skim-fitted denim with accessories like an oversized hat. It’s guaranteed to be an attention grabbing combination.
