The Denim Button Up…With A Twist?
I don’t think anyone is clueless when it comes to the classic denim button up..male or female. I’ve seen this styled in many ways. Wrapped around the waist, tied up, and my favorite way…paired with more denim. The denim button has become a necessary item to have in your closet.
I was on Instagram one day and I kept seeing this picture of a denim top, but it wasn’t the average denim top. It was a pair a jeans transformed into a denim top….YES a pair of jeans. This picture went viral! I had never even thought that was possible to turn a pair of jeans into a wearable top.This original picture came from a young woman’s Instagram (denimnpearls) , located in Indianapolis.
I love denim soooo I decided to bring out my inner designer and put my own creation together. I went to the thrift store and bought a few pairs of jeans to test it out own. I bought a pair that was my size, a size smaller, and a size bigger. Of course the first pair I tried was terrible and I became discouraged when the second pair turned out horrific! I was down to the denim that was smaller than my normal size. This time I took my time and strategically cut along the seams of the jeans and the rest was MAGIC! I was so proud of myself…I’m no seamstress, but if you have that urge in you…you can make anything happen! I created this look with just a pair of scissors!
I’m not the only one who saw the blue jean top and went crazy. TheNuVogue created her own version as well.
Not really into trying to figure out how to make this top…Don’t worry! There’s a wonderful alternative to this look. There has been a new wave of women taking a fitted blue jean jacket and wearing it as a top. The next time you’re trying to figure out what to wear for a causal night on the town. Try pairing the denim jacket with a pair of jeans or a fitted skirt.
