Reinvent Your Denim Shirt With 3 Not-So-Basic Looks For Men

Reinvent Your Denim Shirt With 3 Not-So-Basic Looks For Men

   Nitika Jain

Our romance with denim has been a never-ending one. In fact, if there’s one denim item that will reign the fashion scene forever, it’s a denim shirt. It is interesting to note that the denim shirt has always been celebrated in American history thanks to its glorious association with the heroic cowboy. Keeping aside American culture tales of the rodeo, this shirt is now seen as a wardrobe essential. Which is why we decided to amp the denim shirt in not-so-basic ways. Check out how our stylists have curated three stylish looks for men using a denim shirt.

Denim & Layers

You’ve often tried denim on denim, a favourite denim styling technique. We’ve decided to skip the basic and team up pinstripe trousers with denim to break its monotony. You can wear it like a shirt or you can choose to layer it over a grey tee. It will make for a visual treat to keep the trousers and t-shirt of the exact hue and layer it with a contrasting denim washed-out shirt. Take your look a notch higher by adding interesting details like a scarf. And of course, we can’t reiterate how white sneakers always seal the deal.

Work It With Cargos

Take your casual, effortless appeal to another level by teaming the classic denim shirt with cargos. Now that’s what you call an ode to the industrial revolution that begot enigmatic denims. Since everything in your look is simple and muted, you can add some quirky details, like a boyish backpack or striped shoes, or both. Talk about sophomore feels but with more style.

Dress It Up

Thought your denim shirt was too casual? You thought wrong. Well-tailored pants (in black or beige), dapper slip-on shoes, a good watch, and you’re ready to be floored by your own reflection in the mirror. We think this is a perfect outfit to hit the club in or wear to a casual work space. Hair and beard groomed right and there, we can already see you winning hearts.
