There are so many ways to style a denim shirt but knowing how to dress it up isn’t as easy. Ultimately a denim shirt is… well, denim, which is mostly a casual fabric. But there are some great ways to dress it up that will have you ready for work or parties. This light blue denim shirt was perfect for the warm spring day and layering it with an orange coat worked well for a long day at a business event. The tailored detail of the coat gives the outfit some polished sophistication, while the bold colour adds some fun. This look also works as great inspiration for styling an orange coat. Just like with how to dress up a graphic t-shirt, pairing more tailored pieces like blazers and coats with casual clothing will usually dress up the look.
Getting the smart-casual balance right with business and style can sometimes be tricky but it’s certainly not impossible. When required, it’s important to come across professional whilst still displaying your personal style. So for some added detail, the black ruffles skirt was a lovely addition. A statement black skirt usually works well to dress up a casual top, like the denim shirt because it adds glamour. Although a pair of heels would have really dressed this outfit up all the way, comfort and practicality chose the flats. Thankfully the simple design, suede material and gold buckle detail still make the outfit look put together and adds some charm.
