At this point, you've probably caught on that I love to curate a great collection of wardrobe basics in my closet. From turtlenecks to oversize button-down shirts, there’s no shortage of cool basics straight off of the runways that are in the pipeline for spring. But there’s another one that I’ve been seeing bubbling up on the Instagram fashion scene as well: denim shirts.
Yep, the top has been popping up everywhere recently and I’ve been taking notes on cool ways to style the top. Whether you’re pairing one with a midi skirt, sweatpants, or tailored pants, there are endless cool ways to wear one. Or, you could always slip into a head-to-toe denim look—in my opinion, the perfect balance of casual and cool. But there’s even more inspiration for how to pull it off. Here are nine stylish ways to wear denim shirt outfits, straight from the fashion set.
A denim-on-denim look

I truly never get tired of all-denim looks but always love to see fresh takes on them. Here, I think the top tucked into slightly flared jeans is the perfect sleek (but casual) outfit.
With a midi skirt

I've had my eye on denim midi skirts for a few years now but have never been able to figure out how to pull one off. This outfit pairing the long skirt with a denim button-down and knee-high boots is definitely one I want to copy immediately.
Add sleek boots

What really makes this outfit work? The white tee and collared shirt that are layered underneath the denim top. Add a pair of sleek boots and it's simply flawless.
With '90s-inspired jeans

If there's one style lesson I've picked up on in general these days, it's the movement to add upsized pieces into your wardrobe. Sometimes the baggy silhouettes can be tricky to pull off but it's all about balancing proportions.
Add one to cozy sweatpants

If you're still living in sweatpants like I am, here's a cool way to make them feel fresh. Add a pair of slides and you have the ultimate comfy outfit.
