We were sure to don our best pair of blue jeans last Wednesday in solidarity with Denim Day – a movement started 18 years ago by Peace Over Violence encouraging people worldwide to wear jeans as a stand against misconceptions and destructive attitudes around sexual assault.
This jean-clad Wednesday was first and foremost focused on supporting the campaign for prevention and education in this space, and we were proud to represent. But having everyone in the office in our finest dungarees got us chatting about how we’re totally digging denim right now.
As we were pulling together some our favorite spring wardrobe items to share with you all, we decided to infuse the list with some of our favorite blue denim pieces. We think every day is a good day to support causes you believe in, and confidently rock your skinnies while you’re at it. So in support of Denim Day and the #noexuse campaign, here are our top picks for spring, so you can sport some chambray everyday.
1. Must-have skinnies
We have to start this list off with some of our team’s favorite jeans of the season. First up is this dark wash from AG Jeans, perfect for those summer Fridays to come. If you’re going for more of a weekend-casual look, you can’t beat this semi-destroyed skinny crop from Madewell in a classic blue hue.
2. Dressy denim
We love this Free People denim tunic that you can layer over leggings on cooler days or go a bit more daring with it as a mini dress when things heat up. If you want a little more coverage with your denim wear – look no further than this classic shirt dress from Oliver Bonas.
3. Favorite frocks
We’ve been anxiously awaiting the return of flowy, breezy dresses and this Free People embroidered minidress fits the bill. When you need to dress your night up a bit, we absolutely love this floor-length gown from Show Me Your Mumu.
4. One-piece wonders
Too busy to bother with wardrobe choices? That’s where one-pieces, jumpsuits and rompers come in. Get dressed in half the time with this trendy take on a denim playsuit from 7 For All Mankind. We also love the pretty print and classic styling of this Warehouse jumpsuit.
5. Go-to jackets
We couldn’t have done a denim-drenched edit without including a jean jacket or two. The cut and color of this trucker style jacket from Levi’s is one of our favorites, and when the weather warms up, just make the switch to this Lucky Brand vest.
6. Statement shoes
Both of these kicks are sure to make a statement in any spring wardrobe. Our first pick from Marc Fisher has it all: the “I scream spring” espadrille detailing, the functionality of a sneaker, the added boost of a platform, and have we mentioned it’s on sale, too?! We’re also crazy about this lace-up sandal from Sam Edelman that comes in a perfect pink you can easily dress up or down.
