Tried-and-True Denim, 2 Ways

by Jill Manoff

We hit the streets in cities across the country to see how stylish locals are wearing denim right now. The result? Tons of pics of totally-individual looks that are easy to copy. These are two of our favorites.

Denim Street Style LA

Look #1: Easy + Breezy in LA
This trendsetter’s outfit seems made for a music festival: It’s super-versatile (Lose the button-down for day, throw it on at night.), effortlessly-cool and virtually-indestructible (thanks to rugged boots and plenty of tough-as-nails denim. Want to cop it for Lolla, or just a day about town? Here’s what you’ll need: Classic cutoffs, a chambray shirt and Western-inspired booties. As for the neon nail polish and statement sunnies? Optional, but totally recommended.

Denim Street Style New York

Look #2: Mixed + Matched in NYC
Found: A perfect example of how to look altogether casual, yet completely put-together. If we had to guess, we’d say this stylish New Yorker started the day at work—but then unbuttoned her blouse, cuffed her jeans, took it down a relaxed notch for an afternoon off the clock. We love that she used a belt to break up her denim-on-denim, and how her fuss-free pony complements the ease of it all. (Indeed, it’s too casual for even a Friday, but it’s oh-so-chic for shopping and lunch!)
