How to Incorporate Denim Into Your Grownup Wardrobe


Denim is pretty much the longest-running fashion staple of all time, dating all the way back to the late 1800s – and for good reason! Tough-wearing and universally flattering, denim works no matter what your personal style is.

As you get older, you may find you wear denim less – maybe because you’re spending your life in more formal workwear, or conversely, chilling out in trendy athleisure pieces. Given denim is a back-to-school must-have for the younger set, now’s the perfect time to look at your own denim wardrobe for a refresh. Spending a little on a few key pieces can go a long way to updating your closet and making getting dressed in the morning fun (and chic!) again. Here are 7 denim looks that are all grown up!
