Styling Inspiration to Help Ease You Back into Denim

Here's the silhouette we'll be living in.

Easing out of our sweatpants and back into denim promises to be a difficult transition no matter how ready for it we may be. The thought of stiff buttoned plackets cutting into our rib cages all day is less than appealing. So the task then rests on finding the most hospitable forms of denim, i.e., something with a wide-leg, relaxed silhouette. And in case you were lost for ways to style the denim in question, we've provided you with five stylish ensembles that will hopefully spark some excitement in your sartorially deprived brains. From stuffing the legs in tall boots to unique layering tricks, here's how we'll be embracing denim this spring.

Patterned Tank + Cropped Jacket

For those of you who embrace color in moderation, we recommend opting for navy or blue denim separates while letting a patterned tank just peek out from beneath. Simple brown leather shoes will then ground the look.

Tall Boots + Sweater

Tall boots aren't just for skinny jeans. Stuff a pair of wide-leg denim into a Western-inspired pair—just make sure there's enough room. Keep the rest of the outfit simple to keep things balanced.

Once things get a little warmer, a short-sleeve, patterned shirt practically screams summer fun. Layer it with a crochet tank and a dark blue wash jean, and you've found a day-to-night look worthy of any event.

Puff-Sleeve Blouse + Flats

In case you needed to polish things up a bit, a puff-sleeve blouse with an interesting silhouette is your best friend. Plus, we love the way she cuffs her oversize jeans to show off her ballet flats.

We love an ensemble that serves as a frame for statement accessories, particularly this architectural belt. A silk button-down and white boots are the perfect complementary options.
