Have you ever considered wearing denim on denim? Whether you have or not, denim on denim can look very chic. The trick is to wear a contrasting wash on the top from the bottom.
I paired a light wash chambray (denim) button up with a pair of dark wash, distressed skinny jeans. Then I paired them with a silver chain and pearls necklace and a black studded skinny belt. I really like the country casual look of the chambray top. Tucking it in and adding a skinny belt and sliver chains and pearls necklace took it from casual to dressy.
Then I added a pair of maroon, suede, studded booties. The booties add a fun little pop of color to the outfit.
And for the complete outfit…
