Denim is always there: a staple, a wardrobe must-have, something we all have a lot of in our closets. And yet, like things that are always there for us – hot water, the stars and the moon, our better half – it’s easy to take for granted. Denim doesn’t just have to be a background piece, a foundation for more interesting items. It can be the star of the show too! That’s what Forever 21’s latest campaign #allaboutdenim is for – to celebrate our simple wardrobe hero. To give you some inspiration on how to up your denim ante, I teamed up with my blogger bestie Toni from Fashitects for an editorial shoot with three different denim looks. If you know Toni’s blog (and you should, it’s gorgeous) he’s rarely out of a suit, so styling denim looks with him was a chance for us to both get him into more casual attire as well as demonstrate that denim can be smart too.
Hope you like the editorial beauties! Our photographer was the super-talented Bon, who was so much fun to shoot with even though we only had an hour to get the shots done and were practically running around half-dressed on one of the coldest days of the year, brr! If we’ve inspired you to get creative with your denim, be sure to check out Forever 21 for the pieces we’re wearing in the shoot and much more denim goodness. And head on over to Fashitects for more photos from the shoot! x
