A Reintroduction To Wearing Denim Jeans

Allow denim to reintroduce itself.

Style

As the world slowly begins to reopen from the devastation caused by the novel coronavirus and the subsequent pandemic, many of us are beginning to revisit the clothing we've set aside. As our everyday lives shrunk to the confinements of our own home, our staple wardrobe was slowly replaced by a leisure lifestyle dominated by our favorite oversized t-shirts and cozy knits. With denim jeans being the most abandoned, they're now creeping back onto our wardrobe radar.

Here are four examples of how you can jump into those neglected jeans once again, confidently conquering the outside world (or the inside world) like never before.

Look 1: Denim Jeans With A Statement Blazer

As we begin to dine at our favorite restaurants, straight leg denim jeans are versatile for any outfit in mind. With knits being a current staple of our quarantine style, we can comfortably transition this lovable trend by throwing on a matching lightweight blazer which is perfect for a patio lunch date.

While most of our social lives have dwindled significantly, we are anxiously awaiting the moment to reunite with our loved ones. Ideal for a night on the town, destroyed denim is the chicest of them all. Get dressed pairing a white tee along with a stylish mule and pillow clutch as we once again enjoy a casual chic night out on the town.

Look 3: Wide-Legged Denim Jeans With A Puff Sleeve Crop Top

If being indoors has taught us one thing, it's increased our admiration for the outside world by sparking a desire to spend more time in nature. Wear a wide-leg cropped denim pant paired with a short puffed sleeve crop top to enjoy a cute outdoor picnic. Add a pop of spring with a brightly colored wrap-around sandal, another exciting element to this casual look. A small step into post-quarantine, this outfit will enhance a delicious stress-free picture-perfect reintroduction into normal life.

Look 4: Light-Wash Denim Jeans With A Satin Blouse

Satin is the perfect lightweight material to enjoy a silky green puff sleeve paired with a mom jean. The perfect high waist denim for crop tops, this pair of jeans allows maximum coverage with a conservative pop of skin. By pairing this ensemble with a flat sandal, this look is the ideal cute and casual outfit for a romantic stroll to your local farmers market.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
