5 Denim Discoveries

Denim is having a serious comeback: all shades and styles are making the rounds. But you don't want to look like everyone else, do you? Of course not. You're an independent woman with a creative flair in your wardrobe. That's why we searched and found five denim items on the market right now that will continue to hold through time, and make an original statement day after day. 

The jacket (top left) will be with you for the long haul. Instead of a typical denim jacket like everyone else has, this one has length and a blazer style, making it a leader in the jean jacket trend. (It's a lightweight chambray.)

The sweet dress will transition well from summer to fall. Wear it now with sandals and then in the fall with boots and a chunky sweater. 

I always love a chambray shirt, but the classic button ups bore me. This boxy, flowy variety from Anthropologie (upper right) is an upbeat twist on the workhorse shirt. 

Likeswise, this peasant top from Almond (sold online and at Legion in San Francisco) is a beauty in person. I tried it on recently and was wowed by its slimming effects and boho vibe. Definitely a must-have.

And finally, my favorite clutch right now comes in—what else?—denim. This Denim Moon Bag from Lotfi was a gift that I recently received from my sister-in-law for my birthday. She picked it up at Legion and since giving it to me, I haven't put it down.
