For women, one popular way to wear a denim shirt is to pair it with colored jeans and tuck in the shirt; for men, it can be paired with chinos and a cardigan. For both men and women, the shirt can be worn with other denim items, as long as the other denim is a different color or a darker shade of blue. Both genders can also layer it; women can wear the shirt over a dress, and men can wear it under a plaid shirt.
The most popular type of denim shirt is the chambray shirt, which comes in dark or light washes and is essentially a soft denim. It is popular to dress this shirt either up or down. Women can wear it tucked into a black pencil skirt or patterned shorts, while men can wear it over sweats or under a vest and camel coat.
Denim shirts have become a wardrobe staple among men and women, particularly for the spring and summer. However, they are available in darker washes for wear during the wintertime. Denim shirts can be purchased at stores like J.Crew, American Eagle Outfitters and H&M.
Denim shirts have become particularly popular since fashion bloggers started wearing them with white denim or jean shorts. They have also been popularized by celebrities including Vanessa Hudgens, David Beckham and Kate Bosworth.
