You may enjoy Denim Delight this spring. As we immerse ourselves in warmer weather, we also, ironically, embrace the denim look more aggressively. From high-end fashion ads to the streets, this look is making a comeback. No wonder Jay Leno has consistently kept up this look for all these years. Although I’m not fond of how he wears denim, when you flip through some magazines you will notice the fun, hip look.

Whether you wear a denim top or bottom you can really keep it looking rad with the right attitude. Check out this sexy jumper. Not everyone can wear this well, but if you choose the right accessories you will look hip and stylish. Try wearing this with a funky pair of stilettos or try toning down your look with pumps for a cross cultured fashion look. Let your personality shine with this outfit and its counterparts.

Next up, check out these adorable denim ballerina flats. These flats have a tiny clear heel, which exudes unexpected flair and differentiates this ballerina flat from other boring contemporary ballerina flats. I also love the combination of the dark and light denim for a simple and perfect contrast. Moreover, these flats resemble the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I’m willing to bet you will feel perfectly comfortable and stylish wearing them while you’re running everyday errands.

As we begin transitioning away from ballerina flats, I would like to mention my recent wardrobe dilemma from this past week. I decided to head out to a causal spot but I couldn’t figure out how to down play my outfit. I knew I looked too over the top for the hipster restaurant I planned to attend.

Since my blazers are more formal, I knew I was going to have difficult time deciding what to wear until I realized I had an old school denim vest that would help me turn my more formal look into a down-to-earth day wear one. This next item does just that… Although it’s not exactly a vest, it’s great to throw over a more laid back look. Whether you decide to downplay a dress or pair your shorts with a glam tee, try keeping denim alive one piece at a time.
