Perfect Pairing: Denim Shirt + Tan Suede Skirt


April 10, 2015 @ 11:03 pm

The two trends that dominated the spring 2015 runways? Denim and suede. Individually, they’re classics that are strong enough to stand alone. But together, they make for the ultimate pairing. Not only do they complement one another, but they also reflect this season’s ’70s spirit. To that end, we found the perfect denim shirt and paired it with five suede skirts.

To pull the combo off, look for chambray shirts in darker finishes (versus light washes) with sleek seams and interesting pocket details. The total effect reads more polished than casual. As for the skirt, all hemline lengths work, from mini to knee-grazing, but make sure to stick with a smooth russet brown color for optimum wearability.

Naomi Watts Nails Weekend Style in a Denim Shirtdress

Every Monday, like clockwork, we usher in the work week with a slew of updates detailing what our favorite celebs did over the weekend. And, especially in the summertime, few are more exciting to read than those concerning Naomi Watts. When she’s not busy filming, the Australian actress spends nearly every weekend gallivanting around the great outdoors—biking, scootering and generally living life with a capital L—with her husband Liev Schreiber and their two sons, Sasha and Samuel, in tow.

On a recent warm weather jaunt to the Brentwood Farmers’ Market, Watts was spotted rocking the perfect off-duty ensemble: a straw fedora, floral Birkenstocks and a denim shirtdress by Michael Stars. Made of a soft Tencel material that’s washed down and bleached through, the playful frock features reversed fabric on the front pockets, a drawstring to cinch the waist and button-down front. “We wanted to take that perfect, easy denim dress and give it an elevated and modern edge,” Michael Stars co-founder Suzanne Lerner told InStyle.

We can’t help but love the laid-back vibe of Watts’ look. After all, we demonstrated its wearability ourselves just a couple of months ago. If you want to nab the look, you’d better act fast: the Michael Stars Denim Tencel Shirt Dress is currently on sale (score!) for $ 89 at michaelstars.com.
