While there are certainly ways to pull this look off in many styles, from solids to patch work and accessories to boot, an easy place to start is choosing the color of your denims. Compliment your shades, for example, a dark denim cropped vest with dark low rise denim jeans, is a great casual go-to. A word of caution: be careful when pairing two denims of the same shade without mixing in other clothing or you could end up looking like you are sporting a denim suit, which is a definite fashion no-no. You can also try mixing dark and light denim, a popular look on most S/S 2014 runways, and try to add in other solids, such as a crisp white shirt or a bright pop of color in accessorizing. Silver accessories also work for giving a clean look when wearing denim head to toe.

A big spring trend this year is the chambray denim shirt. Once a major staple of the 90’s, this piece is making a comeback in a big way. Pair a lighter hue chambray top with dark denim jeans and a thick brown belt for a look that’s a little casual and a little country. Or for a look that’s more sophisticated, you could pair your chambray button down with a pair of black trousers and a denim beret.

Juicy Couture, Frame Denim and H&M have great mix and match denim options for S/S 2014. Keep your eye on Runway for ideas on how to accessorize every trend this season.
