Fall in Love with Denim!
Fall is just around the corner, and at Maripoza Boutique, we love using denim as the perfect textile to transition from summer to fall. Denim is the perfect fabric that you can wear all year long. And these days, you can make denim as casual or as fancy as your fashionista heart desires. From acid wash to chambray, from sepia tones to charcoal, denim can be worn many different ways with a variety of styles to choose from.
Denim skirts have made a comeback in full force! We first saw the denim skirt trend take off with Jill Stuart's collection in 2002. The mid length pencil style then took off and developed into the 2004 favorite, the mini skirt. And, as we all know, trends love to make a full fashion circle, bringing us to 2016 where the denim skirt is trendy again!
We love the slightly frayed and exposed button-down style with our favorite tank or tucked-in tee. This look can easily be transitioned to fall with a long cardigan or cable knit sweater and a pair of calf boots or Yosi Samra flats. This is a must-have for your fall wardrobe!
The Sleeveless Denim Dress
Denim dresses have always been Audrey Hepburn cool, but now they go beyond into every social circle. Make it your own by choosing a sleeveless denim dress, perfect to pair with a #bohochic hat and a sparkly necklace or with a long kimono layered over it.
You can also pair your sleeveless denim with some adorable sandals while the weather is still toasty, and as the weather cools down, transition into ankle boots or even some cute suede espadrilles. Layer with a denim jacket, long boyfriend cardigan or even a flannel for those crisp fall evenings.
You can also choose between denim shades! We love the sepia tone for a more desert vibe, and we also have lighter denim for the classic girl.
Embroidery has always been a favorite of every Maripoza girl, but now we are seeing the trends go a step further into embroidered denim. This is an incredibly elegant look! This is a perfect trend for the gal who loves to lunch, and it can also be dressed up at the office with a cute navy or black blazer.
Pair your look with some sparkly earrings or even simple pearls. The embroidery detail on this dress is so fabulous that you can skip the long necklace and just add some gorgeous wrap bracelets and chic hoop earrings.
The ¾-Sleeved Denim Dress
Oh, how every gal needs a ¾-sleeved denim dress in her closet! It is an essential to your wardrobe and can be worn in a variety of ways. With weather still well into the 80s, we pair this look right now with pom pom sandals and a cute tribal necklace for that Coachella yet office look. But as the weather starts to change and temperatures get cooler, this is a great transition piece every girl must own!
We love pairing it with colored tights, boot socks and riding boots, or even little brown combat boots, ankle boots, lace-up wedges; the list can go on and on! Even when belted, this dress will be amazing and adds that chic spice for the 9 to 5 working girl.
Your Favorite Pair of Jeans
Cue the Lana del Rey because we are LOVING Henry and Belle jeans, which are perfect for all body types. Henry and Belle are the kind of jeans that, when you buy them, you wear them for life. They don't fade, they fit to your body, they don't have a gap in the back when you bend down to pick something up (keeping us gals from having a wardrobe malfunction) and they come in a variety of colors and styles!
Try pairing a light blue style with your favorite chambray top because denim on denim is completely acceptable. In fact, these days, you can’t go wrong with too much denim! The more, the better! It’s all about how you style it. Style it from dark to light and choose which piece you want to highlight the most.
Minimal jewelry and a fabulous pair of shoes is the way to go when trying the denim-on-denim trend. Most importantly, have fun with it! Jeans are every girl's best friend. Move over diamonds, a favorite pair of jeans can last a lifetime. We all saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!
When transitioning into fall, we like to mix up our denim style. This is a great way to incorporate denim into a more day-to-night look or a more dressed up office look. It's so professional and looks amazing for the workday, but also for a Happy Hour out with your girlfriends. Try pairing a dark, loose t-shirt with a pair of your favorite lighter denim jeans! This can also be worn in the fall with long sleeves, ankle boots, socks and cute long necklaces.
Statement Necklaces and Chambray
Oh, yes, yes, yes! We love everything sparkly, of course. That is the epitome of a Maripoza girl, but to add a little pop of sparkle with a denim shirt or dress?! YES! It is the ultimate look that you'll need this fall. Pair your sparkly statement with a collar shirt (collar buttoned-up) and the necklace over the denim, or unbutton it and let your sparkle shine through your shirt. You can also pair it with a t-shirt and your favorite denim for the ultimate girly look!
