7 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt

Happy Tuesday ladies! I recently purchased a denim shirt from Target, and I’ve been wearing it a lot. So, I thought it would be appropriate to share 7 Ways To Wear a Denim Shirt.

If I had to list a closet staple that we all should own, I would list a denim shirt as one of the top pieces of clothing. It’s such a fabulous basic piece, and unlike most items in our closet, it can work for all four seasons.

This denim shirt from Target is a good one! I have already washed it, and it doesn’t shrink, and while it is 100% cotton, it doesn’t easily wrinkle.

Let’s get started with 7 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt.

1. Layer A Cardigan Over Your Denim Shirt

Beauty For the Heart~~

Keep me safe, O God,
for I have come to you for refuge.

I said to the Lord, “You are my Master!
Every good thing I have comes from you.”

The godly people in the land
are my true heroes!
I take pleasure in them!

Troubles multiply for those who chase after other gods.
I will not take part in their sacrifices of blood
or even speak the names of their gods.

Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
You guard all that is mine.

Psalm 16:1-5

Have a blessed day!

  3. Hi Cindi,
    I got the burgundy leopard print scarf from Target and I know I saw you post something about how you tied that when you styled it with the denim shirt. But do you think I can find that now that my scarf has arrived!!!! Would you mind directing me to those instructions please? Love, love, love your blog!

  4. I have a lighter colored denim shirt, but I’m definitely going to purchase this one. I liked all the ways you styled it, and especially like the way the denim color plays off the burgundy. I think the shirt is a bit too short to wear with leggings. I usually don’t wear leggings with any top that does not come to mid-thigh. I agree with the other comments here—LOVE when you do posts showing multiple ways to style an item!

  5. My favorite post!! I bought the shirt, similar pants and the scarf. Now how do u tie it??? Lol. Love all of these outfits. Thanks so much for showing so many different looks with just one shirt!!

  6. Cyndi, my neighbor Rhonda and I purchased the shirt from Target yesterday. What a fabulous find! The fabric is soft and the color is fabulous. Above all, what a great value!

  7. The shirt is a classic piece. I love when you style clothes from Old Navy and Target. Please do more of styling clothes different ways! I will be ordering this shirt! Thanks

  8. Love this post! I’m going to have to order the denim shirt. And this scripture is perfect for a friend. I’m going to send it to her. Thank you 💗

  9. Great Post. What great ideas. I have a question. You said you’ve already washed it and it didn’t shrink. Did you dry it in the dryer or lay it out to dry? Just wondering what size to order. I’m usually your size. Thanks.

  10. Love this post! I’ve always liked a great denim shirt. Have a couple but really like the wash and length of this one, so I just ordered!!

  11. I love all the ways you styled the denim shirt, thank you for the great ideas! I also love the beauty for the heart messages. I’ve been listening to The more I seek you by Kari Jobe, it is a love song to the Lord, absolutely beautiful!!

  12. I rarely submit comments, but have to say, I love today’s post, …worth the wait! Showing numerous ways to wear an item is a real plus with me. I wear denim shirts throughout the year and you gave me a few more ideas to add to my repertoire, like the suede skirt, camo leggings and cord pants. I happen to have all of those items, hadn’t thought to pair with a denim shirt. Thank you!

  13. Great job on this post 😃 I have always worn a demin shirt in the fall but haven’t purchased one in a few year so thanks for reminding me. I love it with those camo leggings and black pants or black leggings for a more casual look. Thanks for sharing. One quick question; what type of socks or footies do you wear with those side slit booties to keep them from showing?

  14. I would love to see you do “One Piece/# Ways”. I like to see what you can do with just one piece of basic clothing…it helps when I pack as I do travel often. Thx

  15. I am right there with you! I love a good denim shirt! So much that I have 7 or 8 in different styles! I wear all of them. Love how you styled this. Denim with green or wine is my favorite. You look good in everything!💕

  16. Love these!! Looks great with everything! I have a denim/chambray shirt from Target from a year or 2 ago, but I like this one better, may be time to update it! 🙂 Thanks!

  17. This is a great post. I love my chambray shirt. Among other things, it’s definitely my go-to when I have a skirt I don’t know what to pair with. Have a great day!

  18. Thank you for all your ideas on styling the denim shirt! I will be styling the leggings with the Hunter boots a good bit due to all the rain we’ve been getting. When it’s colder a vest or the cardigan idea would work perfectly! Thanks for BFTH as well!! As always I needed that today.

  19. Love…LOVE…look #6 with the corduroy pants. Can you provide a tutorial on how the scarf was tied? This is look would be great for the office or church and date night too!

  20. Great post, Cyndi! I have a denim shirt but don’t wear it very often. I’m going to start wearing it with leggings and try with a skirt. I love the casual vibe of a skirt and denim shirt.
    Showing us how to wear one piece multiple way, breaks down our cost per wear. I appreciate the amount of time and effort that went into this post but it shows us our versatile one piece can be. Keep them coming, please!

  21. I love all of the looks! Especially the one with the scarf and burgundy pants! I’ve already ordered these pieces and am totally going to copy this look for work! Thank you!!

  22. Hey Cyndi< Beautiful as always!! I have 2 denim shirts but I like this one better, I will probably purchase this one :). Im sure you have done a tutorial of how you style your hair in these pics but I have missed it somehow . Can you tell me how you do this? Is so pretty!!!

  23. This is awesome, Cyndi. Being on a budget, this is such a great post and at least one of these would surely suit most all your readers. I agree with the others, it would be great to see one of these with a basic staple piece weekly! 🙂

  24. Oh I love this kind of post. I can copy a few of these for sure… I’d add my black puffer best to the one you posted with the black leggings when it gets colder… I neee to he wearing my denim shirt I bought last year a lot more. Especially now that it’s getting cooler. We had our first morning of frost today… crazy seeing as last week I was in our pool .. ha
    Thanks again for the great post 😀 Cyndi!!

  25. I have a hard time finding leggings that are either too thick or too thin. Do these cover all of you ?=not too thin or too thick

  26. Love them all but the Camo pants. I esp. would of never thought they would be so stylish with the Cordoroy pants but the scarf really added to it. , I love that outfit the Best! . Thank you so much for the ideas I check them daily and the way you share your Faith!

  27. Love this post! Great job! Wished you’d share this sort of theme once a week. I’m sure it took some time but the creative variety you offered in one single post is fabulous! Hats off to you, Cyndi! Thank you so much!

  28. Love the many ways to wear the denim shirt!! A great piece to fall-erize so many things, even white jeans!! I like seeing this as I try to make almost every piece I buy do double or even triple duty!! You look great in all of them!!

  29. OH I love every outfit here and so glad you showed all the different ways to style this adorable denim shirt. This shirt is really timeless! I want everything you styled today! always looks so great on you too!

  30. So excited to see this post because I bought this very shirt this past Sunday! Can’t wait to style the shirt with a pair of Corduroy bottoms. Thanks for the great ideas!

  31. Haahaa! I love that you showed us all those outfits, it goes to show a denim shirt is a really versatile wardrobe piece! i am going to steal your look in the last one with the burgundy pants, as that is a perfect look for work that I can replicate. Thanks Cyndi!

  32. I love a soft, well tailored denim shirt to wear in the fall and winter. I will be going to Target today to pick up the dark navy one you styled. I love it. Thanks for styling it is so many great looks. I love the Universal Threads brand Target has. Everything I’ve bought under this brand has been great.

  33. Cyndi, I love this post! I have been looking for a cute dark-wash denim shirt just like this one for a long time. It goes with just about everything. I scooped one up just now!

  34. So many great looks!
    BFTH is the exact scripture I have committed to read as part of a 30 day challenge posted by Shelly Giglio on Instagram so that was a pretty cool coincidence!

  35. I love all of these outfits Cindy! You look amazing in all of them. Thanks for sharing all of the ideas, this post is great! I know I will come back to it for inspiration a lot.

  36. Cyndi, thank you for showing how a simple denim shirt can be so versatile. I really needed this post with the new season and feeling like I have nothing to wear in my closet.
    You wear everything well.
    Have a great day!
