Celebrate National Denim Day 2020
April 29th is National Denim Day. Of the many silly national days that we celebrate, from National Buffet Day to National Thesaurus Day, this is one of the more significant. Not only should we participate in National Denim Day to sport a put together and chic look, but more importantly because this is a day dedicated to bringing awareness to sexual assault and violence. Wearing denim this Wednesday is a symbol of your commitment to bringing an end to this physical and emotional violation, and a way to protest against relaxed attitudes towards sexual assault. Show your support and take a stand against sexual assault by pulling out your favorite denim items and wearing them proudly. The French are known for their strong women and sophisticated flair, especially when it comes to styling denim, so take a page out of their book and read on to see our top five ways of how to style denim the French way.
Your Style Guide
Flirt fearlessly by throwing on a pair of white denim jeans and pairing it with your prettiest blouse. This combination creates the perfect fit for imagining yourself leisurely stopping for an outside Parisian picnic, a glass of wine not far away. White denim makes a confident statement on its own but slipping into a dainty top will create a summer-time cool and delicate look.
One of the most quintessential French outfits is the impossibly chic faded blue denim with a crisp white button-down look. Simple, yet incredibly flattering and captivating, try for this look in the cooler months, while opting for a simple tee and some distressed denim shorts for an equally classic look for the summer.
A blazer can really tie a look together, and the French have really perfected this style. A belted denim pant with a simple shirt and an oversized blazer creates an elevated look that can be worn to coffee with friends or even to the office for a business casual day.
The French aren’t much for colors within their clothes, leaning more towards the side of simplicity, but they are no stranger to bold accessories! Try on a pair of straight leg jeans and dip into a bold red heel. Grab your funkiest purse too while you’re at it. A minimalistic denim look allows for a lot of creative expression when it comes to accessorizing!
Take back the night by getting into an outfit that has a little bit of a rougher look. Dare to impress the crowds by pairing your denim with a leather jacket to add a little bit of texture and pull of that edgier French look. To really take it all the way, pull on a pair of black skinnies in addition to the dark leather jacket.
Whichever style is more suitable to you, do not forget to wear denim on Wednesday, April 29th to help bring awareness to the dangers and misconceptions of sexual assault. If you try out any of these looks, make sure to tag us @ouiplease and use the hashtag #denimday #ouipleasedenimday
