Best Denim Shirts for Women

Chic look – denim shirt and white jeans via Stockholm Street Style

The denim shirt started as the perfect shirt for working people. The blue hue, durable fabric, and roll-able sleeves made it the perfect companion for a hard days work. (Just ask Rosie the Riveter.)

Yet with all things denim, as years passed, the look became more important than durability. Today, the denim shirt has been updated, styled, and refined as a chic boho, modern, and business casual look.

This article shows you 12 of our favorite denim shirts of 2019. I’ve also included chambray (a similar fabric to denim) as their as some great options that we were worth including.

Everlane The Relaxed Jean Shirt $60.00

    How To Style Your Denim Shirt

    You can literally wear denim shirts with anything and they look great! I have numerous denim shirts (maybe 10) and I wear them weekly with my different outfits. They go with shorts, mini skirts, maxi skirts, over dresses, with different wash jeans and more.

    They are very versatile and come in so many variations! I have two ombre/dip dye shirts, an oversized light blue one, a light blue fitted one, a dark blue fitted one, a tie-dye sleeveless version, one with embellished elbows, one with studs and more! I find you can even wear them underneath denim jackets as well, if you want to go for a triple denim look!

    Celebs In Denim Shirts

    I have included 6 of my favorite celeb denim shirt looks, these include Ashley Greene, David Beckham, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Zac Efron and Charlize Theron.

    We have had countless sightings on DenimBlog of celebs in a denim shirt though, but I really liked these looks! It just proves how easy they are to wear and how unisex they are too! I even own a men’s denim shirt as I loved the colour of it, so anyone can literally wear them!
