It almost seems as if the NYLON office has been non-stop daydreaming about denim for the past few months. After all, how could you not when testing all the best jeans, cutoffs, and indigo textiles for our annual Denim Issue (hitting newsstands tomorrow)?
And while we’ve loved exploring the oddest denim fusions like denim harem pants, there’s something to be said for an outfit that incorporates denim as an everyday basic. We’re not talking about your go-to Jane Birkin striped tank and flare jeans combo. We’re referencing something more along the lines of the custom-made Bongo top Vanessa Hudgens wore to the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards. The itty-bitty crop, paired with high-waisted flare trousers by Badgley Mischka, added a super cool, fresh sultry element to the outfit, grounding the look with a Cali-girl next door vibe. It’s a look we can totally get behind and think you should, too.
