Do or Don't

I think we can all agree, there's nothing that beats a great pair of jeans! But what about a great jean shirt? I remember I used to wear one years & years ago but I'm not sure why because a) it was a little too stiff for my comfort and b) I always felt goofy in it. How could I not, I was dressed head to toe in jean! But what do you think, do or don't when it comes to jean shirts? Do you own one? Do you wear it??

I hate that denim on denim is back I remember this form the 90's and I was so glad to see it leave, NOW ITS BACK ahhhh help us all!

Thank you for stopping by and yes I am realy chuffed
I dont own a denim dress, but I do have several denim skirt and jackets, I dont tent to wear them together, just dont seem right.

Lorena said...

I have a denim shirt.
Just like you I feel totally STIFF in it.
For some weird reason every time I wear it I say to myself that I will give it away and then I think "oh I will give it another try..."
So yes, I still have it... will let it see the light one of these days, but NOT jeans on jeans... nono

Miss K said...

I love a denim top, but I haven't bought one yet becaue a) I have yet to find a cheap one I like b)i want to buy a cheap one bc I don't think I'll wear it enough to spend $40+ on it

Rhiannon Nicole said...

mmm Mara over at M loves M did a post on this and look absolutely stunning! I guess there's a fine line between cute and tacky! Depends on the person too I guess! hehe

Ivy Lane said...

not a fan..but love my old Levi's!

Cara said...

the last time I wore a jean skirt was 6 ears ago when uggs just came out and it was "cool" to wear them with jean skirts :/

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I remember wearing them back in the day. I don't think I could bring myself to do it again :)

annechovie said...

I used to have a favorite denim shirt back in the 90's that I thought was so cool. Not much for them now. Thanks for your visit and comment!

C.A.M said...

I kind of like the 2nd shot.... but really it has way too many bad memories for me ever want to go there again. :) I am going with don't! xox

clau said...

I have a jeans shirt in my wardrobe and honestly I love it! It's so confortable and trendy,I can mix it with a very different outfits! I' m a huge fan of denim and these pcitures are perfect!
Xoxo

Debby said...

I probably wouldn't buy one because of the comfort factor.... it would have to be really, really lightweight and soft and really faded pale blue. xo

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Haven't worn a jean shirt in many years, but one of my favorite photos of me is in my jean shirt!

georgia~gigi said...

Hey Jen! Oh my, I remember wearing jeanshirts, ugh! The 90's fashion, what were we thinking?!

Daisy said...

bringing it back. My mom used to rock the jean shirt and I think I had one too. Maybe they should be rocked with khakis to avoid an all over intense jean look?!

Moxie Maley said...

I've definitely worn my fair share of denim shirts in the past but I must say, they are gone for me now! I love, love, love jeans though!!

Lady Grey said...

I've never been a fan of jean-on-jean. But I think I could do a denim shirt with something else : )

KristiMcMurry said...

My favorite shirt is a $12 denim shirt from Walmart...who knew! It's comfortable, fits great, and I love it :) I don't wear it will denim on the bottom though. I wear it with black casual pants or shorts.

McKenzie said...

I've seen it pulled off quite fabulously, but I'm not sure if head-to-toe denim is my thing ;)

Urban Style Vibes said...

Wow, I just came across your blog! It's awesome. I will add you to my linklist and get back soon:-)))

I absolutely own one and I wear it over a couple of gap camis and a pair of leggings! It's super casual and better than a jacket. For shoes I wear clogs or flip-flops. Can't go wrong.

Have to say I'd also wear it tied at the waist with a pair of white wide leg denim and an espadrille wedge.

Josie said...

I don't have one but I think they can look really gorgeous and chic in a J.Crew kind of way. So pretty.

Not sure I'd put together an outfit like this, feels too much denim, but separately I'd wear them for sure! xoxox

jemina said...

Yes, I do, I love jeans top ;))

CHANTELLE said...

i do adore denim, although for me, head to toe is a bit too much! hanneli looks amazing as usual though :)

Nikki said...

I think if it's done the right way, it's ok. But I think it's very difficult to do it the right way!!

Krystal said...

i haven't owned one in so long! I remember in HS we would call girls who wore jean shirts with jean pants "jean jean ho's"....I know, so original. anyway...now they are all in style and I really like it but my inner High Schooler fears being a JJH! i'll do it if you do!

Miz.November said...

I'm gonna pass on the denim shirt thing. However, I do think that to pull this look off, you can't wear the jean shirt with jeans. It's just wrong. It's like leisure suit wrong.

Taylor said...

other girls can pull it off, but not me... its cute but not for me... def comfy tho

The Mays Family said...

I cannot pull the look off but I do know some people that can, but it is just not for me.

Eme said...

I had one too...but I don't know what I was thinking :)

alison (semi-fab lane) said...

i finally got rid of mine last year and i'm glad i did. it was soft but uncomfortable at the same time? i always tried to make it work for some reason.

Anna Liesemeyer said...

I have seen some great denim shirts recently and I am loving them! I think it looks fabulous with a pair of white denim jeans:)

jb said...

i would wear a denim shirt...but not w. jeans...i just can't do it.

Kera said...

Hello! Thanks for your comment! I just bought my first soft light blue denim shirt from j crew and i love it! your blog is fabulous. xx

Melissa said...

I have two, I usually wear them all the time. I posted a couple times on my blog. I think it's a great look, but I think some people think it's a bit too "texas tuxedo" :)

house 09 said...

the funny thing is that I love it and think it's so sexy but can never pull it off. I use to have these jean jackets back in the days and gave them all away ;)

Melissa said...

I've been thinking about getting a denim shirt since last fall. Haven't gone for it yet, but maybe sometime soon!

PursuitOfLLT said...

Not a huge fan of it...I mean come on, Canadian Tuxedo anyone?

I just think you have to limit the jean to jean ratio.

Although I LOVE jean shirt dresses. so cute with a belt and flats. or tights and boots in the fall :)

Mat said...

i have around 4(including chambary) and mine are all comfy. bit common hear in the UK these days though, crappy light denim wash ones. yuk

Jen said...

Why is it that I can't ever pull off these current trends?? They always seem to look better on someone else (ie a beautiful model) ;-)
