Mix textures added to your denim creates a semi-retro fun ’90s look. You can match a floral denim print with an acid-wash pair of jeans, for example. This amps up the excitement factor of your outfit while still keeping it within the realms of chic. Just be sure the rest of your separates are solid colors to avoid looking like a confused ’90s overload. Check out some of these cool mix-textured denim looks below!
