Denim workshirts are the all-purpose instant dash of cool in your closet, and there’s no better time to wear them than fall. But if you’re looking to put a twist on an already awesome classic, try this quick DIY cut-out project.
Trace out style lines (whether you want to cut out a huge chunk as shown, or smaller slices) in chalk or by thread-basting, on your denim workshirt. Then, get a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors (we love Gingher), and slowly cut along your lines, removing the denim from your workspace.
…That’s it! How did yours turn out? Let us know on facebook!

A few things every man needs in the spring: fresh kicks, a statement watch, and a few breezy chambray shirts. Haus Of Howe is offering up some thin, luxe options—one with a drawstring hooded detail in a super light wash. Imagine either of these paired with some colored chinos or cargo shorts for an easy spring look. No-fuss everyday styling always wins.
Take a closer look below.

If you’re spring cleaning your wardrobe (and looking to fill it with versatile must-haves), we’ve got the guide for you! We’ve come up with five denim staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe: a fitted pair of jeans, button-up shirt, polished shorts, trouser jeans, and a denim jacket. Pick-and-choose the wash or color that best fits your style, then grab these basics–they’ll last past your next closet purge.
The Fitted Jean
Whether you like your jeans super-skinny or prefer a slightly more straight-legged look, a fitted pair of jeans can be as sexy as you want it to be. Worn cuffed with heels for a dressier look, or paired with flats or sandals for a weekend outfit, the options are endless.
The Denim Button-Up Shirt
For a classic way to work denim-on-denim, wear with a denim button-up with jeans, or tuck into a pencil skirt to bridge the gap between casual and dressy at work. For summer, sling on a denim shirt, open and rumpled, over a sundress. It is a perfectly disheveled look, great for picnics and sunny days.

The Cuffed Denim Short
We love denim cut-offs as much as the next girl, but cuffed denim shorts are way more versatile. They look polished enough for slightly dressier occasions (granted, when paired with dressier tops and accessories), but you can also wear cuffed denims shorts to the beach and not feel overdressed.
The Trouser Jean
Sometimes, you have to give your legs room to breathe. Trouser jeans can be worn at work, but they also look great with platform heels outside of the office, or whenever you feel like your fitted jeans are just a little too tight for whoever you’re meeting up with.

The Classic Denim Jacket
There’s something to be said about the power of a classic denim jacket. It’s ready to be worn and torn (no, actually), and is quintessential Americana. Wear it to dress down outfits, wear it to add casual cool. Hey, denim jackets are the very definition of nonchalance.
