As spring gets closer and we all start ruminating over our warm weather wardrobe, it’s the perfect time to establish the basics. A classic denim workshirt is one of the most versatile and easy-to-wear pieces you can own. Whether paired with dark wash jeans or a skirt and some baubles, you can style this day-to-night, office-to-after-hours without any fuss. Check out our top denim workshirt picks for spring below.
Ahh summer. The season of wild flowers, picnics and wearing explosions of botanical floral prints all over the place. Topshop has released a couple of super cute options for the flower-and-denim loving style maven this season: a button down chambray collared short-sleeved top and a matching flared denim mini-skirt. Pair each with contrasting separates or wear them together to make a bold statement. A statement that, without question, enforces your love of floral print and blue jeans.

If you grew up in school uniforms and now shudder at the thought of polo shirts and khaki slacks, it might be time for you to reconsider the power and styling fun of a well-placed classic. A crisp prepster shirt or a pair of boat shoes can bring a super-wild outfit down to earth or add an extra dose of polish and Audrey Hepburn panache. Still wary? Topshop’s Denim Tie Front Shirt is a good middle ground. For $50, we love its laid-back preppiness and general versatility. In fact, we’ve come up with four ways to wear this piece–and you can surely think up more!

Of-the-moment model Abbey Lee Kershaw gets super-saucy for Moussy‘s Fall 2010 campaign. Moussy is a Japanese streetwear brand with a heavy emphasis on sex appeal and denim. The ads won’t run in glossies here, but the shots you’ll find at Fashion Gone Rogue create a similarly fulfilling experience between seductive ad and consumer.
Shot by Yasutomo Ebisu, this set makes head-to-toe denim basics look as magnificent as eveningwear. The extreme perm adds a playful touch, and darling Abbey even makes a spelling error in her black-marker love letter. A bit of naivety mixed with sex appeal creates something playful and notoriously Japanese—a perfect playing field for versatile denim looks.
See the full campaign here.

Isn’t this just adorable? Recently, I’ve been falling in love with some of the season’s cutesie child-like tops, which include Peter Pan collars, ribbons and little button details. Enter the Denim Bow Top — a more grown up version, — suitable for the city life or the great outdoors. It’s more of a denim-inspired top. Made of 100% cotton, it is not actual denim, but it sure looks like it, no?
This is such a great versatile blouse that can work at the office or at the beach (worn with pedal pushers), where you can stroll with your little Pug and sip on your frosty caffeinated drink. It’s a breezy top that can be layered with a cardigan in case it gets, well, breezy. I discovered it online at INTUITION, and it’s currently on sale for $53.99. Unfortunately, only the small size is left, so it’s going to disappear fast.
