Lipstick & Jeans: Our Favorite Shades To Wear With Blue


If art & design school taught is one useful thing, it’s that hues of orange and red look great with blue. And while you can translate that using jeans and a top, the ladies of DT are huge fans of throwing the pop color on our lips! We’ve whipped up combinations of our favorite lipsticks and our favorite jeans to show you how makeup and denim can work together in perfect harmony. Show us your own denim x lipstick combinations on our facebook wall!

Cheap Monday Super Light Blue “Second Skin” Skinny Jeans


We’re pretty big on the light wash jeans lately, and our favorite new arrival at Nasty Gal is right on point with our cravings. These high waisted Cheap Monday “Super Light Blue” Second Skin skinny jeans are the perfect answer to ’90s crop-top T’s and killer heels. The light wash leaves room for playful lipstick shades and contrast-drawing belts like the skinny leather belt shown below. A simple pendant and gold bracelet, and you’re as fresh as the spring breeze itself! But wait, there’s more… these jeans are only $65!

Denim Styling Tip: Florals & Pink Lipstick


Here’s a tip on how to make your spring/summer denim separates a tad more feminine, whatever the wash: a floral blouse, leather braided belt (in mahogany or maroon), and a pretty painted mouth will add a lady-like touch that won’t interfere with your baby-blue’s. here are a few picks we love to achieve this look.
