Faux Sure

My last article was about denim leggings. With jeggings, skinny jeans, and colored denim all being hot trends, denim is everywhere right now. Maybe that's why I've recently discovered a new twist on denim: Faux denim. Like jeggings, these are articles of clothing that look like real denim but have a different feel to them. While the concept of wearing fake denim may seem completely bizarre, I actually found some synthetic denim items that I thought were cute. Take a look at some of my faux denim finds below to see what I mean.

If you want to try out the faux denim trend, I would advise that you don't pair any fake denim with real denim; It could be too overwhelming. Try wearing some faux denim leggings with a tunic and a pair of slouch boots. To wear faux denim pants, grab a color block top, some cowboy boots, a bib necklace, and a cuff bracelet. Wear a fake denim blazer with a bandage pencil skirt, a white button-down blouse, and a pair of pumps. Pair a synthetic denim vest with a gingham print top, some corduroy pants, and sneakers. To rock a faux denim mini skirt, pair it with some ripped leggings, a rock & roll graphic t-shirt, some hoop earrings, and ballet flats. For a synthetic denim pencil skirt, wear it with an off-the-shoulder top, a pair of neon tights, and some high-heeled oxfords. Wear a fake denim dress with a pair of latex leggings, cutout shoes, and a cardigan. For lounging around at an indoor pool, throw a shirt dress on over your faux denim swimsuit and also add a pair of flip flops. If you have any of your own ideas about what would look good with faux denim, let me know.
