15 Reasons a Denim Shirt Is Essential Right Now

If we were to choose our favorite wardrobe staple, it would be a close battle between vintage denim jeans, slide sandals, and a denim shirt (among many others, really). However, when the weather gets colder, our slide sandals prove useless, and it's hard to layer comfortably a pair of jeans. Alas, our denim shirts always reign supreme. That being said, we are always looking for jean-shirt outfits for winter that inspire us to keep styling our favorite piece in new and exciting ways.

Whether it's worn under a leopard coat or layered over a trusty turtleneck, the styling possibilities of a denim shirt are endless, and the outfits ahead prove it.
