In our first edition of the “Dope on Denim”, we walked you through the history of Denim and some of the style icons who rock the ‘blue fabric’ in their own ways. In this continuing series, we will focus on denim based products and style. Today’s focus is on the Denim Shirt – we’ll show you its many avatars of style as well as some fun ways to accessorize it.

MAke-up with your denim shirts

Yup, there’s always that red lip colour that can pop your look for the day in the denim shirt. Even if you’re a goth guy, but then, you would go with a black lip colour. Yeah?

Looking for denim shirts? Aside from your local mall or online, if you’re on a budget, you’re sure to find tons of them at your local street shops. We saw some fun ones on Sarojini Nagar in Delhi and Hill Road in Mumbai. The best part of street shopping is the pricing. It’s cheap and hence, can serve as great option to stock up on some DIY raw material!

Denim shirts available at Sarojini Nagar, an open street market in Delhi.
