Wardrobe Basics: Denim Aternative

When I first thought of this post, I wondered what I would write as an alternative for denim. In my book, nothing can replace denim, however, when you actually think about it, there may be times when putting on denim is not a choice. I'm thinking when the heat is sweltering and you want light, breezy fabrics that breath . Or if your office dress-code for dress-down Friday does not include jeans then what should you opt for? Or you want something different, out of the box, that will make you stand out.
After a little research, I found the answer staring me in the face. Alternatives for denim come in the form of khaki trousers, palazzo pants and printed trousers like floral or stripes or other geometric prints. Think athleisure which involves styling clothes and fabrics that were previously worn for sports only into outfits that can be worn for other occasions e.g. sweatpants styled with heels and a nice blouse.
Just like your jeans, your denim alternative can be styled with a plain white t-shirt, blazer and a white shirt. Be sure to play around with different accessories to create different looks. Below are some ideas on how you can style your denim alternative.
