The fresh denim pieces you need for spring

If you live in your jeans, listen up: denim had a moment on the spring 2017 runways, making its way onto dresses, tops, even head-to-toe looks. The range of fresh silhouettes, plus details like patchwork and frayed edges, infused new life into everyone’s favorite fabric. The blue hues can be paired with more denim—just be sure to mix the washes. Here, a few of the freshest ways to add the fabric to your wardrobe.


DRESS Patchwork denim lends a cool, casual vibe to this J Brand Luna Rosemary patchwork denim shift dress, $248, at Clique Boutique in the Prairie Village Shops.


EARRINGS  Swingy, tassel-y, and made of recycled denim: Cham Cham Queen denim earrings, $25, at We Are Sincerely Yours in Beacon Hill.


TOP The simple shape of this Cham Cham Queen short-sleeve fringed-hem top, $65, at We Are Sincerely Yours, gets a playful, boho spin thanks to fringe trim (made from vintage jeans) and a raw edge at the neck and sleeves.


BAG Leather trim and tassels add polish to a mashup of different washes on this See By Chloe Vicki denim and leather bucket bag, $375, from Standard Style on the Country Club Plaza and Town Center Crossing.


OFF-THE-SHOULDER TOP As timeless and versatile as white cotton, this true blue Third Form Free Fall top in denim, $179, at Anaphora in Prairiefire, is also available in a dress.


BLAZER More tailored than the classic denim jacket, the Elliott Lauren denim blazer, $228, at Halls Kansas City in Crown Center, is soft, featherweight and office appropriate.
