We all know that gene regulation is an important aspect for the function of the gene in a cell. Well, I am willing to argue that the regulation is equally important in the facilitation your own personal jean expression. How do you want to feel when you don your denim? Since you’re reading this article, then I suspect your answer is “confident and current.” It does not take a genius to incorporate these few jean inspired looks. Fortunately, you all ARE geniuses, so I am confident that you will remain current.
Jean shorts are a sartorial sin! Pitch them or put them aside if you cannot bring yourself to letting them go. Instead, opt for a denim accessory with a solid color cotton or chino short.
As the heat approaches here in the North East, linen is a nice fabric for allowing the body to breathe so that you can avoid offending your bench mate with your own personal chemical reaction. If you think that linen might be a little too fancy Gatsbyesque for you, then think again. Linen can be worn casually and washed in a washing machine for easy maintenance. I like this one from J.Crew because it offers a unique spin on a traditional denim shirt.
As casual denim dress is perfect for creating an effortless look. On a basic science level, it is an oversized shirt that is nipped and tucked in a few places to compliment your feminine physique. Throw on an accessory of your choice and a pair of flats (your toes should be covered in a laboratory and most professional settings), and you’re ready to go. Note: If you have a healthy bust and button down shirts have a hard time staying buttoned, then wear a camisole underneath and unbutton the dress one more than you otherwise would.
Many women grab cardigans when they want to cover their arms and guard against the night chill. Cardigans are fine, but are relatively traditional and safe. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that…) As an alternative, try a colorful denim jacket in a color that makes you feel vibrant. You can wear it with dresses or skirts, heels or flats, hoop earrings or studs and jeans or capris. It’s that versatile. The collar frames and lifts your face while providing structure for your shoulders.
Who knew the way you don your denim could turn you into “the Don” or the “Bella Donna?!?!”
