Top 20 Denim Shirts To Buy Now As Worn By Rihanna And Alexa Chung

denim shirt, denim to buy now

Alexa Chung, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian do the denim shirt

A denim shirt is a building block of any good wardrobe. Kate Moss has a bunch; Rihanna has so many we've lost count. Whether you wear it to the beach or in the boardroom, a denim shirt is one of the most flexible pieces out there. Chloe Moretz even wore her Louis Vuitton denim shirtdress on the red carpet. 

Looking for a fresh way to wear a denim shirt? You can pair it with jeans or a denim jacket to do double, triple, or even quadruple denim like Rihanna, or wear it as a dress with bare legs in the summer like Alexa Chung. For extra cool points button your shirt all the way to the top a la Kate Bosworth. 

We've done the hard work for you and ransacked all of the shops to crown the top 20 denim shirts to invest in this season. We've hunted down embroidered western inspired numbers, a tri-denim twist by Victoria Beckham and a classic forever shirt from American Apparel.

Plus remember that the #DieselReboot capsule collection, which includes plenty of badged up denim, will have a special launch on the 8 November at the Covent Garden store at 43 Earlham Street between 4 and 6 pm. As if the denim debut wasn't enough of a draw, at the event you'll have the opportunity to meet the one and only Nicola Formichetti. Squeal!
