Top denim shirts for women
Here at Stella Carakasi, we offer several different styles of denim shirts to accommodate every woman’s wardrobe, lifestyle, and body shape. All of our denim tops are made from sustainable Tencel® denim (which you can read all about on our blog, here!) Tencel® doesn’t require as much water or energy to produce which makes it more eco-friendly than other denim options out there. Tencel® is made from sustainably grown trees which also means that it’s biodegradable and won’t take thousands of years to decompose like many synthetic fabrics. Tencel® has become such a huge component in many of our designs including all of our denim shirts. This means that you can feel good about adding Stella Carakasi denim shirts to your collection—not only for the style and quality, but also for the commitment to be friendly to our planet!
Starting with a newer style to our line, the Heatwave Tunic is a fashionable twist on a classic denim top. The Tencel® denim makes this shirt super soft and comfortable without sacrificing style. It features a scoop neck, ¾ length sleeves, front pockets, contrast stitching, and side slits and soon will be available up to size 2XL (22-24)! The Heatwave Tunic also has a decorative button and loop detail on the front that makes it the perfect combination of classic and modern. This is one of those tops that you can wear from lunch with the girls to running errands to happy hour with your partner!
Washed Indigo Tunic
If you’re looking for a more casual, easy-going denim top, our Washed Indigo Tunic is the perfect option for you. The Washed Indigo Tunic is our classic denim shirt but don’t let that fool you, this top is far from basic! It has a slightly longer back hem which makes it perfect to wear with slim pants or leggings. The sleeves feature a button tab so you’re able to convert them from long to half sleeves. This top also boasts breast pockets as well as additional front-on-seam pockets. The Washed Indigo Tunic is the perfect layering piece to take you from summer right into the colder months. In addition, this shirt is also available in two other great overdyed colors—Lagoon and Port if you’re interested in switching it up!
Prime Time Tunic
Our Prime Time Tunic has an A-line silhouette to fit and flatter most body types. You can wear it open and layer it with other tops underneath or buttoned up by itself. The Prime Time Tunic features unique side seam pockets and a unique buttoned sleeve opening. Like the Washed Indigo Tunic, the Prime Time Tunic also boasts a high-low hem which makes it great to wear with leggings or fitted bottoms. It also has a back center pleat for both style and added comfort.
Can’t Resist Tunic
Looking to take your denim shirt collection to the next level? Our Can’t Resist Tunic is the perfect modern take on a traditional denim shirt. It’s designed with gorgeous pin-tucks in the front and back for an added element of style. It has long sleeves with buttoned cuffs which make it great for fall weather. Like many of our tops, the Can’t Resist Tunic also has front pockets for convenience and an A-line shape that looks good on every woman. The Can’t Resist Tunic is super comfortable and soon will be available up to size 2XL (22-24).
All Attitude Shirt
Lastly is our All Attitude Shirt, another great addition to our collection. We like to call this our ‘artist shirt’ because of its boxy shape, front on-seam pockets, and classic collar. This top features a wraparound back panel that forms the front-facing deep side slits which allow for movement and comfort throughout the day. It features a bracelet-length sleeve with wider sleeve openings that can easily be rolled up. This shirt was also designed with a high-low hem and a drop shoulder design for a more casual and super comfortable look.
How to style a denim shirt
Now that you’ve found your must-have denim shirt, it’s time to style it! Denim shirts can be made super casual for errand running or even more dressed up for lunches and shopping with your girlfriends!
Dress it down
Looking for an elevated shopping day look? Try pairing your favorite Stella Carakasi denim top with our Second Nature Capris in Soft White, a classic pair of white sneakers, and an oversized pair of sunglasses! The Nike SB Chron 2 Canvas sneakers in white are a great pair of basic sneakers that look cute with almost any outfit and are comfortable. We’ve also been loving the Ray-Ban State Street sunglasses in tortoiseshell because they keep you looking chic and protected from the sun!
Dress it up
If you want to take your look up a notch for a lunch date, all of our denim shirts look great worn with our Slimming Ankle Pants. These bottoms are super comfortable but are designed with slimming style lines to flatter everyone. Try accessorizing with a cute, yet functional bag like the Tory Burch Miller Bucket Bag. This bag will hold all of your necessities without looking clunky or too simple!
