|NastyGal Heart Print Denim Shirt $15|
Level 1: Bottoms
|Lulu & Rose Pleather Pants (Liverpool Opshop ,$1), Cheap Monday Acid Wash Skinny Jeans (eBay), Motel Rocks Grey Star Printed Jeans ($30)|
To offset the sweetness of the heart print, we have the opposite end of the spectrum - pleather to toughen it. The star printed jeans in order to play up the whimsical factor of the shirt whilst the acid wash provides a contrast against the medium wash. Here, all of the pants are of a more skinnier fit so as to allow a streamlined effect, balancing out the looseness of the shirt when worn untucked.
Level 2: Shorts
|Versace High Waisted Shorts (eBay, $25), Finders Keepers Shorts (eBay, $15)|
Level 3: Skirts
|Cue Layered Skirt (eBay), MNG striped skirt (Anglicare, $8)|
Level 4: Layered Under Outerwear
Including all blazers, coats and miscellaneous other forms of outerwear, demonstrated above - the anorak. An anorak with pleather sleeves? A sure fire way to toughen up a typically feminine piece.
Level 5: Layered under Jumpers
|Topshop Pastel Pink Knit Jumper (eBay), Aztec Print Jumper (Salvos, $3)|
Level 6: Layered Over Dresses
|Mika & Gala Dress (Salvos, $10)|
Level 7: As Outerwear Itself
Ahaha, the contrast of this is almost as if My Little Pony was revamped into a horror movie.. has that been done already? It's almost ironic in a sense at this point. When worn with bottoms, a casual look is garnered if worn untucked.

Level 8: Accessorise
Or with bow ties, or necklaces your call. Bow ties and ties have that kind of preppy feel that I find is so attractive. In one instant swoop, I feel that it adds an edge of sophistication and quaintness.
And that wraps up the Outfit Algorithm for the denim shirt. Often times I think it's useful to have the multiple ways in which things can be worn in one single viewing session as it's easy to overlook it during times of mass panic like 'oh god, I'm going to be LATE', or taking in the vastness and number of choices one's wardrobe can pose.
Until next time!
