Denim button ups. We all have one. We all love them. It’s just such a versatile basic!

Here are four ways to wear the staple, dressed up or down, thanks to the one and only Olivia Palermo:

1. Dressed up glam: Denim button up + knee length flowey skirt + clutch + feminine heels
2. Dressed down Canadian tuxedo: Denim button up + lightly distressed skinnies (hers are by AG) + mirrored sunnies (she’s wearing these by Westward Leaning)  + patterned flats (she’s wearing these by Pretty Loafers)
3. Casual summer: Denim button up + textured shorts + killer belt + bold sunnies
4. Dressed up Canadian tuxedo: Denim button up + distressed skinnies + smoking jacket (hers is by Whistles) + metallic heels (she’s wearing these Aquazzura’s) + jazzy clutch

And in case you’re shopping for a denim button up here are good ones in various price ranges: Forever 21 ($22.80)  //  Levi’s ($69)  //  J. Crew ($80)  //   Rag & Bone ($138.60)  //  BLK DNM ($170)  //  MiH Jeans ($230)

1-2 peaches sliced
1 cup (250ml) chilled sparkling water
A few sprigs of basil leaves & lavender
Ice

1. Pour your sparkling wine into a pitcher, add your Cointreau, fruit and basil.
2. Just before serving add sparkling water, stir and add ice as needed.
