Denim shirts are a staple piece that’s definitely a worthy investment. But the key is finding the right one. Finding the perfect denim shirt is actually not as easy as it may seem. Sure, there are plenty to choose from. But the key is to find the one that fits perfectly at the shoulders, is the perfect length, and is the perfect shade of blue all in one. And I think I may have found mine here. Meet Siwy Jeans Ellie Denim Snap Front Shirt.
I love this top for several reasons. For one, the cut is perfect. I love how it sits right at the edge of my shoulders. And the length is just right for me. The entire length of the shirt is 29 inches. The sleeve length from the edge of the shoulder hem to the bottom cuff is 24 inches. Another thing I must emphasize is the material. I have honestly never worn a more comfortable denim shirt before. Made of 64% lyocell, 34% cotton and 2% elastan, the denim is extremely soft and stretchy. Most denim shirts don’t have this kind of elasticity to them. I see it more in jeans, not so much in shirts. But this one has a fair amount of stretch, giving the shirt that much more comfort with wear. The material is on the thicker side, so I’ll definitely be wearing this top through the Fall and Winter for sure. I’d say this top runs slightly large because it stretches out a little after some wear.
The buttons are all coppered colored snap closures. Siwy added a nice touch to the back with an inverted back pleat, giving a more slimming effect. The bottom has a raw cut reinforced hem. The color is called Say You Will, which is a medium blue wash with some light fading here and there. I love the wash! It’s such a perfect shade of blue with a contrast colored topstitch, making this top extremely versatile. I’ve already paired it with denim shorts, leather pants, and jeans. While denim on denim, once a major fashion faux paus in the 90s, is now acceptable and very current. So go ahead and layer on that denim.
