Get the Look: 8 His and Hers Denim-Inspired Pieces

He said, she said—but everyone says they love blue jeans and chambray.


Ever since the days of recess, you’ve had a hard time playing nice with the boys. They never let you in their clubhouse, their shirts always smelled and they refused to let you braid their hair. UGH. If what they say is true, you won’t be going near Mars any time soon. You’re fine right here on Venus.

OK, OK, time out. We’re calling a cease-fire to this battle of the sexes, thanks to some inspiration from Roberta Oaks and Oliver Men’s Shop, two of our favorite local fashion fixtures. The stylish minds got together for a limited edition, relaxed, denim men’s workshirt that’s as easy to wear as it is effortlessly chic. The cool blue-jeans look isn’t just a man’s world, though: Whether it’s a polished chambray or dark-dye denim, that’s what little boys’ and girls’ styles are made of.

Blue’s company, after all.
