Dressing up your Denim!!

Who doesn't love their jeans?  Jeans are such a closet staple, and can be worn in endless ways.  While jeans are generally considered a casual garment, they can easily be dressed up. 
There are however, a few things to pay attention to:
  • The Colour- To take your denim to the next level, ensure that you've chosen a dark wash as opposed to a light or faded wash.  And definitely no rips!
  • The Fit- You want to make sure they fit well, anything too baggy won't work.  Skinny or subtly flared jeans will look the best when you're aiming for a dressier look.  Boyfriend fit or extreme flares/bell bottoms definitely say CASUAL!
  • The Shoes- The shoe you choose is important.  Save the sneakers or flip-flops for your casual days.  For a dressed up look, you can't go wrong with a pump or a ballet flat.  As long as they're not ratty or beat-up looking!  Sandals would work too, but they should be a dressy sandal, not something summery.
  • The Top- What you wear with your jeans takes the outfit to whatever level you want to go.  Jeans day at work?  A blazer and pumps with some simple accessories (like I've done here) are the way to go.  If you're headed out for the night, lose the blazer and swap the shoes for a sexier strappy sandal!

Blazer is from Dynamite; Jeans are Rag & Bone

I hope this helps, and you have fun dressing up your denim!!

Shoes are Rock & Republic from Kohl's
