Jeans are a wardrobe essential and almost everyone on the planet has a pair. They are comfortable, versatile, easy to dress up or down and never go out of fashion. Many people will wear their jeans until they fall apart but if you have a pair that you adore but feel they’re getting a bit boring then here are some fun ways to breathe life back into tired, dull denim:
#1 Go Dressy Up Top
Denim can be dressed up just as easily as dressed down so spice things up by donning a dressy top or blouse. Go smart casual with a flowing blouse, sparkly sequin vest or a pretty shirt. You’ll instantly feel smarter, more comfortable and can make a statement with the way the denim sets off your top.
Make your look more interesting by adding accessories to your basic denim. A boldly colored or patterned purse, an eye-catching wide belt or even a glam headband can add a touch of fun and glamor to your look. Many of us return to denim when we want comfort but it’s so easy to adapt and include accessories that turn a basic, classic look into a much more vibrant one.
#3 Statement Jewellery
This idea works for any outfit with a basic background that you can build on. Big, bold earrings and a stack of bangles will add instant glam to your denim look. A long necklace will also flatter the figure by adding the appearance of length to your body. A thick, colorful chunky necklace will draw the focus up to your face. You can go crazy with jewellery when you have denim as the base.
If you’re feeling adventurous then why not consider dyeing your jeans. It’s also easy to glue on a touch of sparkle like rhinestones or sequins. Everyone loves adding some sparkle to their look and you won’t need much to really glam up that tired denim. Some people might want to embroider a unique design on their denim. The only limit is your imagination so take a trip to the local craft store and glam up that denim!
Pair up your jeans with a smart jacket or blazer to instantly transform your casual look into a chic, stylish one. This idea also has the benefit of being very flattering as the straight lines of the jacket or blazer can cover any lumps and bumps you might want off-limits. A good blazer should be as essential as the white tee and pair of jeans. You can’t go wrong with this smart casual style.
#6 Killer Heels
Get a sexy boost to your jeans by pairing up with some gorgeous high heels. Black jeans especially can be seriously glammed up by adding a pair of killer black heels and a black jacket. Heels also make your legs look leaner and longer so what are you waiting for? Kitten heels in animal print work perfectly with denim too.
#7 A Touch of Lace
Denim is a unisex material but it’s easy to add a feminine twist. Try pairing up your jeans with some lace to make you feel gorgeous and girly. Whether you want to be creative and add lace inserts or simply team up jeans with a pretty lace top – this contrasting look will be sure to turn heads.
#8 Get Ripped!
If you’re feeling brave and want to freshen up an old pair of jeans then why not tear them to get that sexy ripped look? You can leave them with rips, which is on trend right now, or choose to insert patches of other material. Showing a bit of skin through your denim is daring and sassy but just be careful not to ruin them!
#9 Bold Prints
Another simple way to glam up your jeans is to team them up with bold prints and geometric patterns. Whether you go for a bright floral, a statement geometric or a sexy leopard print – anything goes with denim so feel free to express yourself!
#10 Turn Them Into Something Else
Bored with an old pair of jeans? Fancy trying a new style but don’t want to pay a fortune? Then why not make your own adjustments to your existing pair? There are plenty of easy to follow tutorials online that will show you how to make turn-ups on your jeans or how to change them into having an elasticated cuff at the bottom. There are many different styles when it comes to denim fashion so if you fancy a new look then it might be time to get out the sewing kit and give your jeans a makeover!
