Jeans and a t-shirt? Easier said than done. Let me rephrase. Easier said than done well. Keeping it simple today, here are my top 10 quick tips to up your denim game.
1. Vintage- Nothing says cool like one-of-a-kind vintage. And no one does it better than Re/Done. Vintage Levis redone in modern cuts? You can’t lose.
2. Color- Denim doesn’t necessarily mean blue. Change it up with an unexpected pop of color.3. Overalls- The grownup version of your OshKosh B’gosh’s are here to stay. Keep the look mature with elevated separates and accessories.4. Distressed- The more holes, the better.5. Branch Out- Denim is a great place to play. Don’t be afraid to embrace new shapes and sizes. Last year, I was all about the skinny. This year, I can’t get enough of my wide legs and flares.
6. Disguise- Depending on the cut and color, denim can be anything from sloppy to downright elegant. 7. Canadian Tuxedo- Once is good, twice is better. Pile it on.8. DIY- Sick of last season’s jeans? Breathe new life into them with a pair of scissors.9. Footwear- Nothing takes an outfit from dull to dazzling like a killer pair of kicks. The same rule applies to denim. Those sexless overalls and boyfriend jeans become instantly sexy with some sassy heels.10. Have Fun!- Most importantly, denim is a casual, fun fabric. Don’t take it too seriously!
