8 Fun Ways to Dress Up Your Jeans
1. Add a Strong-Shoulder Jacket
Zoe Saldana makes skinny jeans red carpet-ready by adding a feminine Isabel Marant blazer with ribbon detailing. Bonus: A plain tank is the only underpinning you need with a statement jacket.
2. Rock Tall Boots
Dark blue jeans really can go anywhere when accessorized correctly. Claudia Schiffer makes hers fashionably chic at the Chanel Spring 2011 fashion show by wearing them with knee-high leather boots and keeping the rest of her outfit simple.
3. Slip on Statement Shoes
Sarah Jessica Parker proves once again that shoes really can make the outfit. When you're wearing a pair this eye-catching, be sure to roll up your jeans so the world can see them.
4. Wear a Lace Top
January Jones mixes the old with the new by combining a vintage-feeling, long-sleeve lace top with fashion-forward skinny jeans. Wear a nude cami underneath so you don’t distract from the intricacy of the lace.
5. Pile on the Necklaces
Why wear one necklace when you can wear three? Joy Bryant dresses up her trouser jeans by layering on strands of ribbon-wrapped pearls. Necklaces of similar materials and different lengths pull the look together.
6. Top with a Tuxedo Jacket
Kate Bosworth puts a spin on the classic crisp white button-down and jeans combo by topping it with a white menswear-inspired Rag & Bone tuxedo jacket. Well-tailored, fitted pieces and extra high-heels make the outfit sexy.
7. Layer Chunky Knits
Elle Macpherson skips a jacket and stays toasty by wearing a substantial sweater coat over a crewneck sweater with her Miss Sixty cropped jeans. Avoid extra bulk by highlighting your waist with a cute belt, like Elle’s gold snake-print Michael Kors.
8. Sport Something Sparkley
Molly Sims glams up basic black jeans by pairing them with a sequin top. To tone down the shine for a more casual event, follow Molly’s lead and layer with a boyfriend blazer.
