Most people don’t associate high fashion with denim. It’s just usually not a dressy look that we all go for. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t dress it up and wear it to big events. Sure, it may not be traditional, but that’s what makes it so great! If you love wearing denim, follow these tips and tricks to making your denim work at every single event you go to! It’s not easy, but it can definitely be done, and no one will think that you’re underdressed, I can promise you that!
1. Wear It with a Statement Piece
Denim doesn’t mean boring! Wear something bright or fun with a pair of jeans to dress up your denim quickly! A statement piece instantly changes any look, especially when you’re trying to make a pair of statement jeans look fancier!
2. Pair It with Sequins
I think it goes without saying sequins instantly dress up any outfit. No matter what you’re wearing, sequins make every outfit just a little bit more dressed up! If you’re trying to dress up some denim, try wearing sequins with it! Whether you wear a blinged out sweater or sequined ballet flats, it’s such an easy way to dress up your denim!
3. Wear It with a Blazer
Blazers automatically make every outfit look a bit more business professional if you need to go to a casual office party or something similar. Even if you’re not going to an office party, denim pairs so well with blazers. If you need to dress up an outfit a little bit for any reason, add a blazer!
4. Wear Heels
Heels are such an easy cheat if you need a quick switch when you’re casual. Sometimes we just run out of time and need some quick switches to dress up a casual outfit with jeans. Switch your sneakers or ballet flats to heels to instantly dress up a denim look!
5. Include Lots of Jewelry
What is it about jewelry that instantly makes an outfit look like you just spent hours putting it together? Seriously, you could be wearing your oldest white t-shirt with a pair of jeans, but if you accessorize it right with gorgeous jewelry, you’ll look like you just walked off a runway. Trust me on this one!
6. Go for Tall Boots
Tall boots are so chic! They look so sleek and polished. If you’re looking to make a look completely polished and finished, add some tall boots. Denim is so easily dressed up depending on the footwear, and an easy way to dress up your favorite pair of jeans is with a good pair of tall boots!
7. Go for All-Black
All black outfits are one of my favorite ways to make an outfit look polished and chic. Maybe it’s because I associate all-black outfits with chic Parisian women who look like they could be walking on the runways! If you want to be chic and stylish, try wearing black denim and a black shirt with black shoes. You’ll look so simple and chic!
