A pair of jeans, hands down, is a must-have for every girl. Available in a variety of cuts, shapes, and washes, it is the perfect option for days when you want to look stylish – but don’t have much time to assemble a head-turning ensemble. Take your denim game into a whole other level by trying any (or all!) of these cute outfits with jeans.
Roll ‘Em Up
Some summer days can be just too hot that you might think of foregoing your favorite pair of jeans for a skirt or shorts. It should not be the case though – the solution is as simple as rolling up the hems of your jeans.
Showing your ankles can give you the much needed ventilation for your legs – especially when the sun is high and mighty. Wear a refreshing white or light-colored top with your jeans to get the ultimate cool feeling – even if it’s like the Nevada desert out there.
Channel the Coachella Vibe
Even if you were not able to attend the popular Coachella festival this summer, you can achieve its boho vibe – without showing much skin – with a pair of flare jeans. No need for crop tops or tank tops as well (although you’re free to wear one if you want to) as you can achieve the bohemian chic look with a button-down polo. All you just need to do is tie the ends in a knot – such as the style worn by the model below.
While the flare jeans are not as popular as they once were, this retro-feel denim is your best option during the sweltering summer days. After all, they are not as restrictive as the usual skinny jeans.
Denim on Denim
When it comes to cute outfits with jeans, the denim on denim is one trend you should try out. Adored by many bloggers and celebrities, this fashion risk is one you should tread lightly. The key to pulling this off is to use contrasting shades of denim – choose a lighter wash for the top and a medium wash for the bottoms.
Another way to dazzle in denim on denim is to be mindful about balance. If you plan on wearing tight jeans, make sure to wear it with a loose, flowy top. If you wish to don flared jeans, wear a structured or slim-fit top. Avoid pairing wide-legged jeans with a baggy shirt as this ensemble will make you look chunkier than usual.
Upgrade your Look
Contrary to popular beliefs, jeans are not just for casual day-outs and what not. You can even wear it to office – as long as you wear it with more ‘formal’ pieces (and as long as your boss is okay with you wearing jeans, of course!)
Take inspiration from Olivia Palermo, who looks stunning in her white coat, striped top, ripped jeans, and high heels.
Adding a flair of elegance to your trusty pair of jeans – no matter how distressed they might be – is highly possible – as long as you add your classier, dressier items into the mix. Think button down blazers, frilly button-down tops, ornate jewelries (even the fancy ones will do,) and a mean pair of heels. With these items, you can look impeccable – even if you’re wearing a $10 pair of jeans.
Go for Grunge
If you are not the usual girly-girl who lives for frills and laces, then Gigi Hadid’s grungy look is something you should opt for.
Pair your distressed denims with a leather (or pleather) biker jacket and virtually any top for a rock chic look that’s perfect for a concert, school, or a date even.
While a black leather jacket might be your first choice for your outfits with jeans, you can break out of the usual color spectrum by going for a leather jacket in ravishing red or bubblegum pink.
As for the shoes, you have the option to go all-out biker with boots. You can also channel the sporty spice look with your trusty pair of sneaks. Heck, you can even go for the sophisticated grunge aura by wearing your biker jacket and ripped jeans with a pair of high heels.
Dress to Impress
Perhaps you have a super short dress – or a frock which you don’t like to wear alone. Worry not as your favorite pair of jeans can come to the fashion rescue!
Many bloggers and fashionistas are currently channeling the dress over jeans trend – something you could try out at work, school, mall, virtually any place you wish to go to.
You can wear your dress with skinny jeans, distressed jeans, even flared jeans. The possibilities are endless because jeans look great with everything, duh.
Remember to keep your look simple though. Avoid the unnecessary baubles as the ‘dress over jeans combo’ is an attention-seeking statement by itself.
Show Some Skin
Jeans cover up much of your legs – so why not show some skin on the upper part of your body? Before the summer draws to an end, make the most out of your crop tops, tank tops, and other skin-baring summer staples. Wear them with your favorite pair of jeans and be the talk of the town – wherever you might be.
Just in case the weather gets unpredictable, bring a jacket, vest, or blazer along with you, as it can help you upgrade from sexy to sophisticated right away. An outerwear can also help you prepare for the worst case scenario – you wouldn’t want to be feeling cold just in case the temperature drops all of a sudden.
Shine in a Scarf
Go through your mom or grandma’s closet and look for their scarves, as you can make these as your retro centerpieces for your cute outfits with jeans. All you just need to do is wear a vibrant, printed scarf on your neck or your hair – or as your denim belt even.
What’s great about a scarf is that it is fashionable as it is versatile. You can use it to wipe your sweat – or cleanse your face in case you eat your food messily. You can even wrap it around your bag handle to add some design to your bag.
Remember – jeans are anything but ordinary. With the right top, shoes, and accessories, your favorite jeans can help you transform you from a cute girl next door into a high-profile fashionista.
