Denim holds a special place in every fashion girl’s heart. They’re classic, comfortable, and make a constant appearance on the fashion scene. But if you’re attempting to incorporate them into an elevated, polished look, you’ll need to rely on some stealth styling tricks. Which is why we decided to investigate the best way to dress up jeans this season.
After taking all of the leading trends into consideration, we’ve created a foolproof formula for a chic outfit: jeans, a tailored plaid blazer, and heels. Elevate your favorite pair of straight-leg jeans—we’re huge advocates for the silhouette—with a buttoned blazer and heeled sock boots (or timeless black stilettos). Finish your outfit off with minimalistic jewelry and a structured bag.
