HOW TO STYLE YOUR JEANS
TOP TIPS FOR WEARING DENIM

We all love our jeans for how easy they are to wear. Dress them up or down and you’ve got a great go-to outfit. Even so, sometimes it feels like your look can get a little stale.

Read on to find some new inspiration for your favourite pair of jeans! We’ve got styling advice for black jeans, high waisted jeans, white jeans, and much more. We’ve even thrown in some bonus tips for how to wear denim jackets.


HOW TO STYLE STRAIGHT LEG JEANS

A simple pair of classic jeans are best used as a canvas you can build the rest of your outfit on. Go for bright, block-coloured tops as a statement piece, paired with a dark navy blazer or jacket and black flats or heels.

Alternatively, why not roll up the hems to the ankles to show off a pair of statement heels. Combine the look with a fitted sweater.

HOW TO WEAR SKINNY JEANS

Skinny jeans today have become a new favourite and look like they’re now entrenched as a fashion staple, not just a passing fad

Given their slimming look, consider pairing your skinny jeans with an oversized cardigan or overcoat and a nice pair of heels.

In winter, skinny jeans are the perfect pair of bottoms as they go perfectly tucked into a pair of high or even over-the-knee boots. Match them with a loose top such as a long tunic, or a button-down shirt whose hems and collar peek out of a woollen sweater.

DISTRESSED DENIM

Distressed denim is a tough material to dress in a way that creates a feminine look, but there’s plenty of inspiration to be had.

For example, you can dress them up with a loose top, stilettos and a coat. For summer, throw on your distressed jeans with a blazer, striped t-shirt and some strappy heels.

Distressed denim also looks great with a graphic tee and military jacket or a loose pullover.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK JEANS

Black jeans are the go-to option for women looking for a classier pair of jeans suitable for the office. But the great thing about them is that they can be dressed up or down depending on your other fashion choices.

For the office, consider wearing a white blouse or button down top with a cute pair of booties or heels. A chunky necklace rounds out the look and adds a nice statement piece. For cooler weather, add a blazer or jacket with a leopard print or graphic pattern.

Don’t be afraid to go all black with black jeans and a black shirt, as long as you add a dash of colour in your accessories: a necklace, scarf or bag.

To tone down black jeans, wear them with a plaid shirt and some ballet flats for a comfy but effortless look.

HOW TO STYLE HIGH WAISTED JEANS

High waisted jeans

The key to high waisted jeans is to accentuate your waist. Go for tops that end at the midriff to show off the waistline of your jeans - and even a bit of your waist if you’re comfortable with it.

Some options to consider:

  • A blouse or t-shirt tucked into the waistline
  • A crop top or tank top
  • A cropped sweater
  • A shirt knotted in the front
  • A corset top or bralette

Once you’ve picked your top, layer up with either a chunky cardigan, kimono or cargo jacket. Accessorise with heels, a narrow belt, or sneakers, depending on how casual or formal you want to go.

HOW TO STYLE BOYFRIEND JEANS

Thanks to their loose-fitting nature, boyfriend jeans look best if they’re combined with a fitted top. They’re also commonly rolled at the hem to show off some statement shoes, such as low-heeled sandals or sneakers.

Layer up with a military jacket or vest, or go the other extreme by choosing an oversized sweater for an all-out comfortable look.

HOW TO STYLE WHITE JEANS

White jeans are always a tricky one to style, but done well, they can create a look that really stands out.

For a smart casual look, consider a stylish flannel or plaid shirt - adding a belt helps style the look for the office. Alternatively, striped t-shirts are always an ideal go-to with white denim.

Leather or blue denim jackets pair perfectly with white jeans. But for more formal events, consider a dark-coloured blazer.

For more casual occasions, combine your white jeans with a nice, chunky sweatshirt and some brown boots.

Perhaps the most versatile of jackets, the denim jacket is the perfect addition to a feminine wardrobe. There are truly so many outfit combinations you could pair up with a denim jacket that it would be impossible for us to list them all here.

However, a few of our favourites include:

  • Wear over a lace dress and with boots.
  • Pair a cropped denim jacket with a maxi dress.
  • Match it with a leopard print skirt and white tee.
  • Don’t shy away from denim with denim; pair a light wash denim jacket with darker jeans.
  • Go for black underlays - black pants and top - with a denim jacket over the top.
  • Wear with a navy striped shirt and cargo pants.
  • Combine with brightly coloured jeans.
