I don’t think there is a piece of clothing more multifunctional and practical than jeans. We wear them everywhere and we all have several styles in our closets that work well for us and make us feel good. Jeans aren’t only comfortable, they can also make our figure look better, optically lengthen the legs, slightly emphasise our behind and are generally very compatible with the modern lifestyle. So how can we wear and style them? There is a myriad of ways and many suggestions that end up being the perfect mix of elegant, likeable and fashionable to wear to work or a special occasion. Lucky for us, jeans became so significant, everybody ended up accepting and appreciating them. Today, I am going to write about how to wear jeans to make them as contemporary as possible, and you just have to pick the right fit for your figure, because not every fit will suit you the same. Keep in mind that that several models are fashionable: skinny, boyfriend, mom jeans, and cropped, but the latter should be styled with heels, because of their length. You can find at least a couple models that suit you nicely regardless of your height and weight, and remember ‒ the top part of the outfit plays an important role as well.
Blazer for some drama. This is always a good solution: jeans, T-shirt or a shirt, blazer. It’s an eternal combination, always appropriate, beautiful, fashionable, youthfull. Personally, I would wear heels with it, but ballet flats or ankle boots are also smart choices. I find high heels sexy, which makes them trendy in combination with jeans. Add a handbag, a nice piece of jewellery and you’re ready, whether it’s day or night. A black blazer is classic and wonderful, but you can also opt for something lighter, white even, and wear it in the winter without a second thought.
Try blouses. I know, I’m starting to repeat myself, but it’s a fact: blouses come to our rescue in every possible situation, so wear them! With ruffles, slightly sheer, silk, satin, dotted or striped, floral, block coloured. Whimsical models with ruffled sleeves and shoulders are in this year; personally, I’m a big fan, I just love this trend! Another must have is a slightly sheer blouse, which can be dotted, because it has a very sophisticated tone to it, and gives all jeans a more sexy undertone. Jeans + blouse = perfect!
Jeans and longer knitwear. Knitwear can be a substitute for a coat, at least indoors, while you will still need one outside, so don’t fret over it. Long knitwear is perfect for women with wider hips, but you should wear it with high heels to get long, long legs. Add a tight fitting T-shirt or blouse underneath, and if you’re slim, you should also be able to pull of the ruffled, looser models.
Jeans and plaid. The latter is the “must have” of the season, and simply gorgeous; red plaid is especially wonderful in the holiday season. It doesn’t necessarily have to be red, you can opt for blue, green, or black, depending on your taste. Plaid is considered sporty in general, so style it with elegant accessories, such as a delicate belt, small bag, glittery jewellery. Find the contrasts between the pieces and the jewellery, and you’re set!
Jeans and earth tones. Play around with all shades of brown, from light to dark, including cream and golden. Jeans will become much more sophisticated this way; it’s worth investing in a camel coat, because it’s a “must have”, and you can wear it with sneakers. Similar is true for a high-neck sweater or a graceful cashmere knitwear. The fact that a piece is of higher quality helps the overall look seem much more elegant, even if the more expensive pieces are styled with basic and ordinary jeans.
Christmas sweaters. I have two of those at home and every time I wear them my friend comment that I look like Bridget Jones. I’m not sure it’s meant as a compliment, but I can say that I like them anyway: positive messages, the moon and the stars, reindeers, red, green and dark blue, and some silver snowflakes. I like the girly vibe in combination with jeans, because it goes together well and makes sure we fit in with the holiday spirit.
Jeans and metallic tones. For the grand finale, experiment with metallics, because they have a festive air about them. Jacket with glitter, lurex blouse, studded bag, metallic heel shoes … There are many possibilities and all of them go nicely with jeans, so you can have your pick. Let the jewellery follow this inspiration, the earrings can be big, but no need to overdo the rest.
