Happy Monday! If there is one thing I’m looking forward to when this whole quarantine thing is over it’s physically getting together with my friends and family! I am so looking forward to the moment that we’re allowed to get out of the house again. I’m sure all of you are also missing this important connection to others that we all so desperately need. I can’t wait for Sunday dinners with my family, dinners with other couples, and of course, much-needed GNO’s are definitely in my future! How about you? When the time comes when we’re all free to get out and about, dressing up denim will be my go-to look as it always is! You may be wondering how to dress up your jeans which is why I’m sharing 7 ways to dress up your jeans below PLUS feel free to watch the video to see tons of elevated denim looks in action.

7 WAYS TO DRESS UP YOUR DENIM:
1) WEAR A NECK STACK:
I am a big believer in layering simple and dainty necklaces because it’s such a great way to dress up your favorite denim outfits! One of my go-to necklaces for layering is this gold and silver chain necklace by Marla Aaron – it’s super pretty with other necklaces and great for adding a little edge. Adding a couple necklaces or a statement piece to your wardrobe is an easy and simple way to elevate your entire look when wearing denim.

2) ALWAYS WEAR A BELT:
When I get dressed in the mornings, my look is not certainly incomplete without a belt. Pairing a belt with your favorite denim truly makes you look more polished and sophisticated. Any time you put on a belt with your jeans, you’re guaranteed to look fab! You’ve probably seen me wear this Gucci belt a hundred times because I literally wear it with all my jeans because it’s just that good! I have it in both gold and silver because I love it so much and it’s incredibly chic. If you don’t already have a belt, I’d recommend investing in this one because you’ll wear it all the time like I do – I am wearing a size 75. If this one is out of your price range, no worries, I love this steal version just as much by Rebecca Minkoff!
3) CARRY A QUALITY HANDBAG:
As I’ve said before, I believe every woman should own at least one quality handbag and that doesn’t mean it has to be designer! You don’t have to buy an expensive designer handbag for it to be great quality, but I definitely suggest investing in one that will last a while! Having a nice handbag by your side while wearing denim is going to elevate your look. One of my favorite bags is this taupe handbag by Rebecca Minkoff because the neutral shade goes well with everything, and I love the edgy gunmetal hardware. The RealReal has a plethora of amazing choices if you are wanting a real designer handbag at an amazing price! If you just aren’t sure what kind of handbag you’re wanting to go with, I actually did a video on BEST HANDBAGS OF 2019 that will walk you through how to choose the perfect bag for you!
4) ADD A THIRD LAYER AKA A JACKET:
This style tip has to be one of my favorites and is something I do almost every single time I have a pair of jeans on. Wearing a third layer whether it’s a blazer, a leather jacket, or a faux fur jacket will elevate your look like crazy! When you are wearing a jacket over a cami or a t shirt with a simple pair of jeans, you’re doing yourself a huge favor! I would recommend wearing a blazer for a more business casual or classy look, and this faux leather blazer offered in black and camel by BlankNYC is a must-have. A blazer is a staple piece that is timeless and will never go out of style. If you’re going for a more edgy look for date night or GNO, this gorgeous rose leather jacket by All Saints is so chic and perfect for spring and summer! I’m wearing the blazer in an XS and the leather jacket in a size 0!
5) CUFF YOUR JEANS:
Cuffing your jeans in my opinion is a super cool trick that will take your denim look to the next level. Not only will cuffing your jeans make your legs look longer and slimmer, it also allows you to show off your chic and killer heels! Some of my favorite jeans to cuff are these Mother jeans because of their medium-wash which can be worn all year-round. These are 100% cotton so they will hold their shape very well which I love and they’re reasonably comfortable for not being super stretchy. If you’re wanting these in a more fitted silhouette, I recommend sizing down one size. I’m wearing a more fitted size 24.
6) CHOOSE A DRESSY TOP:
There are lots of different options when it comes to dressing up your jeans with a dressy top whether that’s a lace cami, a satin bodysuit or a metallic blouse. Any of these pieces are great choices for dressing up your denim look, but my go-to signature style item has to be a camisole! I wear them all the time which I’m sure you’ve noticed because they’re super chic and edgy while still looking intentional. I love camis by CamiNYC, especially this white one that I wear all the time. I’ve had this white cami for years, but it still looks brand new because it’s so high-quality and the price is worth it to me after calculating the cost-per-wear! This one comes in white, navy and black and the fit is impeccable. If this one is out of your budget, no worries, I found this Nordstrom dupe I love just as much and it’s only $15!
7) WEAR A PAIR HEELS:
Last but certainly not least, the easiest and more effortless fashion tip I could ever recommend is to wear heels with your jeans! Whether it’s a 2-inch kitten heel or a 3-inch regular heel, it is way better to wear a pair of heels with your denim instead of flats or sneakers. Wearing heels or even a wedge is a simple and sure fire way to dress up your jeans! If you haven’t found a pair of heels that you love, these heels by Vicenza are top on my list right now for so many reasons! They look way more expensive than they are because they are croc-embossed not to mention the pointy toe that will make you look taller and slimmer by elongating your leg! The best part is they aren’t crazy expensive for the amazing quality and I love how wearable and comfortable they are! I highly recommend these heels and they even have a little bit of padding so your feet will never hurt!
