Styling ideas for denim jeans

Styling ideas for denim jeans




The humble denim jean often gets overshadowed in fashion mags by images of fabulous ball gowns or celebrities in bikinis. But there’s nothing to stop you taking denim into the fashion stratosphere – all you need is some clever styling. The right shoes, jacket or accessories will raise a pair of denims to chic status, and you’ll be comfortable to boot.

Avoiding a pitfall like lazily throwing on a nondescript T-shirt is key to making your jeans work for you. Hoodie tops are also a big no-no, even if you pair your ensemble with high heels. If you’re looking for some inspiration, Harper’s Bazaar magazine has a gallery of celebrities who have got it right, managing to look effortlessly chic while wearing nothing more daring than jeans and a great pair of ankle boots.

Of course, the Harper’s article focuses on models and actresses who have unlimited funds to spend on designer goodies to up their denim glamour factor but there is no need to work that hard. Go with an idea, then adapt it. For example, if you like the look of January Jones in ankle-grazing indigo skinnies with stilettos but cannot afford the Isabel Marant tunic, you can improvise. Find a chiffon blouse, with or without a pussy bow neckline, for a similarly chic smart casual look. Team with a hand-held tote to complete the look.

Matching a pair of jeans with a smart blazer is an easy way to add a bit of formality and structure to your denim styling. A graphic T-shirt here could look relaxed and bohemian, while a ruffled blouse à la Kate Middleton would look quite smart. Go for an oversized blazer if you want the androgynous ‘I’ve-just-nicked-this-off-my-boyfriend’ look, or a neat tailored version for classic chic.
During the day, ankle boots are a real celebrity favourite, whether you’re going for skinny, straight, flared or bootcut jeans. They’re so practical for winter, and add a bit of height to your outfit. For a more equestrian look, team skinnies with knee-high or even over-the-knee boots: this looks fab but will also keep your legs warm in these chillier months.
