The key to dressing up a classic pair of basic jeans is to accessorize. Jeans are a staple in almost every wardrobe, but that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Shoes, jackets, scarves and hats can all turn a classic pair of jeans into a great outfit.
Before dressing up a pair of jeans, it is important to find pair that fits well and is flattering. Dark-wash jeans usually appear dressier than lighter washes or faded jeans.
Blazers and fitted jackets are an easy way to dress up a pair of jeans. Casual jeans can be dressed up for the office by coordinating them with a tweed jacket, heels and a pearl necklace. Jeans can also be dressed up for a night out by wearing them with a dressy top, sparkly heels and a sleek clutch. A black button-up top tucked into a great pair of jeans can look dressy and be accessorized with a wide-brimmed hat, a statement belt buckle or tall boots.
Wearing sophisticated, sparkling jewelry is also an easy way to dress up jeans. The great thing about jeans is that there are infinite ways to accessorize and dress them up, so anyone can be creative.
