Jeans are the hero piece of many a weekend look.
If you want some chic ideas on how to keep things fresh, here are five classy ways to rock your jeans this Friday and beyond!
1. Embrace Embellishment
One way to perk up a weekend look is with a pair of jeans that have some small, pretty detail.
The delicate embellishment at the bottom of these jeans adds a feminine touch and is a great way to put the focus on your pretty ankles.
I’ve kept the sweater a solid color to make the embellishment pop. The sneakers are neutral for the same reason.
2. Try Colored Jeans
Why stick to blue jeans when some fabulous fall-colored jeans are out there? This beautiful burgundy pair, for example, looks stunning with a creamy camel turtleneck.
Add some suede booties and a relaxed leather bag, and you are ready for a nice fall walk through the leaves.
3. Experiment with Cropped Flares
You may have been avoiding cropped flares because you didn’t know what to wear with them, but fall brings the perfect answer. Try a pair of tall, skinny booties.
Sock booties for fall are best. They ensure a nice long, lean leg line and keep your ankles and lower legs toasty warm.
4. Go for a Release Hem
The weekends are a great time to experiment with something new, so if you haven’t tried release hem jeans, why not now?
You can go for regular skinny jeans with a released hem, or for a more fashion-forward look, try a cropped flare.
Not sure what to wear them with? This collage, above, is a relaxed but classy look. Shorter gals are best to tuck to look taller.
5. Switch Skinny for Bootcut
For many gals, skinny jeans are their default jeans, but it’s nice to try a classic bootcut once in a while. The slight flare does wonders to make you look super balanced and shows off your curves.
Rule of thumb – the wider your flare, the higher your heel. You don’t want your shoes to be drowning in your flares. This doesn’t mean you can’t wear a flat if you wish with a bootcut (which has a slight flare), but you won’t get that long leggy look.
If you are going to wear flats such as the loafers above, a pointy-toe flat is best because it helps to elongate your leg line. A dark pointy-toe flat takes it even one step further and would be your best choice if your legs are short.
