Guest Post: Dressing Up Denim

In Beauty & Fashion by Jen1 Comment

Here on JENerally Informed we like to cover a wide range of topics such as men and minivans, social media stalkers, LEGO and livestock. I think that subject variety is important because none of us are one dimensional. We have, thus far, not discussed fashion.

Now I like to look as good as possible, especially when I am wearing jeans, but fashion expert I am not. So I was very excited when I found Megan The Fashionista Momma and she assured me that there are definitely ways to add a little something special in order to rock our jeans. I love how simply and easily she explains dressing up denim. 

Turning things over now to the professional, The Fashionista Momma:

Dressing Up Denim

We all love a good pair of jeans. They are casual comfort but, what about for a Friday night?
I am here to tell you that you totally can wear denim. Here are some of fave ideas for dressing up denim.
  1. Stilettos. A dressy sandal or classic pump is always a perfect add on. They can be worn with a slouchy pair of boyfriend jeans or a long pair of skinny jeans.
  2. Blazer. Throw a perfectly fitted blazer over the top of your shirt. Clean and sophisticated or you can even add a little sparkle.
  3. Sequin or lace top. Even just adding a shirt with a detailed collar will do wonders for dressing up your denim.
  4. Accessorize your look. A statement necklace, cocktail ring, or a great set of bracelets. Swap out the oversized day bag for a bright, metallic or patterned clutch.
  5. Finally makeup and hair should be evening glam. Darken your makeup, change your lip color and jazz up your hair with more body and shine.


  1. You can indeed dress up denim. I've done it for years.

    Have a fabulous day. :)
