Guest Post: Dressing Up Denim

In Beauty & Fashion by Jen

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.
