How to Wear Denim Like an It Girl

Jeans can be a girl’s best friend. They help you out in a style pinch, comfort you when you’re feeling down and can make you feel fan-freaking-tastic in an instant. Much like your other BFFs, you need to give some time and thought on how to keep them in your life. It’s hard to go wrong with a piece of statement denim and some basic tweed or leather. But we are not just aspiring to avoid a faux pas — we are looking to create a splash.

The best way to make the most of denim is to know what look works on you. If you want to go retro, you can team super flared jeans with a white tee and a printed kimono. If you’re looking for edge, go for double denim, an asymmetrical miniskirt or even a denim tube top.

With these edgy trends, denim is the least basic thing in your wardrobe. Here’s how to make it work for you.
