Blue jeans are my favorite pants out there, second only to sweatpants. But wearing normal, medium-wash blue jeans can get a little boring, even for a blue jean lover like me. Here are some easy ways to spice up your blue jeans game so that you can add some flair and fun to your outfit.
One of the easiest ways to spice up a pair of classic blue jeans is to find a pair with painted patterns (or you can paint the patterns yourself). A pair with neutral patterns (in white, black or beige) will let you add some flair to your outfit while keeping your pants pretty simple. If you want to paint on your own patterns, all you need is a stencil, fabric pant and a sponge brush — it's incredibly easy!
If you want to add some color or designs to your blue jeans, you can opt for colored fabric patches. If you want to keep your jeans relatively simple (with some added flair), jeans with denim patches are the way to go. Denim patches make your jeans look unique without adding a lot of color or detailed designs.
Blue jeans with embroidered detailing is tres chic, but you don't want to go overboard. Look for jeans that have embroidery in a few colors on part of the pair of jeans — embroidery that covers the majority of the pair of jeans in many colors can look tacky.
If you don't want to rock blue jeans with embellishments, you can spice up your blue jeans with unique washes, like acid wash, faded or super dark. See this card for tips on how to prevent your jeans from fading so that you can keep rocking that unique wash for years to come.
Blue jeans with hardware details, like zippers or buckles, give off an edgy vibe. You can tone down the edginess a bit with a girly floral top or play it up with a leather jacket.
Low-rise jeans are still very much in style, but high-waisted jeans are also in style and give off more of a high fashion feel. Try a pair of high-waisted pants paired with a crop top or a tucked-in tank or tee. You can also play around with the type of fastener at the waist — buttons, zippers, etc.
