although the country is slowly starting to open back up, we’re still spending a lot, if not the majority of our time at home. and there’s nothing wrong with wearing blue jeans, tees, and sneakers. believe me; i’m reaching for that combination a lot more these days. last week, we revisited jeans after months of athleisure wear. today, we’re going to build on that post and talk five ways to elevate your blue jeans into a timeless and classic look. we’re gonna start with my base outfit below and build five new ones from it by addition, subtraction, and slight modification.
add a blazer, leopard shoes & belt
in our first look, we’ve kept my original jeans but built the outfit around the mighty blazer. a blazer will elevate any look, and when you add the leopard pattern with these (similar) shoes and belt, you’ve got a timeless classic.
for our second look, we’ve kept the blouse but swapped out the jeans for skinny ones. the whole idea here, though, is to add accessories. a belt can be an attention grabber and add life to any pair of jeans. swap out your daily jewelry for something a little more eye-catching. and don’t forget to add a color pop by using a sweater as an accessory.
for our third look, let’s keep the skinny jeans but add a poplin popover for that classic long-over-lean look. such a simple and clean look, but remarkably comfortable as well. one of my favorites. (and you didn’t think i’d forget that pop of color. how about these (similar) shoes?)
with a chunky cardigan
for our fourth outfit, we’ve kept our base but simply added a chunky (similar) cardigan. talk about reusability. it looks like we’ve got a few more days of cooler weather here in Athens, and i’ve definitely reached for this cardigan more than once. super comfy without loosing that timeless classic look.
add a pop of color
and finally, don’t forget about colored jeans. whether you’re going with black, white, red, or some other color entirely, the fashion possibilities they afford us are endless. i’ve stuck with a neutral today: gray jeans. and i’ve built the entire outfit around the safari jacket—one of my personal favorites.
thanks for joining us, ladies. i hope today’s post gives you some inspiration on how to take your jeans and restyle them in a way that gives you that timeless classic look we’re always striving for over here on the blog. if you’re looking for more inspiration or want to see how these outfits look in 3D, be sure to check out our new YouTube video.
