10 Denim Tricks Every Girl Should Know!

These clever styling tips deserve a spot in every girl's jean wardrobe!

Roll up, roll up!

They're so casual-chic! Simply fold your fave pair of jeans till just above the ankle for an instant update. This easy style looks fab with heels or flats like gladiators. Avoid flip-flops (too sloppy).

Heels add chic

How do celebrities make a basic pair of jeans look so fashion-forward? By adding high heels, which give length and sex appeal. Pair stilettos with skinny jeans, but instead of blunt tips opt for pointed-toes that extend your pins further.

You can make your own rock'n'roll jeans

Distressed jeans are climbing the popularity charts and all you need to make your own is a pair of scissors! Use one side of the scissor to make slits with repetitive strokes for a distressed tear. For added grunge, nail in metal studs near the pockets.

When in doubt...

In almost every Cosmo poll, guys say they absolutely love a girl who works the classic white tee and blue jeans combo (that's probably why Cindy Crawford has been working it since the '90s!) Add cool accessories for edge.

Most Popular

A blazer equals fancy-schmancy

Team boot-cut or skinny jeans with well-fitted, bold jackets to take them from casual to formal in a jiffy.

Shading is oh-so clever

The easiest trick in the book-jeans that are darker on the thighs and fade towards the feet give the illusion of slimmer, shapely legs. Extra points for a structured bag and pointy-toe stilettos.

Say yes to white jeans

White jeans add 'elegant' to denim, and play well with prints, stripes, brights, and the classic monochrome look (just add a black blazer). While it's true that white denim isn't as forgiving as darker versions, a longer top will camouflage worry areas.

A button-down keeps it sophisticated

The coolest way to wear denim-for-day is with a simple collared shirt. Pick a bold colour or bright print for max impact.

Know the evening formula

When you were younger, you wore jeans to parties, right? Do the same now, but glam it up with an elegant top, statement accessories and sexy heels.
