10 Denim Tricks Ev­ery Girl Should Know!

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

Cosmopolitan (India) - - FAST GLAM -

1. 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).

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

6. 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.

5. A Blazer Equalsq Fan­cySch­mancy Team boot-cut or skinny jeans with well-fit­ted, bold jack­ets to take them

from ca­sual to for­mal in a jiffy.

7. Sayy 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. Make Your Faves Last For­ever

Wash your jeans fort­nightly. If you wash denim too of­ten, it loses shape and colour. Avoid us­ing hot wa­ter or throw­ing them in

the dryer. Spot-clean spills with a damp sponge and hang dry. Adding 2tbsp of white vine­gar helps set the colour,

pre­vent­ing fad­ing.
