I can honestly say I would be totally lost without jeans in my wardrobe. They are without a doubt a key piece in every wardrobe. Jeans are so versatile and comfortable I wear them several times a week. From work to dinner to mummying around, they are possibly the most versatile piece of clothing one can own and easily styled up or down so you can be ready for whatever the day throws at you without major outfit changes.
Of course the most important thing about putting together a look with jeans is, of course, the jeans themself. So it’s extremely important that you get yourself the perfect pair. How do you do that? Simple, just make sure the jeans you pick suit your body shape, the fabric is not too stiff and the quality is good so they will last you a long time. With such a big range of denim jeans out there I’m sure you will find your perfect pair in no time and once you get your hands on that perfect pair of jeans, you can have a go at trying some of these outfit ideas to inject some vavavoom to the most basic of basics – denim jeans.
Jeans under dress
I’m a huge fan of layering a dress over my jeans. It instantly makes the outfit look way cooler than tights ever would. For this look to work, try sticking to skinny or straight-leg style jeans, rather than a flare to minimise looking bulky and disproportional.

Dress over jeans is one of those trends that go in and out of fashion (I think the last time I had a go I must have been in my 20s) and at the moment it’s very much in. So I’m having a go at it again but this time styling it like a grown up rather than a grunge lover 20 something year old 😆 . On other other news, the first week of the kids holiday is almost done and I think it went pretty well (apart from when the ghosts attacked and emptied the fairy liquid bottle all over the kitchen 🙈) . #mumlife #ootd #mango #tv_lifestyle #tv_living . . http://liketk.it/2vaQF @liketoknow.it #liketkit

Double denim with a twist
Don’t just think double denim as denim jeans and a denim shirt. Why not try double denim with a dress instead of a shirt or even different coloured denim paired together? Think for instance, black denim jeans and a blue denim jacket or all white denim.
Bling it out!
Think 90’s revival here. If like me you were a teen in 90’s you probably owned some kind of chain belt. I don’t know about you but I loved wearing mine and was very happy to see it was making a come back this season as a micro trend seen at Chanel, Versage and Luis Vuitton runway shows. What better way to bling out your jeans than to adorn them with a beautiful jewellery inspired chain belt? The only rule I live by here is less is more so choose clean designs that elevate your outfit rather than make you look like a christmas tree!
Think high waist, flares or wide leg jeans with a good dose of earthy tones added to the mix and a fabulous pair of boots. So simple but so so good.
Add animal print
We all know animal print is huge this season. Pair snake print, leopard print, zebra print, any animal print you like with your favourite pair of jeans to elevate your jeans and look roartastic!
