1. Consider the right style.
Petite women will look great in high-waist or cropped jeans since both styles elongate the legs. Curvy women can embrace bootleg pants because it lifts the butt and accentuates the hips.
2. Prioritize comfort.
Denim should feel like second skin. If you feel any restriction or chaffing, the item may be too tight; you're not wearing the right style for you body type; or the fabric is stiff. Soft or stretch denim are the best bets for comfort.
3. Explore other denim textures.
Yes, denim comes in various textures. It can be ripped, frayed, vintage, stone-washed, or waxxed—these can add character to regular blue jeans.
4. Go beyond jeans.
Denim can come in other forms. Whether it may be a skirt, chambray shirt, jacket, denim shorts, or overalls, these are all versatile pieces that you pair with anything.
5. Upgrade with accessories.
A denim outfit's individuality can be achieved with the right accessories. For example, the classic combo of button-down shirt and skinny jeans can be far from basic with a simple addition of eye-catching heels. Or you can try wearing minimalist accesories for that elevated touch.
