This morning we take a look at denim through the eyes of jean-lover Jerrica Navarro, an aspiring actress and fashion blogger born and raised in New York City. Jerrica says her playful, chic style reflects her down-to-earth personality and urban sensibility. We had her send some snaps of her favorite outfits, like the denim short jumpsuit, high-waisted skirt & jacket paired with a deep v-neck and leather belt, and classic white t-shirt & flare leg jeans combo. Check it out below.
“I have a love hate relationship with denim. It seems as though there are a million options to try but very few meet my needs (kinda like men). When I finally find that one fantastic pair of jeans I usually live in them, and pretty much suck the life out of them. Some of my favorites are from BDG, Forever 21, Abercrombie and Fitch, Club Monaco the Gap, Topshop, and some cool stuff I find while thrift shopping. I loath the word jeggings but love denim with extra stretch (I’m aways on the move, so I need it).”

Nicky Hilton in Abercrombie & Fitch
Jean skirts are back in fashion this season. Update a typically bohemian or western look with a boyfriend jacket and ankle boots a la Nicky Hilton for a fresh, casual and edgy look.
D.I.Y. instructions to create your own Jean Skirt
(Source – Life & Style):
Tools needed: Scissors, tape measure, utility knife, sewing machine
Step 1: Cut jeans to desired skirt length
Step 2: Rip open the inseam (inside the legs) with a seam ripper or utility knife
Step 3: Use excess fabric (from the legs that were cut off) to make a patch insert.
Step 4: Sew patch onto inseams in front and back, then trim the hem so it’s even. Wash, dry and wear!
Tip: Jean skirts are great for showing off legs, so keep the length well above the knees. Skirts that are too long can look bulky and dowdy.
