How To Tuck Your Jeans Into Boots


We’re a little bitter that we should be thinking about sandals and open-toe shoes at this point, and we’re writing about boots… but mother nature has her own plans. Thus, we’re bringing you a little tip on how to tuck your jeans into boots (especially the non-skinny kind), thank to She Knows.com. Check it out, and be sure to let us know what other denim perils you are facing this week.

how-to-tuck-jeans-into-boots

“First, you’ll want to find a pair of boots that hit right below your knees or a bit higher. They should also be a little loose on your legs, in order to leave room for your pants to be tucked in.

As far as jeans go, opt for a pair that has some flare. Make sure they’re snug on your thighs and fitted at the knees though. Otherwise, they’ll get all bunched up and baggy when you try to tuck them in, which definitely isn’t a good look.

Last but not least, grab some thin, high socks (or trouser socks) to slide over your pants to hold that fold in place. You’ll see what we mean shortly — don’t fret!” (read the full instructions at She Knows.com)

How To Wear Your Favorite Denim Like You’ve Got A Celebrity Stylist


Feel like your jeans are wearing you? Want to make your denim pop but aren’t sure how to style your jeans or denim separates with the stuff in your closet? Never fear! We have a few quick tricks to get your look whipped into shape in no time. Just follow the styling points of these three best-dressed celebs and people will be wondering if you’ve hired a stylist to help you get ready in the morning.

how-to-wear-denim-like-a-celebrity

Check out our quick tips below, and let us know how you like them by posting pics and leaving feedback on our facebook page! We love hearing from you!

The stylish celeb: Whitney Port

The styling tips: Whitney Port rocks a pair of grey destroyed Current/Elliott jeans with a plain white tank and hair flying in the breeze. So what makes this outfit glam? Pop color flats! In this case, the grey jeans look fit for rockstar royalty with the simple inclusion of red ballerina flats. It’s so simple it hurts.

The stylish celeb: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The styling tips: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears a pair of medium-wash R13 jeans like it’s her job. She’s a stunning beauty already, but her look is all about the fur vest she paired with her top and jeans. This season, dramatic jewel toned fur is in—and you can find it at almost any major department store. Try it for a bit of socialite glam that will work everywhere from the Upper East Side to Soho!

The stylish celeb: Heidi Klum

The styling tips: She simply doesn’t age, so that’s a plus. But how does Heidi take her colored denim and turn it into a bonafide goddess uniform? She paired her Paige Premium Jeans in a neutral hue with a top of a similar hue. Monotone outfits with one overall color scheme (varied slightly from top to bottom) are one way of wearing colored denim effortlessly, and if you add a few metallic accessories to the mix, it’s a recipe for no-fail luxe. If you’re feeling bold, a contrast color shoe works well with this tip too.

Get The Look: Denim Shirt and a Space Dress


Style blogger Britney Nason (a.k.a. Disarming Darling) shows us how to wear a faded denim shirt with her colorful “space dress.”  Britney is a vintage clothing lover, so although her clothes are mostly new, she still manages to make everything look less commercial—like a very successful thrift shop expedition worn in her fun and effortless way.  The look is a bit unexpected and an interesting departure from the usual double denim or color-block pairings we’ve seen on street style blogs.  We love that the explosions of colors done up in this crab nebula-designed space dress don’t seem too… spacey.




Want to try Disarming Darling‘s unique vintage-boho chic look?  Make it your own with some personal jewelry and your favorite Wayfarers.  Note: she wore denim shorts underneath that dress and turned the dress into a tunic with a simple side knot.  Don’t forget the tribal cross-body bag to complete the outfit!

GET THE LOOK…

1. 80′s ‘Monterey’ Modern Oversized Wayfarer sunglasses ($12) – buy it at 80′s Purple.

2. Romwe Classic Denim Shirt ($28.99) – buy it at Romwe.

3. Romwe Asymmetric Sweep Chiffon Sheer Shift Dress ($46.99) – buy it at Romwe.

4. ASOS Fantasy Leather Leopard Belt ($21.95) – buy it at ASOS.

5. Zara Biker Ankle Boot ($99.90) – buy it at Zara.

how to wear denim to work allure magazine

1. Distinguish between weekend and work denim. Dark denim rinses are better for office.
2. Avoid stone washed, acid washed, or whiskered, and no low rise; the less flash, the better.
3. When wearing denim on denim, a fitted blazer compliments relaxed trousers or pair a voluminous jacket with skinny jeans.
4. Make sure your denim matches.  Try indigo so that you can’t go wrong ; denim can be worn as a trench coat, blazer, top, boots etc.
