We say it all the time, but denim is an amazing fabric because it’s so versatile. A pair of jeans can lend to your look, whether you’re heading to an outdoor festival or a lunch meeting with a client. Different colors, cuts, and textures on the market right now make this transitional styling option even more viable. We love the idea of taking jeans and making them totally luxe, because you add the element of glamour while keeping it cool. Today, we’ll show you how to do that with a few simple tricks.
