I cannot express the extent of how much I dislike jeans. Jeans are the sweatpants of my closet. They really are. Ask any of my friends. If they see me in jeans, the first question they're likely to ask is if I'm okay.

But I have so many in my closet! *leaves desk to count* Well, 19 pairs can seem like a lot to one person and a little to another, but that is a lot to me! (And that is only counting denim denim. Colored denim not included!) Here are a few of my tricks to feeling not so bleh in jeans:

How To Dress Up Jeans
  • Pair them with a lightweight blouse to add a feminine touch.
  • Add a blazer. Creates a wonderful shape that you won't get wearing a t-shit alone.
  • Statement shoes (and socks in this case) will always jazz up jeans!
  • Two's company! Pair them with a denim top in a different contrasting wash.
  • Accessorize! Let your jewelry, purse, scarf, etc. complete the look!

Now, pick up your closest pair of jeans and sing in Beyonce's voice:

"You gotta let me upgrade ya!"
