Just like your best friend or a good cup of coffee, denim is one of those fail-safe trends that you can always rely on to get you feeling your best. No matter what the season, a denim staple such as perfectly worn in cut-offs or body-hugging jeans are sure to be a great base for your outfit. Need another reason to be a ‘blue jean baby’ (ahem, Elton John pun)? Denim has proved to be timeless, so you know that whether it’s a thrift store bargain or a serious investment piece, you’ll be wearing it for years to come.

With so many RAD qualities, why not make denim the main act, so to speak? These days, the classic denim styles that we know and love can easily be found with a little something extra to make them pop. For example, a touch of crochet, lace or embellishments will take your denim game from basic to strong.

This Fashionista let her jean jacket be the focal point of her outfit; its bold print and oversize ‘90s silhouette gives it a unique edge. By wearing socks underneath her jelly sandals, the summer shoe favorite becomes equally wearable for winter and adds an unexpected element to the outfit. The Fashionista’s backpack plays on the clashing prints trend, and by sticking to neutral colors, it works perfectly with the jacket.

How To: If you’re not sure what to pair with your denim to make it stand out, keep to black basics and use your accessories to dress things up.
