6 Outfit Formulas to Try When You Just Want to Wear Your Favorite Pair of Jeans Again

It’s no secret that high-waisted jeans are trending. Super versatile and flattering, a good pair of stiff vintage jeans can give you style inspiration for days thanks to their high-fashion appeal and classic shape. Ready to try this born-again trend? Take a look at how some of the CF community members style their blues, and then shop their looks to try out the denim trend for yourself.  


Get Saturated With a Bright Color

If all-things-blue isn’t your thing, then substitute a neutral-colored top with a rich, bright colored one. To do this, try pairing crimson or mustard yellow with a pair of dark-wash denim. A black handbag and flats completes the outfit without taking your eyes off the blueness of your jeans. Valentines Day outfit inspo, anyone?
