Nine Ways To Update Your Jeans

Do it like Britney and Justin maybe?


Make like Michelle Monaghan and take your wide leg jeans from am to pm. Add luxe textures (feathers, lurex and anything covered in sequins), plenty of ornate accessories and off you go! Perfect for anyone running from work, straight into Friday night drinks. 

Kick-Flare Denim

A pair of cropped kick flares are ideal when you’re feeling slightly experimental but don’t want to overhaul your whole look. Couple them with other exaggerated silhouettes (a bell sleeve or oversized shirt tucked in at the waist) and make sure to throw on a pair of heels to elongate the leg!


This look is for sartorially savvy girls who want to refresh their work wardrobe. Olivia Palermo gives us a how-to in ’70s-inspired separates by Paul & Joe. The high cinched waist is eternally flattering and next to no pockets create a sleek silhouette.   

Exaggerated Cuff

This trick of the Paris street style crew is a foolproof way to make use of those jeans that are way too long. Tuck in your top- to give yourself some extra shape and wear those mules you’ve been dying to show off.


A sure fire way to update your denim repertoire without having to stray too far from the classic blue jean, while the no–fuss straight cut will give your outfit an effortless feel. They’re best dressed up with a sexy pair of heels or weekend-ready with your beloved slides. 


Embellished denim adds a feminine edge. The high waisted, relaxed-fit screams 90s supermodel, while the multi-coloured florals means all they need is a white top- think either casual and comfortable or more different like this one!


When it comes to patches let the denim do the talking! Keep it simple and style your look with lightweight cottons or a chunky knit. 


Distressed denim is revamped when worn with delicate lace; the grunge and glam can be perfectly offset by your favourite heels. 


Follow in the fashpack’s footsteps by rocking the re-worked jean. The step hem and centre panel make for the perfect optical illusion. Be sure to pull out all the stops when dressing up these beauties- more is more!
