As much as I love all the cute summer dresses, it’s probably obvious that denim is one of the most worn pieces in my wardrobe. I wear jeans almost every day because they offer an endless amount of outfit combinations and pair so flawlessly with basics and statement tops. I’m often told jeans can look too laid-back especially if you’re aiming for a dressier look, so I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to dress up your favorite denim pieces for summer.
One of the benefits of wearing denim is that you can easily save in your summer wardrobe since there are so many great affordable brands like the Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara collection at Walmart. Each pair is available for under $40 and covers some of the best trending styles of the season. I put together a few different looks featuring my favorite denim from the Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara earlier this spring and many of them sold out so fast. Walmart just restocked some of the best selling styles (like this pair), so I recommend grabbing them before they sell out again. Scroll ahead for my styling tricks on dressing up denim.
Pick the right pair of jeans
Oftentimes, dressing up your favorite jeans is all about picking the right pair and style. Loose fitting styles with rips and distressing always look far more casual compared to clean skinny jeans with slight distressing. That’s the primary reason why I tend to favor skinnies. These super soft jeans are one of my favorite purchases this season. They’re so easy to elevate given the flattering fit and medium wash. I’m sure they’re going to sell out quick, so be sure to get your hands on them now. What I love most about the denim collection from the Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara collection is that they’re so soft, stretchy, and form-flattering, which means anyone can look good in them regardless of size.
Tuck your shirt and add a belt
Denim can look really basic with a simple top or t-shirt, but one easy trick to make your outfit look instantly dressier is to tuck your top into your jeans and add a belt. This is a styling technique I usually resort to for tank tops, button down shirts, and jersey tops. It looks super classy with high-waisted denim, but works just as well with cutoffs and mini skirts too.
Pair with a statement top
To spice up your jeans with something a bit more fun and flirty, a statement top always does the trick. I typically look for tops with summer prints, ruffle details, and off-the-shoulder necklines. They look so classy and summer chic with form-fitting jeans. The Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara summer collection offers some really great options that you can mix and match with your entire denim collection for a sexy night out.
Slip on a pair of heels
Adding heels to a denim look always adds sophistication and glam. I love showing off a gorgeous pair of heels with a slightly cropped pair of jeans – this combo is a major confidence booster. These Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara have a shorter inseam that looks amazing with heels. However, if you’re on the petite side like I am, you can always cuff them for that cropped look.
