How to Refresh Your Denim for Spring

Because denim finds a place in most people's every-day apparel, it might be a good idea to freshen up your denim looks this summer. Here are four fabulous ways to reinvent your denim:

1. Midwash Mixing
Now that you've gotten over the trauma from your childhood bellbottoms paired with that bedazzled denim jacket, don't be afraid to try a more mature denim on denim look. It's great for the weekend and can even be appropriate for the office if you work in a creative environment. It's easy to put together and can work well with fun accessories.
Tip: Break up the denim with accessories. Try a cute belt!

2. ​Work It In White
The post-labor day rule has come and gone and now it's time to break out the white jeans. Style them with a white blouse - maybe one with a fun pattern. Try two-tone loafers and an oversized watch with this look. Throw in a cute blazer for the office.
Tip: Pair white jeans with a crisp blouse.

3. Flirty Chambray
Break out all the stops with a girly look inspired from Chanel's runway full of deconstructed denim dresses. A denim dress can be worn now with tights. Come spring and summer, trade those tights in for a great pair of wedges. Consider adding a daring boot to give the look more edge.
Tip: Toughen up with leather outerwear.

4. The New Blazer
Nothing works better with printed pants or dresses than a simple denim jacket. Style the jacket like a blazer to create a classy appearance while toning down the office formality of a genuine blazer. You'll turn heads with this unexpected, slightly preppy look.
Tip: Temper prints with basics.
