“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity — all I hope for in my clothes.”                     ~ Yves Saint Laurent

Denim is often my ultimate go-to when I have nothing to wear. There is something about this simple, yet chic item of clothing that can transform your outfit from day to night in a snap and is a “must have” for any closet.

Nevertheless, all too often I see girls get stuck in a basic “T-shirt and jeans” look that is okay, but can be unimpressive. Ante up your denim ensemble with the best denim looks by your favorite celebrities (and where you can shop similar items, too!).


Christina Milian arrived at Beauty Con looking playful and relaxed in a fitted, stonewashed denim dress. She paired the look with sneakers for an effortless appeal that allowed her to maneuver through the crowds and speak on stage in style.

An easy way to upgrade your denim? Play with the lengths of your jeans. Wear them mid-calf with booties, like Zendaya did below, or go for a wide-leg pair that will look perfect in the office and gives just a peek of your shoes.
