    How to rock your favorite JEANS in 8 totally new ways


    1. For a modern twist on the plain ol' jeans and tee shirt look, swap your average tee with a neon crop top.


    2. Sport dark skinnies, a tunic, and t-strap sandals for a simple look that’s still pulled together.


    3. White is so in this season. Add a pair of crisp white skinny jeans to your wardrobe and keep it fresh.

    5. Snag a pair of brightly colored skinny jeans this season. Pink, yellow, or green really pop against a basic white or black tank.


    6. Capris are making a comeback. Pair ‘em with a tank, sweater, or t-shirt for a no-fuss summer ensemble.


    7. Feelin' a little bit country? Grab a pair of dark solid jeans and throw on a plaid short-sleeve button-down. Top it off with lace-up heels. It's super sassy with a western edge.


    8. Pair black skinnies and a graphic tee with a denim vest for an edgy, rocker chick vibe. All you'll be missing is the guitar, girl.
