Denim might be the most powerful item in your fashion repertoire. It’s versatile, adaptable, definitely an obvious go-to, and it works in any look from an easy off-duty to a more elevated look. A pair of casual jeans is really your most important tool in mastering your styling skills.

When you’re in the market for a cute springtime look, jeans are essential. They’re low-maintenance, able to dress up, and perfect for those weird-weather days that start chilly and get warmer. So, it is imperative to learn the art of dressing up casual jeans—raising a look from simple to upscale with the aid of a few key pairings.

No matter which style of casual jeans you fancy, the same general tips hold true. While we love a boyfriend or wide leg jean, it’s just as easy to dress up a skinny, straight-leg, or bootcut pair.

It’s best to start from the top and work your way down. An oversized sweater or top is your best bet, and stay away from neutral colors. A warm tone is best for both spring days and upgraded looks. Go for something classic, rounded neck and some nice, ribbed detailing.

Next, of course, you’ll need shoes. This is where you have the most freedom. A heel or wedge is crucial to truly solidifying your dressed-up style. Consider something trendy—maybe block or kitten heels. Then last, but definitely not least, grab a pair of sunnies and you’re good to go!
