21 Day Challenge: Day 12 > Jazz up your jeans



*Sorry guys, I screwed up! I mistyped the prompt in the weekly list as "jeans and a tee" when it was just supposed to be "jeans." You can do jeans and a tee or you can do jeans and a button up. Whatever, as long as you're wearing denim.

I think it's fair to say that jeans are a staple for most people. They're comfortable, versatile, and come in a huge range of styles and price ranges. Odds are good that you A. own a pair of jeans and B. wear them constantly.

The problem is that jeans go just as well with a frumpy t-shirt as a silk top or blazer and, in our casual culture, people tend to reach for the frumpy t-shirt first. So for I want you to bust out those jeans but jazz them up. Go fancy or rock and roll or office chic or whatever, but don't go frump.

  1. i haven't really been doing the challenge, but i've been enjoying your posts about it! i did end up wearing a skirt today, but that's really not unusual for me. i'm almost constantly in skirts, and it's unusual for me to wear jeans.

    pre-mission i was probably almost constantly in jeans... (:

  2. I thought it was jazzing up jeans and a teeshirt, not just jeans?

  3. Ah! I definitely just took part in this challenge unawares :) Best of all, with $2 denim!

    I really do LOVE dressing jeans up, just because it's so against the grain that it's fun, eye-catching, and makes you feel like you made something new in fashion.

  4. I have the same question as sparklesparklesparkle. Didn't the prompt posted last week say it's jazzing up jeans and tee?

  6. Sorry guys, I screwed up. I MEANT for the prompt to just be jeans but mistyped and didn't realize it. I've been giving the prompt wrong to everyone! You can do whatever you want..jeans and a tee, jeans and a button up..whatever, as long as you're wearing denim!

  8. I love Kendi's take! (Of course, pretty much every look she puts together is great!) I'm more of a cardigan and pretty top person than a button up person, so maybe I need to branch out to those. Thanks for posting these!
