How to Wear Your Favorite Jeans Every Single Day of the Week

By Megan Gustashaw

Everyone has that one pair of jeans that they take home from the store and want to wear Every. Single. Day. The fit is just right—smoothing and lifting without constricting—the wash is on point, and bonus points: it looks good with everything in your closet. The only problem? Feeling like you’re wearing the same thing every day—and everyone knows it. Because we love denim,  we’re not quitters, and, frankly, because we’ve been there too, here are seven fresh ways to wear your go-to jeans right now so you never get sick of them. With style moves this varied, no one else will either. (Not that you care that much what anyone else thinks—this is between you and your baby blues.)

Monday mornings are all about bringing your A-game, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wear a full-on suit. A great blazer and your favorite jeans is plenty formal, especially if the jacket done in a bold color or pattern or finished with a wide lapel that exudes confidence. Complete the look with a delicate cami, your favorite jeans and some cool-girl mule slides and you’re the picture of success.

Want to draw attention away from your ultra-flattering but oft repeated jeans? Enter: the statement sleeve blouse. Slip one of these eye-catching numbers over your head and all eyes will be on your arms, shoulders, and neckline all day. (Perfect if you’ve got more Google Hangouts than in-person meetings.) Of course, it never hurts to punctuate an outfit with a great pair of shoes—with a top and jeans this on point, you can’t leave the rest of your look hanging.

Here’s the quickest way not to let hump day get you down: grab your coolest, breeziest button-down shirt, the one that makes you feel like an off-duty movie star, then add a pair of slides in a bold, bright color. Feel better? Yeah you do. If you’re going to have one of those days that never ends, you might as well bring your style A-game, so you can relish every minute of it. (Need a boost? A pair of bold sunglasses will help you fake it till you make it.)

From all-nighters at the office to all-nighters at the club, everyone between the ages of 18 and 100 knows that anything can happen on a Thursday. The wild card of the week calls for a wild-card outfit to go with it. An oversized jacket and classic sneakers is cool and comfortable—perfect for burying your head in a project. Hide something lacy and racy underneath just in case you decide to go out after work. As long as you’re keeping your options open, you’re doing Thursday right.

Maybe you’ve got a fun dinner date lined up after work. Maybe you’re kicking off the weekend with a GNO movie date.

It’s the weekend, y’all! Release your inner too-cool-for-school girl with a vintage-inspired t-shirt and messy, don’t-care hair (because, okay yeah, maybe you skipped yoga class this morning). What shoes you reach for to complete the outfit will depend on exactly when you venture into public. 9am? Sneakers FTW. 9pm? Heels all the way. Or fire up a good book and go barefoot all the way till Sunday.
