These days, jeans are becoming a basic building block of any wardrobe. Almost everywhere around the globe, you see people wearing jeans. From high-waist pants, capris, and cargos to tattered jeans and cigarette pants, the variety seems infinite. Jeans are becoming such a moth-eaten that they're coming to close quarters with being a total faux-pas. But how do you squeeze out a savvy style for your jeans without becoming too distinct?
The answer: ACCESSORIZE! Exude style savvy with your jeans using the following tips:
- For low-waist jeans, use navel diamonds and gems to accentuate a cute belly-button. You can also wrap silver chain-belts around your tummy, to shimmer while you dance “the bump". For a totally 70's look, add on colorful bangles and large hoop rings.
- For capris, wear anklets - either a slim gold chain to accent a trim ankle or ethnic beads for a “beach-babe" look. You can also add hip body bags for a sportier look.
- For cargos, those handy Swiss knives bring action to your jeans, as do large backpacks. You can also wear Buddha beads which bring luck for extreme adventures.
- For high-waist pants, use large dark-colored snakeskin belts to hide the height of the waist. Never use bright colored or diamond belts - it'll grab all the attention.
- For tattered or ripped jeans, wear kerchief belts for a handy-man look. You can also position a kerchief in your backpocket to call attention to a sexy bottom. Don't use overpolished accessories with the grunge look such as diamond or leather belts - it's an extreme combination.
- For loose or baggy jeans, more oversized chains clipped from the belt-line to your pocket give you a “gangsta" look. So do vintage pocket-watches, which bring out the “hip-hop" style. And if you're in for the “chicano" look, wear plaids as well as bandanas or hairnets.
- For cigarette pants, use “l-mac" (colored-transparent plastic) belts for a “be-bop" look. Gold or silver jewelry and fancy anklets can also dress up your jeans. never wear anything ethnic - it ruins the polished style.
