How To Jazz Up The White Shirt And Blue Jeans

You can never go wrong with the classic combination of a crisp white shirt and blue jeans. Both items are closet staples. And, when worn together? They’re sharp, sophisticated, stylish. The combination has been proven reliable and versatile. So, let’s jazz it up a bit.

What I’m wearing:

Shirt (option) | Jeans | Pumps (option) | Belt bag | Earrings

Eyes: Urban Decay Born to Run palette c/o | Lip: Urban Decay Vice lipstick (66) c/o

1. Choose a shirt with an interesting twist

All white button-downs are not made the same. I absolutely love funky sleeves, so when I saw the balloon sleeves on this shirt, it became my go-to white button-down.

2. Add of-the-moment accessories

Like it or not, the belt bag is holding on to its moment. I’m totally here for it. Adding one to the classic combination is an easy update.

3. Try different denim silhoeuttes

I favor super-high, skinny jeans. These Madewell 10″ high-rise jeans are my current favorites. But, a white button-down looks equally fly with boyfriend jeans and wide-leg styles.

4. Add colorful pumps

Shoes are a great option for adding a pop of color to a look. And, this yellow suede pair is just the right splash of color for my outfit.

5. Use makeup to change the feel of the look

When I rocked this particular white shirt and jeans combination, it was date night. So, I decided to experiment with some new goodies I received from Urban Decay to spice things up.

Y’all, the Born to Run eyeshadow palette has every color I could ever imagine needing, from nudes to brights and mattes to shimmers.

And, why didn’t you all tell me that Urban Decay’s eye pencils were so creamy and bright?

Anyway, I decided to switch things up a bit by creating a dramatic green eye. I finished the look with Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Rich Mauve-Nude
