How to Dress Up Your Jeans for the Holiday Season

This post is sponsored by DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans.

When the dress code allows, I almost always prefer to wear jeans to events. So, as the holiday season approaches, and I’m beginning to plan outfits, I surely intend to throw a few sophisticated denim looks into the mix.  This year, I’ve been downsizing my wardrobe to curate a small and functional closet. So, dressing up my favorite jeans instead of purchasing glitzy dresses for every occasion is a move in the right direction.

You all already know that I’m a fan of DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans (see how I style my favorite pairs here and here). Well, DENIZEN® has taken things up a notch for the holidays with a few new styles. I’m most excited about the High-Rise Ankle Straight Jeans. High-rise bottoms are so of the moment. They have the perfect silhouette to complement fall’s favorite tops, from bodysuits to blouses with statement sleeves. The right pair is easy to glam up for the holidays too. So, I’m doing just that in today’s post.

This denim glam look is anchored by DENIZEN® High-Rise Ankle Straight Jeans in the color Sunny, the darker of two available shades. I spotted them in-store in Target (also available online) one day, and I had to try them on. Once I got them on, I immediately noticed how super-stretchy they were. These jeans have a very polished and structured look, so I was pleased by the comfy fit. By the way, I’m wearing the jeans in a size 4.

I, then, fell instantly for the high-rise waist. The rise on these jeans make them perfect for tucking your favorite tops in to show off your curves. Look how perfect my statement sleeve white shirt looks when paired with these jeans.

The high-waist feature of these jeans also makes them perfect for belting. And, a belt is an ideal choice for adding a little holiday bling to denim. Who needs a sequin dress when you can just add a little bling to your favorite jeans, right?

As a shorter woman, I’m here for an ankle length pair of jeans. And, the length of this pair is just right for balancing my shorter frame while showing off my shoes. Of course, since it’s the holiday season, you can find me wearing sparkly pumps with my jeans everywhere and anywhere.

After rocking these jeans for an entire day, I can report that just like other pairs of premium denim from DENIZEN® jeans, this new style holds its shape all day long. All day long!

How do you work your wardrobe to meet the style demands of the holiday season?
