I consider myself a basics kind of girl. My usual uniform is a pair of jeans and a t-shirt to which I add a pair of heels to complete the outfit. It’s not about reinventing the wheel, just enhancing it and adding your own touch. When it comes to jeans, I have been known to stick to skinny jeans just because I think they complement my frame better. To this pair, I added my own DIY distressing. Using tips from my trusty pal Pinterest, I created distressed rips with a pair of scissors and tweezers, washed, tumbled dried, and presto! The most important thing when doing your own distressing is to wear the jeans first and mark where you want the holes to go before you actually cut them (yes I learned the hard way). And when in doubt, cut knee holes ABOVE the knee rather than cutting them too low below the knees (awkward).
The great thing about skinny jeans is that when you simply add a pair of heels they instantly turn the outfit up a notch or ten (never underestimate the power of a good heel). Whether you wear a plain v-neck tee, or something a little fancier like a sweater, nothing adds more pop to an outfit than a pair of high heels. And of course, always have a pair of flip flops in the car in case you have to make a mad dash somewhere. This outfit is so versatile because whether it is worn with heels or flip flops it works either way.
