6 Substitutes For Your Blue Jeans
AskBottoms_sm

We obviously love our blue jeans just as much as the next fashion-forward set of gals, but sometimes they can look, how shall we say, underwhelming. If you too find yourself bored of your baby blues, then let us reassure you of a few new options. Seen below, a peplum skirt, metallic shorts or even, scuba pants, offer a sleek, unexpected breath of fresh air to their wearer. But don’t let their statement-making stance fool you into thinking that they can’t be worn just as easily as your go-to denim duds—the trick with these beauties is to treat them like an everyday separate. Style them like you would your jeans, dressed up or downplayed, and you’ll be a modern marvel, indeed.

P.S. A sale sent from the style gods, the Barneys New York Warehouse Sale is back and better than ever! Shop it now for up to 75% off designer apparel, accessories and more!
