The Secret to Dressing Up Jeans…

When the dress code calls for casual, what comes to your mind first? We’re willing to bet jeans is one of the first things that you think of…

The truth is, jeans have been wrongly assigned a reputation of being TOO laidback and TOO casual. We’re here to show you how jeans can be everything from casual to chic, it’s all in knowing what to wear with your jeans!   

First things first, you need a good pair of quality jeans! Of course, you’re already in the right place for that! Mavi has something for everyone – from skinnies to relaxed fits to light wash to dark wash. We’re positive you’ll find at least one pair of jeans you love! At  Mavi, we pride ourselves in creating premium, sustainable denim that you’ll find yourself living in.

We’re all for wearing (and loving) what you already own, so as long as your denim fits well and hasn’t had too much loving (think stains and unintentional tears) then you’re all set!

“Jeans and a nice top”

Jeans and a nice top is a classic combo suitable for a wide range of events – even fancier ones! Finding the perfect top to create an elevated-jeans look may seem daunting, but it’s really not!

Wrap tops and blouses make elevating jeans really easy. A white button down top is always going to look great with a pair of jeans – add your favourite heels, accessorise with earrings and tie your hair back and you’re good to go!

Jeans and a blazer

Going from work to play couldn’t be easier with this look. We recommend a neutral blazer  and adding accessories to make the whole look pop. PRO TIP: Try belting your blazer to create a defined waist and defining your figure!

Black on Black

Forever fashionable, a black on black outfit will never fail you. We recommend keeping everything tonal but playing with texture- think black denim, with a black knit jumper. If all else fails, an all black outfit will save the day (or night!).

Statement Shoes

We love a good shoe. Dress up your jean and nice top ensemble with an eye-catching shoe! We recommend keeping your top neutral in order to let the shoe be piece de resistance.

Accessorises, Accessorises, Accessorises

It should come as no surprise that we love an accessory to dress up a jean. Virtually any accessory works: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, handbags, belts, hats – the more the merrier in our opinion!!
