Dress Up Your Jeans - Seattle Mens Fashion Blog

Dark wash jeans are one of the most versatile items of clothing you can own.  They can easily go from ultra casual to dressy with just a few simple changes.  I'm all about being comfortable, and jeans are definitely one of my go-to items when I want to step up from casual.
Here's a few examples of how I dress up a pair of jeans.

Firstly, shoes.  I'll show three different shoe options from casual slip-on to dressy double monk strap.

For a casual look with a t-shirt, ditch the athletic shoes and go for a pair of simple slip-on driving mocks or loafers.  From there, if you want to step it up slightly more, go with a fitted v-neck sweater over a crew-neck t-shirt.
Next, we're switching out the tan shoes for darker brown brogues.  Go for a fitted button-up with a casual pattern.  If you're heading out, throw on a navy sport jacket.  If you want to wear a tie without coming off too stuffy, go with a sweater.  It's a great look for fall when the weather cools off.  You can put the jacket back on for a nice, sharp look.
Finally, we're going dressy.  We've gone for a pair of black dress shoes and a solid white dress shirt.  Going with the same jacket, you can see how the crisp white shirt and black shoes elevates things a bit.  Throw on a tie and you're in business.  You're still rocking jeans so you still have the casual attitude without being too over-dressed.
