Do's and Don't's: A quick how-to on wearing America's favorite fashion fabric
Do aim for that easy, all-American look: crisp white tee and standard blue jeans. Done.
Do find a style of jeans that works for you and stick with it — regardless of what's "in". Any pair of jeans can be easily updated with one or two trendy pieces, be it a cool army jacket or a bright bag.
Don't ignore one simple rule every woman should know (and this means you!): When wearing denim that is white, avoid anything too tight.
Do pull off white jeans (before and after Memorial Day, thank you very much) by pairing 'em with a darker color on top. Add a colorful accessory to make your whole outfit pop.
Don't go for denim dresses with tie-dyed washes or loud details. Stick to a clean-cut silhouette that will always be chic.
Don't let your denim dress you down: Had this girl traded her ratty skirt and fuchsia leggings for a crisp pair of cropped jeans, she'd be rocking a chic stripes-and-jeans combo.
Don't make a mini even mini-er by pairing with heels. (If you do opt for the short styles, pair them with flats to counterbalance the hem.)
Do try a fitted denim pencil skirt. It's just as sexy as a miniskirt but in a polished, uptown kind of way
Do add a fitted blazer to any ol' pair of jeans for an instantly pulled-together look.
Don't cover yourself head-to-toe with shredded holes. (What's OK? One — maybe two, tops — little funky tears on your favorite pairs of jeans.)
