Even though denim trends keep evolving, denim will always be timeless; we just got to invent new ways to wear our denim outfits so as to stand out.

If you’re one to want to steal the show and turn heads, then you have come to the right place as this article will comb through the different ways you can wear denim and stand out from the rest. When it comes to denim, a majority of people will go back to basics, by wearing either skinny jeans paired with a blouse, tee and completing the look with heels or flats, depending on the occasion or look they’re going for. However, any fashion aficionado knows that style is all about experimenting, thinking outside the box and pretty much reinventing the wheel and setting trends. That said, here are the unique ways you can wear denim to stand out.

5. Try jeans with trendy hem lines.

Ruffled or unfinished/frayed hemlines were huge last year and transitioned to this year too. That’s definitely one way to wear denim differently. And if you can’t cop yourself, you can just DIY at home.

6. Wear a dress over your jeans.

Yes, it’s practical, stylish and trendy, especially if you get it right. While our Muslim sisters have been wearing like this for the longest time, this trend made its way into the fashion world but quickly became a fad. However, I think it’s ultra-chic if you do find a calf length button down dress. Try pairing it with your jeans and see how that look turns out.

9. Dare to be bold.

Wear jeans that feature embellishments, lace, distressed jeans, those with patchwork, etc. You could also get creative and do some DIY say by adding African print fabric on your denim be it to cover the pockets or distressed parts or as an artsy patchwork.
