Though jeans are known to be the most casual pieces, they can still look chic and sophisticated in lighter shades of white. White denim jeans especially in boot cut and skinny fit can be a great comfortable alternative to your sleek dress pants. Just wear anything chic on your top like a chiffon blouse, knitted crop top, or even floral print blouse for a chic statement. On the other hand, washed blue jeans are the trendier and more casual lighter shade of jeans you may opt for a laidback vibe. Feel free to pick one with distressed features to make them look cooler. Just remember that lighter shades of jeans can make you look bigger especially if you’re bottom-heavy, so try to avoid them.

If you’re bottom-heavy and aiming for a chic style, darker shades of denim jeans in black can be perfect for you. The darker the color, the more slimming the jeans, and makes you look taller. Black skinny jeans can be a great alternative for body hugging leggings that are versatile and elegant with chic tops looking more formal and classier. On the other hand, if you wish for a casual vibe, opt for dark blue jeans or indigo that goes best with button down shirts, flirty off shoulder tops, and knitted blazers. Skinny jeans, boot-cut jeans, and flared jeans are considered to be dressier than straight leg and boyfriend fits.

The medium shades of jeans go with almost everything but have the more casual vibe. If you’re planning to wear the denim-on-denim look, just be sure to contrast the different shades to avoid looking retro or outdated. These casual shades in distressed styles look best when worn with casual tees, concert tees, striped tops, plain tees, and even chic tops to create a casual chic vibe. You may even opt for patchwork styles, frayed styles, cropped styles, and even studded styles to make your jeans look more expressive and artistic.

To add some fun and colors to your casual style, opt for colored version of jeans in lively colors like pale pink, light blue, canary yellow, hot pink, cobalt blue, purple, tangerine, mint green, turquoise, or even coral to making it unique and very trendy. This way, you’re making your casual street style colorful and artistic without looking overdone. When choosing the best shade of jeans for you, always stick to your favorite color, or the colors that suit your personality.
