There is no doubt that denim is one of the most versatile pieces in every girl's wardrobe. You can rock it with a frilly top and dressy heels for a snazzy look, or pair it with a casual tee for a laidback OOTD. Plus, regardless of whether your style is edgy, feminine, or even boho, you can be sure that denim will never fail to add an instant dose of cool to your look, making it the perfect go-to to complete your cool girl uniform!

Because denim has always been easy to rock and match with pieces you already own, we're showing you five easy ways on how you can up the ante of your denim game just like how the cool girls do. So scroll down and end 2016 with a bang with these cool girl looks you don't want to miss.

A white tee-and-jeans combo is a no-brainer, already foolproof style equation. But you can give this style uniform a major fashion upgrade by creating a messy cuff to show off your preppy socks and sporty kicks. This easy trick will give your OOTD character and attitude in a jiffy.


Make your trusty denim cut-offs pop by pairing it with a casual tee with pops of vibrant reds. While your clothes are important to achieve the cool girl style, your accessories are just as important, too! Create a high neckline illusion by wearing a choker that has the same color as your shirt's neckline and pile on the accessories to end your look for the day.

Create an effortlessly cool OOTD by turning your oversized graphic tee into a dress. Instead of wearing your denim jacket the classic way, take your denim jacket off and rock it like you would wear a light shawl. This easy jacket styling trick will up your denim game in a snap! 

Nothing spells cool denim more than a pair of frayed jeans. Wear yours with a slinky cami and edgy boots for a nice contrast and cap the look off with a printed scarf to make your OOTD stand out from the crowd.


It's no secret that you can wear anything with denim, but no style pairing can ever top the edge and the cool vibe of a leather-and-denim combo! Take the road less traveled and wear your ultra cool patch jeans with an oversized leather jacket. Opt for a pair of shoes that are just as bold as your style equation to bring the house down in style.
