Known for her off-duty denim looks and ability to make any outfit go viral, Jennie’s style approach to the wardrobe staple has consistently proved that her fashion sense is impeccable. Given that she has also fronted for American denim brand Calvin Klein several times, it is even more fitting that she is the fashion icon of this generation to look up to for inspo to level up your denim game. 


Stuck in a style rut? From ‘90s straight-leg pairs to classic high-waisted jeans, read on for 7 fresh new ways to wear classic denim, inspired by none other than Jennie from BLACKPINK.

#1 Laid-back Y2K vibes with low-rise straight jeans

Low-rise straight jeans are back, but don’t panic - it’s nothing like the ones Paris Hilton and Britney Spears wore in the ‘00s. This 2022 version features a baggier silhouette and is typically worn lower on the hips or around the mid-waist, giving it a comfier and slouchier look. Like Jennie, you can pair it with an oversized T-shirt for maximum casual vibes or a cropped top for something more Y2K-style. 

#2 Smart casual with denim on denim

Some say that double denim is a fashion crime, but Jennie indicates otherwise. The denim on denim look is forever known to be tricky to style, but if paired perfectly, the final look can be trendy and smart. For something bold, style the same wash of denim together but mix it around with slim or loose silhouettes to make them complement each other. Otherwise, match different colours, such as black with indigo blue, for something safe. 


#3 Dress up or down with printed jeans

Printed denim is your go-to if you love something that’s bright and loud. Not only does it add personality to your look, it also boosts the simplest of outfits. Whether it’s tie-dye, graphic prints or swirly patterns, printed jeans can be dressed up and down, especially when matched with the right top and accessories - think a plain T-shirt topped with a faux leather jacket, accompanied with layered necklaces and rings.

#4 Embrace your curves with high-waisted jeans

Regardless of whether it’s a skinny fit or baggy one, every girl needs a pair of high-waisted jeans in her closet - and with good reason. This cut of denim embraces the curves, creates the illusion of a thinner waist, and hides any tummy bulges perfectly! Replicate Jennie's looks by pairing this with casual cropped shirts and sliders, or with a tucked-in slim-fitting top. 

#5 Elegant and dressy with dark jeans

Unlike lighter washes of denim, darker shades such as indigo blue and charcoal black exude a more formal appearance, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to look boring! Style these darker jeans with a satin or cropped top like Jennie, coupled with a few statement accessories, and you’ll instantly look polished and elegant.

#6 Rugged vibes with boyfriend jeans

Save this for those days when you want to look cool and not have to deal with heels. Like Jennie, you can pair your stone-washed or darker tone straight-leg or boyfriend jeans with accessories or tops that have a more rugged and masculine vibe, such as a chunky pair of Dr Martens boots, beanies, oversized sweaters and a chequered jacket. 

#7 ‘70s-inspired with bootcut jeans

There are so many reasons to love bootcut jeans, also known as bell bottoms! Firstly, it elongates your figure, making you appear slimmer and taller. And secondly, the flare at the ankles helps to make your legs look leaner. You can also dress it down and style it with sneakers, though it would be good to wear something fitted on top, given that the jeans flare out at the bottom.
