dressing up denim

The cold, snow and freezing wind has made me much more likely to wear jeans to school lately, but I've been playing with small ways to keep casual outfits interesting. A statement jewelry piece is a easy one, like this bright necklace from Charlotte Russe that I bought for $6. Under a denim color and a gray sweater, it stands out just enough to keep an edge to the ensemble. Just one more way to keep me from shopping!

What are your cheap tricks to spice up a casual outfit?

Love that necklace! I usually do the same as you - bold necklaces and chunky rings to spice up a casual outfit :)

I love this. It reminds me of Spike the Punch jewelry. They always have amazing ideas for using jewelry to dress up an outfit.
