The innovation: wearing a dress over jeans

View photos

Wearing a dress over pants is an outfit hack that always looks innovative when done right, and Rihanna’s look here is a perfect example of how to pull it off. The slim-fitting jeans are a great canvas to start with, and they really shine underneath a sheer dress. Finish it off with transparent heels as RiRi did, and you have yourself a jean outfit that’s fit for a princess.

The innovation: leaning into one denim wash from head to toe

Doubling up on your denim isn’t exactly an earth-shattering idea, but sure enough, J.Lo managed to reinvent it. She opted for a denim jacket and jeans in a polarizing wash—acid wash—from head to toe, and the result is an innovative take on the Canadian tuxedo that makes a ‘fit as tried-and-true as skinny jeans look brand-new.

The innovation: going for long-hemmed jeans (instead of cropped pairs)

View photos

Long jeans (as opposed to cropped ones) are trending right now, and even though it’s a simple detail, it totally reinvents how to wear skinny jeans in our minds. Take a cue from Georgia Fowler’s look here, and wear them over a sleek kitten heel.
