Jeans are the foundation of any wardrobe. They can go from comfortable weekend wear to sexy night out attire. Although there are many styles, cuts and colors it's important to remember these Dos and Don'ts before you slip on your favorite pair:

A little distressing goes a long way: Opt for jeans that look like you have had them for five years -- not 20.

Do keep in mind that guys love jeans that show off a girls figure: Save the old, baggy jeans for when you're cleaning the house.

Don't pair over-the-top denim with over-the-top accessories. Less is always more.

Do dress up your denim: Add heels and a feminine top and you will always look chic and classy.

Do balance your volume: Tight jeans look best with blousy tops and slouchy jeans look best with fitted shirts and blouses.
