5 Ways to DIY It... Embellished Denim

I got a really great response to the last installment of 5 Ways to DIY It and was so excited to give it a second go! And what's a girl to wear when the weather is still hot but you're itching for fall fashion? The one all-season standard, of course- jeans!

If you saw my Top 10 on Tuesday, you know I've been pretty excited about the Old Navy denim sale, so here I've got 5 different and super-easy ways to take advantage of those awesome prices and upgrade your basic denim into designer-inspired statement jeans.

Let your legs do the talking for a fraction of the price! ;)

Give them a little sparkle with some glue-on rhinestones...

For a modern minimalist take, just add some faux-leather panels with glue (or thread)...

...or use the same process on some nostalgic patches for both some edge and charm.

Or take the basic up a notch with a bright white tuxedo stripe. Just tape off and spray!
