When it comes to celebrity fashion, nothing sets apart a truly stylish star more than the way she pulls together an outfit centered around a classic pair of jeans. Because, while anyone can throw on a pair of skinny jeans and a gauzy white T-shirt, it takes real know-how—and a certain level of confidence—to create a killer denim look.

Never has that statement prevailed as strong as right now, because the humble denim jean is having somewhat of a high-fashion moment. We’re not just talking about your classic black pair either (although they are everywhere too), but faded, flared, and even ankle-baring cropped pieces.

So for some fresh ways to wear every fashion girl’s most-loved classic this season, there’s no better place to look than to celebrities such as Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Rihanna, who have a few handy styling tricks you need to know about. Keep clicking through the gallery for 11 incredible ways to style your jeans, and to shop the trend with a few of our favorite pieces you can nab online right now at Old Navy. Let’s go!

Classic skinny blue jeans work for casual Fridays at the office and weekend errand-running when you team them with a printed button-up blouse and ballet flats—just ask Australian model Miranda Kerr. Bring out a color from the print with a color-pop bag. And opt for a sculpted denim that contours to your shape to create a more slimming effect.

Next time you're running out the door with five minutes to pick an outfit, do like Kylie Jenner and tuck a classic white singlet into a midrise pair of blue jeans. Aim for a super-soft denim for a smoother feel that will keep you comfortable all day. Finish by pulling on flat ankle boots.

Look to Gigi Hadid for a lesson in modern double denim, and clash your dark jeans with a faded shirt, partially tucked in. A color-pop jacket tossed over the top ties the look together.

If anyone does high-impact denim well, it's Rihanna. Patched jeans are huge right now, so you can either DIY with iron-on appliqué, or buy an already-embroidered pair. We love how RiRi made the loud pattern on her boyfriend jeans pop with matching flats.
