  • add lace and stitch or iron on colorful appliques, maybe add studs to accent the direction you want to emphasize--long lines for length, or studs around the pockets to emphasize hips

  • If you can sew you could turn it into a cute purse- lol I know how you feel - jean skirts are not all created equally trendy :) Sometimes its just better to start anew.

  • There are so many jean skirts at the thrift shops - toss the old one and pick up a new one that you love!

  • Sew patches of a cute fabric on it, iron something onto it, take fabric paint and stencils and stencil something you like on it (flowers, a flag, hearts, etc.), or just kind of paint splatter it with fabric paint, put studs on it, put a patch of something you like on it (like the kind you can put on jackets, purses, etc.), sew a strip of lace under the bottom of it so it peeks out, wear a really thin, slightly longer skirt under it so the fabric from it peeks out of the bottom, it really depends on your style and what you like.
