( While it's true that simple is best, there's also nothing wrong with adding a little bit of flair when it comes to the clothes you wear. And when we say flair, we mean trinkets such as patches, studs, pins, and even embroidery—honestly just whatever the heck you want, big or small—that could breathe more life, personality, and style on your everyday, classic pieces.

One classic item that everyone has in their closet is a good pair of denim jeans. You were probably introduced to the comfortable style early on in your childhood through your mom or dad's closet—think rugged but well-loved 501's from American clothing brand Levi's.

Add a little bit of flair to your new or old Levi's. 

Whether it's your (or mom's or dad's that you "borrowed") favorite pair of jeans or your trusty denim jacket, chances are you've got a denim piece just waiting for some flair sitting in your closet. And even bigger chances are that ever-dependable piece is from Levi's. The brand has brought back the Levi's Tailor Shop! Yup, you can take those denim staples out of your closet, drop by the customization stall, and come home with an entirely unique piece.
