This is an outfit I'd wear out to dinner with my girlfriends. I love trouser jeans and this whole outfit feels classic and polished to me. I added the chunky necklace to fancy it up and add a little bit of wow factor.

Again with the rustic vibe, these shoes are a small splurge but totally worth it! They have just enough height to make you feel fancy, not to mention you'll also be able to pair them with dresses and tights. The neutral color makes versatility their middle name.
Chunky accessories are the easiest way to make it look like you put in the extra effort. If you don't want to be too bold, choosing a color like black can keep the look simple yet still dressy. But don't be afraid to have a few bright neon pieces in your jewelry box either!

Every woman knows a white blouse is a must-have — but every mom knows that kids and white blouses don't always mix well. Be careful where you wear it, but always have one in your closet ready for a dinner date with your girlfriends.
Flared trousers like this should generally have a higher waist — the style can be very slimming because it adds length to even out your proportions.
This whole look has a very rustic feel, so a simple brown belt is the perfect touch. You do have to be careful with belts, though, because they can give you a shorter appearance. But with this higher waisted trouser, everything evens out.
