Your jeans should be the most versatile item in your closet, but if you’re stuck in a mom jean rut, odds are your fancy nighttime blouses won’t looks as good paired with your old, broken-in, acid-washed jeans. Update your wardrobe with these three jean styles, guaranteed to work for a day of errands or a night out on the town.
A great pair of dark wash skinnies will take you a long way. Dark wash jeans look great day and night and are a great way to instantly dress up any casual look. Here, we paired these comfy, stretchy, modern skinny jeans (Jag Jeans, $64) with a cute, nautical tie top (Vince Camuto, $45) and cute-but-classy wedges (ModCloth, $35), then topped it off with a nautical necklace (PinkMascara, $33). To take the look into the night, we added a fun peplum top (Dorothy Perkins, $35), sexy red pumps (boohoo, $60) and a gorgeous nautical cuff watch (Zappos, $124). Too cute!
All about the lines
When you want to look slim, it’s all about creating lines that slim your figure and accentuate your assets. Trouser jeans like these (Nordstrom, $84) do just that. Lengthen your legs with slim tailoring and a large bottom flair, then pair with a cotton tank blouse (Ally Fashion, $12), slouchy-but-stylish sweater (Alloy Apparel, $35) and super simple patent flats (TopShop, $30). Take it into the night by revealing a bit more skin in this two-tone peplum top (Intermix Online, $79) and classic pointed toe pumps (Zara, $80).
A legging up
Legging jeans are a closet essential. They stretch, slim and look great paired with pretty much any top in your closet. We chose this ultra-comfortable pair by Jag Jeans, which are perfect for any body type (Jag Jeans, $69) and added a chic striped blouse (CiChic, $27) and on-trend combat boots (Zappos, $100). Dot your way into the night with this polka dot bodycon dress (Nasty Gal, $68), which can be subdued for a not-so-revealing look when paired with skinny jeans. Top the entire look off with figure-lengthening Mary Jane wedges (Heels, $55) and you have an easy, effortless outfit that looks like you spent the whole night getting ready.
