15-Second Style Series: How To Take Dressed Up Denim From Desk To Date Night

Because we like to keep a good thing going, we decided to extrend our celebration of dressed up denim to our 15-second style series on Instagram. Dressing up your jeans for work is one thing, but if you’re dashing to a date at 5pm, you’ll want to switch it up a bit. Aside from brushing your hair, swishing around some mouthwash, and putting on lipstick, consider swapping your flats for heels, taking off your structured jacket and showing a little arm, and grabbing an easy wristlet. (Leave the big tote at work — you can get it tomorrow!).

Desk: We started with our Curvy Super Skinny Jeans, They’re cool, confident, and hit at the ankle — a.k.a. the most versatile pair of jeans you’ll ever own. Then we added our Faux Leather Sleeve Striped Top and layered our Leva Knit Drape Front Jacket over it. Our roomy yet light quilted tote is perfect for work. Pointy cutout leather flats look polished, but keep you going all day.

Date: Switch it up for a sexier, more evening appropriate look by swapping out the bag, jacket, and flats for our Rayleigh Leather Ankle Strap Sandals and Quilted Wristlet.
