In case you haven't noticed, I live in my jeans. This may be typical of most Americans. or really, most humans with access to jeans (except for le boyfriend, Kyle, whose ambivalence towards the pant style is one of the few subjects on which we disagree). So when it comes to squeezing into a dress and heels for a nice dinner or night out at the bars, I typically leave that process for special occasions and instead try to find ways to dress up my everyday denim. But sometimes, the best solution is the most obvious. I start with a slightly more dressy pair of high-waisted flares, a classic style that is always figure flattering. A silk cami with lace detail looks effortlessly sexy and evening appropriate, especially when layered with a bunch of delicate necklaces and a high-wattage choker. Throw on my go-to black pumps and a sleek black coat, and this simple outfit is a serious no-brainer.
