Styling the Basics: The Jean

Recently, I wrote an extensive shopping guide for what to look for when buying the basics. Now, here is a crash course in how to put them together. These three looks demonstrate the power of basics: though these outfits are simple, they are sophisticated and easy to do.

1. Everyday:
Skinny jeans are the perfect everyday jean. Pair them with your white button down, riding boots, and a blazer for a casual but stylishly effective fall look. And yes, you can wear brown boots with a navy blazer: they're all neutrals!

2. Day-to-Night
Its easy to take your skinnies from day to night. Go from class to dinner with friends with an embellished top, blazer, and grown-up flats. It's comfortable enough for class, but still put together for a nice-casual dinner or night out.

3. Night:
Switch our your skinnies for a pair of trouser-style jeans ,which are also great for going out. They are a little bit dressier than skinnies, and the right pair can make your legs look miles long! With an embellished top, blazer, and classic pumps, you are easily ready for a night out!
