As I mentioned in my previous post, this year I am working on refining my style. This also means finding what pieces are missing from my closet. Part of feeling like you have nothing to wear is because you’re missing key items that make it easy to get dressed for any occasion.
There are basics that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Things like classic jeans and a great t-shirt should be staples in any wardrobe. Then in addition to the classic basics, unique and elevated pieces add a personal touch to a plain look.
One of my favorite new elevated basics is a pair of coated jeans. Coated denim gives the sleek look of leather with the comfort and price point of a regular pair of jeans. The best part is they instantly dress up even the most basic of looks. Below I am sharing coated jeans styling tips for 4 different occasions.
How to Style Coated Jeans 4 Ways
How to Style Coated Jeans for a Dressy Casual Event
For dressy casual events, a pair of coated jeans elevates the overall look from basic to chic. A pair with fun details like ruched legs or split hems adds a fashionable touch to the look. Style with a statement top and keep the accessories simple.
How to Style Coated Jeans for Work
Swap out your basic work slacks for a pair of black coated jeans. A slightly flared leg gives a more professional look than a skinny leg style. Pair with a camel-colored blazer for an even more chic office look.
How to Style Coated Jeans for Date Night
A sleek fitted pair of coated jeans are perfect for date night. Wear them with a silk cami for a nice texture combining look. Finish the look with your favorite jewelry, a mini bag, and some sexy heels.
How to Style Coated Jeans Casually
Coated jeans bring a twist to a double denim look. Since they don’t look like typical jeans, they pair perfectly with a classic denim shirt (without the texas tuxedo vibes). Add a pair of fun sneakers and a tote bag! This look is perfect for wherever the day may take you.
