If you’re like me, the easier it is in choosing clothing options, the better. I’ll admit I’m sometimes really lazy when it comes to picking out outfits for certain days or events. Who doesn’t want to look put together with so little effort – that’s where transitional clothing comes into play. Jeans, the main staple of anyone’s wardrobe, is the latest ingredient on putting a new spin in day to night dressing. Now that jeans are being elevated with embellishments, sequins, lace, metallic, velvet and embroidery, they can easily take you from running errands, to out to dinner, or even shopping, to party hopping. So I give to you, 10 Chic Jeans that Easily Transition from Day to Night. Anthropologie and Free People have some great options for your chic jean multi-event wardrobe, which I also include top and accessory picks as well. For an easy guide to keep in mind when styling your chic jean looks, for day think of sweatshirts, white buttondowns, sneakers or flats. For night metallic, velvet or silk tops or jackets paired with velvet or metallic heels or booties. For an easy visual, I included a boutique of my day to night item picks under the info of each jean. So what jeans transition easily from day to night?
