The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.
Take a cue from Claudia Schiffer, for example, who was spotted earlier this morning walking around her Notting Hill neighborhood in a flattering pair of flared jeans. While her crewneck sweater and button-down are both very put together, it was pairing those pieces with a dark-wash formfitting pair of denim that gave her outfit its polished look. Now imagine this same ensemble worn with a lighter, baggier pair of jeans. Not so alluring anymore, is it?
So, if you’re in the market for denim that can easily be dressed up or down, opt for a super-dark pair that fits snug to the body. Achieving sophisticated outfits time after time doesn’t have to be brain surgery–simply treat your dark jeans as you would a pair of black pants, rocking them with everything from collared shirts and feminine blouses to structured blazers and pretty tweed jackets.
Do you own dressy denim? What do you think of Claudia’s jeans?
