I really don’t want to think about the effort I’d have to put into getting dressed if it weren’t for jeans. They’re the piece I grab when I’m in a hurry, when my friends and I decide to meet up last minute or I when just don’t have the mental capacity to pull together a look. However, when dresses become an integral part of my aesthetic, I found myself leaning less on my jeans for the daytime. Instead, they became my preferred nighttime attire.
Unlike party season—when I’m always keen to embrace embellishment and feathers—there’s something so effortlessly cool about more laid-back going-out looks during the autumn, and jeans will help you nail that assignment. Keen to see how influencer types style their evening outfits with jeans, I went on a social media deep-dive with the aim of unearthing ensembles I could copy and paste for my next night on the tiles.
