Taking denim out of the day and into the night, this time with the help of my gorgeous 
friend Sara

Keeping with the theme of J Brand's latest 'Seriously Black' collection, we clearly have no 
qualms in going top-to-toe in this non-colour when dressing up our jeans for the evening.

It's all about balance and proportion when working your denim for a night out, letting it act 
as the base for more interesting and dramatic silhouettes. In this case, wide flare-sleeves
flowing strapless tops and sleek tuxedo blazers were the name of the game, all anchored by 
a sleek minimal heel and clean clutch

That, and having a coordinating partner in crime in the style stakes just sort of seals the deal. 

There is strength in numbers, after all.

Took these black skinny jeans for a spin courtesy of J BRAND to celebrate their 
new 'Seriously Black' range, with this first of two looks being all about off-duty 
denim.

Oversized outerwear, a clean white tee, sleek ankle boots and simple accessories - 
it's all about getting back to basics when it comes to denim-based daywear. 

All in classic black and white, of course.

This is how I do my denim off duty. How do you do yours?

Classic, trans-seasonal and wholly versatile, khaki is fast becoming a go-to when I am 
keen to work beyond my usual all-black uniform. While I myself usually take the tonal 
route and layer khaki on khaki in abundance, this military-esque hue works just as well 
paired with black, ivory, camel and even blue, particularly of the denim variety. 
Whatever your mood, there's sure to be a way to wear khaki for the upcoming season, 
spring/summer or fall/winter alike. 

Scroll through below to shop my exact look above plus a few extra options for the
 budget-concious.
