If there was one thing in my wardrobe I simply could not live without, it would have to be a good pair of jeans. Dare I say, denim is one of the most, if not the most, versatile article of clothing you could ever own. If you have yet to find that perfect pair of jeans that hugs you in all the right places and almost seems like a second skin, you need to go out and find that special pair immediately!

Although, I can make your life much easier by pointing you in the right direction. I recently received a pair of dark wash skinny jeans from Banana Republic. As soon as I slipped them on, I knew these were “the one.” Not only are they the perfect wash and fit, but they are incredibly comfortable and flexible. Plus, I can think of so many looks from the top of my head that are centered around this one pair of pants. In order to demonstrate just how versatile these Banana Republic jeans are, I put together two different looks that show you how to style a pair of jeans two ways.
I wanted to keep this look clean and simple, so I went with this gorgeous tie-sleeve half trench coat layered on top of a white button up. Not only is it this coat the perfect spring outerwear piece, but it looks amazing contrasted against the dark wash of the denim. I stuck to minimal accessories, including a structured bag and a pair of classic black heels. This look is great for when I need to run to multiple meetings in one day!
To switch it up for a date-appropriate, dinner and drinks look, I swapped out the trench for a silk blouse. This time, the deep blue shirt flows seamlessly into the dark wash of the denim jeans for an almost monochromatic effect. I also opted for a small clutch bag and a pair of strappy heels that bring the whole nighttime look together.
