In earlier days, denim might have been reserved for casual Fridays at the office. But in modern times, the fall staple has reinvented itself as a refined, tailored option fit for any day of the week. From a sleek moto jacket to slim-fitting jeans, this season’s most stylish denim looks can be worn both in the boardroom and after hours.
BACK TO BASICS
(shown above) Form fitting, ankle-length jeans become office-worthy when paired with a classic oxford button-down and sophisticated wool blazer. The suede and metallic hexagon heels act as the finishing touch.
