The humble jeans' versatility has no foreseeable end. We've been wearing countless permeations of it since we were tiny tots in OshKosh overalls, but have you ever once considered wearing denim to an evening fete? It's totally doable! Below, three ways to live the nightlife in fashion's favorite rough-and-tumble fabric.
Dress up an otherwise everyday pair of jeans by piling on the shine. Drape a glitzy bead-fringed capelet over a heavily-embellished tulle pullover, then finish it off with jeweled flats.

The key to clashing textures—in this case, denim vs. silk—is to streamline your hues. An oversized white denim jacket slung over an exquisitely simple ivory silk slip and minimalist stiletto sandals speaks refined elegance.

Oh, the places a denim shift can take you. Layer your minidress over a feathered skirt and let the latter's hem peek out for some coquettish flair. The pièce de résistance: a pair of fully-glittered block-heeled platforms.
