Taking Denim From Day To Night

Denim is one of the oldest fabrics used in fashion and has found itself being in and out of trends throughout the years. 
Britney in the early 2000s, Alexa Chung during her Alex Turner days and Bella Hadid since her rise to fame have all favoured a denim look. 
And why wouldn’t they?
Whether it’s dungarees, a mini skirt or a jacket, denim can be worn all year round for every occasion. Being such a versatile item, they're great for casual days - but how do you style them for the night?
The She Selected team have put together a guide for you so you can easily take your looks from day to night with just a few simple steps (and accessories of course!). 
Keep reading for our denim styling tips. 

Choose a style that suits you 

With more styles on the rails and online, jeans are a staple in most people's wardrobes.

But which style should you choose?

The answer is simple - whichever you feel most comfortable in!

Wearing jeans doesn't have to be scary. A good way to find the best jeans for you is by trying on a range of different styles and seeing which you like the most.

Will boyfriend jeans be the one for you? Or will you stick to the beloved straight leg jeans?

Skinny jeans will forever be a favourite in the denim world. They go with everything, look great on basically everyone and can easily be styled. 

We love the YAS Yasayo Skinny Jean in Blue and Black for both day and night. 




The shape and style of jeans can instantly change up the vibe of a look. Opting for a wide-leg, statement shape creates more of a dramatic look, perfect for evening drinks. 

Can’t live without a denim jacket? You don’t have to. For every day, an oversized denim jacket can be thrown over your fave loungewear piece to give your outfit a boost without compromising on comfort. 

For night time styling, go for a cropped version to create shape and dimension while keeping you warm on those nights that go way into the early hours. 

Flared jeans are the denim trend of the moment. Wear with a basic tank and cropped leather jacket for a modern take on a model inspired look. 


Which wash is for you?

There is a long list of washes when it comes to denim jeans. Dark tones, mid-tone blue, light washes and even white denim.

There are no strict rules when it comes to denim styling. It's all about wearing the best denim for you and your style.

White denim and lighter shades are perfect for every day, but they can also be taken into the night with the right styling. Pair with structured corset tops and heels for a birthday night out, or swap the stiletto for a trainer for a casual look that's still appropriate for happy hour. 


It’s all about what you wear it with 

Denim is super low maintenance, so can be worn with pretty much everything. 

If you need something to boost your jeans and tee combo, throw on a blazer! Although a simple step, it enhances an outfit almost instantly. 

Denim jeans are the perfect night out companion. We love styling straight leg jeans with our Lavish Alice Chiffon Balloon Sleeve Open Back Top In Black Rose for a ‘business in the front, party in the back’ look.  





Is double denim back?

When was it decided that double denim wasn't cool?

We loved it back in the day and it's making its way back into the fashion world with more modern cuts and shapes to make it perfect for the 21st Century gal.

To give a nod to 70s fashion, wear flared jeans with a cut off denim jacket and pair of statement boots.

Although simple, this look can still make an impact.

More of a 90s chick? Pair mom jeans with a denim waistcoat for a look that can be dressed up and down (without looking too spice girls). 


Don’t be afraid of layers 

Don't worry, we're not bringing back the mini skirt over jeans trend.

Layering up colours and textures can refresh an outfit and create a whole new look out of your staple pieces. 

Your favourite denim dress would go perfectly with a mesh top for an evening look that adds an extra layer of interest, whilst keeping you warm at the same time. 

Pairing light denim with darker colours makes for a grungier look that works perfectly with biker style boots. 

Denim jackets are the perfect layering piece for all year round. Winter, spring, summer or fall, you can always count on one to bring your look together and never have to worry about clashing...after all, denim goes with everything.  


Last but not least…accessories 

Accessories are underrated when it comes to sprucing up an outfit. 

A simple 90s inspired bag could take your outfit from zero to hero in no time at all - even if you’re wearing your comfies!

In the summer, we love pairing a heeled strappy sandal with our dungarees (trust us). With a belt to cinch the waist and a statement shoe, you can take on the night. 

Speaking of belts…

Remember those chain belts popstars used to wear in the early 2000s? Well, they’re back and better than ever. Adding delicate accessories like a chain belt gives outfits a cutesy edge while still being on-trend. 

‘Jeans and heels’ is a classic look that is not only chic but cool too. Being such a staple look, it can be hard to personalise, but with a few of your favourite accessories, you can still incorporate trends in a simple and easy way.
