Work It
No doubt, jeans are off-duty all-stars. But when they’re in a skinny silhouette and paired with pumps and a peplum top, they can rock the 9-to-5 like nobody’s business. The key is to keep it simple: wear neutrals and stick to minimal jewelry. (Oh, and a designer bag helps.)

Chill Out
Brunch. Errands. Hanging out on the couch. Skinny jeans are made for weekends, no matter the season. But since it’s almost fall, add a chunky knit and suede booties for an outfit that looks better than New England’s best foliage.

Rock On
When clubs and concerts call, there’s no better way to answer than in a pair of super-skinny jeans. Do your best smoky eye, throw on a leather jacket – bonus if in a bold color – and add a crossbody bag (because if you’re anything like me, you need both hands free to dance).
