Coated Denim - Perfect Jeans for Work - Jeans That Look Like Leather
Love the look of leather but not the price? Try these jeans for work and play.
O, The Oprah Magazine | From the February 2012 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine
Coated denim is not the place for neon brights—deeper colors and neutrals are more versatile. As for silhouettes, bootcut, straight-leg, and skinny styles are most flattering.
Pair coated denim with your usual work separates: a blazer, dressy blouse, or sweater set.
For evening, play up the subtle shine of the jeans by wearing them with a sparkly top and shoes.
The coating on denim jeans makes them less stretchy than the regular kind, so stay true to size when buying.
