Denim After Dark
Denim may be the quintessential daytime fabric, but there are lots of ways to dress it up for evening. Overalls are a big trend, but there's a fine line between fashionable and farmhand: Choose a dark or black denim in a slim fit so it has more of a jumpsuit vibe. Other options are waxed denim—which has the look of leather but not the price tag—and the always-classic black jean.

"The best thing about denim is it can go from day to night, which is essential in New York City because you never know where the day is going to take you." —Kimberly
