Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.
What’s the best thing about fall fashion? Experimenting with the season’s hottest colors, of course. Though deep jewel tones are always in style this time of year, I definitely already have a favorite hue that I can’t wait to try out: Oxblood. This deep, dark red hue is simultaneously cozy and vampy – and therefore perfect for fall.
This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a pair of oxblood skinny jeans for a comfy day of classes and a night out.
Oxblood Jeans: Class
For class, try out a cozy, artsy look that’s as dramatic as oxblood by pairing your jeans with a cute animal tee. (I’m dying over this baby kitty shirt!) Contrast the adorable top with a skull-print scarf to add a bit of edge. Tan ballet flats and a structured deep green satchel balance out the look while lending fall-appropriate flair. Add an artistic touch with a pair of glittery camera-shaped studs.
Oxblood Jeans: Night Out
Amp up the drama for night by pairing your skinnies with a glamorous sequined button-up tank. The polished cut of the top will help create a look that’s prim and proper, but still vampy enough for a night out. Keep your accessories simple to balance out this dramatic outfit: Classic black pumps and gold chandelier earrings will more than do the trick. Complete the ensemble with a retro-inspired cross-body bag in elegant black and ivory.
