We’re pros at rationalizing denim for almost every occasion, which is why we’re forever coming up with fresh ways to rock it. Cool blue-jean looks that exude polish and charm are covetable whether you’re a girly-girl, a minimalist or a bit edgy. Working with a straight-leg silhouette (thanks to its classic versatility) as a starting point, we’ve styled five chic transitional outfits to try now and keep in rotation for the season ahead.
