When you start to think about it, jeans have come a long way since the denim staple first made its appearance among the closets of America in the 1800s. What once was reserved for the likes of farmers and the counter culture has now become an essential piece every fashion lover should have in his or her wardrobe. Sure, they make for a classic go-to on a day-to-day basis, but a pair of jeans can also create an effortlessly cool going-out outfit, too. Not to say that your more formal looks don’t have a time and a place for those evenings out on the town, but when you’re simply planning on heading to a laid-back happy hour with your crew or a last-minute date night with your S.O., pulling on a pair of your favorite jeans can give you a complete outfit in a mere matter of seconds.
