Give Denim Its Due! 10 Chic Zara Jeans We'd Wear Long After Errands Are Over

If you ask us, jeans get a bad rap. Their rep as the lazy-girl uniform of choice belies the fact that denim can be dressy, too. Jeans have come a long way — add some gold piping here, a cute cropped leg there, and interesting textures galore, and voilà — suddenly your denim is as sophisticated as any skirt and flirty as any frock.
Not convinced? We went to Zara, our perennial source for affordable basics, and found a bevy of blue jeans you'll be proud to rock to dinner, drinks, on a date — pretty much anywhere you want to look fly (in that not-trying-too-hard way, of course).
Click through our dream-denim buys, and be convinced — cute cranberry skinnies, a silk blouse, and some killer stilettos are as chic as any party dress.
