10. Over-the-knee boots if you dare.
Over-the-knee boots make a statement so they’re not for the demure. Wearing them with jeans is sexy without looking too vampy.

11. Mix hard and soft by pairing denim and lace.
A pretty lace top can add girly softness in white or sexy edge in black. Or try a vivid color like red or hot pink for a funky ‘80s feel.

12. Don’t skimp on the bling.
Layer two or three necklaces in similar colors, but different lengths and textures, over a simple tee and pair of sleek, trouser jeans for a laid-back, yet elegant, evening look.
