“A chic white jacket lends polish to off-duty denim.”
“Wear distressed jeans with heels for evening-event cool.”
“Stylish and versatile, heeled ankle boots can be worn day to night.”

We’ve seen something of a role reversal lately: street style is now all about dramatic, eye-catching fashion, while the new secret to dressing up is, conversely, to dress down. Hi/low fashion, 24/7 style – call it what you will, this sensibility has taken over when it comes to what fashion editors and influencers really wear. It wasn’t just that denim made an appearance on fashion month’s front rows, it was the way it was styled: think Emmanuelle Alt in skinny jeans with a leather blazer and Gianvito Rossi pumps, or Joan Smalls pairing Nike trainers with a skirt.
Of course, there are key pieces that will help you navigate this tricky balance, but the real game changer is a SS14 jacket. Hilary Rhoda models the full spectrum of new styles from page 8, while in The
Interview, actress Juno Temple shows how to give the piece an irreverent twist. Finally, make sure your makeup is in tune with your hi/low look with our 5-minute updates in this week’s Beauty section. The day-to-night style conundrum has been solved.
