With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the season of holiday parties is also almost upon us. While go-to festive looks include plenty of sequins, sparkle, and velvet, you might find yourself in the mood to wear your favorite pair of jeans to a holiday soirée. Cue Alexa Chung.

Chung is a master of making jeans look incredibly dressy, even formal. For this Dior party at New York's Guggenheim Museum, the style star wore a pair of straight-leg, cropped jeans and layered on feminine pieces to dress them up including a pair of classic black pumps, a black lace blouse, a velvet blazer, and Dior's iconic lady bag. If you didn't stop to think about the fact that she's wearing jeans, you almost wouldn't even notice.

This season, take a cue from Chung and dress up your denim for the holiday party circuit! Keep scrolling to shop some of our favorite current jeans styles now.
