When you spend your days running from class to work (and sometimes back again), it helps to have a a closet full of pieces that can pull double duty. Your worn-in hoodie and leggings combo may not work for the office, and you may not want to wear a tailored skirt set or slacks to class — but there is a happy (and very stylish) medium: the casual-cool professional aesthetic.

In partnership with Levi's®, we've put together an expert guide to modern denim pieces and trending style staples that look just as good for class as they do for work. Whether you dress up distressed jeans with a polished blazer for the office or pair an easy denim dress with some comfy heels to wear on campus, you'll be ready for anything — no running home to change required.
