Oversize blazers: From check to tweed and plaid, an oversize blazer pairs well with a pair of relaxed jeans. You can wear it as a casual style or pair it with a long-sleeved turtleneck for more of a layered ensemble.

Printed sweaters: Instead of pairing a tonal sweater with your jeans, look for something printed. It can be an instant way to feel fashion-forward without having to think too much about adding layers.
