With the change in the weather, it’s finally time to put your trusty denim jeans back into daily rotation. And from runway-approved oversized blazers to shackets, sweater vests, shearling jackets and blouses with statement collars, you can opt for comfortable basic tops that can add an element of put-together style to simple denim jeans this autumn.
Try refreshing your wardrobe with these noteworthy and affordable trends to wear with jeans this season.
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.
Belted jackets: This is an easy styling trick you can achieve with items you already own. Wearing a belt cinched at the waist will add definition to a jacket or blazer and make any pair of jeans instantly look more polished.
Shackets: This shirt/jacket combo will keep you cosy while making your outfit more interesting. For a more daring look, opt for a print or bold colour.
Knit sweater vests
Knit sweater vests: Whether in a neutral hue or graphic print, the preppy knit is back this season.
Statement collars: Large, vintage-inspired collars on blouses and sweaters are trending this season and can add a little life to basic jeans.
Shearling jackets: Pair high-waisted wide-leg jeans with a cool shearling or Sherpa lined jacket to add a 70s style to your look this season.
