There are a variety of fashion pieces that won’t go out of style, and jeans are one of them. Denim is a mainstay because of its ease, cool factor, and the fact that it's universally flattering thanks to the endless number of styles available. In fact, you can wear jeans with just about anything. However, my favorite things to wear with jeans are all stylish simple items.
These days, I am all for looks that take little to no effort, and as we enter into spring, I am keeping this in mind. While outfit planning for the new season, it is clear that jeans will be on heavy rotation, and I’ve begun to narrow down my top simple picks to help round out each look. The great thing is that just because a piece is simple, it doesn’t mean it’s all about basics. Trendy pieces, especially those of the minimalistic variety, fit the bill perfectly as well.
Ahead, I pinpoint five of the simple items I’ll be wearing with jeans for spring. From tops to shoes to outerwear, I rounded up stylish picks for each item to shop now.
1. Fisherman Sandals
Fisherman sandals are bound to be a big trend this season. While I love the fashion-forward sandals styled with a variety of pieces, there is nothing like wearing a great pair with jeans.
2. Tucked-In Tees
One thing is for sure—you'll never be able to convince me that a tee and jeans isn't a classic look. The combo never fails and can easily be dressed up or down. The key is finding the right fit. Thankfully, the options are endless.
3. Draped Sweaters
I was excited to see the resurgence of draped sweaters over the shoulders of my favorite style muses. It's such an effortless way to make any outfit look more elevated.
4. Classic Trench Coats
If there is one piece that will instantly add a polished feel to any outfit, it is hands down a trench coat. Throw one on over jeans and, voilà—you have an immediate confidence boost.
5. Oversize Button-Down Shirts
Button-down shirts and jeans are a match made in fashion heaven. The simple piece makes a big impact in that it makes you feel put together with little effort. Another plus? There are endless designs and colors for every personal style.
