Pairing your jeans can be an unexpectedly difficult art, and there are few pieces more essential to your wardrobe than your most beloved pair of jeans. Trust me; I’m not here to argue with that. Rather than pulling you away from your safety jeans, I’m merely suggesting you update the supporting pieces in your wardrobe to make your denim feel refreshed for the New Year. Crisp new basics are always a good idea, and these 2023 trends are worthy investments for next year and beyond. 

Although rooted in basics, these trends are unarguably upcoming and exciting for the year ahead—the runways are evidence enough. Leading fashion houses such as Bottega Veneta, Courrèges, and Khaite sent refined yet fundamentally simple pieces down the runway, from tank tops to suiting vests. These pieces make easy toppers for your throw-together denim-based looks. 

Below, I’ve shopped out the most coveted of these go-to 2023 trends and the denim to match.

All things leather are trending, and a tailored blazer is as elevated as it is modern. It will pair effortlessly with your treasured denim but also with your everyday trousers and your little black dress. 

This fall and winter have seen the retro-inspired shearling-trim jacket return. The effortless vintage nature of this style sees it through multiple upcoming winters.

Tanks

The classic tank is a must-add to every closet. Whether under a statement jacket or simply paired with traditional denim, the quintessential tank has established its worth and longevity in every closet this upcoming year.

Vests

The resurgence of the early aughts gave us the return of the menswear-inspired vest. For warm weather, pair alone with jeans, and for the colder months, wear under a blazer or over a turtleneck.

The textbook item to pair with jeans is (expectedly) a T-shirt. But the baby tee is a vintage take on the classic outfit, and it still exudes effortless trendiness.
