When My Friends Need Outfit Advice, I Tell Them to Try These Looks With Jeans

I often get texts from friends asking for styling and shopping advice. It basically comes with the territory with my work as a fashion editor. And yes, I love it. One of my friends recently inquired about any easy outfit ideas I've seen from the fashion crowd that she could maybe try. Basically, when I hear the word "easy," I almost always think of something with jeans because that perfect pair brings a chic, low-key vibe to a look. So I sent her a couple of outfits from my Saved folder on Instagram that feature jeans. 

Below, you'll find the summer outfits with jeans that I sent her along with a few others I thought you might be interested in trying this season. You'll notice that the pieces that accompany the jeans in each of the looks are also easy and fall in that elevated-basics category. Oh, you'll also find inspired shopping picks for all of the ensembles in question.

Need a simple yet impossibly chic outfit idea? Consider a simple tube top with straight-leg jeans. A pair of ballet flats brings another cool and modern twist.

I always love the denim-on-denim look. The wide-leg jeans here with the addition of the belt are particularly noteworthy.

This ensemble features a unique styling trick by adding two blazers on top of each other with a tee or tank and jeans.

A ribbed knit with a sweetheart neckline is very elegant with your favorite pair of jeans.

A striped knit or jacket brings instant polish to a look.
