I've finally made my way out of sweatpants (okay, and my bed) and am finally taking out my beloved pairs of jeans that were collecting dust all summer. While I may be beginning to taking a step back into my old habits of dressing, I still want to opt for comfortable basics that also add an element of put-together style to my simple denim. As much as I'd love to pull out a show-stopping look on the regular, nothing beats a good top and jeans combo, especially for fall.
Interested in the items I'll be leaning towards wearing? I rounded up next-level basics from our Who What Wear Collection that are not only affordable but will give you a 10/10 outfit in under five minutes. These will act as building blocks for your weekly outfits all while keeping you fashion-forward. From leather tops to fall-ready shackets, you'll find the elevated basics you'll actually want to wear with your jeans right now. To shop them all for yourself as well as see some of them in action along the way, just keep scrolling.
1. Plaid Blazer
A non-boring blazer pairs so well with a pair of relaxed jeans. You can either wear it L.A. girl style like Alyssa or pair it with a long-sleeved turtleneck for more of a layered fall ensemble.
2. Printed Sweater
Instead of pairing a tonal sweater with your jeans, look for something printed. It's an instant way to feel fashion-forward without having to think too much about adding layers.
Not only will this keep you cozy, but the shirt/jacket combo immediately makes your outfit more interesting. If you're feeling a little more daring, opt for a print or bold color.
4. Puffer Jacket
As the temperatures begin to drop, a puffer jacket pretty much becomes a closet essential, because nobody wants to be freezing. Fret not because we've found cute ones that'll do double duty—keep you warm and chic.
5. Leather Top
Leather is a classic fabric that instantly makes you look edgier and cooler without even trying. This puff-sleeved top is the perfect trendy staple that pairs easily with your favorite pair of jeans.
