I don't know what my closet would look like without denim, and I don't want to find out. I rely on jeans on a daily basis to provide the foundation for my outfits. (One look at my Instagram will show you exactly what I mean.) I'm happy to dress up jeans for a nice dinner or even wear my comfiest, stretchiest versions on a flight. If left to my own devices, I'd probably wear white tees with jeans 24/7, but I've been forcing myself to invest in special basics that make jeans look cool. And that's where this story comes in.

Below, I've rounded up my favorite staples that fashion editors have been wearing with jeans lately. Our Who What Wear Collection is chock-full of basics with a twist that are super versatile and definitely chic. Scroll down for outfit ideas aplenty and to shop my under-$250 picks.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
