The #1 Top to Wear With Jeans This Summer

As a big, big jeans girl, there’s nothing I love more than a top trend that pairs ever-so-perfectly with my favorite type of bottom. As you probably already guessed, such is the topic of today’s post. While it’s nothing new, the tie-front top seems to be peaking in popularity right now, just in time to form my (and seemingly many other fashion girls’) summer uniform. Of course, while my personal favorite way to wear it is with denim, if you’re more into trousers or shorts, I’m pretty confident you’ll love it too.

And whether it’s a super-short, bra-like version or a more approachable long-sleeve style, there are not only countless styles available, but there is seemingly something for every budget too. To see what I mean, plus to get some serious summer outfit inspiration, simply continue on below.

If you’re less of a jeans girl and more of a rainbow-striped pants person, here’s proof that you can still hop on board with this top trend.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
