The Shoes and Tops That Look the Best With Non-Skinny Jeans

Despite their polarising nature, skinny jeans are basically a classic cut at this point. But in terms of the more forward silhouettes right now, relaxed straight-leg jeans reign supreme. These non-skinny jeans are a fashion-person favourite and bring a modern feel to any look, alongside boyfriend and mom silhouettes. These looser fits are also incredibly versatile.

In reality, you could pair so many of your go-to pieces with relaxed denim. But after scrolling through the feeds of some of our favourite fashion follows, we found a few key shoes and tops that style setters are opting for. 

Below, we're showcasing the items that look great with non-skinny jeans. You'll notice everything from cool oversize shirting styles and trainers to romantic tops and strappy heels. Keep scrolling to see and shop the chic combinations.
