My wardrobe wouldn't be the same without a few trusty pairs of jeans. Those go-to cuts are true wardrobe staples for me because of their versatility. In fact, I basically wear jeans every single day and dress them up or down accordingly. While I have a few outfit formulas I turn to when wearing jeans, there are a few key pieces (tops and shoes specifically) that I'm teaming with them now and will continue to wear over the next six months and beyond. Essentially, way into 2024.

The pieces in question are all modern yet classic and feel particularly relevant (and I think will hold strong for seasons to come). Below you'll find the staples in question, complete with visual inspiration on how others also style the key items. Keep scrolling for more, along with shopping recommendations.

Style Notes: You can't go wrong with a striped sweater. A looser pick is just dreamy with jeans. I also want to call out the ballet flats here—another chic shoe style to try with jeans.

4. Blazer

Style Notes: A sweater tied around your shoulders brings instant chicness to an ensemble. I'm into a blazer with jeans (and trainers) teamed with the knit.
