5 Simple Items I'm Wearing on Repeat With Jeans This Spring

There is a variety of fashion pieces that won’t go out of style, and jeans are one of them. Denim is a mainstay because of its ease, cool factor, and the fact that it's universally flattering thanks to the endless number of styles available. In fact, you can wear jeans with just about anything. However, my favourite things to wear with jeans are all stylish, simple items.

These days, I am all for looks that take little to no effort, and as we look towards spring, I am keeping this in mind. While outfit-planning for the new season, I knew jeans would be on heavy rotation, and I’ve begun to narrow down my top simple picks to help round out each look. The great thing is that just because a piece is simple, it doesn’t mean it’s all about basics. Trendy pieces, especially those of the minimalistic variety, fit the bill perfectly as well.
