I'm French-Canadian With California Style—These Are the Items I Wear With Jeans

French-Canadian lifestyle blogger Vanessa Oblinsky recently shared the seven items she swears by to master her chic style. For reference, she grew up in Montreal, Quebec, and now lives in San Diego, California with her family, so her fashion sense is a combination of an effortless sartorial sensibility and a pared-down Southern California vibe. So naturally, we were intrigued at garnering even more style advice from her.

Given that Oblinsky considers denim to be a staple in her wardrobe, we were specifically interested in the pieces she tends to pair with her favorite jean cuts to look elevated and fashion-forward.

With that in mind, keep scrolling to uncover the pieces she routinely wears with her go-to denim cuts, including straight-leg styles, cut-off shorts, and so on. You'll also find inspired shopping picks for each—including a smattering of jean silhouettes—that could be of interest.

1. Statement Blouse

"A printed or unique top is perfect with jeans for an elevated, casual chic look."

2. Blazer

"A blazer and jeans or denim shorts make the most versatile combo!"

3. T-Shirt

"Ultimate classic but still a favorite."

4. Neutral Top

This is on the other end of the spectrum from the statement blouse. "Such a chic and effortless pairing," says Oblinsky.

5. Cami/Bodysuit

"A must-have basic with jeans. Perfect for summer." 

6. Lightweight Sweater

"It's a cozy and easy option that can easily be dressed up or down."

7. Denim/Chambray Shirt

"Love a good Canadian Tuxedo. Can't go wrong with denim on denim."
