Even in Summer, You Just Can't Beat Jeans and a Nice Top

·3-min read

There's one outfit that people of every fashion disposition have come to rely on. It's ageless, always looks effortless, and will serve you well for a multitude of occasions. The headline already gave it away, but we are, of course, talking about jeans and nice tops. However, this combination needn't be reserved for the cooler months. In fact, a host of our favourite influencers have given the ensemble a warm-weather overhaul by pairing tops typically worn in the summertime with their favourite year-round jeans.

Seeing as we live in Britain, we reckon this is a sensible outfit to wear on the days when the weather forecast is changeable at best. So keep scrolling to see eight excellent examples of summer tops to wear with jeans.

1. Bardot + Bleached Jeans

Style Notes: Off-the-shoulder tops are the epitome of summer style. Give them an edge like Anne-Laure Mais did with bleached denim and stark-black accessories.

Shop the look:

Le Specs The Last Lolita Sunglasses (£75)

River Island Gingham Top (£32)

Rag & Bone Acid Wash Jeans (£84)

Clarks Pure Flat in Black Leather (£79)

2. White Tank + Ecru Denim

Style Notes: Top-to-toe white never fails to look chic, as evidenced by Hannah Crosskey's ensemble. Complete this summer outfit by accessorising with a basket bag and strappy mules.

Shop the look:

Free People That Easy Tank (£18)

Monki Yoko Jeans (£40)

Muuñ Panier Woven Straw and Cotton Tote Bag (£195)

& Other Stories Strappy Leather Heeled Sandal (£85)

3. Wrap Blouse + Kick-Flares

Style Notes: Wrap dresses are all the rage right now, and it seems the silhouette is slowly taking over the blouse scene, too. Look for styles with flounced sleeves, and then mirror them with kick-flare blues, just like Ada Oguntodu did.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Puff Sleeve Wrap Top (£35)

Olivia & Pearl Stellar Drop Earrings (£130)

Mango Flared Jeans (£36)

Rupert Sanderson Calin Leather Flats (£395)

4. Camisole + Ripped Jeans

Style Notes: Give a silk camisole a cool spin with a pair of ripped jeans for the perfect high-low combination. Throw in a snake-print bag like Sabina Socol did for extra summer 2019 kudos.

Shop the look:

Missoma Gold Double-Chain Necklace (£129)

M Missoni Draped Silk Crepe Camisole (£85)

Reiss Lakeley Ripped Jeans (£110)

Jigsaw Audley Leather Snake Effect Bag (£150)

5. Halter + Straight-Leg Jeans

Style Notes: Of course, our resident columnist Monikh is ahead of the halter-neck trend. Keep the look relaxed by leaving your top untucked and opting for straight-leg jeans. Finish with raffia accessories.

Shop the look:

Free People I Dare You Tank (£74)

Daisy Estée Lalonde Goddess Glow Hoop Earrings 18Ct Gold Plate (£119)

COS Organic Straight-Leg Jeans (£69)

Bottega Veneta Stretch Raffia Sandals (£750)

6. Sheer Top + Skinny Jeans

Style Notes: Lucy Williams is a master at giving polished pieces a downtime spin. Case in point? Her sheer polka-dot top and vintage-wash skinny jeans. Add an oversize watch and layered necklaces for a true Williams homage.

Shop the look:

Saint Laurent Ruffled Polkadot Blouse (£1225)

Laura Lombardi Lusia Necklace (£240)

Mango Super Slim-Fit Jeans (£50)

Daniel Wellington Iconic Link 28mm Bracelet Strap Watch (£189)

7. Bandeau + Barrel-Leg Jeans

We have a hunch that bandeau tops are going to make a comeback this season. Offset their streamlined fit with a pair of volumised, barrel-leg jeans.

Shop the look:

Monki Ribbed Tube Top (£15)

Daphine Lucia Ring (£80)

Frame Barrel Jeans (£275)

Bensimon Leather Flat Crossover Sandals (£120)

8. Cropped Top + Wide-Leg Denim

Wide-leg jeans are trending right now, so it makes sense to pair them with summer's number one top: a crop top with a tie waist.

Shop the look:

Gap Oversized Linen Tunic Shirt (£50)

ASOS Tie-Waist Crop Top (£16)

Zara Wide-Leg Jeans (£30)

Dune Kadas Sandals (£75)
