One of the easiest outfits in the book is a top and jeans, right? It's fail-safe, you can't go wrong, etc., etc. After rotating through the same few iterations of said formula, however, it can quickly become stale unless you make a few tiny tweaks to refresh the look. What kind of tweaks, you wonder? Simple ones! If you usually pair a solid top with jeans, switch to a print. If you stick to classic button-down silhouettes, consider a high-neck style or puffy sleeve instead. If you shy away from spiffier fabrics like satin or crepe, don't! Trust me, if the top is simple, it won't feel overly fussy.
As far as denim goes, we all have our favorites. But every once in a while, it's good to change it up. This season, darker denim is especially on trend, but that hardly means ditching lighter washes altogether. With the right top, a faded pair of jeans looks perfectly in season, particularly with polished jewelry and a great pair of boots to punctuate the look.
No matter where you wear tops and jeans, be it to the office, on weekends, or for a date, there's always room for fresh styling ideas so you can avoid the whole getting-sick-of-each-piece thing. So, without further ado, witness our Executive Style Director Dana Avidan Cohn ahead in a super pretty top by No.6, styled two different ways. With a swap of jeans (both from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's) and shoes, the easy outfit is instantly transformed and feels effortlessly polished for the office, dinner, and beyond.
