You might think that easy outfits are boring and lack impact, but this year, we keep seeing people wearing amazing statement blouses with jeans. It's an outfit that couldn't be simpler to style, but was neglected after the early '00s. However, fashion influencers have rediscovered the power of jeans and a nice top, and thankfully, there's no shortage of them in every new-in section right now.
If you're happy to splurge, Ganni has a beautiful organza blouse, Orseund Iris creates the most beautiful satin blouses and Budapest-based brand Nanushka uses amazing colours, like bright pinks and lilacs. On the high street, there are Zara's chiffon blouses in polka dot and green, which look really expensive. And no one will believe ASOS's grey-and–neon green satin blouse with a knot detail at the neckline is affordable.
We've not been this into jeans and a nice top since Season 1 of The OC first aired. Keep scrolling to shop 15 blouses that will liven up your jeans.
