12 Ways I Plan On Styling My Jeans In 2021

Despite my very best efforts, I have fallen into a rut when it comes to getting dressed for working from home. I currently alternate between two pairs of jeans, and three jumpers, but am now itching to switch things up and find some new ways to style my denim staples. I'm not talking about anything radical here, as I'll still be sat in my living room—but little styling tweaks that might help me fall in love with my jeans again. Below I've found 12 styling ideas that I plan on copying (again and again) in 2021, and many revolve around basics like breton tees, polo tops, Oxford shirts and knitted vests. 

Earlier this month my colleague Elinor wrote about the key new denim trends for 2021, speaking to denim experts from both 7 For All Mankind and & Other Stories. Much like the autumn/winter 2020 trends, sticking to pieces that last is really the biggest takeaway for jeans, too. Straight-legs, slightly faded blue denim washes and wide-leg looser jeans are the three overarching themes. None of the jeans below are anything too radical—there's no patchwork, statement-making silhouettes or prints, but just really great fitting classic jeans. Keep scrolling for 12 styling ideas I've taken from Instagram this month.
