If you were to peek inside my wardrobe, you'd quickly see that it's dominated by two items. And while I'd like those items to be It dresses and Manolo Blahniks, the reality is more humble. I'm talking about jeans and jumpers. At last count, I had 12 pairs of jeans and 16 pullovers at my outfit disposal. Now that the weather has reached that tricky in-between stage, I've been (and will undoubtedly continue to be) wearing them on repeat.
Often disregarded as throw-on garments (I'll admit I didn't give my jeans-and-jumper outfits much thought either), the combination can prove to be the perfect wear-anywhere look. Curating your jeans-and-jumper outfits isn't complicated—it's all about finding the knitted yin to your denim yang. With the help of a few sartorially blessed street style stars, I've found seven foolproof formulas that always work. Keep scrolling and you'll see how effective jeans-and-jumper outfits really can be.
The double-up knit is one of this season's more unusual trends (although it's free to recreate, so we're not complaining). Slip into Style styles it to perfection with lilac, colour match jumpers and a pair of raw hem, bleach jeans.
Yellow has been the colour comeback kid of 2018 and Hanna Stefansson's chic look shows that it's so easy to wear. Her patent blue coat offers the perfect contrast to the woolly knit, which is nonchalantly tucked into a pair of flattering high-waisted jeans. The white knee-high boots finish the look off nicely.
Rainbow knits are all the rage for autumn 2018, and we reckon the coolest way to wear them is to play on the '70s vibe. With contrast-stitch wide-leg jeans and patent boots, it'll look the throwback part without teetering on fancy-dress territory.
