I’ve been trying to work out the perfect outfit to wear right now—you know, for this awkward transitional spring weather we’re having. I’ve tried knits and wide-leg trousers, I’ve tried dresses with trainers, and I’ve tried full-on suits. (I’m usually a big tailoring fan.) But the pairing I keep coming back to again and again is my trust jeans-and-sandals outfit.
It just works for so many occasions at the moment. The jeans don’t give you the same tights-or-no-tights dilemma as a midi dress does, and the sandals say “I’m ready for spring.” But the best part is that you can mix it up within the jeans and sandals categories and create so many different looks with this simple combo. Then, just add a top that works for whatever you’re doing that day. Whether you opt for baggy jeans, platform sandals and a tank top or straight-leg jeans, leather slides and a pretty top, you probably already own the pieces you need to make a great jeans-and-sandal outfit.
Sometimes the hardest part of getting dressed is finding inspiration for outfit combinations, even with an easy pairing like jeans and sandals. And since I’ve been leaning on this look so much this spring, I took it upon myself to start saving some great examples that my favourite influencers have been wearing lately to copy. Below, you’ll find the ones I’ve been styling up the most, and I’ve shopped them out, too, just in case you’re missing any items from a look that you love.
