As a team of fashion enthusiasts of varying tastes, it's not often that a handful of us will walk into the office in literally the same top. This did, however, happen a few months ago with & Other Stories' perfect smocked blouse, which by general consensus, was declared the perfect nice top to wear with jeans. Since then, the smocked trend has taken off in a big way, with countless other brands jumping on the bandwagon.
Plus, if you're looking for a fashion-based, WFH pick-me-up that will look great with your chill-out jeans, then you can't do much better than this style: Flattering, fun and easy-to-wear, we guarantee you won't want to take it off all season long. Thankfully, Stories' monochrome original is now back in stock (we can confirm it will look good on everyone), but there are plenty of other iterations to tickle your fancy. From Monki's colour-pop green to Rixo's quirky print, scroll down to see and shop our edit.
Style Notes: H&M's beige iteration was another high-street winner, with its more bohemian edge. Make like Enis and style with colour-match trousers.
