There's a Good Chance I'll Be Wearing These 5 Simple Items With Jeans for Spring

Sara Ramen Simple Items to Wear With Jeans



Get more mileage out of your jeans this season with the help of these five versatile items. 

There is a variety of fashion pieces that won’t go out of style, and jeans are one of them. Denim is a mainstay because of its ease, cool factor, and the fact that it's universally flattering thanks to the endless number of styles available. In fact, you can wear jeans with just about anything. However, my favourite things to wear with jeans are all stylish, simple items.

These days, I am all for looks that take little to no effort, and as we enter into spring, I am keeping this in mind. While outfit-planning for the new season, I knew jeans would be on heavy rotation, and I’ve begun to narrow down my top simple picks to help round out each look. The great thing is that just because a piece is simple, it doesn’t mean it’s all about basics. Trendy pieces, especially those of the minimalistic variety, fit the bill perfectly as well.

Ahead, I pinpoint five of the simple items I’ll be wearing with jeans for spring. From tops to shoes to outerwear, I rounded up stylish picks for each item to shop now.

1. Fisherman Sandals

Fisherman sandals are bound to be a big trend this season. While I love the fashion-forward sandals styled with a variety of pieces, there is nothing like wearing a great pair with jeans.

If you're looking for something other than a black colourway, this sporty yet elevated pair is a great choice.

These will look excellent with a bright-red pedi. 

The Row's is the It version of this sandal style. These will be all over your Instagram feed this season. They come in cream as well.

Turns out Grenson creates sandals that are as impressive as its boots. 

2. Tucked-In Tees

One thing is for sure—you'll never be able to convince me that a tee and jeans isn't a classic look. The combo never fails and can easily be dressed up or down. The key is finding the right fit. Thankfully, the options are endless.


Lilac is having a moment, and this is a super-easy way to incorporate it into your closet.

I consider a black T-shirt an essential no matter the time of year.

I love a neutral T-shirt to switch things up a bit. It often feels more elevated than other colours.

There's nothing more classic than a striped tee.

This white tee comes with so many of our editors’ seals of approval. 

3. Draped Sweaters

I was excited to see the resurgence of draped jumpers over the shoulders of my favourite style muses. It's such an effortless way to make any outfit look more elevated.


This lightweight striped sweater can be worn for many seasons to come.

I’m into the interesting neckline on this oversize knit. 

Camel knitwear will forever be classic. 

Two things that caught my eye here are the bell sleeves and the slouchy fit.

Fashion people are obsessed with American Vintage knitwear. 

4. Classic Trench Coats

If there is one piece that will instantly add a polished feel to any outfit, it is hands down a trench coat. Throw one on over jeans, and voilà—you have an immediate confidence boost.


The minimalistic cut of this trench coat looks so premium. 

I love the look of a lighter-coloured trench coat. It feels fresh for spring.

Rather than the usual tan or camel options, reach for this elevated navy pick. 

You can't get more timeless than this sleek classic version. Plus, it's under £50

This is a great designer option for topping off a variety of outfits.

5. Oversized Button-Down Shirts

Button-down shirts and jeans are a match made in fashion heaven. The simple piece makes a big impact in that it makes you feel put together with little effort. Another plus? There are endless designs and colours for every personal style.


Here's a pick that's spot-on for re-creating TyLynn's effortless look.

There's something relentlessly cool about a slouchy striped button-down shirt.

A white shirt can be worn with jeans in so many ways: fully tucked, half-tucked, open with another layer underneath, and more.

I'm not one to go for bold colours, but there is something about this yellow curved-hem iteration.

After a white option, a light-blue button-down shirt is the next in line for my usual go-to.
