Okay, so it's sunshine one minute and freezing rain the next, but that's the British springtime for you—completely unpredictable. But don't worry, for we've found the transitional solution to your current outfit woes: spring denim.
Jeans are timeless, easy to style, comfortable and, most importantly, actually pretty cosy, so it makes sense to plan a handful of chic spring jeans outfits that you can throw on at a moment's notice when the weather proves changeable or you plan on spending extended periods of time outdoors at the mercy of the elements. Better yet, we’re pretty sure you’ll be able to assemble such looks with items you already own.
From edgy leather shirting to stylish cardigans, the following spring jeans outfits will satisfy your fashionable needs until baring your legs becomes a feasible option. Scroll below to see them and, should you need to, shop the staples to re-create them.
1. Straight Jeans + Cardigan
Style Notes: We can always count on Monikh when we're in need of a dose of off-duty outfit inspiration. Her straight-leg jeans look chic when worn with an elegant shoulder bag and minimalistic sandals.
2. Collared Blouse + Wide-Leg Jeans
Style Notes: Wide-leg jeans and collared blouses are two of spring's key buys. Put them together, and what do you get? An outfit that'll serve you well for the next six months and beyond.
3. Blazer + Khaki Jeans
Style Notes: Proof that the best jeans looks don't necessarily revolve around blue denim. Karina elevates her khaki pair with a blazer and strappy sandals.
4. Cable-Knit Cardigan + White Heels
Style Notes: While many French women say they steer clear of jeans, Anne-Laure Mais isn't one of them. Somehow, she always manages to make denim look impossibly polished. She even makes this ripped pair look chic with the addition of white mules and a classic cable-knit cardigan.
5. MONOCHROME + MINIMAL JEWELLERY
Style Notes: Far from basic, monochrome outfits are trending in a big way for 2021, and one of the easiest ways to channel the trend is with a pair of ecru jeans and a plain black tee. Just add your favourite gold-tone jewels and simple accessories.
6. Leather Jacket + High-Rise Jeans
Style Notes: Queen of cool Ada Oguntodu always looks her best when jeans are involved. Her combination of a leather jacket, a racer vest and white boots is understated but incredibly stylish. Bravo.
7. Distressed Denim + Fisherman Sandals
Style Notes: Sasha Mei has a knack for making her low-key pieces look so elevated, which is exactly what she's managed to do with this distressed-denim ensemble. Her luxe leather fisherman sandals and high-end arm candy lift her jeans-and-tank combo.
