We like to make getting dressed as easy and as stress-free as possible. That’s why we spend so much time bringing you the best outfits floating around in the fashion ether, many of which will be made up of items you already own. That’s certainly the case as far as this fail-safe ensemble is concerned. Good jeans are available en masse and at lots of really great price points too.
While I’m at it, you just can’t beat a jacket and jeans combo, can you? It’s a chic look that you can pull together at a moment’s notice and that will never let you down—basically everything we want from our wardrobes. While you can confidently style just about any outwear with jeans and know it’ll look good, there are certain jacket styles that loan themselves particularly well to denim. Keep scrolling to see a round-up of sleek but attainable jacket-and-jeans outfits.
Style Notes: Leather outerwear has made a massive comeback this winter, particularly in the guise of ’90s-style blazers. Here, Brittany showcases just how great one can look with an all-black look, using it to add textured to her jeans and boots combo.
A leather blazer is such a versatile wardrobe hero.
Cosy, comfy and so wearable. I love how Brittany has worn her jumper over her shoulders.
Opt for a tapered jean for extra impact.
You can look to Bobbies for great leather boots and shoes, season after season.

Style Notes: With a stylish nod to the 70’s, suede jackets, ideally with fringing like Monikh’s, always look the off-duty part when paired with jeans.
Whistle’s suede jacket is just perfect.
All the Who What Wear editors agree: M&S’s jean range is just so good.
Monikh has worn her combo with trainers, but you could also dress it up with boots. I guarantee these will continue to be a wardrobe staple for years to come.
Style Notes: The only thing fashion types love more than blazers is wearing said blazers with jeans. Take cues from Aïda and style the combination a classic white tee before swapping flats for heels to take it from day to night.
Dress it up with heels and a silk camisole or wear it over t-shirts with converse.
A white tee is a wardrobe essential.
Acne Studios is one of my favourite brands for designer denim with a great fit.

Mark my words, capes are going to be big for SS23.
