There are a few easy outfit formulas I personally wear and also recommend to others when they’re looking for ideas, and a blazer paired with jeans and a simple top is one of the said ensembles. But, the other front-runner that I’m basically living in right now is a pair of relaxed jeans, a grey sweater in a roomier cut, with a pair of flat shoes. While it’s inherently simple, there’s also something chic and effortless about this specific pairing. 

With that in mind, I’ve scoped the net for some stylish inspo, and found plenty of fashion people in this tried and tested ensemble to showcase the appeal of the outfit formula, and with plenty of different flat shoe options. Keep scrolling for more on the no-fuss look, complete with a shoppable edit of standout jeans, sweaters, and flats (that’s sneakers, boots, loafers, and ballet flats) if you want to add one or all of the items to your 2024 offering.

Style Notes: This is one of my go-to 5 minute ensembles consisting of a relaxed sweater, straight-leg jeans, and of-the-moment sneakers.

I love the dropped shoulder for the perfect slouchy fit. 

Head straight for Massimo Dutti, for premium-looking jeans at an affordable price point.

If you didn’t already know, Adidas are having a moment. 

Style Notes: It may seem deceptively simple, but the sweater half-tucked into jeans is effortlessly-chic, and the polished loafers complete this vibe. And, while it’s still cold, I’ll be swapping a crew neck for a slouchy turtleneck instead.

A snuggly knit you’ll want to wear year after year. 

The high-waist, loose leg and tapered cut make these the flattering silhouette to remember.  

The perfect chunky loafer for jeans. tailored trousers, mini skirts, midi dresses… 

Style Notes: This monochromatic look feels bang on-trend with a grey jacket, grey sweater, grey jeans, and some very sought after Uggs. 

100% cashmere for 100% luxury. 

Honestly, some of my favourite jeans online right now. 

You cannot find the tan minis anywhere right now, so we’ll settle for the short. 

Style Notes: Easy ballet flats bring an extra modern and pretty element to the grey-sweater–and-jeans look, so why not try an oversized v-neck you wear over a white tee, or a bouclé jacket for a nod to French styling. Trés chic. 

Grey marl elevates everything that it’s paired with. 

Try an ankle grazing jean to make the most of a fashionable ballet flat. 

Anything The Row turns their hand to turns to fashion gold. 

Style Notes: Yes, this longline coat adds one more chic element to the easy outfit with the sweater and jeans, but it’s the colour pop sneakers that really lift the look.

Wear loosely and sized up over a slip dress in spring too. 

If you’re looking for a looser, more relaxed fit, look no further than Arket’s Dahlia jean. 

Take a leaf out of Anouk’s book and swap classic white trainers for a bold pop of green.
