It’s the not-so-secret outfit formula that knows no bounds and that’s been uttered across female Whatsapp groups, Facebook groups and MSN chats before that for decades (or at least since 2003): jeans and a nice top. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and the reason it’s so prolific is because it’s versatile, easy to throw on and always delivers.
With party season in full swing, it feels like the perfect time to revisit one of our wardrobe favourites. Not only is a nice top and jeans a combination for indecisive weather (something us Brits are certainly familiar with) and therefore acceptable attire for roughly 85% of the year, but it is also is decidedly nostalgic and can be tirelessly refreshed.
This is why it’s no surprise that the pairing has also been proven as the cool-girl’s go-to for smart/casual dressing by some of our favourite influencers. From dinner dates to nights out, there are few style dilemmas in life that it can’t solve, and as such, it’s no wonder that a host of online retailers have dedicated whole shopping sections to the infamous style duo on their sites.
Whatever your budget, this season there’s definitely a fancy top (or 14) to match and we’re sure that you’ll have them on rotation through to 2019 and beyond. Here are our top 30 picks from & Other Stories, Net-a-Porter and more that we’re so here for.
