From cocktails to date nights, ‘jeans and a nice top’ has been an official dress code for a while now (pretty much since Facebook events were invented!), so we’re here to show you how to rock your casual jeans with a perfect little ‘out out’ twist.

We’ve made the art of adding a smart top to your favourite skinnies easy peasy, so check out our fave dressy tops to wear with jeans below.

Going ‘Out Out’ While Staying Warm

Let’s start with the ultimate ‘smart top and jeans’ look, this one’s perfect for going for weekend drinks with the usual suspects. It’s definitely one of the dressier options we’ve got for you, whilst combining it with jeans keeps your pins from freezing off!

We’ve teamed the Light Khaki Crepe Cold Shoulder Drape Top with some iconic coated skinnies and heels. Blue or black jeans are also great options for this look, but we think the slick leather effect keeps these on the edgier side for your more important weekend shenanigans.

Bell Sleeves Beauty

Another key trend from this year that’s absolutely here to stay are bell sleeves and frills. This Button Back Denim Frill Top looks awesome with skinny jeans and heels, but can equally be doubled up with denim jeans and flats for a more daytime look.

Stand Out with Detailed Jeans

It doesn’t all have to be about the smart top to pair with your jeans, this look teams our iconic (but super casual) Harley Knit with more of a statement pair. This embroidered pair of jeans draws attention to your fab legs with some on-trend embroidery.

Brunching All Day

Saturday morning is the global time slot for ‘brunch’, and whether it’s of the boozy variety or not, it almost always calls for ‘jeans and a nice top’. This Ivory Pussy Bow Blouse is ideal for a weekend of shopping and drinks, but equally great for the office.

Sunday Roast Ready

So it’s Sunday, and you’ve already spent your Friday in the bar, then your Saturday having that bittersweet hangover brunch. Today you’re feeling a little more ready to face the day and the week ahead, but no Brit would be prepared for Monday without a Sunday roast. It’s a beautiful fact of life.

One thing’s for sure, today is not the day to wear restrictive clothing, so this Ribbed Star Jumper is the perfect match for your coated skinny jeans (and for your post-roast belly). Team it with some over-the-knee boots and you’ll still look dressy while keeping comfy.
