9 Easy Spring Items to Make All Your Jeans Outfits Look Expensive

Let’s face it, jeans are the most worn piece in the majority of our wardrobes. Especially at this transitional time of year when even dress people end up turning to their hero denim for a more covered up but still fresh outfit option. The best thing about them, and probably why we all rely on jeans so much, is that they’re so versatile; a classic that can be taken into each season and reinvented depending on what you wear them with. 

And since we’ve just hit that awkward time in the year when we’re not quite in the depths of winter anymore and definitely starting to look forward to spring, we thought it might be a good time to help jog your memory on some of the simplest, chicest ways to transform your favourite jeans from being your winter staples to your spring ones. 

We’ve whittled it down to 9 key items that reliably look great with any and all jeans in spring while also elevating them beyond the average ‘jeans and T-shirt’ casual affair. 

We’re talking smart, oversized blazers for a ’90s vibe, crisp shirts à la Kendall Jenner, French girl-inspired tweed jackets and, of course, some breton stripes. They’re all, as you’ll see, really easy items, but pair them with your go to straight-legs, skinnies, flares or wide-legs and you’ve got some instant expensive-looking outfits you can turn to again and again this season.

Hopefully the looks and key buys below will inspire you to either rediscover these pieces in your own wardrobes for spring or figure out which hero items you might still be missing. What are you waiting for? keep scrolling to see…

You just can’t go wrong with a pretty white top and jeans ensemble. Add some fun accessories, and you’re set.

Tweed jackets come french-girl approved and will dress up any and all of your jeans. 

Striped jumpers go with most things since they’re so versatile, but they come into their own with denim.
