High-Waisted Jeans

We love high-waisted jeans for their shape and style. Wear these versatile jeans with a classic trench coat and a graphic top for a chic, put-together look.

Anine Bing Ramona Sweatshirt Anine Bing x Terry O'Niell ($169)

Levi's Ribcage Straight Ankle Jeans ($98)

Converse Chuck Taylor Low Top Sneakers ($50)

Boot-Cut Jeans

This style is quite comfortable. Keep it cool and fresh by wearing an all-white look, or transition into autumn by pairing with a pretty cami and booties, or a lightweight sweater coat.

Habitual Ella Cami ($89)

CQY Bliss High Rise Bootcut Jeans ($275)

Marc Fisher Yale Chelsea Boots ($143)

Wide-Leg Jeans

This year, it doesn’t get much cooler than wide-leg jeans! This look works well with a structured top to balance out the wider leg, or with a relaxed jacket for a chic vibe.

Madewell Whisper Cotton Rib-Crewneck Tee ($20)

Mother Sunburst Roller Unfinished Ankle Jeans ($258)

Distressed Jeans

There’s nothing like wearing a great pair of comfy, distressed jeans. We're into the idea of wearing them with something classic, like a simple white shirt or a printed top.

Topshop Ripped Dad Jeans ($80)

Dolce Vita Harmny Mules ($90)

This style is timeless. For a casual, effortless look, wear a button-up blouse knotted at the waist. Want a bit more polish? Throw on a sweater or a leather jacket.

It’s all about proportion with this style, and pairing them with the right top is key. We like to wear skinnies with a looser-style top or a blazer. We like to cuff them at the hem too.
