I don’t know what my closet would look like without denim, and I don’t want to find out. I rely on jeans on a daily basis to provide the foundation for my outfits. (One look at my Instagram will show you exactly what I mean.) I’m happy to dress up jeans for a nice dinner or even wear my comfiest, stretchiest versions on a flight. If left to my own devices, I’d probably wear white tees with jeans 24/7, but I’ve been forcing myself to invest in special basics that make jeans look cool. And that’s where this story comes in.
Below, I’ve rounded up my favorite staples that fashion editors have been wearing with jeans lately. Our Who What Wear Collection is chock-full of basics with a twist that are super versatile and definitely chic. Scroll down for outfit ideas aplenty and to shop my under-$250 picks.
