'Jeans and a Nice Top' and How to Wear Them
Little all else can compete with jeans and a nice top combination when you're heading out for a day with friends, for date night, a wander around town or even to a work meeting (depending on the type of jeans, of course!).
How do you style jeans and a top?
The great thing about choosing your outfit for jeans and top combo is that you can pick whether to be as casual or as fancy as you like. So whether you're after a simple staple top to go with your patterned jeans or a loud, flamboyant top to go with your fun jeggings - you can choose what items, or accessories, do the talking.
One of the best looks comes from combining two opposites, smart with casual. A formal, sophisticated blouse can go beautifully with a dark pair of jeans. The more casual the event then the bigger the trouser, for example, you could comfortably wear a pair of dark skinny jeans to a meeting with a blouse, but you would be less likely to wear wide-legged flares.
Here we’re going to go through the stunning tops we have available for you to try out with your favourite denim.
Tops to wear to work
Our Branscombe Tops
Our Branscombe tops are available in two different patterns, including floral pink mist and floral navy mist. Each mist blouse offers expert tailoring with a v-neckline with chic tie detail. Additionally, three-quarter length sleeves add an autumnal touch to an otherwise summer-type blouse.
With each having stunning pastel notes that are on opposite sides of the colour scheme, we suggest trying our accessories in similar shades. A few of our favourites are below.

Animal Print with Jeans
Animal print is one of those trends that made itself known in the 90s before drifting back behind the curtains only to peak out in small touches, whether it’s blouses, hair accessories or footwear. Here we love incorporating animal print into our autumnal looks, and it’s even better that they go perfectly with jeans without being overpowering.
Our Ricky Animal-Print Long-Sleeved top comes in two different patterns, gold brown and silver black. Made using our satin fabric, the top features a loose knot tie at the front, with bell-look flared sleeves. Its subtle details ensure you can wear this type of top to smart or casual events.

Houndstooth is an original, statement pattern that creates a winner each and every time.
Made using our Stretch Perry Jersey Jacquard material, our Tamar top is all things chic when it comes to wearing a statement piece. Featuring both a turtle high neck and long sleeves, our Tamar top is typically perfectly styled when paired with a black pencil skirt. However, on this occasion, this top could make an autumnal entrance with skinny jeans and knee-high boots.

Cashmere-Feel with Jeans
Nothing quite says cosy-autumnal-days like soft cashmere-feel clothes to wear at home and snuggly underneath your waterproof coat when you head out with the dog for a walk. We love our boat neckline Muscari top, which comes in both trending shades of Lavender and Flint Grey. Tailored for a flattering fit this could also be worn on cooler days where you need something more than a top, but less than a bulky coat.

Another casual fit top is our Dahlia top, which comes in three dark shades of burgundy, black and deep red. Made using our stretch velvet, this long-sleeved asymmetrical top is sure to offer endless style and comfort.

Double up on the Denim
Like most trends, you'd not be surprised to read that double denim has its stand-out moments just as much as it has its crashes. With double denim trending one week, it can be a cliché combination the next. For one thing, we love it. Do it correctly and you can have a winning combination on your hands.
Credited with being a trending topic in the 90s it was actually the 70s and 80s that saw the double denim look soar.
Types of jeans to wear with a nice top
Gone are the days when your wardrobe would consist of a staple pair of jeans, instead we now have a variety to choose from. We have gone through and mentioned some of our favourites below.
Mom Jeans and a Nice Top
Mom jeans are a much-loved trend that is definitely here to stay. Offering a fitted waist, slim hips and soft tapering down through the leg these can pair great with both flats and boots.
Skinny Jeans and a Nice Top
In the mid-to-late 00s, the boom of skinny jeans became the prominent look inside every wardrobe. Whether they are worn with heels for a night out, knee-high boots for winter strolls, high-top converse for chilled days or glitzy flats for an evening out in the town, these jeans are the staple of all staples.
Straight Leg Jeans
The perfect jean when you're wanting a straight leg without the skinny ankle or the wide-leg flare. With straight-leg jeans, you are able to wear them with pretty much any kind of footwear available. Where flats, for example, may offer a flattering fit, heels and boots can aid in elongating the legs.
Wide-leg jeans give the benefit of denim wearing with the comfort of them being roomier. Where they usually cinch in the waist, they then typical fall into a wide outlet design the further they fall. In contrast to the flare jeans, these remain wide throughout. Pairing these with heels is a good look as it creates a longer leg, which is hidden behind the baggy material further up.
