For Her:

Boyfriend Jeans

featured style: Levi’s® Women’s 501 Customized Jeans

Sky-High Heels

featured style: Nine West Tatiana Pumps

Pairing relaxed-fit denim with dressier heels adds up to such an effortlessly chic look for both day and night. We particularly love oversized boyfriend jeans paired with super sexy pumps. It just elevates the look and keeps the jeans from looking frumpy.

 

Basic Tees

featured style: Splendid Vintage Whisper V-Neck Tee

+

Skirts

featured style: kensie Ponte Skirt

The unsung hero of our closets, basic tees are surprisingly versatile for a lot of different occasions. To dress up a simple cotton t-shirt, pair it with a knee-length skirt for the office, and a sparkly mini skirt for a night out. You can even let a printed or sequined skirt shine by pairing it with a very basic tee. It’s all about striking that perfect balance of laidback and feminine.

 

Sweatshirts/Pullover

featured style: Free People In A Hurry Hoodie

+

Leggings

featured style: HUE Floral Gleam Denim Skimmer Legging

Comfy up top, party in the bottom. That’s sort of the vibe this combo achieves with a mix of relaxed and dressy all in one easy-to-wear outfit. Take your oversized grey sweaters and sweatshirts up a notch with printed or textured leggings. The great part is, you can really go all out with the leggings here since the sweater is the more subdued element in this equation. Who says a sweatshirt has to be frumpy? Not with this killer combo!
