There’s no denying the ease of jeans and a sweater—whether you’re cheering a kid on from the sidelines, sitting on a Zoom call, lunching with your girls, or erranding on the weekend.

But just because it’s a no-brainer look, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider it. Or rather, let US put some thought into it for you!

Starting with the jeans, we’re leaning into the wide leg, a super current style that is universally flattering:

  • For EVERY body, opt for high-waisted styles that cinch and support the waist.
  • If you’re petite, avoid unnecessary details (extra pockets) and cuffs at the ankle, which will shorten you
  • If you’re bottom-heavy, go for a dark rinse and look for styles that have larger back pockets because they’ll visually shrink your backside
  • Too long? Get them to a tailor or just cut them yourself and fray them when you wash them.

As for the rest of the look, the recipe is simple: take a white top of your preference, throw a chic sweater in a bright color over your shoulders (it’ll provide a pretty frame for your face as well as an instant mood boost), and pair it with a great sneaker. Yep, sneakers are still trending hard, and we love it when there’s instant overlap with comfort.

Goal: Midsection / Chest / Hips / Thigh Flattery

Outfit Recipe: Cropped Wide Leg Jean + V-Neck Top + Cardigan

Slightly cropped jeans in a dark color and a v-neck, puff sleeve blouse are universally flattering. Look for coordinated details like matching the feminine blouse sleeve to a more feminine cardigan and sneakers.

Goal: Midsection /Chest Flattery

Outfit Recipe: Cuffed Wide Leg Jean + Tee + Cardigan

Cuffed wide-leg jeans are in. Balance the cuff with a streamlined upper half—a simple tee shirt (opt for a V-neck if you are chesty) and a cool cardigan tossed over the shoulders.

Jeans: Frame ($298.00); Tee: Banana Republic ($27.00); Sweater: Kule ($298.00) Sneakers: Tretorn ($75.00); Sunglasses: Chimi ($160.00)

Goal: Midsection / Chest / Hips / Thigh Flattery

Outfit Recipe: Wide Leg Jean + Button Down + Cardigan

Layering a cardigan over a button-down is classically cool. Only button one or two and let the layering do the work. Plus, the extra length of the button down will camo the hips, thighs, and behind if you prefer a little more booty coverage.

Jeans: Banana Republic ($54.00); Button-down: Gap ($49.95); Cardigan: Chinti & Parker ($197.50); Sneakers: Sorel ($85.92); Bag: Rebecca Minkoff ($198.00); Reading Glasses: Peepers ($35.00)
