A pair you can depend on

It’s a tale as old as time.
Girlfriend one: “What are you wearing this weekend?”
Every girl ever: “I dunno... probably jeans and a nice top.”
The endless memes are testament to its relatability. And as the internet decrees; once there’s a meme about it, it’s fact.

It’s all-too familiar because we have those occasions on the reg, where etiquette demands we part with our beloved (and just the right amount of nostalgic) adidas track pants, but a dress just feels, too much. Jeans-and-a-nice-top is reliable ground.

Ross & Rachel are permanently on a break, Brad & Ange went their separate ways. But THIS, this is a couple you can rely on. As iconic a pairing as Vegemite and toast.

No matter how effortlessly French-girl you’ve managed to get your hair that day, a little bit of denim just brings any look back down to Earth. The question is which jeans and which top? Whether it’s a dinner with friends or a weekend date, you want to look like you’ve made an effort, but not tried too hard.

Take a look at our favourite pairings:

Denim with interesting details, like fringed hemlines and taping down the sides, upgrades your jeans from everyday staples to fashion-led essentials.

Your perfect excuse to play with textures, durable denim is beautifully contrasted by plush velvet and whisperweight silk.

Do denim day to night with loose fits, soft shades and floral prints.

Liven up this classic pairing with a splash of rich colour - the season's saffron yellow hue is the perfect choice.

A hint of lace makes the look evening-ready, ideal for dinner and drinks.

Bring romantic, vintage-inspired designs into the present with your go-to jeans and heels.
