Shout-out to everyone who hates summer because right now, it’s your time to shine. The weather is no longer sweltering, and we can get out the best bits of our wardrobes: jeans and jumpers. But with so many combinations to try, which ones are working in 2021? Below, I’ve collected a few of my favourite looks that will work with any kind of footwear you choose—whether it’s still warm where you are and you want sandals (probably pushing it now, though) or it’s starting to cool down and therefore time for your favourite pair of ankle boots.
But back to the actual outfits. There’s a cut-out-jumper-and-baggy-jeans look that’s ideal for those warmer autumn days and great for wearing if you’re WFH. Then there’s the knitted co-ord (bralette and cardi) that’s still going strong. Right now, however, I’m particularly into the minimalistic look in the form of a roll-neck and skinny jeans. Keep scrolling to find the above and more.
1. Cut-Out Knit + Baggy Jeans
Style Notes: If you could nail down the ultimate 2021 outfit, this would be it. Cut-out knits (and cut-outs, in general) have been a big trend this season, and loose, baggy jeans are also one of the most popular denim trends.
2. Beige Cardi + Dark-Blue Jeans
Style Notes: Beige jumpers will always look great. Wear one with dark-blue jeans for the ultimate pairing.
3. Knit Co-Ord + Classic Blue Jeans
Style Notes: Want the jumper-and-jeans outfit to be more polished? Opt for a knitted co-ord paired with smart dark-blue jeans.
4. Roll-Neck + Wide-Leg Jeans
Style Notes: Roll-necks are always a good choice. Add one in an autumnal colour with a pair of wide-leg jeans for a sophisticated take on denim styling.
5. Black Jumper + Slim-Fit Jeans
Style Notes: Calling all minimalists: This is the outfit for you. Add a classic black jumper to slim-fit jeans, and voilà—you have one of the chicest outfits ever.
