If I'm Recommending One Simple Outfit, It's This Jeans, Sweater, and Shoe Combo

There are a few easy outfit formulas I personally wear and also recommend to others when they’re looking for ideas, and a blazer paired with jeans and a simple top is one of the said ensembles. But, the other front-runner that I’m basically living in right now is a pair of relaxed jeans, a grey sweater in a roomier cut, with a pair of flat shoes. While it’s inherently simple, there’s also something chic and effortless about this specific pairing. 

With that in mind, I’ve scoped the net for some stylish inspo, and found plenty of fashion people in this tried and tested ensemble to showcase the appeal of the outfit formula, and with plenty of different flat shoe options. Keep scrolling for more on the no-fuss look, complete with a shoppable edit of standout jeans, sweaters, and flats (that’s sneakers, boots, loafers, and ballet flats) if you want to add one or all of the items to your 2023 offering.

Style Notes: This is one of my go-to 5 minute  ensembles consisting of a relaxed sweater, straight-leg jeans, and of-the-moment sneakers.

I love the dropped shoulder for the perfect slouchy fit. 

Elegant charcoal grey elevates everything that it’s paired with. 

Levi’s are specialists in great fitting and reasonably priced denim. 

This dark, inky blue will be a great addition to any wardrobe. 

If you didn’t already know, Adidas are having a moment. 

If you don’t them in Adidas, fashion’s most stylish are all wearing New Balance. 

Style Notes: It may seem deceptively simple, but the sweater half-tucked into jeans is effortlessly-chic, and the polished loafers complete this vibe. And, while it’s still cold, I’ll be swapping a crew neck for a slouchy turtleneck instead.

Just add wide leg trousers for an easy throw-on and go outfit. 

A snuggly knit you’ll want to wear year after year. 

That’s right–Boden aren’t just floral prints and summer dresses, there’s top quality denim too. 

The high-waist, loose leg and tapered cut make these the flattering silhouette to remember.  

The perfect chunky loafer for jeans. tailored trousers, mini skirts, midi dresses… 

A designer looking shoe for half the price. 

Style Notes: This monochromatic look feels bang on-trend with a grey jacket, grey sweater, grey jeans, and some very sought after Uggs. 

100% cashmere for 100% luxury. 

This wardrobe staple also comes in biscuit brown and cream, so you can mix and match your look. 

Honestly, some of my favourite jeans online right now. 

A gentle barrel fit perfect for those looking for a little more room around the hips. 

You cannot find the tan minis anywhere right now, so we’ll settle for the short. 

Act fast to get these in dark grey, there’s only a few sizes left. 

Style Notes: Easy ballet flats bring an extra modern and pretty element to the grey-sweater–and-jeans look, so why not try an oversized v-neck you wear over a white tee, or a bouclé jacket for a nod to French styling. Trés chic. 

Ultra soft cashmere fabric guaranteed to keep you super warm and cosy.

Theory know good staples, so you know this knit will be worth the investment. 

The perfect mix of fit, shape and true blue. 

Try a cropped, ankle grazing jean to make the most of a fashionable ballet flat. 

Anything The Row turns their hand to turns to fashion gold. 

After we spotted Alexa Chung in Mary Jane flats, we went out and bought Mary Jane flats. 

Style Notes: Yes, this longline coat adds one more chic element to the easy outfit with the sweater and jeans, but it’s the colour pop sneakers that really lift the look.

A cropped knit ideal for layering over a sharp, white shirt.

Wear loosely and sized up over a slip dress in spring too. 

If you’re looking for a looser, more relaxed fit, look no further than Aligne’s Frida jean. 

These come in five different washes, so you’re spoiled for choice. 

Take a leaf out of Anouk’s book and swap classic white trainers for a bold pop of green. 

Just imagine how good these look with a neutral, tonal outfit.
