We'll never tire of it, as it's the ultimate throw-on look, particularly during the transitional weather between summer and autumn. Keep scrolling to see all our favourite ways to wear blazers and jeans, and then shop the looks below.

Pair it with vintage-wash jeans and sneakers.

Style Notes: This look is a particular favourite of mine. A simple wear-anywhere outfit that is elevated by the blazer yet maintains its comfort thanks to the white sneakers.

Shop the look:

Monki Oversized Blazer (£50)

Levi's Curve 501 Cropped Jeans in Mid Rise (£95)

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic Canvas Plimsolls, White (£44)

Go oversized with slim-leg jeans.

Style Notes: Yes, oversized blazers are back again for 2021, acting as the perfect accompaniment to skinny jeans and slim-fit tops.

Shop the look:

The Frankie Shop Bea Oversized Single-Breasted Blazer (£285)

Marks and Spencer Carrie Supersoft Skinny Jeans (£30)

Opt for colours other than black and navy.

Style Notes: Who says your jeans have to be blue and your blazer black? Not us!

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Oversized Wool Blazer (£165)

Massimo Dutti Cropped Flare Fit Jeans (£50)

Christian Louboutin Taralita 85 Leather Slingback Sandals (£545)

Try loose fits head to toe.

Style Notes: If you're now confident with oversized blazers, try out loose-fit jeans and high heels for a different spin.

Shop the look:

H&M Wool-Blend Blazer (£56)

Monki Yoko Jeans (£40)

Bottega Veneta Bloc Leather Boots (£845)

Choose a white jacket for dressy moments.

Style Notes: There's always something swish about a white tailored blazer. Pair with dark, smart denim for the most sophisticated outcome.

Shop the look:

Karen Millen Curve Sparkle Tweed Military Blazer (£152)

Hollister Curvy High-Rise Flare Jeans 39 (£39)

COS Strappy Heeled Sandals (£125)

Embrace 2021's baggy jeans.

Style Notes: You may be forever entwined with your straight-legs or skinnies, but baggy jeans are definitely doing the rounds in high-fashion circles.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Oversized Asymmetric Pinstripe Blazer (£165)

Arket Crew-Neck T-Shirt (£15)

Raey Fold Organic-Cotton Dad Baggy Boyfriend Jeans (£140)

Add party heels for a day-to-night look.

Shop the look:

H&M Oversized Blazer (£35)

COS Straight-Leg Jeans (£69)

Christian Louboutin Chiara Crystal-Embellished Suede Slingback Pumps (£1175)

Double up on the tailoring.

Style Notes: Waistcoats are a hot-ticket item this season. While they look great worn on their own as a top, as TyLynn Nguyen proves, they also work underneath a blazer.

Shop the look:

Arket Oversized Wool Hopsack Blazer (£135)

Mango Mindy Button Up Waistcoat (£36)

& Other Stories Favourite Cut Cropped Jeans (£65)

Cropped styles work well too.

Style Notes: Cropped blazers are an autumn microtrend to take note of. Make like Aniyah Morinia and pair yours with high-waist jeans to offset the shorter hemline.

Shop the look:

NastyGal Cropped Tailored Blazer (£33)

New Look Curves Bright Blue 90s Baggy Fit Jeans (£30)

Zara Wooden Beaded Bucket Bag (£30)

Style light on the bottom and dark up top.

Style Notes: Often with jeans-and-blazer outfits, the darker shades are relegated to the lower half and the lighter to the top. Turn the look on its head by pairing a black blazer with a pair of ecru jeans.

Shop the look:

H&M+ Oversized Blazer (£35)

Totême Barrel-Leg Jeans (£230)

Chanel Small Double Flap Bag (£3900)

Use rips to add edge.

Style Notes: There's no denying that tweed blazers look sharp, but the last thing you want is for them to become stuffy. Bestow them with a cool edge by styling them with a pair of ripped jeans.

Shop the look:

Anine Bing Fishbone Blazer (£365)

Abercrombie & Fitch Curve Love High Rise Dad Jeans (£82)

Office Acrobat Abstract Mid Heel Boots (£95)
