The pretty pink polo goes well with voluminous wide denim jeans. So does the blue knit top if you’re going for a blue x blue, one-tone trendy look. We love the pair by Levi’s. These jeans are a new fit and designed with a signature balloon cut and wide hem. It screams ultra cool.

A light-color stripe shirt combined with a pair of pale denim is perfect for spring. The jeans by Emoda have a moderately loose silhouette which gives off a trendy vibe. And the fringe design at the bottom also adds that casualness when paired with a crisp shirt.

3. Sheer 

If you’re feeling a little more daring, you’ll love the sheer trend. A sheer blouse or top adds that touch of femininity to your look while the jeans toughen it up. Don’t shy away from color either. Be bold, be confident!

Savvy Jeans Pick:

Although the delicate sheer material is slightly girly, it can be perfectly balanced and dressed down when worn with a pair of baggy jeans like the one by Uniqlo. These middle-rise, baggy jeans make your legs look longer due to the carefully selected material and stitching. That’s a win!

4. Spring Sandals 

Are you looking to be head-to-toe trendy? Bring in the sense of spring by starting with footwear. Sneakers may normally be your go-to when wearing jeans, but why not try out a pair of cool yet feminine gurkha sandals (a very popular choice this season) with a pointed toe instead?

Savvy Jeans Pick:

To really draw attention to your trendy gurkha sandals, a pair of tapered jeans is your best option. The pair by Lee is loose, comfy and gives plenty of room at the top. However, it will still give you a clean and sharp look as the tapered jeans gradually narrow down toward the ankle.

5. Double Denim 

Ultimate trendsetter alert! The denim set-up outfit is back and it’s so in this spring. First, pick a basic denim jacket that will never go out of fashion. Then, it’s time to play around with the jeans. The 1970s-inspired flared pants in particular are very stylish and totally trending right now.

Savvy Jeans Pick:

The classic denim x denim is something we love and is easy to pull off. However, if you’re ready to take it to the next level, why not try a colored denim x denim ensemble? Pastel pink is a favorite springtime color and it enables a seamless transition from winter to spring as the days begin to get warmer.
