There is little that doesn’t go well with jeans. Opt for a timeless look by styling the shirt with your favourite pair. Both items are two of your closet’s big guns and together, allow you to stay stylish and comfortable all day long. Top off the look with a set of head-turning heels and a slick of punchy red lipstick for an evening out.
