2. Silk camisole
Contrast is key. That said, consider opting for luxe fabrics to strike a balance and elevate your relaxed jeans. Try reaching for silk or satin camisole that will bring a soft, delicate, and sultry look in contrast to the sturdy and tough denim fabric.

Denim can easily look bulky and rugged in addition to feeling too laidback. Combat this by playing with volume proportion. Dress up your denim jeans with a sheer top that can offset the heftiness vibe of your bottoms.

Cardigans worn as tops were made famous in the late '90s up until the early 2000s. Give it a 2019 twist by opting for cropped and tiny iterations, styled with deliberately undone buttons, and haphazardly worn with one of its sleeves slightly shrugged off your shoulder.
