What does this dress code actually mean?


So, what does the ‘jeans & a nice top’ dress code actually consist off? It’s the question that all girls want to know the answer to.

Of course, the jeans part of it is relatively easy to understand as there are only a few types to choose from; it’s always either black, denim or white jeans and they’re usually the skinny kind. This is known as the basic part of the outfit and is the easiest part by a mile.

However, to complete the style, we must pair our jeans with a nice top. Now, this should be as easy as it sounds but it’s the part that we get stuck on the most. Your own personal opinion will of course determine what you consider as a ‘nice top’ but to help out everyone else, we think that best way of putting it is this:

‘A nice top is a top that you wouldn’t usually wear day-to-day or chill out in around the house; it’s one that has a bit of sparkle or detail on it and one that you feel dressy in’

Below, we have chosen our three favourite nice tops and jeans for you to check out:
