For instant street cred.

The summer solstice has been and gone, which means it’s high time to start preparing your transitional closet as the sun starts to set a little sooner and the evenings cool down on the approach to fall. One effortless formula we’ve noticed that the fashion set swear by is the button-down dress layered over a pair of high-fashion jeans: not only is it a great beach-to-bus-home outfit that’s easy to pull off, it’s a sun-infused look that’ll keep the chill off, too. 

Think the elegance of Phoebe Philo combined with the quirkiness of Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, and you’ll start to understand what this look is all about: it’s fun, stylish and – most importantly – incredibly easy. Simply pull on your favorite pair of jeans and then slip on a summer-y midi. For optimum results, make sure the dress is unbuttoned to at least the waist to show off your denim as you strut. 

Make sure the skirt of your dress is fairly floaty, otherwise you’ll get VPL (Visible Pocket Line) from your jeans. We love mixing romantic designs with edgy details, like a printed floral top with a distressed denim bottom. Finish off the look with a straw bag and a bright pair of mules while the sun is still shining, and switch in a leather tote and sharp sneakers as the season draws to a close. 

If you’re still not sure how to wear it, here’s some inspo from the style experts. Convinced? We knew you would be. Scroll down to shop our selection of cool-girl-inspired button-down and jean pairings to spend the rest of summer in:
