If you’ve got a blazer that’s more form-fitting you can opt for a more relaxed pair of denim such a mom jeans or straight leg jeans. Whether you pair with trainers or heels, opt for a more fitted top underneath to define your silhouette and balance out the baggier fit on your bottom half. Alternatively, if you’ve got an oversized blazer on, you can go for baggier denim for a retro appeal or pair with skinny jeans to streamline your silhouette and balance out the oversized top half.
