A few simple tricks can make even intentionally rumpled-looking pieces feel proper and polished. To pull this look together, start with a pair of “boyfriend”-cut jeans (styles that are relatively slim-cut will be the most flattering) and add a layering tee. Whip these slouchy basics into stylish shape by pairing them with tailored and ladylike accessories, like a blazer, pointy-toed pumps, and a clutch. A statement necklace tops it all off and lends a little edge.
