#1) Sandro Tie Neck Blouse

Let’s kick things off with this gorgeous tie-neck blouse by Sandro. It’s a pull-over style with a beautiful high neck, intricate stitching, and a body-skimming fit. I have it tucked into the pants but if you’re concerned about hiding a tummy, it would look beautiful untucked too. It is sheer so you’ll want to wear a cami or bralette underneath. This blouse will definitely elevate a pair of your favorite jeans!

#2) Reiss Color Blocked Blouse

This white blouse has the most beautiful details…where do I start? It has a super flattering v-neck with a cool asymmetrical banded, striped collar. The stripes are repeated down the sleeves and on the cuffs. I love the combination of the sporty stripes with the overall femininity of the fabric and draping in the front. It is fully lined which is a nice bonus and it’s lightweight so you can easily tuck it into your jeans.

#3) Evereve Ribbed Cutout Pullover

Another great option is to go with a pullover top like this one from Evereve. It’s a thicker ribbed material that creates a body-skimming look and the cutout adds a little sexiness. The boatneck is flattering AND you can still wear a regular bra with it. The color is perfect for fall and will also be great for the holidays. It looks SO good with jeans and you can definitely layer a cool leather jacket over it for fall.

#4) Wayf Tie Waist Top

Yes, this is a blouse, not a blazer! I know, right? It’s definitely a unique top that looks amazing with jeans. The cool tie detail highlights the tiniest part of most women’s bodies just under the bust. The front drape will also conceal a tummy if that’s important to you. The blouse is open on the bottom but you can wear a cami or tank underneath for more coverage. Also notable is the lightweight fabric AND the v-neckline and lapels are perfect for framing a pretty necklace. This top comes in 3 other colors and the black is back in stock (for now!) in just a couple of sizes. You’ll love the price too…it’s currently on sale for under $50!

#5) Paige Tie Neck Blouse

Another way to make your jeans outfit look a bit more elevated and expensive is to pair them with a striking jewel-toned silky blouse like this one by Paige.  It’s made of a smooth, flowy material that feels SO good on the skin. The banded cuffs give the sleeves a little volume, but not too much. This emerald green pretty much screams “fall” and “holiday” at the same time. It’s on sale and sizes are limited so grab one if you can!

#6) DKNY Bodysuit

Do you remember this top from my Grace Kelly Halloween post? This year I bought separates for my costume that I could also actually wear in real life. So, you bet I’ll be wearing this DKNY bodysuit with jeans this fall. I’m not sure what’s more flattering…the off-the-shoulder neckline OR the twisted waist. For me, some bodysuits are really NOT comfortable but this one is made of a beautiful crepe jersey fabric, and I’ve really enjoyed wearing it. It also comes in a pretty rose color!

#7) Veronic Beard Striped Top

This top is a more casual option to wear with your jeans this fall. It has so many cool details from the button sleeve to the funnel neck and…can we just take a moment for the flattering vertical stripes? 👌 It’s basically a twist on your classic striped button-down. I paired it here with white jeans, but it would look great with light, medium and dark-wash denim as well. You just don’t see details like this on a comfortable, cotton blouse all the time. It’s a standout piece!

#8) Cloth & Stone Wrap Blouse

This top is perfect for highlighting your waist and your shape. I know some of you don’t like to highlight the waist because you have a tummy. So with that in mind, this is a blouse that highlights the waist AND also hides a tummy…win, win! This Cloth & Stone blouse is paper thin, which makes it great if you’re experiencing hot flashes, but also great for fall because you can wear it on its own or layered under jackets. But what I really love about this top is the wrap front and drawstring waist combined with the mini peplum which makes it the perfect top for hiding a tummy! Wrap tops also tend to be a flattering option for women with a larger bust.

#9) Wayf Lace Top

If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you probably recognize this Wayf lace top because I have been wearing it for years. I love it! It’s just THAT good. But I’m not the only one…a few of our Busbee team members own it too….in multiple colors! It really elevates a pair of jeans. It comes with a removable nude cami but you could swap it out for your own. In the image above, I’m wearing it with a black cami underneath, and love the contrast. The best part? It’s under $90!

#10) L’Agence Lace Blouse

Along the same lines as the Wayf bouse in #9 is this lace, button-down blouse by L’Agence. The details are gorgeous! While some lace can be itchy this blouse is so soft and comfortable. But my favorite thing about it is the beautiful pink color. Worn with jeans this will add some pop to your look this fall. It’s a standout piece that makes a statement…so chic and feminine!

So which of these fall tops is your favorite? Are you wanting to see some festive holiday party tops that also go well with jeans?
