What to wear with jeans

I haven't been a great fan of jeans really but lost some weight over the last year and bought some GAP jeans which I wore during the summer with T-shirts and my birkies.
Went to put them on this morning and realise I don't seem to have anything which looks or feels right with jeans in the cooler weather. Long sleeve cotton tops are slightly too short and make the jean between waistband and crotch look too long. My jumpers and cardis are mostly shortish to sit slightly lower than waist with skirts so are too short with jeans.....I think. Strange gap between jumper and jeans anyway, showing section of cotton long sleeved top.
Do I need to buy more to go specifically to wear with jeans?

Buy some long waisted vests from Primark or Hennes to go under your tops. At least hip length, as they do roll up. Keep you warm too grin

Yep, a cheap and long shopping search is indicated.

I have tops that only go with jeans and some that only go with skirts. In fact most only look good with one or the other and definitely not with both. Am I strange?

I agree with the long line vests! I also like fitted shirts with my jeans like this
