They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but we disagree. Black skinny jeans (aka the "old dog") have been in our closets for forever, but when styled with of-the-moment square-toe boots à la Priyanka Chopra's, they suddenly take on a very brand-new feel.
Kate Middleton blessed us with this perfectly polished ensemble before knee boots became as famous as they currently are, which I'm pretty sure makes her a visionary. Regardless, this is a sophisticated look to try ASAP with your favorite denim—for work and beyond.
On Kate Middleton: Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini blazer; Aquatalia by Marvin K boots; Aspinal of London Mayfair Croc Bag ($775); Kiki McDonough earrings
Kate made her casual ensemble really pop by going for a rich burgundy sweater and tying a printed silk scarf on top for a charming touch. Re-create the look with a light jacket, combat boots, and colorful knit.
On Kate Middleton: J.Crew sweater; Barbour jacket; Scout UK scarf; Chloé boots
J.Law's easy denim outfit is one to keep in your back pocket for reference when you're zapped of inspiration. She slipped on a pair of low-heeled mules and topped off her editor-favorite skinny jeans with a printed Prada coat.
