9 Chic Jean-and-Shoe Combos From Kate Middleton, Priyanka Chopra, and More

We can't imagine a world in which jeans aren't a staple in our weekly wardrobe rotation. Skinny, kick-flare, wide-leg—if it's denim, we'll take it. But sometimes even our basics need a little refresh. And when we're in need of a little inspiration, we look to the stars (celebrities, that is).

Celebs have a knack for turning casual wardrobe pieces into a glam 'fit we want to re-create ASAP. With the entire fashion catalog at their fingertips, it's important to note that these ladies choose to not reserve denim just for the weekends. They're as comfortable making a statement in bootcut jeans as they are in a ball gown.

So the next time you're ready to up your denim game, try some of these chic jean-and-shoe combos below. We promise you can always default to your tried-and-true sneakers another day.

Once you're done fawning over Priyanka Chopra's multicolored plaid coat, you'll notice her outfit underneath is quite simple: a white baby tee, straight ankle jeans, and a pair of boots. But it's the boots' sneaky architectural heel that put this tried-and-true outfit a step above the rest.

We may not be able to cop Margot Robbie's cute Chanel cardigan, but we can cop the rest of her look. Here, she complements her denim gauchos with everyone's favorite summer trend: a strappy heel.

We love the idea of two-tone denim making its way back in. Kendall Jenner keeps the statement-making jeans in the spotlight by selecting a simple pair of black mules.

There's nothing better than being introduced to an entirely new outfit idea. Gigi successfully combines a cropped suit jacket with a pair of high-waisted, wide-legged jeans, and pointy pumps. We're already making plans to attempt this on our next Friday out.
