I love my sweatpants and matching knit sets just as much as the next person, but recently, I've actually been enjoying stepping into my jeans again. They're such easy wardrobe staples, and once you have a few pairs in different cuts or washes, you can keep them on rotation to make plenty of no-brainer outfits. I'm not the only one who's been reaching for my jeans more than ever. After scrolling through Instagram, it's pretty apparent that the fashion crowd is pulling out their denim more than ever. Whether you're into wide-leg or skinny jeans (we don't judge here), there are plenty of styling options to choose from—so much so that it was quite difficult to narrow it down to the selection below from my favorite fashion girls.
If you've forgotten what it's like to wear jeans (I know I did), look no further than the outfit ideas below. Keep scrolling for added-in shopping inspiration featuring some of my favorite pairs of jeans right now. And don't fret. All of these outfits are still relaxed while being stylish and comfortable, so you'll still be feeling good while looking good.
Second-skin tops and jeans are a match made in heaven.
Who said you can't layer a blazer over your bra? Seems like a comfortable (and cool) idea to me.
A button-down over jeans is my summer staple, but this added corset takes the look to a whole new level.
While this may have started off as a casual tank-and-jeans fit, a sweater sleeve makes all the difference.
Relaxed jeans always look good with a pair of white sneakers.
Split-hem denim is still trending hard, equally as much as printed and cropped knits.
The '70s called—it wants its crochet back. But we're keeping it because it's the perfect spring and summer addition to our distressed denim.
Double denim is the uniform the fashion set just can't seem to get tired of.
A fun sweater and a bright-colored bag paired with a blazer and jeans are exactly what I want to wear this spring.
You can't go wrong with neutrals. Instead of your trusty black blazer, pair your light denim with a lightweight cream option.
Keep it simple and elevated for the warmer weather with a breezy top and your favorite skinny jeans.
There's so much I love about this outfit—the relaxed denim, the sage-green top, and the cow-printed heels.
