12 Outfits to Try If the Only Pants You Wear Are Jeans (Yes, Even Skinny Jeans)

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.

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.

You can't go wrong with neutrals. Instead of your trusty black blazer, pair your light denim with a lightweight cream option.

There's so much I love about this outfit—the relaxed denim, the sage-green top, and the cow-printed heels.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
