If you live in denim like I do, you’ll want to check out the jeans outfits I’m planning to repeat for the season ahead. I’m always looking for ways to breathe new life into my denim looks, so I perused Instagram for fresh inspiration. There are so many great transitional outfits that fashion insiders are wearing, and the best part is that they require only a few simple styling tricks.
Ahead, there are outfit ideas that are sure to fit into your fall wardrobe, whether you’re interested in a simple look that adds in trendy basics like a baseball hat and crisp button-down top, or you’re inspired to wear something of-the-moment like printed jeans or a denim crop top. Here, see nine fall outfits with the best jeans that already have the fashion-insider stamp of approval, and shop each of them for yourself.
If you're looking for a great transitional look, stick with the crop top you've been wearing over summer and add a trench coat on top.
You can't go wrong with a sleek button-down top. Jazz it up with a fun bag and a sweater.
Baseball caps are an accessory that I've been wearing more than ever recently. Add one to a simple jeans outfit to achieve a cool sporty look.
Oversize button-down shirts are the summer basic that you should definitely hold on to for fall. Pair one with jeans and basketball sneakers.
The vest-top trend is taking off for fall. While I've mostly seen it worn with tailored trousers, adding a pair of printed jeans is a cool styling idea.
With a sweater-vest
Twenty-twenty was the year of the sweater vest, but fall is coming, and it's time to bring them out again. Style yours with straight-leg jeans and a tank or button-down underneath.
Yep, another button-down outfit. The basic is such a key staple, and I love how many different ways you can style one. This black-on-black look is so chic.
A leather jacket instantly pulls together any jeans look. This one is styled with casual Converse but would look equally cool with heels.
