If you had to quickly rattle off the top items in your closet, the ones you wear more than anything else, denim would undoubtedly rank pretty high up there, right? We don’t really need to go over the reasoning (we know you know), but the perfect pair of jeans can basically go with anything and make any ensemble feel that much more laid-back and cool.
But we get it. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, reverting to the same old denim outfit combo over and over again. Sure, you love your favorite pair of Levi’s 501s, but to pair them with the same T-shirt and leather jacket again? No. After all, variety is the spice of life, so why not switch it up?
To help infuse new life into your daily go-tos, we’re highlighting nine fresh ways the street elite are styling their blues this season. Keep scrolling for fall and winter inspiration. Plus, go a bit further to shop our favorite silhouettes of the moment.
Tuck your ankle boots under your jeans for a forward vibe that feels so uncool it's cool. Also note that if you have an interesting waist accents on your jeans, go for a top that's slightly cropped to show off the detail.
The denim-on-denim look feels fresh this season with on-trend Western accessories like knee-high boots and a novelty belt.
A baggier straight-leg style feels incredibly modern with unexpected pieces like a ladylike tweed jacket combined with combat boots.
If you're opting for the cropped jeans-and-sneakers vibe, embrace bold sneakers in a vibrant hue and coordinate your ensemble with an eye-catching jacket and top.
Make your favorite new jeans stand out even more with an asymmetrical knit and smart accessories like a box bag and pumps.
Sometimes simple works too (aka jeans, sweater, and sneakers), but don't be afraid to add a high-concept element like an off-the-shoulder bomber jacket.
Oversize shearling coats are all the rage right now. Pair yours with your go-to jeans-and-tee look and you're all set.
If you're on the hunt for a blazer look to wear with jeans on casual Friday, opt for a trend-forward top in an eye-catching animal print to make an impact.
When in doubt, pair your jeans (any style!) with unique outerwear silhouettes. We're particularly feeling the ensemble on the left with the belt and coordinating scarf.
