Beyoncé and Jay Z, Mary-Kate and Ashley, peanut butter and jelly… Some things are just better when they come in pairs—jeans and sneakers included. There's arguably no other combo that's as timeless, but celebrities always manage to put fresh spins on jeans and sneakers. Hailey Baldwin, for instance, is a proponent of the super-baggy denim trend (which Jennifer Lopez is also a fan of) paired with Nike Air Force 1 Sneakers ($100)—an outfit combo that's ripe for copying.

On the other hand, the likes of Meghan Markle and Ashley Graham are carrying the flag for skinny jeans. Markle wore hers with another Hollywood-favorite pair of sneakers (with a vegan, sustainable twist): Adidas Stan Smiths designed by Stella McCartney. Graham also loves designer sneaks, as evidenced by the sleek Common Projects trainers she owns. Scroll down to shop the six classic sneakers celebrities always wear with jeans.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
