Welcome to #WhoWhatWearing, a series in which we highlight you, our stylish community of readers. Each of the following looks came straight from a photo you tagged us in on Instagram. Want to be featured next time? You guessed it: Use #WhoWhatWearing on the outfit posts you want us to see.

We love our denim and don't plan to part ways from it anytime soon (or ever), but let's face it, we all fall back on our favorite jeans quite often. They're the backbones of our wardrobe, but rely on them too much and they turn into a low-key style crutch, making it hard to be innovative with our style. To avoid getting into such a rut, we've taken it upon ourselves to inject your outfit rotation with a massive dose of newness for the season ahead, and our stylish readers are providing the combos to (hopefully) inspire you the next time you wonder what to wear instead of jeans.

What makes the ideal non-denim 'fit, you ask? Well, since we rely on jeans as the base to those brainless outfits, we sourced the same kind looks that are just as easy to throw on as jeans but will have you looking and feeling like you put in a lot more effort than you did. Thanks to effortlessly cool pieces like breezy smock dresses and on-trend trench coats, the following spring looks are about to save you so much time and effort when getting dressed.

Ready to screenshot these? Scroll down to see the six non-jean outfits we're into, and shop the pieces you'll need to re-create each one.

This spring, good old leggings are actually one of the trendiest things you can pick. Well, flared leggings, that is. We love them worn with a graphic tee and chunky boots like Sophia did here.

It doesn't get comfier (or cooler) than an oversize smock dress. The dress silhouette feels very current but is conveniently one of the easiest options. Make like Kellie did and pair yours with white sneakers.

Blazers are the trend that somehow always reads as polished. Throw one on with your leggings like Emili did with bright heels, and you have yourself a chic and of-the-moment ensemble.

One non-jean trend we're loving right now is loose, "grandpa" trousers, and as Aniyah is showing us here, a silky top and some strong accessories is all you need to give them a spring-friendly refresh.

A matching skirt set takes on a '90s vibe with mules and a shoulder bag. Copy Tamara's easy Parisian look with one of the (plenty) of matching sets currently on the market.

The essential transitional-weather trench coat is another trendy staple that we have saved to our "looks to try" folder. Renata cinched up the waist of her trench and wore it as a dress with polished accessories—genius.
