5 Jean Outfits I Can't Stop Thinking About

I am in no way going to sit here and explain to you why jeans are a wardrobe essential. There’s a strong chance you’re wearing denim while reading this and are thus fully aware that your favorite style is critical in your rotation. That said, like any closet staple you wear on repeat, it’s easy to fall into a rut by pairing your jeans with the same outfit formulas time and time again.

To reinvigorate your blues, I’m sharing the five denim ensembles I’m high-key obsessed with right now for you to try. These are the ’fits I saved on Instagram and low-key go back and creep at when I need something fun and inspiring to look at. Keep scrolling to check out these five looks and report back if you test one out.

Sure, this look is simple in theory, with the jeans and white T-shirt, but it's that third piece—the longline statement jacket—that brings this ensemble to the next level.

Yep, pretty much just want to live in this combo with the graphic cable-knit sweater, cuffed plaid jeans, and flats.

If it's a denim-on-denim look you're interested in, here's my favorite of the moment, with the red turtleneck for a pop of color, a chain belt, and an oversize furry coat.

This is what I call a happy outfit due to the playful bursts of color, with the feathered sleeves on the coat and orange booties.

No, this isn't just another jeans-and–leather jacket outfit. Well, technically it is, but the details elevate the entire vibe. Here, I'm talking about the oversize leather jacket and the two-tone baggy jeans mixed with unexpected platform booties.
