The Best Sweater-and-Jeans Looks to Try for Fall

After a scorching summer where sundresses, midi skirts, anything and everything rendered in lightweight linen, and, of course, crisp white jeans were necessary parts of our daily outfit equation, it’s officially time to start making the seasonal wardrobe switch. While that doesn’t mean stowing away all of your warm-weather essentials, it does mean it’s time to unpack all your fall favorites—we’re talking oversize cardigans, boots, and sweaters because these will be your new go-to pieces for the next six-plus months.

One of the easiest, coziest, and most versatile of ensembles to wear during these cooler months? A classic sweater-and-jeans outfit because it's a two-piece look that takes minimal effort to piece together but will always look, well, put-together. Right now, trends are swaying into the oversize territory. One of our favorite sweater-and jeans looks? A loose-fitting, baggy knit paired with a pair of equally loose-fitting jeans. Ground the ensemble with sneakers (or boots), and you have casual-cool look that you’ll comfortably be able to wear all day.

To help you get some more ideas in the realm of sweater-and-jeans outfits, we rounded up some of our favorites below, as seen on some of the coolest fashion girls around. Ahead, see the looks we’re loving, and then shop the sweaters we’re coveting for fall.
