Let me guess. You live in your skinny jeans year round and have come to think of them as the base to any and all of your casual outfits. Despite the fact that the denim trends of the moment are leaning in the exact opposite direction of skinny jeans (some are calling them "anti–skinny jeans"), we know that there's still a place in your wardrobe for the classic denim style. I mean, let's face it: They won't be going anywhere soon. Now that we have that settled, let's talk fall/winter outfits.

The one combo you're bound to wear endless times from now till April involves a sweater and skinny jeans. So, I took it upon myself to pull the coolest versions of the outfit on all of Instagram to serve as my inspiration for the coming months. You see, it's a relatively simple combo, but I often find myself searching for ways to add style to it. Which shoes should I wear? Which color sweater looks best with the jeans? If you ever find yourself wondering the same things, the below outfits should serve as your ultimate winter wardrobe inspiration.

From the bright, chunky knit sweaters NYC girls are wearing to the simple cardigans that the French just adore, go on to see the sweater-and-skinny jeans outfits you'll want to try, and then shop the pieces to achieve each look.

Balance out the streamlined jeans with heavy-duty combat boots and a slouchy sweater. For an extra layer, top it off with a printed jacket.

Style an oversize knit in a cheerful, bright color with your skinny jeans and then finish off the look with a fresh pair of white ankle boots—a Western pair to make it all the more on trend.

This is how to wear white skinny jeans even in the winter. With a neutral cable-knit sweater, the look is simple but sophisticated.

I can't get over how cool the look of pointed-toe mules and split-hem jeans is, so I'll be trying to copy the same effect of this sweater-and-jeans outfit.

What are all the cool girls on Instagram wearing with their jeans these days? Cardigans. The classic sweater has made a triumphant return, and I particularly like the way it can be styled tucked into high-waisted skinny jeans the way María Bernad did here.

A simple cardigan and knee-high boots are how French girls will be wearing the outfit throughout the winter.

Wear a thin turtleneck to highlight jeans that have an interesting detail to them, like a button fly or fun print.
