9 Expensive-Looking Winter Outfits to Wear With Jeans

I honestly don't know what we'd all wear in the winter if denim ceased to exist. It's simply essential and is the perfect match for all of those winter-friendly items like coats, sweaters, and boots. It's also universally loved, so there's a steady stream of examples of stylish women wearing incredible winter outfits with jeans.

Even though jeans are the most basic of basics and can be very affordable, they needn't actually look cheap. I scoured street style from the past year in search of the winter jeans outfits that look ultra-expensive, thanks to a smart styling trick here and there. What does or doesn't make an outfit look expensive isn't a scientifically proven fact, but I have a well-trained eye for these sorts of things, so keep scrolling to learn nine tricks of the trade and shop the looks.

Try Faux-Fur Outerwear

Unlike real fur, good faux fur can often be quite inexpensive and does wonders for dressing jeans up and making them look luxe. Not to mention, it's also great for keeping you extra warm in the winter. You can try an all-over fur style or just fur-trimmed.
