If Your Blue-Jeans Outfits Need a Refresh, Here Are 9 Cool Looks to Try

Blue jeans—where would our wardrobes be without them? We dread to think. No item in your wardrobe is as hard-working and versatile as blue jeans. You can wear them for everything from shopping trips to brunch, walks in the park to weekend cocktails. But still, our reliance on them can sometimes mean we take them for granted and don’t give them the same love and attention as we do other items on our outfit roster. We simply throw them on without giving them so much as a second thought. Well, no more!

To stop them from becoming stagnant—particularly in the colder months when we wear them as frequently as we do jumpers—we’ve found nine blue-jeans outfits that will help you truly appreciate them and unlock their full style potential.

So whether you’re looking for new ways to freshen your look for the season ahead or simply want some insight into how to wear them now, continue on to fill up on all the blue-jeans outfit inspiration you could ever need. 

1. LEATHER SHACKET + BRA TOP

Style Notes: Blazers and bra tops have been dominating the best part of 2021, and even as we head into the colder months, they’re not going away. However, instead of lightweight blazers, follow Javi’s lead by styling a cropped bralette with a leather cover-up—and blue jeans, of course.

Style Notes: Tweedy and bouclé jackets have the power to elevate anything you wear them with—including blue jeans. This look is just the sort of thing to wear to dinner and low-key drinks (which inevitably turn out to be the funnest nights out of them all). Thanks, Jen, for the inspiration. Although the chain belt is optional, we highly recommend incorporating one into your look.
