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

·4-min read

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.

Shop the look:

Marks and Spencer Faux Leather Belted Shacket (£55)

H&M Microbibre Bra Top (£25)

Abercrombie & Fitch Curve Love High Rise Dad Jeans (£72)

2. CARDIGAN + RACER VEST

Style Notes: Imani serves up some of the best blue-jeans outfits around, and one of our all-time favourites has to be this one. Use pieces you likely already own, and shrug off the shoulders of your cardigan to give this combination a cool edge.

Shop the look:

Arket Alpaca Blend Cropped Cardigan (£69)

Gap Modern Tank Top (£10)

H&M+ Vintage Straight High Jeans (£18)

3. SUEDE COAT + EMBROIDERED BLOUSE

Style Notes: Retro outerwear is trending this season, with everything from fur cuffs to suede fabrications making a comeback. Handily, they all look excellent with—yep, you guessed it—blue jeans.

Shop the look:

Rixo Amilia Suede Coat in Tan (£525)

Meadows Foxglove Shirt (£128)

Nudie Jeans Breezy Britt Friendly Blue (£120)

4. CLASSIC KNIT + OXFORD SHIRT

Style Notes: Who knew the simple combination of an oversized navy jumper, a striped Oxford shirt and blue jeans would work so well? Sasha, that’s who! Sorry, joggers—this is precisely what we want to wear in our downtime from here on out.

Shop the look:

Kin Plain Chunky Funnel Neck Jumper (£69)

Balenciaga Stripe Oversized Shirt (£775)

Tu Es Mon Tresor Carnelian High-Rise Turn-Up Jeans (£325)

5. BOUCLÉ BLAZER + CHAIN BELT

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.

Shop the look:

Zara Textured Blazer (£80)

Missoma Oval Chain Belt (£269)

& Other Stories Favourite Cut Cropped (£65)

6. TRENCH COAT + WHITE SNEAKS

Style Notes: Trench coats will forever be one of team Who What Wear’s most beloved coats. Paired with blue jeans and classic trainers, no off-duty outfit that looks chicer than this.

Shop the look:

Massimo Dutti Trenchcoat (£189)

Arket Regular Cropped Jeans (£59)

FitFlop Rally Leather Tennis Shoes | Leather Trainers (£90)

7. DOUBLE DENIM + BASEBALL CAP

Style Notes: From Celine to Isabel Marant, countless designers showcased double-denim looks on the A/W 21 runways, making it a trend that’s impossible to ignore this season. Take your cues from Pernille, and pair yours with black accessories, like an offbeat baseball cap.

Shop the look:

Marks and Spencer Wool Baseball Cap (£15)

Isabel Marant Étoile Tania Lyocell-Denim Shirt (£330)

Zara Flared Jeans (£30)

8. WAISTCOAT + STRAPPY HEELS

Style Notes: Perhaps one for when you’re exclusively going to be indoors, take two of the year’s biggest trends—waistcoats as tops and loose, ripped denim—and what do you get? An outfit we immediately want to re-create.

Shop the look:

Raey Single-Breasted Wool-Twill Waistcoat (£295)

Hollister Ultra High-Rise Straight Jeans (£44)

& Other Stories Strappy Leather Heeled Sandals (£85)

9. CHECKERBOARD PRINTS + CHUNKY BOOTS

Style Notes: Fashion’s affinity for checkerboard prints might have started last winter, but it’s been building up to become one of the strongest looks of this season, too. With such a standout print—especially in coat form—blue jeans provide the perfect backdrop.

Shop the look:

Stand Studio Check Print Nino Coat (£579)

Reformation Cynthia High Rise Straight Long Jeans (£140)

& Other Stories Leather Chunky Sole Pull on Boots in Black (£165)
