·3-min read

As much as we'd like to stretch out the bare-leg weather we've been having, we're just a few weeks away from the forecast feeling very autumnal. To prepare for the inevitable cold snap, instead of floaty dresses and slip skirts, we'll be building our looks around jeans, for there is no item more up to the challenge of swiftly transitioning you into the new season.

After all, jeans are timeless, easy to style and comfortable, and the outfit options are endless, making them the perfect day-to-day throw-on. However, if you feel like your denim ensembles are becoming a tad repetitive, we're here to help break you out of your rut.

We've found seven perfect casual outfits with jeans that will help you think outside the box. From the coolest ways to wear this year's loose-fitting denim to the wardrobe staples that always look great with jeans, we promise these outfits will keep you satisfied for months on end. Scroll below to see them and to shop any pieces you might need a refresh on.
