No matter who you are and what your personal style is, you’ve probably paired jeans and boots together at least a handful of times. In my case, this is my go-to combination come winter. Whether it’s flares with sock boots or straight-legs with chunky stompers, it’s a simple formula that never fails. 

We’ve hit that point in the year when the defining boot trends are taking shape, and we’ve already talked at length about 2023’s key denim cuts. It’s only natural, then, to start mentally inserting them into outfits. But you don’t have to rely solely on your imagination—Instagram’s best-dressed influencers have already provided ample inspiration.

One thing is for sure: This outfit formula certainly isn’t one-size-fits-all. We’ve seen smart interpretations featuring blazers and indigo denim, cosy styling where statement knitwear and lug-soled boots compete for attention, and everything in between. Six looks in particular have stood out to us—check them out below.

Style Notes: Together with wide-leg jeans and pointed boots, this is a look we’ll be wearing all year long.

An all-time favourite. 

This is a great Bottega dupe if you’re on a budget.

Oh-so seventies.

Pointed boots are taking over.

Style Notes: There’s no better option to keep you cosy than a quilted jacket. Ecru jeans will keep the outfit from feeling heavy, then opt for Chelsea boots for bonus comfort points.

The ultimate throw-on layer for colder days.

Such a chic shape.

M&S has nailed it once again.

Style Notes: Tap into your inner cowgirl with a pair of suede western boots, like Alice. Show them off by tucking in your jeans, then chuck on a neutral knit to balance out the statement styling.

A jumper you’ll treasure for life.

From the faded wash to the intentional distressing, everything about this pair is perfect.

These feel traditional but not costume-y.

Style Notes: Baggy jeans sit on the more casual side of the denim spectrum, but can be easily elevated with the right pieces—for example, a leather trench coat and sleek ankle boots.

It’s expensive for Mango, but that says something about the quality.

This cut comes in seven versatile washes.

Perhaps my favourite boots on the high street right now.

Style Notes: Jeans can look so polished when paired with a smart coat and sleek boots, as Anouk proves. A cable knit jumper helps keep you cosy too.

I love Raey’s knitwear collection this year.

I really rate Agolde denim.

A coat you’ll love and wear forever.

Just a really fab pair of high-street boots.

Style Notes: You can always count on Parisians to make a simple outfit look enviably chic. The pop of burgundy is a considered detail that makes all the difference here.

A new season is prime time to stock up on fresh basics.

I’m into this tapered leg.

Tuck this under ballooned jeans.
