I can’t even remember the last time I wore jeans. But what I do know, is it was definitely sometime in 2023. I feel as though there’s enough outfit dramas to deal with during winter (how many thermal layers is too many?) without adding snug jeans to the mix. While I’ve been avoiding wearing them out of the house, I have recently had a wardrobe clear-out where I tried on every pair of jeans I own, and gave any that don’t make me feel my best to my local charity shop. And let me tell you, it was a lot. I’m certainly in the market for a few new key styles–Agolde Pinch and Raey’s new collection are firmly on my wish list. 

Let’s just say, though, I’m in need of some inspiration for how to really enjoy wearing jeans again, which is why I have turned to some of the most stylish women on Instagram to provide easy to copy looks. If you’re in the same anti-jeans slump, I suggest you keep scrolling…

Style Notes: Proving that double denim isn’t just for the warmer months, Jessica’s hack of layering a cosy vest over a denim jacket is one not to miss. As an advocate for Agolde jeans, I love how she keeps her light wash pair casual with Adidas trainers (Samba’s, of course) and fuss-free accessories. 

This is Jessica’s actual jacket. 

And the actual jeans, too. 

We all know how quickly these sell out. 

And yep, you guessed it, the exact vest too. 

Style Notes: Weather permitted, ballet flats are the perfect accompaniment to baggy jeans. I’m a huge fan of Karina’s high/low look with the smart belted blazer and sparkly shoes. For extra cold days, just throw on socks and an oversized maxi coat. 

The quality is so good. 

These will work across all seasons. 

Because sparkles aren’t just for party season. 

To wear with every outfit, forever. 

Styles Notes: Yes, the colour of the season isn’t going anywhere, so now is still the best time to buy a red jumper. Going hand-in-hand with dark blue jeans, I’m going to copy this look with a jumper I just bought from the men’s section at COS. 

Leave slightly undone to show off your white T-shirt.

One of the best on the high street. 

These come fashion editor-approved. 

Baggy jeans look so good with fancy flats. 

Style Notes: Going for a tonal palette without being too, well, beige, can be tricky, but Lydia gives it a fresh feel by adding warmer brown tones in luxe suede. See, white jeans aren’t just for summer!

Come spring, you’ll definitely wear this with shorts. 

White jeans look best loose-fit. 

A new favourite.

Such a classic. 

Style Notes: For an off-duty ‘popping to the shops’ vibe, Lena shows how laidback cargo jeans are an easy win. I like how she has kept the look polished with a grey knit, leather jacket and fancy hand-held bag. 

You can never fail with a grey roll neck. 

Love the contrast stitching on this Ganni pair. 

For the minimalists. 

Instead of a hood.
