We may still be basking in the sweltering summer heat, but the fashion editor inside of me is already thinking forward to the exciting fall season ahead, specifically to the trends and outfit combinations I should be planning now that will carry me through the upcoming months in utmost style.
One of the easiest ways to transition into the new season is with a great pair of jeans—preferably a classic pair of blue denim. Seeing as summer is really the only time when our jeans go on hiatus, so you can bet that we’ll be ready to break out our favorite pairs as soon as the weather starts to dip below 70. If, like us, you could use some fresh inspiration to fuel your fall outfits, you’ve come to the right place. Ahead, take a look at the below 11 blue jean outfits that are fresh for the upcoming season but still low-key and easy to re-create with many of the pieces you already own.
