As someone who lives in jeans year-round, I’ve found it not just helpful but crucial to update my stockpile of items that pair well my beloved denim each season. After all, as hard as it is to part with your favorite summer sandals or light spring jacket, it’s even harder to get dressed when you don’t have the right clothing for cold weather at arm’s reach, so making the switch is more-than worth it—trust me. So just what am I pairing with my jeans on the daily this season? Quite a bit, actually. From statement coats to chunky boots, just keep scrolling to see, read about, and, of course, shop the six pieces you definitely need to own if you’re not planning on giving your jeans a break this winter.
