Bare-Leg Season Can Wait—Try These Stylish Spring Jeans Looks Instead

Okay, so it's sunshine one minute and freezing rain the next, but that's the British springtime for you—completely unpredictable. But don't worry, for we've found the transitional solution to your current outfit woes: spring denim.

Jeans are timeless, easy to style, comfortable and, most importantly, actually pretty cosy, so it makes sense to plan a handful of chic spring jeans outfits that you can throw on at a moment's notice when the weather proves changeable or you plan on spending extended periods of time outdoors at the mercy of the elements. Better yet, we’re pretty sure you’ll be able to assemble such looks with items you already own. 

From edgy leather shirting to stylish cardigans, the following spring jeans outfits will satisfy your fashionable needs until baring your legs becomes a feasible option. Scroll below to see them and, should you need to, shop the staples to re-create them.

The T-shirt is made from a thicker fabric, so it's ideal for those chillier spring days. 

Gold hoops remain a fashion-person favourite. 

Barrel-leg jeans are big for 2022.
