Your denim lookbook for a cozy fall aesthetic

It's officially that time of year again: The summer swap from denim shorts to longer denim classics is back in session. These cozy-approved denim pieces have got your back all fall long...

The maxi denim skirt of your dreams


The return of Y2K has brought us one of our must-have items atm—denim maxi skirts. This fab, full-length piece is the perfect mix of fall picnic with the girls and lazy day in a coffee shop reading your fave book. Add an off-the-shoulder long-sleeve or sweater for a cozy, chic look.

Sweater, $98, Madewell | Skirt, $50, Mango 

The Sherpa + Denim combo


Sorry, did someone say puffer season? It's time to wave bye to that neutral puffer and say hello to your new, breezy fall BFF. This denim puffer vest is lined with fluffy white sherpa for all those comfy feels. (If vests aren't really your style, try a jean jacket lined with sherpa.) Pair with some flared leggings to rock a jean-inclusive look with the comfort of a lounge day essential. Looking to double up on denim (bc yes, denim on denim is *so* in)? Just throw on a pair of dark-wash jeans for a color-block moment!

Vest, $70, American Threads | Jacket, $90, Levi's | Leggings, $25, Aerie | Jeans, $50, ZARA | Top, $12, Cider

The straight-leg jean staple


Picture this: a totally Cher Horowitz fit, but make it autumn-inspired. Yep, this denim cozy look is so giving Clueless meets fall. A straight-leg jean is an easy way to add a little denim into your fall OOTD without feeling like you're overly dressed up. For an even cozier look, pile on a crewneck sweatshirt with a plaid blanket scarf.

Jeans, $41, Hollister | Shirt, $35, GAP | Sweater, $21, Amazon

Head over heels for overalls


Brb, crying over how cute these overalls are. Aside from being an easy-to-wear outfit, overalls allow you to thow anything underneath to fit your perf cozy aesthetic. For our cable-knit casual kinda girls, you can throw a bright sweater underneath for those chillier days. Into turtlenecks? A warm-tone turtleneck (like orange, white, black or light brown) and blue overalls are an autumn classic.

Overalls, $52, Hollister | Turtleneck, $40, Aritzia
