Ankle boots, jeans, and a sweater—sound familiar? It’s most likely your trusty fall uniform. Believe it or not, there are actually other ways to style your jeans that don’t involve a basic sweater and simple ankle boots, and this season, we think it’s time to step outside the box and venture into oufit ideas like you never have before.

My favorite thing about each of the looks you’re about to see is that although the base of the ensemble is denim, the denim is the last thing you notice thanks to the exciting pieces it’s paired with. Between cow-print handbags and croc-embossed boots, I can guarantee that any of the nine ways to style jeans ahead will leave you looking anything but basic without having to try too hard.
