Are you ready for Style Girlfriend’s second-annual No Jeans January challenge? Good. Us too. All month we’ll be throwing down the gauntlet: 31 days, no jeans, game on. Each week, we’ll focus on a jeans-free alternative and share daily outfit inspiration. What’s more? We’ll be rewarding a stylish reader every week who shares a non-denim selfie using #NoJeansJanuary on social media with #SGapproved swag.

A cool pair of slate chinos, a shearling denim jacket, and a striped sweater? Color.Me.Impressed. If that’s not enough of a selling point, let’s look to the utter ease of this minimal outfit. It’s a combination of basics that you’ll be able to wear in almost innumerable pairings without feeling too…basic. The kicker? You can pump up this simple style by reaching for standout accessories in bold colors or conversation-starting patterns.

Below, a can’t-miss casual chinos outfit:

Chinos: Billy Reid, $145 | Denim jacket: Saturdays NYC, $285 | Thermal tee: Old Navy, $17

Socks: Urban Outfitters, $8 | Shoes: Club Monaco, $325 | Beanie: City of Neighbourhoods, $38

Watch: Nixon, $175 | Gloves: Gap, $30 | Water bottle: S’Well, $25

Backpack: Rains, $90 | Hair cream: Jack Black, $24

WHY LADIES LOVE THIS LOOK:

“Sure, you can always slip into jeans on the weekend, but why not skip ‘em just once in favor of a chinos-anchored look that feels just as comfortable and shows your style doesn’t take time off? Topped with a striped henley and cozy accessories, you’ll be all over 2017’s biggest trend – hygge (it’s pronounced hoo-gah, and you can learn more about it here).”
