Sick of wearing the same outfit? We feel you.
As it gets colder winter can be a drag to dress up for. To make mornings less painful, let's rethink the easiest, no-brainer piece you have in your closet -- the skinny jean.
The denim staple is the one item you can effortlessly throw on without much thought, and you've probably been wearing it in rotation this season. The versatile jean can be worn for any occasion from day to night -- with a sweater, coat and boots for day or a flirty satin top and heels for night.
Thus, breathe new life to the beloved essential with of-the-moment styling tips we're copping from stylish celebs like Kate Middleton, Miley Cyrus, Gemma Chan and more.

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out looking outdoorsy-chic while visiting King Henry’s Walk Garden in London on Tuesday. Middleton opted for olive green skinny jeans (from Zara, no less!) instead of the usual blue. She paired with a matching tweed sports coat and lace-up combat boots for a monochrome result that's in the mood for chilly weather.
The newly hitched singer was adorable in the tried-and-true combo of fitted turtleneck and skinny jeans. Cyrus played off the light blue tone of her denim with a coordinating Dior logo knit and Prada satin-silk bag, but we love how she offset the look with stark white booties -- the shoe trend that's here to stay well into spring.
So cozy! The Crazy Rich Asians actress proved casual comfy doesn't appear sloppy. Topping off a soft sweatshirt and denim with a fluffy colored teddy coat elevates the outfit, which calls for a nubby beanie and cool-girl high-top sneakers for additional comfort and warmth. (Makes for a fantastic airport getup, too!)
We can always count on the Rose Inc. founder to put a supermodel off-duty spin on the skinny jean. A black silk blouse may be simple, but when accessorized with the right pieces -- pointed-toe slouchy boots, leather belt, chained cross-body bag and gold jewelry -- it can gussy up the wearable ensemble.
The mega-influencer is giving us every reason to break out our white jeans for winter. Keep with the theme by tucking a white tee and layering on a cream-colored ribbed cardigan for more coverage. Finish off with a brown coat to set the tone and neutral snakeskin lace-up booties to lend a touch of edge and texture.
