Jeans alternatives: These pants keep you warm in winter

Admittedly, we love jeans too. After all, you can't do much wrong with classic blue jeans. It gives us security and packs us warm in winter thanks to the thick denim. But sometimes it is just time to leave your comfort zone and bring new impetus to the daily parade of jeans. We show you five denim alternatives with which you can spice up your outfit creatively and definitely not get bogged down in the cold season!

Attention, stand still!

Whether in khaki, beige or even neon orange – we just can't get around military-style cargo pants at the moment. The functional sewn-on side pockets, the high fit and the casual cut are typical of the much sought-after trousers. Some new models now come with an elastic band and elastic leg cuffs – for an extra dose of comfort! The army / safari look is really round when you put the cargo pants in rough boots and combine them with other camouflage colors.

With a lot of momentum

We don't banish Marlene Dietrich's favorite trousers from our wardrobe even in winter. Heels are, of course, the perfect pair of shoes for long Marlene trousers that end shortly before the floor. Chunky platform sneakers also showcase the swinging trousers. The wide, flowing trousers always look super elegant – whether dressed up or down. Oh, and what we really love about her? The excess length of the Marlene pants just completely obscures what thermal measures we wear underneath!


Lederhosen keep you wonderfully warm in winter and also look absolutely stylish. The great thing about lederhosen? We are currently getting them in all possible cuts. Whether tight, with a paperbag waistband, as shorts, in military style, with a flared leg or 7/8 length – shops like H&M, Reserved, Zara and & other stories provide us with a huge selection! By the way, it doesn't always have to be black leather. Cognac-colored lederhosen look at least as elegant and bring variety to the otherwise monotonous parade of jeans.

Daily grind? Not with culottes

Do you only wear culottes in summer? None. The shortened leg of the culottes provides airy legroom in summer, but in the right combination it also becomes a style highlight in winter. To avoid the cold, we simply wear an opaque thermal tights under the wide skirt and combine it with a chunky knit sweater, thick winter coat and Chelsea or sock boots. If you prefer it sporty, wear warm tennis socks and casual sneakers with your culottes in winter.

Cord revival

Gone are the days when cord in the form of stale brown-beige blazers and knee-length skirts had a limited time. The iconic 70s fabric is currently celebrating a fashion revival and shines in new shapes and cuts. With its dense material, the corduroy pants are a perfectly warm alternative to jeans. Influencer Leonie Hanne knows that, too, who casually stuffs the ribbed trend trousers into snake skin boots, stamping the old-fashioned image of the cord into the ground.
