Statement-Making Jeans

Statement-Making Jeans

Before you allow the troll of Overwhelmed By Options (yeah, that’s his legal name) to hijack your fall shopping excitement, remember that fashion is supposed to be fun. All this trendy new denim may look high-maintenance—patterns and sheen and stray threads, oh my!—but this is going to be the best your legs have looked in years, thanks to whimsical prints, fun detailing, and looser fits.

Coated denim
If you want to gird your loins with cotton instead of leather, but still want that rock chick vibe, pick up a pair of coated jeans. The wet, waxy look adds an edge to your standard denim - and don’t worry about sticking with navy blue. Play with metallics or bright colors.

 
Patterned Jeans
We’re gettin’ busy with the floral, leopard, and polka dots this autumn. The florals of spring have darkened for fall and now feature bigger, bolder prints. If you’re a polka dot girl, you’re in luck. Some of the cutest jeans this season feature dots of all sizes. If printed jeans seem like an outfit choosing nightmare, just add a solid colored top. The brave souls among us can experiment with mixing prints.
 
 
Boyfriend Upgrade
Stuff your snug wide-legged jeans to the back of the closet, because the new trend is going cropped and baggy. But modernized boyfriend jeans can still be glam. Add some elegance to these rolled up pants by pairing them with super-girly heels. Bonus: showing off those trim ankles.
 
 
Colored Denim
Brightly hued jeans have been around since spring, but the fall colors are showing up on shelves as darker plums, burgundys, and browns. You may even be able to find a deep sapphire to usher in the autumn. Perfect with boots and a fun scarf.  
 
 
Destroyed Denim
If you’re a fan of deconstruction, you’re going to have fun shopping this autumn. Ripped and distressed, not-so-pristine jeans are hot right now. Pair shredded jeans with a polished shoes for a more balanced aesthetic.
 
 
Side-Panel Jeans
With a racing stripe that elongates the legs, side-panel jeans are a great way to add zing to an everyday outfit.
