Must-Have Denim for Fall 2013

One of my favorite things about the fall season is getting back into my go-to jeans. That moment when all the retailers stock up on the latest denim trends not only makes me giddy for the best time of year but also truly is a symbol of the season change. Over the years we’ve been introduced to a fair share of denim trends, but this season my top three must-have jean styles are the traditional skinny jean as seen on Helena (left), the leather-like coated jean that Rachel (middle) is wearing, and the super comfortable boyfriend jean worn by Blair (right).

As we all know, jeans are one of the most versatile pieces in our closets. They not only serve a functional purpose (keeping us warm), but the perfect pair can be figure flattering and extremely comfortable. With so much variety in style, wash, color, and fabric, jeans can literally be worn for almost any occasion. You have the trusted skinny jean, that can be dressed up or down depending on the wash. Typically, a lighter wash is more casual and a darker wash is dressier. There’s the latest in denim, the coated jean, which have a leather-like look to them, providing the perfect amount of edge to even the simplest outfits. The great thing about coated jeans is they already have a bit of flare to them. You can dress them down with flats and a cable knit sweater and transition the same look to night by simply swapping out the flats for a heel. My final go-to denim trend for fall is the boyfriend jean. Hands down my pick for an easy, comfortable weekend look. But don’t be fooled, boyfriends can easily be dressed up with a pump and blazer for a night out with the girls. Talk about versatility!

No matter which style you choose, you can’t go wrong with these three denim options for fall.
