I think we're all beyond ready to trade in our shorts and rompers for jeans and jumpsuits. Denim is a universally loved item, and for so many of us, the coming fall means it'll soon be time for jeans, boots, and sweaters. That being said, denim doesn't need to be boring or start to feel like a fall uniform! Anticipate the coming season with statement denim that's as comfy as it is cool. These ten pairs should be on your fall shopping list, because your basic skinny jeans won't cut it every single day.
Start with flared jeans, a trend on the rise this fall. This pair from Forever21 are pretty easy to wear and basic, so if you're a die-hard wearer of skinny jeans, they'll ease you into the transition.
Once you've tested out the flared jeans waters, try an even-wider leg to balance out your fitted tops and make a statement. These super wide-leg flares from ASOS will do the trick.
The "girlfriend" jean which is basically a more fitted boyfriend, may sound like a dumb trend but is quite flattering and easier to wear than it's oversized counterpart. These jeans from Topshop have cool faded triangles that aren't visible from afar, but make a statement close-up.
These cropped flares from Nastygal are so in style, you'll be jealous if you don't get in on the trend. Think about how great they'll look with a turtleneck sweater and heeled booties!
Coated denim adds a luxe look to your comfiest jeans and t-shirt combo. This pair from ASOS is a cool color that goes with almost anything, and will look so much more work-appropriate (and bar-appropriate!) than your faded levis.
If you really want to make a bold move, upgrade your basic boyfriend jeans for an embellished pair. These sequined jeans from Topshop are the ultimate masculine-meets-feminine exaggeration.
These crazy cool double panel jeans from ASOS are as versatile as your dark and regular wash jeans, only it's a two-in-one situation. Wear them with a delicate blouse for a subtley quirky twist on your basic jeans and top uniform.
Who said culottes had to go away when the temperatures drop? These denim culottes from Zara are fall-ready and will ease you into the changing weather. If you're on the daring side, layer them over tights when it gets even colder.
It's denim meets the harem pant for these drop-crotch jeans from Forever21. Like boyfriend jeans, they pair well with simple fitted tops and heels, but fewer girls will be wearing the style, so you'll look truly unique.
Finally, these jeans with wild hems from Zara have the ultimate "accidental cool" look. The slight crop is perfect for wearing with booties and a chunky sweater, and are simple enough through the legs that the hemlines speak for themselves.
