Style Guide: Falling In Love With Fall’s Hottest Denim

Fall In Love With Fall Jeans

A Brandista’s Personal Style Love Affair With Denim

 

Fall in Love with Fall’s Hottest Denim!

The one thing this brandista needs in her fall wardrobe is the perfect pair of  go to denim!  A great pair of jeans serve as the perfect base for most fabulous fall wardrobes. Nothing  replaces the feeling a brandista gets from slipping into her favorite pair of denim when they fit like a glove and feel fabulous.  This fall, skinny jeans are still going strong + there is a fab lineup of other flattering options.  If your personal style is anything like mine, your skinnies look great and feel comfy, but are ALL too predictable.  This fall, shake things up a bit and embrace the season’s hottest denim trends. Find out which personal style of jeans will offer you the most style inspiration.

1. Boyfriend Jeans

I can’t imagine life without my favorite denim of all time,  my “boyfriends.”  A great boyfriend is comfortable, sexy + ideal staple to dress up or down.  They boast a boyish, slouchy, relaxed fit through the legs and  offer a great contrast to your skinnies; boyfriends won’t cling around the waist  or legs like your skinnies. It’s clear why boyfriends remain popular season after season, they are super stylish with unlimited versatility.  Rock your boyfriends slightly rolled up  above the ankle with a rockstar stilletto. Or,  flaunt them with a basic tee, statement necklace + fitted blazer for alternate  chic look.

2. Throwback Denim

You can have fun wearing  retro jeans. Channel your inner Jane Birkin and slide on a pair that boast a flattering fit throughout the hips and thighs; and a moderate flare on the calves and ankles. Why not grab a  high-waisted pair with small  square pockets in the front for a classic look? You can easily wear your throwback 90’s  jeans with a  tailored button down or a fitted v-neck pull over. Consider adding a belt with a staple buckle + the perfect pair of suede pumps to complete the look. FUN +FABULOUS!

3. Fitted Capris

Think, your favorite skinny jeans merging with your staple boyfriends. You get the best of both worlds with fitted capris. These fall favorites sit slightly below the belly button and cling  throughout the body. With a hemline about an inch or two above the ankle, the fitted jeans are perfect for fall; especially while the weather is still warm during the day. They  give you just enough coverage when the temperature dips and you need to transition from an afternoon into evening. Most fitted capris  offer a distressed finish, making them easy to dress down with a pair of flats and a crisp, button down blouse; but they  also look amazing sleek with a pair of pumps and a structured knit.

Keep your personal style fresh by switching out your denim

 

So many jeans, so little time! Trust me, I’m not suggesting  you part with your coveted pair of skinnies. Just keep these posh pairs in mind while you’re on your next shopping excursion. Have fun trying a few of each cut on, and discover which pair looks and feel the best on you.
