Fall is all about the denim. Everyone should have a great assortment of denim for building a stylish fall wardrobe. It’s usually the foundation to any outfit, so you’re going to need options.

We’ve put together the styles everyone should have in their closet to a successful and stylish fall!

The skinny jean

This style has been around for several years and it’s here to stay.

I don’t know how many times we’ve heard people say, “you have to have skinny legs to wear skinny jeans.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. Skinny jeans are surprisingly slimming and makes you look put-together even if you are wearing a casual outfit.

If you’re still weary of the skinny jean, then go for a black wash to an even more slimming look. You won’t be disappointed!

Outfit: Paige skinny jeans, heels, flannel button-up

The boyfriend jean

If you’re in to baggy jeans, these are for you.

The boyfriend style is a relaxed oversized fit, usually with some destroyed details throughout. These are super casual, but you can easily dress them up with a pair of heels. These have become the new “it” jean that every stylish woman should own.

We wear them with T-shirts, tank tops and cardigans, flats, sandals or even ankle boots.

Denim jacket

A denim jacket is definitely a staple for fall.

It’s the perfect layering piece that will go over dresses, paired with skirts or even jeans and T-shirts. There are so many different washes to choose from, such as a super-light wash and sleek dark wash. There are even embellished denim jackets to add a little something extra to your outfit!


Flare jeans have a special place in our hearts. We are so glad they came back in style because they create an instant sleek and polished look that we love.

A lot of popular denim brands are creating stylish flares in so many different washes. We love the dark wash, but don’t write off the light wash because it can give you an updated retro look that’s still in style.

We style our flares with everything from sweaters to T-shirts to flowy tops. The trick to stylishly wearing the flares this season is to get the perfect length. This might involve getting them tailored a bit so they just barely brush the floor when you’re wearing heels with them.
