To get you ready for my favourite season of the year, we’ve already talked about the 10 new looks for fall/winter, and all major autumn trends regarding colours, accessories and even shoes, but what about denim, what kind of denim should you wear now?
If there is one staple we cannot live without, that's our beloved pair of jeans. Denim is the most practical and versatile essential item in our wardrobes; it looks good with any outfit, day or night. This fall, there are so many different denim trends that you will surely find an option or two you like, or, like in my case, you'll want them all!
Say goodbye to your skinny jeans; this fall straight-legged jeans are what you should wear. This silhouette is more polished, not to mention much more flattering. Straight leg jeans look great with tucked-in tops or cute cardigans. Finish your look with ankle boots or heels, if you're going for a chic outfit.
Wide leg jeans will make you feel as chic as Coco Chanel wearing her Palazzo Pyjamas. Since they are quite a statement, pair them with a quiet top such as a T-shirt and blazer or fitted knitwear. Flat shoes or platform shoes look best with this silhouette.
They are back, but this autumn, forget the Grunge look, you want to wear your distressed jeans in a polished, grown-up style. Pair your edgy jeans with elegant jackets and chic shirts for a cool office look, or wear them with opulent tops with sequins and feathers for fabulous party outfits.
After the crisp white jeans this summer, fall calls for a more subtle hue; off-white. Style it with a top and big coat in the same colour for a very contemporary look or pair it with some neon colour!
The most comfortable and effortlessly chic jeans are the ones that seem as if you'd worn them your entire life. But, unless you are a teenager watching TV at home on a Sunday afternoon, do not wear them with an old tee and sneakers, please. Dress up your lived-in denim with a perfectly cut and high-quality top and elegant shoes, complete your outfit with statement earrings or a golden chain with extra-large links for a polished yet relaxed look.
No matter whether mini, midi or maxi, denim skirts are an excellent option for women-on-the-go who like feminine, easy-to-wear and modern looks. Wear them with flats and thick tights or boots.
