Fall Must Haves: Denim for Days

According to Rachel Zoe, August is the unofficial denim month. I actually think it’s September, and has a lot to do with Back to School and all the new product arriving in stores.   Whether dressed up with heels or  paired with a pair of boots, denim is an essential for me. Given September is a few days away, there is no time like the present to scour the collections and shop for a few new pairs. I’ve done some diligence, and I’m happy to share what I think are the best new styles for fall.

The skinny jean is the silhouette of the season again. Dark washes will always be a classic and look great with almost everything, but greys or distressed washes are a fresh update in addition to the blues and blacks. DL1961 is my go to for a great pair of skinnies, offering an amazing fit with an incredibly comfortable fabric that feels more like a legging than a jean.

The boyfriend jean is turning out be another big trend this season, but with some good updates in shape and detail. It can be a good casual transition jean before the weather really turns. Stay away from the overly distressed, ripped or baggy styles, instead opt for a pair with a dark wash, minimal distressing and a small cuff. This style is great with short boots for casual or with a streamlined heel for a bit of juxtaposition.

The moto jean is my favorite “novelty” style for fall. Look for details in the zippers and  piecing of fabric to get just the right amount of edge for an everyday look. I like these best in black, grey or dark neutrals this season.

The coated jean is the perfect alternative to a leather pant. Whether in a matte finish or high gloss sheen, it pops up even the simplest of sweaters, and is great day to night.

Check Nordstrom or Shopbop for the best selections this season.

Happy Shopping!
