Style Guide: Fall Denim Trends

See our favorite denim trends for fall

The month of fashion isn’t over yet, ladies. Fashion Week has come and gone in the blink of an eye, but there’s still room to be excited about fall fashion. One trend that has been dominating the scene this season has to be denim. And I’m not just talking about your decade-old pair of blue jeans. This month alone has proven that great denim comes in all shapes, sizes, textures and hues. There’s so much more variety than just skinny and boot cut jeans. Embellishments, undone hems and patchwork are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to trendy and unique denim.

Since there are so many denim trends on my radar, I thought I’d pull together 10 looks that I’m currently loving for my own closet. 10 may seem like a lot, but trust me when I say that you’re going to fall in love with these pieces too. When you get to the bottom, make sure to leave a comment letting me know which trends you’ve already added into your wardrobe and which ones you can’t wait to try!

Fall Denim: vintage denim jackets

1. Vintage Denim Jackets

A sturdy denim jacket will never go out of style, especially when it’s a little rough around the edges. This season I encourage you to find that perfect worn in denim jacket that will last you for years to come. Patches and embellishments are always welcome!

Fall Denim: embroidered jeans

2. Embroidered Denim

One denim trend that I’m particularly smitten on is embroidery. I think an embroidered floral detail on a pocket or down one of the legs is sweet and feminine with a little bit of edge.

Distressed denim will always be my go-to. I’m happy that distressed denim in all washes and silhouettes is on trend this season.

Denim shirts

4. Oversized Button-Up Shirts

My uniform on most workdays has to be a button up chambray shirt. They’re versatile enough to get you through just about anything, including the dropping temps that are just around the corner.

Fall Denim: flares

5. Flared Denim

One way to make your stems look even longer is a good pair of flared denim. The ‘70s are back this season and it’s time to embrace it!

Raw hem denim

6. Raw Hems

There’s nothing wrong with looking undone here and there. Raw hems give jeans a little something extra. Believe it or not, you can achieve this look by taking a pair of scissors to any regular pair of jeans.

 Patchwork denim jeans

7. Patchwork Denim

Something about patchwork will always remind me of fall. Lucky for us, this denim trend is right on point for the coming months. There’s no better way to mismatch your denim.

8. Cropped Flare Denim

It seems like I’m seeing cropped flared denim just about everywhere this season. This silhouette is perfect to wear with your favorite fall booties. My personal favorite is a high-rise pair like these ones from Anthropologie.

Denim skirt

9. Denim Skirts

I’m not going to lie, the denim skirt trend has me reminiscing on my high school days. Step up the sophistication this season with longer lines and a higher waist.

Fall Denim: denim dresses

10. Denim Dresses

Last but not least we have the denim dress. This look compliments all figures and can easily be taken up a notch by adding a belt at the waist or wearing some over-the-knee boots.
