5 Ways to Wear Denim This Fall

Although denim ranges from light-washed to dark-washed and comes in a variety of different cuts and silhouettes, wearing jeans can still get boring pretty quickly. At the end of the day, they’re still just pants, meaning your look is somewhat limited. The good news is jeans are not the only way to wear denim. In fact, you may be surprised by just how many ways there are to wear this favorite fabric. You can find everything from great hats to chic purses, so it’s time to rethink denim. Here are five ways to wear it this fall.

1. Cap

What better way than to start with a faux shearling-lined denim hat? Stella McCartney’s warm and cozy cap is designed to protect your ears against the chilly breeze and can easily transition for winter. The leather ties help the cap stay in place and ensure a snug fit on days when you really need to combat the cold. For the fall, you can use these ties to pull the ear flaps back. It’s like two looks in one.

2. Overalls

Adopt this season’s hottest trend — overalls — for fall. M.i.h. Jeans’ full-length overalls are cut from soft Japanese denim that feels like a second skin around your body. They’re designed with flared hems to embrace 90s comeback trend, which you have to love. Style yours with a simple white T-shirt and trainers for a casual weekend. Toss on a leather jacket to toughen the look up a bit.

3. Jacket

Burberry Brit’s structured dark-washed jean jacket is a must-have. We love the muted copper accents that give it a worn effect. It’s designed with plenty of pockets to ensure practicality goes hand-in-hand with style. Since the cropped jacket hits right at the smallest part of your body — your waist — don’t be afraid to pair yours with a midi skirt or dress for a feminine silhouette. This also means it has a shorter shelf life as the weather cools down, so wear it while you can.

4. Dress

Denim can go glam just as well as any other fabric. Look no further than this Marques’ Almeida asymmetric dress, which is quite a statement. The frayed ends give it a dressed-down, casual vibe. We love the longer midi length, as the extra coverage will come in handy as the cold slowly but surely creeps up on us. Style yours with leather ankle boots and a cross body bag.

5. Purse

See by Chloé’s leather-trimmed tote has enough room to stow away anything you might need throughout the day. From work folders to a laptop to an extra scarf in case the temperature drops, you won’t have to worry about squishing a million things into a tiny bag again. The contrasting light- and dark-washed denim add dimension to the design. Sport this bag with a pair of trousers to make the denim pop.
