Straight Leg Jeans

Straight leg jeans are a huge fashion story this fall — and a great alternative to skinny jeans, when you're not in the mood for body-hugging denim. Because straight leg jeans veer boyish in their vibe, you can easily pair them with super feminine separates — such as the off the shoulder blouse and flowered bag combo seen here — while still looking chic (not overly sweet). This is a great jeans look for date nights on warmer days this fall.

Dress up a casual outfit of straight leg jeans and an easy t-shirt by layering it under a classic camel coat for chillier fall days. Add a striped scarf, a cute bag and menswear inspired shoes for a cute fall outfit you can wear for city strolls and shopping with friends. Do keep in mind that a pointy toe shoe (whether it's flat or high heeled) is great for elongating your leg line in jeans, giving you an overall taller and slimmer effect, especially when you're wearing a wider hemmed jean.

We love this fall fashion outfit that you could wear just about anywhere you want to turn heads on cooler weather days.

The denim dress is everywhere for fall fashion this year, especially with a higher hemline.

High waist cropped jeans are a major women's fashion trend this fall — and the higher waistline is surprisingly flattering to almost every body shape. In a darker wash, they're also wearable for almost every occasion and event you've got on your plate this season. Here's a great way to wear these trendy jeans to work for a polished effect, styled with a chic tweed blazer and pointy toe flats. A cross body bag, or a sturdy leather tote, is a great addition to your outfit and adds to your professional vibe for the office.

You can create a cute casual outfit for cooler weather days this fall, when you wear this season's trendy high rise cropped jeans with a shorter jacket that ends at your waistline (why hide the signature feature of these jeans?).

Long over long is a stylish silhouette this fall — and a boyfriend-style, over-sized denim jacket is a closet fashion must.

How can you go about making a big denim jacket look chic this fall, when you're headed somewhere less casual? Here's an inspirational outfit for cooler weather, when you want to add a dressed down element to an otherwise polished outfit. We recommend wearing a big denim jacket with interesting details — such as this one, with trendy faux fur sleeves — over a sophisticated outfit, such as a streamlined black top and pants. Add a quality bag, sunglasses and heels, for an edgy-meet-chic fall outfit that you could wear to work, cultural happenings, impressing the other moms at school pick-up, and more.

Skinny Ankle Jeans

Skinny jeans look trendiest this fall when they end at your ankles. Put together a chic, fashionable look for the office on cooler days — or just impress your friends for stylish weekend outings — by wearing a dark wash, skinny ankle jean with a belted jacket or sweater. Cinching your waist with a belt over a cozy top is a great way to highlight your shape, while staying warm enough for cooler fall days.

One of the biggest fall fashion trends this year isn't the style of jeans, but what's on the jeans. Embroidery — from floral patterns to quirky fruits — adds something special to all the denim styles you already love. Here's a close-up of an outfit that fully celebrates this denim trend, by matching floral embroidered jeans with a flowered shirt in a similar pattern.
