With more denim options than ever out there, it’s hard for anyone to decide which ones to wear. Remember the days when bootcut in medium blue were our only options? These days, you can find your choice of fit — skinny, flared, bootcut, straight, wide-leg, and high-waisted — and the colors look like a Crayola box exploded. Now that the denim Pandora’s box has been opened, we’re seeing everything from skinny to wide-leg. But with denim prices what they are, how many pairs can you try out each season? For fall, we’re pretty excited about newest flared styles which a slight variation on our favorite bootcut and jewel-toned denim looks just right for the cooler weather. But we want to know what denim you’re stocking up on! Tell us: Which of the newest jeans styles are you most excited about? Which ones will you never try?

I’m excited about higher rise jeans coming back but I dont think I would wear any like Ciera. I know I definitly will not wear any color jeans or skinny. I know that bootleg and wide leg style jeans works for my curvy shape. I love the style of jean in the middle picture what can I get them?

HHMMMM….My favs are low-rise flare or boot-cut…and I love jeans w/ cute pockets that flatter the butt—but it’s really hard for me to find those in longs….so I stick to the classics….and i love love love buckle jeans!;)

…btw: really like Penelope’s jeans here…

As a 40yo mom of 4 with the bottom half to prove it, I like to wear Mid-Rise Straight leg, or a pair with a slight boot cut. Those look best on my body and since I am running around after those 4 kids, they are also the most comfortable. I don’t have to worry about cracks, wedgies or my favorite pair of lacies coming over the waistband.

I just LOVE jeans all together! BUT, if I had to pick just ONE i’d definately say Skinny jeans.
They totally fit perfect & they go great with a pair of nice stilletos.

Definitely faded hip-hugging jeans. You`d never catch me wearing high waisted jeans. And different colors of jeans??? What ever happened to just a traditional pair of jeans? Embroidered jeans, maybe. But colored? I don`t think so.

I’ll never wear skinny jeans, they’re not flattering on me. I’ll stick to the low-rise boot cut ones like the lovestory from J Brand

I prefer something classic, straight leg, mid-rise. That will never go out of style.

I’m loving the wide legged (but not high-waisted) jeans right now – they look so good on most people. Such a nice change from skinny jeans, which only flatter a limited number of body types. I’m not a fan of the bright coloured jeans – it’s like the worst of the ’80’s have returned. What’s next – mullets?
