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 like boot cut, and low waised. Although my figur is more like the girl w/ the high jeans

Loving the grey denim, its very rock star. I’m no stick figure so I stay true to bootcut or straight leg with medium rise. High waists look terrible on anyone shorter than 5’10 or bigger than a size 6, but super low rise is so over (and no muffin tops!)

This fall, I am very excited about the wide range of denim colors! I plan to buy skinny jeans in bright colors like teal and (maybe) fuschia that will pop against my summer tan.

I love all the denim options out there! It just proves that denim is a way of life. Grey, Skinny, High, Low…they can look great on anyone IF you know how to wear them. Keep at it People Style Watch!

I prefer mid-rise, boot cut or flared but I did buy a pair of skinny jeans last year because I have this hot pair of boots to wear with them. Colors, I don’t think so.

I agree Penelope’s jeans ROCK! We all want to know where to find them or maybe something close but cheaper.

i never would wear high-waisted jeans but i do like the flared out jeans and wear them all the time.

I’m a fan of mid rise dark wash to the ankle skinny jeans, I feel they work with pretty much every outfit (whether I’m going for a more dressed up, or dressed down look) & flatter my long, toned legs! =)

I love the new wide leg jeans. I have one pair but plan to buy more! I also really like the new colors jeans are coming in. I plan to buy at least one pair.
