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 love the jeans…well, and the whole outfit Cameron has on in the Startracks photo titled LATE ARRIVAL (After spending time in Los Angeles earlier this month, a relaxed Cameron Diaz returns to the East Coast, making her way through John F. Kennedy Airport Monday night).

Tell me where to get it all!!

Right now I love dark washed straight-leg jeans. They look great with flats and boots and they have a modern feel without being too trendy.

Super low rise, dark or light blue boot cut. Always. Although I did get my fair use out of my dark abercrombie skinny jeans and boots last fall.

Since I already owned a few pairs of skinny and straight leg jeans, my fall denim splurge was a dark wash, medium rise trouser style with a widerleg that doesn’t (I hope) overwhelm my smaller frame.

I’m tiny so the high waisted thing does nothing for me but make me look oddly proportioned. Likewise with the wide leg look, never mind the fact they are always 5 inches too long. Nope it’s skinny jeans for me. They make my legs look longer and create curves I don’t have.

I love Penelope Cruz’s pants in the above pic, what brand are they?

I like all styles!!! Girls if your small breasted the HIGH WAISTED jeans are awesome for making your legs longer and your mid-section look curvy, just what women want and … not to mention what guys love.

I love boot cuts and straight leg in a dark wash. I love skinny jeans (in a dark wash), but the fit has to be just right. In fact, right now, it’s “the darker the wash, the better!”
