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 planning on wearing the dark skinny jeans with a flowing tunic top this fall. I think the look is sexy and girly and awesome for dressing up or down. I’m also willing to try the different colored jeans, like red, green, or gray. Can’t wait to be a trendsetter!

definitely not high waisted because even Ciara looks bad in them and she is gorgeous. but I like flare or skinny but not colored!

Casie C. on

I am really excited to wear wide leg jeans, especially with platform wedges. I am not too excited about the high wasted version, I’ll still to my low-rise variety.

Fabio on

Boot cut and hipster jeans.
American Eagle jeans are the best

I have hips and a butt like beyonce so I really think the flared jean look looks better on me and plus it accentuates my beautiful assets

Beth on

Pleeease help me find Penelope’s jeans!!!

I never liked the skinnies, but I tried on a pair in cobalt blue with a boatneck top and some flats and it looked pretty chic. I’ll give them a try. I’m not a fan of the high waisted. I think it makes the booty look too long and wide. The bootleg or flares are always a classic!

I normally don’t think that skinnies look that great, but they are very flattering to me. I am very short and they make me appear taller and leaner. They are too much on taller women. High waisted looks retro mom and colored denim is 80’s. I do wear black denim, however, and many shades of blue.

The jeans I tend to get the most compliments from are Abercrombie and Fitch’s Emma cut jeans (low rise, boot cut). They are my favorites, and I’ll be splurging on two more pairs in a super dark and medium wash for the fall.

People pleeeease tell us who is behind Penelope’s jeans?? They’re a great cut!!

nevin on

the flare is a no-no; the colored one is super cute but yet i probablly wld get it in black or white and the high waist is totally cute!:)
