How To Style Classic Denim Silhouettes With A Twist For Fall

By Kate Marin

Every season has its selection of wardrobe necessities, but fall undoubtedly offers the best of them all: jeans. They’re one of fashion’s most timeless staples that, lucky for us, have been reinvented in endless styles, washes, and silhouettes. And even though they’ve been around the block, your favorite denim styles should never feel ordinary — especially when paired with unexpected tops and accessories.

In partnership with H&M, we’re sharing four simple ways to put a modern spin on the most stylish denim silhouettes — wide-leg, mom, flared, and boyfriend — so they’re sure to feel fresher than ever this fall. If a simple white tee just isn’t doing your denim justice, swap it out with one of our favorite H&M finds like a cozy knit sweater, a leather button-up, or a vintage inspired knit polo. Fall has never looked so good.

Laid-back Chic

For running errands on the weekends or heading to a casual mid-week meeting over coffee, a wide-leg jean is the perfect middle ground between style and comfort. This slightly-cropped style from H&M pairs easilly with your best knit sweater and a statement mini-bag.

Like Your Mom’s, But Edgier

A buttoned-up look doesn’t have to be boring or business-y — in fact, it can be just the opposite. With a great pair of vintage-inspired mom jeans like this slim-leg option from H&M, mix in a few modern business-casual pieces for a look that’s edgy yet totally professional.

Modern Retro

Almost fifty years later, there’s no denying that the ’70s brought forth some of the best denim styles around, and the flared jean is no exception. To style this iconic jean without getting stuck in a decade past, pair it with a soft knit polo, a polished blazer, and your favorite statement shoe.


Loose, But Luxe

For everything from work to travel, a comfortable pair of distressed boyfriend jeans offers endless versatility. With your go-to white tee or your best new trench coat for fall, there’s no easier way to flawlessly achieve an effortless casual look.
