Ready for something new? As you’ve heard by now, skinny jeans are a yawn-worthy option for fall style, so a pair of epic patchwork trousers, slouchy harem-inspired bottoms, or flare legs might suit you. After all, once the lower half of your ensemble silhouette gets interesting, it opens up opportunity to try new things on top, too (quilted denim jacket, anyone?). The Zoe Report is dishing on this season’s most sought-after trends. Yeah, mom jeans are in there too.

You’ve probably heard the buzz that skinny jeans are on their way out the door—whether you blame the activewear craze or a simple change of pace, it can’t be denied. We still adore a pair of tight-as-hell skinnies, but the industry and consumer general consensus seems to be that there are more creative (and chic) ways to sport denim this fall. We’ve provided a few options, too.
But what will you be wearing if you don’t wear skinny jeans once the weather turns crisp? Style.com suggests mom jeans as an option, and predicts their return in a big way—but they’re “not your mother’s mom jeans.” Stars like Miley Cyrus and fashion icons like Daria Werbowy are on-board, along with Chloë Sevigny and the always-flawless Jenna Lyons. Mom jeans are being paired with oversize designer belts, blazers, crop tops, and a classic red heel. Click through for serious some mom jeans inspiration.

Silicon Valley, home to engineers, innovators, and geeks that are changing the world as we speak, prefer a certain kind of uniform for their days of working on your next favorite gadget. What is it, you ask? Jeans!
Unzipped reports, “There’s a scene in the first season of HBO’s new comedy, Silicon Valley, wherein a fictional tech CEO describes the stereotypical organization of coding teams. And while he goes into some detail about the usual suspects of a coding group, we couldn’t help but notice a different common attribute: denim.
Indeed, denim makes more than a cameo in the HBO show, gracing the legs of not only the startup team protagonists, but also the tech titan Peter Gregory (played by the late great Christopher Evan Welch), who invests in them. And while Silicon Valley might be the funniest outpost to correlate denim with the tech world, it certainly isn’t the first.” (See the full post at Unzipped)

Update your denim look this summer with a cuffing technique you may not have tried yet: the single fold cuff. Honestly WTF spotted this trend everywhere around the world, but it’s making waves in NYC as women become more adventurous and stray from the skinny jean trend. This cuff works best on wider leg pants, whether stovepipe style or boyfriend. Will you be trying it?
Check out Honestly WTF for more images and inspiration, and be sure to check out our video on how to cuff your jeans.

Shredded denim is already awesome, but what if the denim was also as colorful as your favorite tie-dye tank top? If that turns you on, you’re in luck. It seems like, in addition to rainbow dip-dyed denim, dying destroyed denim fibers near the area of destruction is becoming a trend. We recommend going neutral with the top you pair this with: think black, white, or pastels. But hey, who says you can’t go totally nuts one night and pair these with a neon yellow bikini top?
