We’re always looking for ways to make our favorite style cues feel fresh, and we love when we stumble across a trend-setter who is doing exactl that. Style blogger Aimee of SwellMayde pairs her Levi’s Women’s 501 Jeans (grab a similar pair here) with a chambray button-down top and lace tank, creating a double denim look with a bit of elegance. In another look, she switches out the chambray for a super seasonal plaid shirt. See both looks below, and check out the original post for more images.

Destroyed denim is one trend that takes well-worn to another level. We typically wear our favorite jeans until they fall right off (though that rarely happens, as you know, thanks to Denim Therapy’s denim repair experts). But we also go for manufactured shredding when we want a particular look, stat. Done correctly, pre-destroyed jeans can be styled into a perfect outfit for early fall. And you’re in luck, because there are a few amazing options for sale on Nasty Gal right now. Quick! Grab these destroyed denim styles before the cold really sets in.

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.
