According to the Rachel Zoe report, contrasting colors are the hot trend in accessories and clothing this fall. From jewel tones at opposite ends of the spectrum to black contour trim on bright orange bags, you can’t go wrong when opposites attract. So how does this trend apply to shopping for jeans? Here are three ways to make it work.
1. Shop your closet. What’s in there already? If you have a ton of dark tops and cardigans, you can spring for a few gorgeous hues in denim (we love these Agatha Ruiz de la Prada mint green jeans) to mix and match with your darks this season. Half of the equation is already done!
2. Check the color wheel. What’s your favorite color? What’s the closest compliment? If you love royal blue, go for a rich burnt orange. If you love butter yellow, try a muted purple blazer. Be bold!
3. Dip-dye denim has all the contrast you need, right in one look! If you’re not into color this season, you can go for a dip-bleached denim piece instead. Or if you’re feeling crafty, you can DIY your own.

We all feel a bit defeated when we have to buy a size up, but if you want a pair of jeans to have the perfect fit, don’t stick to a number just because that’s the size you think you should be. Buy up or down as needed. Every line and style is cut differently, and no matter what “size” you end up buying, you will still look good, because it’s how the jeans fit that shows. Remember that no one sees the little size tab on the inside of the jeans except for you!
