Starting with a trench coat as your base, try a bright colored shirt and colored jeans to offset against the khaki. Fun statement jewelry or a cross body bag completes the haute commuter look.

This fall, pointy toe shoes are back! So, how do we style them with our jeans? According to Glamour Magazine, a fashion DON’T is to wear fall’s pointy toe pumps with your wide leg jeans. Instead, pair your cute metallic or printed pointy footwear with cropped jeans. Whether you agree with this style point or not, do note that cropped and skinny jeans allow you to better show off the straps, such as the Alexander Wang Tati Lizard Print pumps with strappy details, and cut-out details such as the 3.1 Philip Lim Kadie Booties, by not draping over them. And while you’re at it, take a look at a few pairs of skinny and skinny cropped jeans we’ve set aside for you.

Mandinka, a fashion label from Tel Aviv, Israel, features a majority of their streetwear separates paired with jeans for their Fall 2011 lookbook. Upon further investigation, there were no jeans offered in this collection. It’s puzzling that a brand would do that, but it’s further proof that jeans look great with just about anything, whether it be Mandinka’s leather cropped hoodie, high-low hemmed sweartshirts or track suits reminiscent of Stella McCartney’s Nike collaboration. Having said that, the brand’s chic streetwear separates are both built for comfort and the discriminating feminine city dweller.

The tip here is giving a little twist to the t-shirt that you pair with the jeans!

So when you’re stumped trying to figure out what to pair your favorite denim with, break out that daring top you’ve been dying to wear and work it!

Searching for the perfect t-shirt to rock your fall denim with? We’ve got the answer! And it’s designer Aimee David, better known as the Queen of E.vil (don’t worry, it sounds way more goth than it is). Be sure that once you don one of her semi-sparkling, pop-color, audacious tops and pair them with your jeans, from acid wash to dark wash, you’ll be fashion royalty yourself. Witty, inspiring, exciting… we love this line! And we got the behind-the-scenes scoop for you in this Q&A…
Denim Therapy: Let’s start from the beginning. How did you know you wanted to be a designer?
Queen of E.vil: I always liked to standout- in high school I was voted most original- I loved concepts and graphics and color combinations.
DT: Do you have any pre-designing rituals?
QoE: Just to live my life authentically; To let life give me sound inspiration.
DT: Describe the person that represents your ideal target customer.
QoE: Someone who has a voice- or wants to connect with new and interesting people through fashion statements.
DT: Do you have any favorite/least favorite denim trends right now?
QoE: I thought I would like the jeggings from Hue– but I was dissapointed with the fit. I like J Brand.
DT: Any favorite denim brands? Or denim stores?
QoE: Jbrand. I used to wear Paige denim but after two kids loosing and gaining weight… I just stick to one brand-no time to mix it up.
DT: How do you style your denim and tees? And where would you be going in them?
QoE: Everywhere. We need a nice versatile formal clever jean skirt or denim stretch dress—that’s missing… Snap to it Ms. J Brand!!!
