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.

We admit it: we still love the idea of starting fall with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and an oversize sweater… but it’s nice to mix things up, and we know some of you are just plain sick of wearing skinny jeans. If that sounds like you, Nasty Gal has some nice alternatives to mix things up as the weather cools down. A flare leg, a boyfriend jean, and a super cute pair of denim trousers (reminiscent of stovepipe jeans from the 70s). Shop all three below.

The Glamourai posted up a new look this week featuring one of our favorite combinations for a no-fuss women’s look in the summer: a classic white button-down top and a pair of medium wash skinny jeans. She chose a pair of Rich + Skinny destroyed denim jeans, but this look can be pulled off with a less rock-n-roll pair as well. We dare say this is a great option for the office!

If you’re into boyfriend/drop-crotch jeans but don’t want to go outside looking like a Gwen Stefani fan from the early ’90s, there’s a way to pull off the look in a sophisticated fashion.
Redbook says, “Boyfriend jeans (baggy and cuffed) are the trendiest right now but can be sophisticated, too — just avoid the torn, ultra-distressed, low-rise styles that scream “teen.” They’re also versatile: Dress them up with a tailored shirt and heels or down with flats and a favorite tee.”
