Recently, Refinery29 featured three ways to wear wide leg jeans, a great go-to jean to transition from summer to fall. We know it’s hard to imagine at the moment, through the scorching temperatures, that cooler days are upon us, but it’s true! These breezy wide hem jeans work well for a casual weekend, or a weekday work outfit; it’s very versatile. Throw on a blazer, slip on some heels, swap in a colorful blouse. Just make sure your job allows you to wear jeans on non-Fridays! What’s great about wide leg jeans is that you can keep wearing them into fall and stretch your denim dollars! Check out the suggested pairings and see if you can’t personalize it even more with your own accessories and favorite footwear.

When it comes to fashion icons for women, Audrey Hepburn is the penultimate clean, classic style inspiration–and we’ll still look to her for notes on how to pick our denim. We can totally imagine her wearing this collection of slim black pants, graphic printed jean trousers, high-waist shorts, and classic blue jeans. Add a preppy collared shirt, flats, a perfectly arched eyebrow, and you’ll get this look down pat.

Causal & feminine are the two words that describe Citizens Of Humanity‘s spring 2012 women’s collection. Wide-leg jeans, light-washes, playful frocks, and a gorgeous floral print (seen recently on Lana Del Rey) characterize the stylish, casual aesthetic. Even more daring pieces like a destroyed white denim vest with a shredded out back have a sense of vintage prettiness. Shown with white knit tops and leather belts, this is a no-fuss, no-frills wardrobe for women who want effortless basics that will never go out of style.

Jessica Alba was seen on two separate occasions this past week wearing one of our favorite brands, J Brand. She chose the 811 mid-rise skinny jeans in Dare for a solo outing and then shortly after, the Love Story Bell Bottom Corduroy Jeans for a stroll with her daughter, Honor Warren. Her daytime style formula includes J brand classic dark wash jeans, a patterned or striped shirt, and sometimes a hat/scarf combo.
