Style Guide: Fall's Perfect Jeans

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a difficult task. Whether you are short, tall, narrow or curvy, it seems like everyone struggles with finding a well fitting, flattering pair of these classic pants.

My best tip when trying on jeans is to make sure you get the correct length, and to master this make sure you try them on with the shoes you plan on wearing them with. Trust me, this little trick will simplify your after-purchase life considerably. Here are 4 pairs of jeans (in varying lengths) that I am loving this fall!



I love a distressed jean during the fall paired with a crisp flannel or white oxford shirt and comfortable shoes. Fall is all about snuggling up in clothing that not only looks good, but also feels good and nothing conquers both quite like your favorite pair of ripped jeans. I love everything about Lisa's look below!

As a lover all-black looks, I have about a dozen pairs of black pants. Jenna's pair hit right below the ankle, which is the perfect length if you want to get away with wearing denim at work. Her black jeans matched with this light gray sweater is a perfect outfit for cooling temps.

Flared denim has taken 2016 by storm, and to be honest I never really let go of this look. On colder days, swap your heeled sandals for booties or a chic pair of heels. Rima shows us that the right pair can even be styled with your favorite oversized sweater!

You can never (ever ever ever) go wrong with a classic pair of jeans. My favorite, go-to outfit during fall days is throwing a sweater over my comfiest pair of jeans and calling it a day. Mommy-to-be Olivia knows all about quick, yet chic, fall outfits!

While I do love a great pair of leggings, they definitely aren't appropriate for every occasion, which is why I always make sure to have a denim selection in my closet that is current and the right fit.

Be sure to check back in with me next week. I am dishing on this season's hottest textile... suede!!
