American girls are known for working their jeans into their wardrobes year round. But with the resurgence of ‘70s-inspired trends for Fall, we’re seeing more denim iterations than we ever have before, and they’re popping up in our favorite stores, too.
It’s not just about your flares this season; it’s about the flares with the distressed hem and that amazing patchwork jacket you’re pairing them with — but the true-blue portion of your closet shouldn’t end there. From button-front midi skirts to culottes and even going-out tops, everyone’s favorite material is, well, absolutely everywhere.
This Fall is all about mastering proportions and attracting eyes to outfit details that make for great focal points. A distressed hemline that meets a pair of espadrilles or, let’s say, snakeskin booties looks rugged and effortless.
Find one with unique details, like a tie waist or asymmetrical details, and work it with a neutral top.
The culottes trend is blowing up. There’s not one retailer we shop that isn’t stocked with a standout pair. But you’ll be surprised how often you end up wearing your denim version. They’ll lend your legs enough structure and your booty enough boost that you’ll feel confident rocking these with low-tops instead of heels.
A style like this looks superfeminine, especially when it’s complete with a bow at the side. Of course, if you aim for distressed details, you can easily play up the edge.
Fair warning: you’re going to want to wear your denim overalls more than once a week. The functional piece makes for an easy outfit — you have to think of little more than which throw-on-and-go top you want to rock underneath.
Rumi Neely’s overalls dress is so playful, we’d want to wear it with far more than a sporty crop top. You can try this design with over-the-knee boots to achieve ‘70s flair, and it would also look great layered over a turtleneck.
The style bloggers love to bend the rules that were made to be broken — and we count white denim after Labor Day as one of them. Seriously, we choose to rock our lighter jeans all through Winter. But if you pair them with a thick contrast belt, your look will feel totally rock ‘n’ roll.
Whether you button all the buttons or leave a few open to create a subtle leg slit, this silhouette gives off major ‘70s vibes.
Style blogger Gabi Fresh shows just how trustworthy her high-waisted flares are. She can pair them with a casual tee just as well as she could a flouncy blouse for a look that feels more fancy.
A short, A-line silhouette like this one helps you achieve that quintessential Fall “back-to-school” look that you can contrast with a breezy blouse or polish off with a printed silk shirt.
In order to master a true-blue Canadian tuxedo, you’ll need a button-down and live-in jeans that slightly contrast one another in shade. Break up your look with a belt, and complete with a pair of pumps. It’s a no-brainer.
While your crisp blue denim jacket from last season will never go out of style, patchwork is a major trend for Fall. A colorblock design like this one will turn heads, but it’ll still work as a neutral accoutrement for your outfit.
Chiara Ferragni’s design is easy to pair with slider sandals for weekend brunch or strappy stilettos for a night out. A structured piece like this one is a blank canvas for all of your statement accessories.
The going-out top is back in a big way this season, and as any American girl knows, you should never doubt denim to pull through, even when styling an evening look.
