Your favorite jeans are getting a complete makeover this season, as designers like Miu Miu and Tome reimagined classic denim pieces featuring unique silhouettes and more interesting details like patches and raw hems.

Kendall and Bella love these jeans.

This is totally not your average denim jacket.

These jeans look so much higher-end than the $40 price tag suggests.

Like Valentino, Prada, and so many more designers proved—velvet is the trend to test out this season. And there are so many ways to test out the look—whether that’s a velvet bomber, pair of booties, dress, or anything in between.

This color will pop so nicely against an all-black outfit.

We’d pair this with a cream-colored turtleneck when it gets cooler outside. 

Every fashion girl needs a pair of velvet booties this season.

The simplest way to stand out? Go for your not-so-basic accessories—like a colorful pair of ankle boots or a bag with interesting details like crystals and pearls.

This is the easiest way thus far to make a statement without trying.

You can wear this bracelet to work, on the weekend, and everywhere in between.

The athleisure trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon—just turn to Vetements, Balenciaga, and Stella McCartney for proof. Incorporate a bomber jacket, a cool pair of track pants, or sneakers into your ensemble and you’ll look like the epitome of cool.

It’s impossible to get through this season without a printed bomber.

Imagine wearing these with a cool pullover on the weekend—so cute.

Try this hoodie with a pair of high-waisted jeans and sneakers when you're running around.

It’s no secret that pretty, bohemian dresses are staples in the summer months, but like we saw on the runways from Etro to Roberto Cavalli, they’re actually just as prevalent when it’s cooler outside (especially layered with turtleneck sweaters and jackets).

It’s the cutout details that make this dress unique.

This is such an easy (and chic!) way to test out the trend.
