With fall just around the corner, we're already thinking of the many sartorial updates we'll be making in our daily wardrobes, and denim is, of course, at the top of the list. What is fall without a great pair of jeans? We can't wait to embrace crisp, cool, and wonderful denim again once the leaves turn brown—they're the one item our editors rely on constantly as the foundation to many of their favorite fall outfits.
So what denim updates should we be making for the upcoming season? Today, we're sharing some of the biggest fall denim trends we spotted on the fall/winter 2022 runways and offering plenty of ideas on how to style them this autumn.

For a fresh update, opt for low, loose, and easy jeans that exude an effortless and modern vibe. We've already spotted this trend on the fashion set this summer, and there's no doubt we'll see the style dominate by fall thanks to the influence of the runways, from Bottega Veneta to Versace.

From cargo pockets to carpenter details, there were iterations of utilitarian denim all over the runways—reminiscent of the early aughts. We love the idea of styling them with a contrasting party top and heels.

You'll be happy to hear that the classic cool-girl silhouette will continue to be popular into fall. It works on every body type and looks chic with heels and flats alike. We saw plenty of cool iterations from brands such as Celine and Fendi. Styled with classic boots and structured tops, it's versatile and easy to dress up or down in an instant.
If you're not into the low-rise silhouettes, then fear not. High-rise cuts are here to stay in ultra-wide-leg styles. This season, we're seeing the silhouette with added embellishments, exposed buttons, and distressing.
There was no escaping the presence of denim miniskirts on the runways, but if you're thinking casual beach vibes, think again. Miniskirts and dresses were paired with polished accessories and smart tops, breathing new life into the casual staple.

If you love a head-to-toe denim look, then you're in luck this season. The fall runways were replete with denim separates paired together in sartorial harmony, and we've already been spotting the fresh look all over Instagram.
