Besides stomping in crunchy leaves, carving pumpkins, and inhaling baked apple cider doughnuts, fall makes me think of denim. And with the cozy new season in full swing, I’ve been embracing crisp, comfy, and cool jeans that have mostly been unworn for the past few sweltering-hot months. Since I’m wearing jeans on heavy rotation these days, I’m always looking for fresh and trend-forward ways of styling them.
Today, I wanted to highlight some of the noteworthy new-season trends that not only are making my outfits look very fall 2023 but also happen to look pretty darn amazing with denim. From this season’s must-have fiery-red hues to sleek slingback flats, take a peek below at the seven styles that will take your denim from zero to 10 in an instant this fall and winter.
Blazers are getting the 1980s treatment this fall with details such as strong shoulders, cinched-in waists, and bold gold accents—a nod to the era's power suiting silhouettes. Pair them with your slouchy jeans this fall for an of-the-moment look.
Leather jackets are an integral part of fall dressing, and this season, we're seeing plenty of iterations—particularly oversize styles in moto, racing, and bomber silhouettes—adding an unabashedly cool touch to your autumn outfit.
Vibrant, fiery red is the It color of fall/winter 2023, and it just so happens to pair beautifully with blue denim. Opt for a chic knit vest or sweater, or try an accessory to make your outfit pop.
It's all about elegant and luxe-looking knits this fall. Whether it's a simple Prada-inspired charcoal-gray crew-neck or a sumptuous knit polo, they're a match made in heaven with any denim trend you try this fall.
While we consider button-down shirts more of a timeless staple than a trend, it's worth noting how much of a big moment they're having this fall thanks to their huge presence on the fall 2023 runways. Pair a crisp striped, white, or blue button-down with a slouchy pair of jeans and a belt for an effortlessly chic fall look.
