Once upon a time, jeans were considered a simple staple to pair with flashier items like a statement jacket or standout top. This season proves that times have changed, with so many new eye-catching iterations of denim stalking the runway. While you certainly shouldn’t toss your basic pairs of jeans (they’ll never go out of style), more show-stopping finds are making waves among the cool-girl set this fall. For us, the perfect statement-making pair has unexpected details like embroidery with distressing. Blogger Erica Hoida of FashionedChic found her statement jeans at Armani Exchange, along with a slew of other elevated pieces she styled together for a look you can easily recreate for yourself.
Keep scrolling for some of our favorite statement jeans of the season and see how to wear them now.
The first thing that makes these Armani Exchange jeans a statement maker is the embroidery. The blue hue complements the rest of her look and the wonderful wash of the denim.
For that extra touch of interest, look for distressed details. The subtle distressing on the jeans Hoida is wearing keeps the look edgy but keeps it sophisticated for Casual Fridays.
When the cut of these jeans is on the slouchy side, the silhouette makes room for a more versatile look. Not only can you wear this to the office, you can also wear them as part of a chic date-night look.
