With more denim options than ever out there, it’s hard for anyone to decide which ones to wear. Remember the days when bootcut in medium blue were our only options? These days, you can find your choice of fit — skinny, flared, bootcut, straight, wide-leg, and high-waisted — and the colors look like a Crayola box exploded. Now that the denim Pandora’s box has been opened, we’re seeing everything from skinny to wide-leg. But with denim prices what they are, how many pairs can you try out each season? For fall, we’re pretty excited about newest flared styles which a slight variation on our favorite bootcut and jewel-toned denim looks just right for the cooler weather. But we want to know what denim you’re stocking up on! Tell us: Which of the newest jeans styles are you most excited about? Which ones will you never try?

While I’m glad that this fall, anything goes, I will never wear super high-waisted jeans, Lifesaver-colored jeans, or tapered jeans. These styles are not flattering on anyone, in my opinion. I will continue to rock flares, bootcuts, trouser jeans, and low- to medium-rises.

I always love a good trouser cut. Timeless, great fit, also a staple this season. The thicker seaming at the base makes them classier for a nice evening out.
Seven’s black wash Trouser Cut are killer.

i love skinnies and the high waisted sooooo cute

Boot cut. Low rise, but not too low. Nothing baggy, nothing saggy, nothing that shows butt crack or hip bones. Just classic.

I wear skinny or straight leg jeans. I will never wear colored jeans, high-waist jeans, or wide leg jeans. Colored jeans are just plain ugly, high-waisted ones look bad because I have a very short waist, and wide leg jeans are too wide for my petite frame. I also stay away from bootcut.

Yuck to the high-waisted look. I’ll continue with boot-cut, low-waisted.

Dorothy on

I like skinny jeans and probably I will get one pair of the wide leg-I have one very old pair. The high waist just doesn’t look flattering unless the woman is really tall skinny and long legged.Colored jeans-a bit to funky for me but younger girls can surely explore that look.

Rachel on

I like skinny, flared, and wide-leg. I don’t like high waist or any rainbow colored jeans.

For Fall I like skinny tight jeans at botton because I love jeans tucked in boots. I will not wear high waisted jeans. They are not flattering on any ones figure. I like the jeans Penelope has on. I would wear those if I could find them. I don’t know where to get them.

This fall I’ll be wearing my constant favorite wide leg jeans, but I’ll be updating them with colors. such as red or blue. At 5’9 and a size 13/14, I find that they flatter my figure the best.
