Go For Colour
“One of many standout denim seems from fall 2022 for me was this lavender jacket and pants combo from Rejina Pyo’s assortment. It instantly introduced me again to the times of colourful skinny denims (I lived in my yellow pastel pair circa the early 2000s). This time round, Pyo’s tackle the brilliant denim development feels trendy because of the marginally baggier match pants and outsized jacket. This can be a enjoyable strategy to the Canadian tuxedo, too, and looks as if a glance I can simply grasp with out veering too removed from my trend consolation zone. So this fall, I’ll give my conventional blue denim items a break in favor of a pop of shade.” — Marina Liao, senior trend information editor

In addition to the consolation issue of loose-fitting clothes, I’m notably drawn to how the look evokes an easy, easygoing vibe — even when planning my outfit was removed from it. I prefer to pair the denims with a crisp white tee, tailor-made double-breasted blazer, and a structured bag to shine them up. And since I’m a New Yorker and stroll to and from most locations, I’ll end it off with a trendy pair of sneakers like Gucci’s latest collaboration with Adidas.” — Kathy Lee, editor-in-chief
“I’m not one to stray too removed from my most well-liked straight-leg, mid-rise denim, however I’m additionally dwelling for all of the outsized pant silhouettes for fall. Zits Studios’ model of the wide-leg denim trouser was exaggerated in all the most effective methods, from the waist that almost touches your breastbone and a dreamy patchwork end that lends that stylish craft-inspired vibe I’m so keen on currently. Though I don’t suppose I’ll lean fairly to this point into this outsized look, I’m excited to discover a distinct silhouette. Plus, any kind of embellishment on denims tugs on my sartorial heartstrings and makes a brand new denim addition to my closet (which is admittedly already fairly saturated) really feel worthwhile. These Eckhaus Latta denims match the invoice completely — a wide-leg model with one-of-a-kind bleach particulars.” — Hannah Baxter, deputy magnificence editor

This season, my go-to mixture begins with an outsized, wide-leg denim with one thing streamlined-yet-special up prime. And whereas this method is actually easy sufficient, don’t write it off as one-note: Heading to a brunch? Go for a structured T-shirt or knit with a contrasting belt. And should you plan on sporting your massive saggy pants out all night, why not lean into some drama with a glittery assertion piece?” — Alison Syrett, deputy trend editor

For fall, I usually gravitate towards a lighter wash denim pant with a simple match and a cream or white cozy sweater up prime (I’ve misplaced rely of the variety of ivory tops in my closet). This season will admittedly be comparable, with some minor but impactful upgrades I gleaned from Givenchy’s fall/winter 2022 assortment. I’m loving the look of a pearl-adorned denim pant paired with a fitted white lengthy sleeve and assertion neckwear. I’ll be kicking issues up a notch with a pair of metallic boots and a colourful assertion bag.” — Angela Melero, government editor

So I lean extra towards denim-inspired seems, or deconstructed items like this Fendi set. I really like the flexibility of denims to really feel each actually laid-back and easy and in addition fully retro, and I’m positively leaning extra towards the latter proper now. That mentioned, an all-denim look may be intimidating — I’ve actually been delay by the look prior to now — however I’ve discovered darker washes of denim to be the candy spot for me. To not point out navy jean hues match proper in with the autumnal shade palette.” — Annie Blay, affiliate trend information editor
Easy & Modern
“Because the begin of the pandemic, my denims have sat principally unworn. At this level, a whole lot of them both don’t match or don’t work with my present model.
