Fashion Trends for Fall 2016: Denim Beyond Jeans

One of my favorite trends right now is denim beyond your jeans. Wearing denim in unexpected ways is huge this fall. I’m all about a chance to wear denim any way I can, from skirts and dresses to your classic denim jacket or button-up. It is an ultimate neutral for fall so denim makes for endless layering options and is also a great base. You can go all out layering denim on denim and use all your favorite fall tones as contrast.

Denim and burgundy look so pretty together but instead of a basic sweater with jeans, think of new ways to wear denim and other ways you can tie in color with your accessories beyond your bag and shoes. Here are 4 of my favorite ways to add color for the season:

Neck-ccessories: Bandanas are such a fresh twist you can add to amp your look by tying it around your neck or knotting it around your bag for an interesting detail. I love burgundy for fall.

Bold lip: Lip color is another subtle way to bring in jewel tones to offset a denim-on-denim ensemble – I love a pretty berry or plum lip or nail color for fall!


Feminine layers: Instead of layering colors over your denim look, switch things up and layer some color underneath your look with a bralette or bodysuit.Nothing makes you feel prettier than a flirty bralette – even if you are the only one that sees it! (Although they might be too pretty to keep covered up :).

Bomber: Jackets are always a fail-safe accessory — it’s a layer you can wear, tie around your waist, or ditch altogether so it works as more of an accent. I’ve always loved the bomber silhouette and a varsity style is so good! I love the sporty, sleek look so much I had to have it in both burgundy and black.
