Denim is comfortable, hard wearing. It can be sophisticated or sexy, clean or rough. There’s more than one reason why it’s such a permanent fixture on the fashion map, and more than one reason why it deserves dedicated attention when it comes to looking at fall 2013’s fashion trends. Count its long and culturally significant history, its versatility, and its ability to find new ways into our wardrobes amongst them.

Jeans are a highly personal thing. Find what works for you, and odds are you’ll never want to take them off. We’re not here to tell you what jeans you must wear, but rather the broader denim styles that are trending – to help inform and inspire your winter denim purchases.

Haters gonna hate, as the saying goes – but skinny jeans don’t care. No matter what other cuts come and go, skinny cuts remain.

That said, the skinny jean has relaxed a little over time – so while skin tight legging cuts will always work on a model figure, everyone else can embrace those pairs that feel a little more effortless.

The skinny jean in fall 2013 is about having a little bit of give at the hips and thighs but tapering down to the ankle, a figure flattering slim cut that makes it look like you bought them skinny but they’ve gotten just an inch loose on you.

Wear them with pretty much anything from sneakers and a cosy knit, to a sleek pair of heels and a blazer.

Boyfriend jeans burst onto the scene several years ago, becoming a major trend in 2009 in rebellion to the ubiquity of the skinny cut. Back then they were an extreme statement, the more oversized the better – not always to a flattering end. Having evolved, the boyfriend jean retains a flattering shape: find a pair that’s either slouchy at the hips but that stays fairly slim on the leg, or a pair that’s generally relaxed without bordering on sloppy (a few good examples are Rag & Bone’s mid-rise boyfriend jeans or this pair from Poorboy denim ).

  • Opt for a midriff baring top if the weather and your confidence allows it: the display of waistline helps balance out the lower silhouette.
  • For an overall relaxed look, nonchalantly belt a pair of boyfriend jeans and wear with a half-tucked in shirt or tee, a cool leather bomber, and a pair of sneakers or heavy boots.
  • For a sophisticated take, replace the casual footwear with a slick pair of pointed stilettos or ankle strap heels.
  • For another take, roll up the boyfriend jeans to the mid-leg or even up to the knee.

From the shredded-up styles of a few years ago back to a series of rips – small or large – it’s another look to come back around. Warranting of its own separate report looking at the different styles of ripped denim and how to wear them, you can read more at the link below.

In fall 2013 the ripped denim trend continues, from hacked-up, knee-baring jeans to shredded overalls. Go subtle or go all out, the choice is yours. Here's how to turn ripped denim into a sophisticated statement for fall.

Not so much patched denim as patchwork denim. this season the runways moved away from patches as a symptom of ripped and distressed and into patches as way of adding interest to fabric. When we first wrote about the patched denim trend back in 2009 it mostly went hand in hand with rips and holes; in 2013, it’s cleaner, fresher, and best kept away from ripped denim.

Much like patchwork denim, panelled denim also made a mark on the fall collections. In between a single block colour and a multitude of patches, this take is usually left to just two or three tones of denim. A pair of jeans with two tone panels that break above the knee give off the vibe of thigh high boots. while vertical panels like those seen at Nicole Miller can actually be quite flattering.

While the in-between shades of blue denim aren’t going anywhere, it’s the two polar extremes that sit high on the trends list for fall 2013. Soft, light denim washes ooze effortlessness, while deep, dark indigo shades brim with a clean sophistication.

It’s all part of the craving for effortlessnes, for looking completely cool and carefree: light blue denim returns in fall 2013 primarily with a washed out and faded feel. Soft, slouchy denim shirts in light hues or jeans in any on-trend cut – from skinny to boyfriend – are a go-to for layering up a denim look this season.

Away from the faded or distressed examples of years past, dark blue denim in 2013 is all about crisp block colours. A deep indigo dye can offer up a sophisticated and rich take on denim dressing, and again it’s not just for jeans. Dark denim jackets, shirts or dresses are all ideal for the cooler weather. Mix with other rich autumn tones like burgundy and deep green for the freshest approach.

It seems not all that long enough that denim shirts were cast away from every wardrobe with disdain. But recently they’ve become more than accepted: they’ve become a staple. Much like with jeans themselves, a denim shirt is best for fall 2013 when in a light or dark blue; but that’s not to discount regular denim hues in between. If in doubt, go for a soft chambray like Rag & Bone’s classic jean shirt .

Another one-time faux pas, the idea of double denim no longer offends – especially when we’re talking about a denim shirt paired with a piece of denim in a contrasting tone. Go for a slouchy, soft denim or chambray shirt worn with sleeves nonchalantly rolled up and buttons undone, tucked into a pair of darker slim cut or slouchy jeans; or, for a neater look, button your denim shirt all the way up and wear it neatly with a pair of straight leg jeans or dark denim overalls.

It may sound crazy but the denim shirt affords you opportunity to go for an outfit consisting of denim, denim and more denim. Note that again, this look works best when it’s not too matched up (unless you happen to have a fully tailored denim suit) but rather is eclectic, effortless, and with a bit of haphazard layering.

Nothing looks more right in 2013 than a light chambray or denim shirt worn with buttery black leather. Whether it’s neat and tucked in, or oversized and worn out, the denim shirt finds its perfect match in leather pants/shorts or a leather skirt for a sporty. cool-girl feel.

Call them overalls, call them denim dungarees. call them whatever you want: what once was workwear long ago made the transition to the street, and now there’s nothing quite so cool as a pair nonchalantly unbuckled on one side and worn with a slouchy sweater or plaid shirt. Any length goes: a pocket to slip your hand into and some matching attitude are the only things mandatory.

There was a time when the super-short, tight denim mini skirt was the only type of denim skirt, eclipsing all others as a summer staple that moved into winter with the assistance of a pair of opaque tights. It’s too soon to venture back into that territory, but that doesn’t mean that denim skirts are out. There are plenty of ways to give the denim skirt concept new life, and the main way is the cut.

Look for full skirt or circle skirt cuts in light or dark denim, fitted denim pencil skirts or denim skirts with pleats for a fresh take on the look.

It’s been a while since we’ve been attached to jean styles that bare our ankles. It’s a small change but a significant once, considering key styles for the past few years have gravitated towards full-length skinny or flared styles.

On the fall 2012 runways cropped jeans were at their best when cut just above the ankle (as opposed to mid-calf or below the knee) and when kept slim cut or with a light kick out at the bottom. To lengthen the legs and make this silhouette really work for you, heels are the best option.

Isabel Marant’s fall 2012 runway channeled the Wild West with embroidery, fringing and contrast detail. Just because it’s Western inspired doesn’t mean it needs to be dirty; neat, structured denim in cropped cuts makes for a vintage cowgirl look in 2012.
