A new season is a good time to stock up on the basics, and it’s hard to think of a staple that’s more essential than a great pair of jeans. Whether you’re into classic styles or fashion-driven cuts, the best fall jeans are those that you reach for even when leggings and joggers beckon: They offer put-together style with a healthy dose of comfort, too.
Trending silhouettes included flared jeans and wide-legged pairs, nods to the ’70s and ’90s. The shapes are surprisingly easy to wear; they dress up nicely with a sleek top and a statement heel but look fresh and modern over a pair of white kicks with a striped tee. The high-rise straight leg jean sits on the cusp of classic and trendy; it’s a rare style that can be sophisticated or rock-and-roll, so it’s a great place to start if you’re looking to get in on the season’s trends.
In terms of classic shapes that are always popular? Some have wondered whether skinny jeans are out, but I disagree: it appears every year on the runway and there’s not a better cut for knee-high boots And it’s certainly easy to find comfortable variations with plenty of stretch if you don’t fancy raw denim. But for people who prefer a relaxed cut, the boyfriend jean is a slouchy alternative that never feels out, and, of course, the list wouldn’t be complete without a pair of distressed denim for texture and edge (although it might feature fewer rips than a pair you reach for in the summer).
Below, you’ll find seven of the best jeans to wear all season — and beyond.
