The leaves are changing, and so should your denim rotation. If you’re a little wary of breaking away from your typical blues, don’t worry. These tips will have you nailing the hue-happy trend in no time.


Try subdued shades, like khaki or deep burgundy, which pair well with fall’s neutrals. Just make sure you’re paying attention to fit. Bunching and pulling are more noticeable in colors.

2. Add a statement necklace. Those drab outfits won’t look so boring with some big, bold jewels. An easy fix (after all, it’s just one piece that can work in so many ways) like a bright necklace will spring-ify everything from your old LBD to – you guessed it – your favorite tee.
