You can never really go wrong with denim, but, if the only denim that you wear is your go-to pair of jeans, it may be time to update your wardrobe. From double denim to colored denim, here are six ways that you can wear denim this fall.

Double Denim
The double denim look is always a fun one, but you need to ensure that the pieces that you choose are quite modern, otherwise your outfit will end up looking dated. A pair of skinny denim jeans, worn with a white t-shirt and a denim jacket, is always going to look clean and sophisticated, with the denim giving it a casual edge. Pair this with some heeled ankle boots if you want to dress it up, or just go with sneakers for a more laid back vibe.

High-Waisted, Wide-Legged Jeans
High-waisted, wide-legged jeans are wonderfully dramatic, but can easily be toned down depending on how you choose to style them. The fact that they are high waisted means that they will flatter your figure, while also giving you plenty of choice when it comes to deciding what top to wear with them.

Colored Denim
Denim primarily comes in shades of blue, but there are plenty of options out there when it comes to colored denim too. White is clean and fresh, while bold and bright shades can really give your denim a whole new attitude.

Denim Shirts
Denim shirts are perfect for the months of fall, as they provide enough coverage and warmth, but can easily be styled to adapt to warmer days. For those days when you want to bare some skin, wear your denim shirt tied at the waist with the sleeves rolled up, paired with some shorts. For chillier days, wear it with some jeans and ankle boots, throwing a jacket over the top if your shirt happens to be made from a thinner material.

Draped Denim Dress
Denim dresses are another item that is so much fun to wear, and there are so many styles out there to choose from. While maxi dresses and mini dresses may be the most popular, midi dresses are perfect for the months of fall. Draped styles will add an element of drama to your look, and will help your dress to stand out from the more conventional denim dresses out there.

Cropped Jeans
With winter on its way, you are soon going to have to completely cover up, which is why you need to take advantage of the fall months and show some leg while you still can. Cropped jeans are fantastic for this, as they provide coverage and warmth but accentuate your figure by revealing a bit of your legs. If you would prefer to show a bit more skin, opt for a distressed style of cropped jeans, and wear this with a pair of sandals rather than closed shoes.

One of the biggest advantages to wearing denim is that it is so versatile, and can easily be dressed up or down. This applies to each of the looks mentioned above, making each of these pieces a worthwhile investment.

Denim Style for Spring

Denim is classic, and just about everyone has a denim item of clothing in their wardrobe. While denim may have certainly had its high and low points over the years, this spring it is making quite the comeback in so many different versatile ways.

White, Ivory and Sand
When it comes to denim, blue is usually the color that dominates, but, this spring, white, ivory and sand shades of denim are set to be the hottest colors. Being such neutral colors, a pair of jeans in one of these shades will work with just about every piece of clothing you own, and will really bring your whole outfit together in a new and interesting way.

Denim Accessories
Denim accessories are often overlooked, but this spring you can expect to see them everywhere. While many designers have their take on denim accessories, some of the highlights include the sophisticated clutch from Baraboux, as well as the studded denim heels from Sam Edelman. The denim choker from Migonne Gavigan is also a great piece to add to your collection, as it is quite a contemporary take on a retro item.

Set Your Ankles Free
While tight-legged skinny jeans may have dominated the runways in recent years, this spring is all about wider hems. Although slim-cut shapes will never really be out of style, the silhouettes for this spring are everything but. Whether you opt for ultra wide legs or 70s-inspired bell bottoms, give those restricted jeans a miss this spring.

Customized Jean Shorts
In recent seasons, jeans are an item of clothing that have definitely undergone the customization trend, and jean shorts are now following suit. Whether they are ripped, bleached, raw hemmed, or patched, the key to this look is individuality, and allowing your jeans to be an extension of your personal style and personality.

Embellished
As mentioned above, customization has been a huge trend recently, especially when it come to distressed jeans. This spring, distressed jeans are being taken to the next level with embellishments. These are not in-your-face add-ons, but rather subtle embellished patches that give your jeans, or jacket, a unique twist. In addition to embellishments, hand embroidery is another way to go, as this adds a beautifully delicate touch to the structured nature of denim.

A Pop of Color
While neutral shades of denim may be popular this season, spring is all about color, and cheerful, vibrant shades of denim will never go amiss. When paired with down-to-earth neutrals, the result is always chic and elegant, elevating the denim within your outfit.

A Feminine Touch
Denim can often seem quite masculine, but there is no reason why you cannot sport denim that has its own special feminine touch. Whether lace, pearls or hints of pink, denim will be taking on a soft, feminine quality this spring.

Denim is such a versatile fabric, and can be worn in so many different ways. Whether you are dressing up or dressing down, these denim looks are wonderfully diverse, and will work no matter your personal style.
