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.

Fashion and Flair With Denim

Denim is a classic material, and while it used to be mainly used for just jeans, this adaptable fabric can now be found in just about every garment type possible. If you want to add some denim flair to your wardrobe, without purchasing yet another pair of jeans, a denim dress could be exactly what you need.

Simplicity is Key
While denim dress styles have evolved quite a bit over the decades, the current trend for denim dresses is veering towards simplicity. A flowing silhouette that just about skims the body is always a great option, as is a shirtdress that features a darker wash of denim.

Dress It Up
When it comes to denim dresses, one of the main problems that many have is that it can often look slightly too casual. However, it is actually quite easy to dress a denim dress up, as all you need are a few statement accessories. Whether you opt for shoulder-grazing earrings or a pair of killer heels, the accessories that you choose can really transform your whole outfit.

Cinch in the Waist
If your denim dress skims your figure, then there may be times at which you want to enhance your shape. This can easily be done by cinching in your waist, either with a skinny belt or a wider sash. This will give your look so much more definition, and will make your dress fit your body in a different way.

Denim Maxi Dresses
For those looking for something even more unique than a short denim dress, a denim maxi dress may be perfect for you. These usually tend to have quite a vintage vibe, so be sure to keep it modern with your shoes and other accessories.

A Harder Edge
Denim dresses are usually quite casual, but if you would like to give your look a bit more attitude, there are a couple of ways in which you can do this. Try pairing your denim dress with some combat boots, and even add in a leather jacket if you want it to be even more edgy.

Off-Shoulder
The off-shoulder trend has been hot for quite a while now, and shows no sign of slowing down. Opting for an off-shoulder denim dress is a great way to embrace this style, and will give your dress a gorgeous, flirty, feminine quality. If you do not want to show too much skin, tie a thin silk scarf around your neck, as this will keep your chest covered while highlighting your bare shoulders.

Cool and Casual
There are many ways in which you can dress a denim dress up, but it is sometimes always best to wear it in a casual way. Try wearing your dress with a baseball cap and a pair of sneakers for a cool, down-to-earth look.

Denim is such a versatile material, which is why every woman should have a denim dress in her wardrobe. Whether you dress it up with high heels and a statement clutch bag, or go for a casual vibe with sneakers and a baseball cap, your denim dress will soon become your go-to item in your wardrobe.
