Jeans are taking on a whole new look. In fact, they are beginning to resemble anything but jeans, in the traditional sense! Here is a primer of what’s available this fall, and some of our favorite jeans sources.
Waxed or coated denim: These jeans have a leathery/matte look. They give off a subtle shimmer and can be worn day or evening. They are slim fitting and look great with a tunic top or long jacket. They’ve been around for several seasons but are very big this fall. Hard to say if this is a lasting trend, but they’re fun. I’ve seen them run from $75 – $200. A few are machine-washable, most are dry clean only. Sometimes you have the choice of light, medium or heavy coating.
The Prints: These are jeans with fall/winter prints, akin to the florals from the summer. They are usually cotton/polyester and machine washable. They are causal and dress up any sweater or winter top. These from Current/Elliott are fun.
