Coated Colors

Why we love it: We've loved coated jeans for a while now, but it's time to break away from your basic black and go for rich, saturated colors.

How to wear it: Just like you would your other colored pants! Go crazy with complementary patterns like leopard print, or pair with solids. We love them with a silk blouse and pumps for a great day-to-night look.

Distressed Boyfriend

Why we love it: Can you say comfy? Nothing's better than a pair of beaten-up jeans, and with the distressing already done for you, you can just relax and enjoy. The slimmer shape of this season's style lends itself to being dressed up more.

How to wear it: Pair them with pumps or oxfords like a street style star. They are a great foil for a sparkly or textural top and can be worn with a blazer for a strong contrast. Don't be afraid to wear with an oversize sweater (we spotted Diane Kruger in the look [17] recently).

High Waist

Why we love it: Despite the proliferation of crop tops on the runway, not all of us like to bare our abs. These slim your silhouette while keeping things under wraps — but with a retro twist.

How to wear it: Show off the high waist with a tucked-in shirt or shorter blazer. They are elongating, so flats are a shoewear option here. And yes, these do look excellent with a crop top.

Flares

Why we love it: Truth be told, not everyone likes a skinny jean. The right pair of flared jeans can make your legs look endless, especially when you pair them with a substantial heel.

How to wear it: You can go '70s-style and wear a slim turtleneck sweater tucked into your flares, or try a more volume-heavy look with a boxy shirt to counterbalance the below-the-knee width. Our word of warning: do not attempt this look with flats.

Camo

Why we love it: Sometimes jeans are more than just jeans. These camouflage printed styles multitask as pants for work, play, or evening. It's a fun trend to play with while still serving as a neutral in your wardrobe thanks to the colors.

How to wear it: Be bold by pairing them with another print or a bright color! Or make them sleeker with a black sweater. And if you aren't typically a fan of the Canadian tuxedo, this is your chance to wear denim on denim with aplomb.

Stripes

Why we love it: Vertical stripes are the ultimate slimmer, and who doesn't want that on her lower body?

How to wear it: Pair these with solids, especially colors, for a bold but wearable look. A denim or leather jacket keeps it casual without sacrificing polish.

Zipper Details

Why we love it: There is a definite biker influence in fashion right now, and this is the perfect way to translate a bit of moto into your wardrobe.

How to wear it: A hip zipper can be very slimming by drawing the eye away from problem areas, while ankle zippers pull the eye to the slimmest part of the leg. Remember to flaunt the detail by choosing tops and shoes that let the zipper stand out rather than be hidden.

Leather and Denim

Why we love it: Ready to get edgy? We love our denim, and we love our leather. So why not combine them into one statement garment?

How to wear it: These are definitely the center of attention, so let them shine. We would skip pairing them with other leather pieces, but a fitted blazer will add a little polish to the look.
