Before you allow the troll of Overwhelmed By Options (yeah, that’s his legal name) to hijack your fall shopping excitement, remember that fashion is supposed to be fun. All this trendy new denim may look high-maintenance – patterns and sheen and stray threads, oh my! – but this is going to be the best your legs have looked in years, thanks to whimsical prints, fun detailing, and looser fits.
If you want to gird your loins with cotton instead of leather, but still want that rock chick vibe, pick up a pair of coated jeans. The wet, waxy look adds an edge to your standard denim – and don’t worry about sticking with navy blue. Play with metallics or bright colors.
