Fall fashion is all about experimenting with layers - chunky knits, oversized jackets, textured skirts and sweater dresses all take center stage as our summer favorites head into storage. While we love a fabulous fall trend, one seasonal must-have withstands the test of time each year: a great pair of jeans! One single pair of denim can look and feel completely different depending on how you wear them. Whether you're looking for a basic pair of jeans to wear from day to night or a funky wide leg to spice up your rotation, here is our guide on how to make your favorite denim stand out.

Types of Jeans to Style

Straight Leg Jeans

If you are looking for a more relaxed fit on the bottom, straight leg jeans are always a great and versatile option. Plus, they are super flattering on most body types! Wear straight leg jeans with a printed top, heels and fun earrings to dress it up. The printed top adds some texture that feels dressier than your average t-shirt. If prints aren't your thing, you could also try a white silky blouse un-buttoned with a lot of layered jewelry. This look definitely gives off that "cool-girl" effortlessly sexy vibe.

Flare and Bootcut Jeans

Flare and Bootcut jeans are fabulous because they instantly elevate any outfit. If you want your jeans to steal the show, you can style your flares with a simple tank top, faux-fur jacket and booties. If you want to take it up a notch in the sexy department, pair your flare jeans with a tight ribbed knit sweater to show off your curves.

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans are the perfect style to add some edge to your typical look. However, the distressed details can sometimes make your outfit feel more casual. With this in mind, it's important to incorporate some dressier textures (silks, elevated knits, and embellishments) on top to spice it up. A silky blouse is the perfect, romantic piece to contrast the ripped jeans. Another option is to wear a sweater with some lurex elements - the shine will add a hint of glamour.

Skinny Jeans

The classic skinny jean has never been more essential as it is in the fall. A go-to staple that looks great with heels, the skinny jean will be your ultimate going-out style that looks great with any top. Wear your skinnies with an off-the-shoulder top to show off some shoulder, adding balance to your shape. Another fun option is to style skinny jeans with a puff sleeve top to add some dimension to the top. Plus, puff sleeve tops are super hot at the moment!

High Waisted Jeans

Last but not least, we have the most-popular and ultra flattering high-waisted jeans! Not to toot our own horns, but Ramy Brook's high-waisted jeans specifically lift you up and suck you in in all the right places - they're almost guaranteed to make your legs look 4 inches longer. That being said, try pairing a pair of high-waisted jeans with a sexy crop top to show some skin! If coverage is more your thing, try wearing a ribbed knit turtleneck. Not only will your mid-riff look ultra slim with the turtleneck tucked in to high-waisted jeans, but there's something super sexy about wearing a tight turtleneck with big hoops!
