The hottest jeans this season … and how to wear them

On a regular basis, I make the “rounds” and check out what’s new on all my favorite websites. And, since we’re at the height of the fall season, there are new things daily — which is so exciting! Denim is the number one place to start. Since the correct bottom piece is the starting point of every single outfit, it’s important to stay up on the current trends. Coated denim and faux leather are everywhere right now. But, in addition to black, the newest trends include dark brown and different shades of caramel. Every top brand has some cool version of coated denim in their line up. So, adding a pair or two is an easy way to update all your fall outfits!

In the last several days, after I posted this Instagram Reels video, I started getting lots of questions about coated denim. Some of you asked which is better, faux leather or coated denim? And, some of you wanted styling ideas. So today’s post is everything you need to know about the hottest jeans this season … and how to wear them! Whether you choose coated denim or faux leather, it’s really easy to style. Think cozy sweaters, blazers, feminine blouses or a favorite shirt jacket. Super simple, and you’ll look and feel great, no matter where you’re going!

Coated denim or faux leather?

This is tough because I like both, but if you’re only choosing one, I would go with coated denim. Why? It’s a little more comfortable, and basically feels like a pair of regular denim. Faux leather can get a little hot, and while it’s also soft, it isn’t quite as comfortable as denim. The nice thing about faux leather is that it can easily pass for the real thing. And, there are many styles from which to choose! Right now, I have my eye on a pair like this or this.
