Shorts and sundress season is officially over, and everyone is looking for that perfect pair of denim they can rock with their fall ankle boots and winter snow boots. For the last decade, skinny jeans have been the wardrobe staple—they are easy to dress down for a lazy day in class, and to dress up with a pair of black heels for a night out with the ladies. Although skinny jeans will always hold a special place in the millennial’s heart (and wardrobe), straight leg jeans are Fall 2015’s denim of the season.
No matter what Teen Vogue tries to tell us, flare jeans are far from being the modern woman’s daily denim. Flare jeans are fun for when you are feeling like really reviving the 70s, but straight leg jeans are proving to be the most versatile denim of the season. Straight leg jeans are slimming like a skinny jean, and trendy like a boyfriend jean; when cuffed at the ankle, they are great for showing off your favorite new ankle boots.
