When it comes to fall trends, there is nothing as foolproof as a pair of effortless jeans and a feminine top. Whether out for a date night or in line at parent pick up and running errands with kids in tow, women’s jeans never fail for a classic and chic outfit that can be dressed up, or dressed down, depending on the occasion or your mood.
When the temperatures start to drop and you find yourself slowly adding layer upon layer heading into the winter season, you’ll want to avoid that bulky look that easily creeps up when you pair chunky knit sweaters over vests and long sleeves. When you’re ditching shorts and T-shirts for a warmer and more comfortable look, there are several things to consider like fabric, texture, and comfort. Good news: you can have them all by simply combining jeans and a cute top.
As we take a look forward to fall 2020, here are our votes for the top trends for jeans and a cute top.
Take a step back in time with this vintage ensemble that looks well-thought-out with minimum effort. Better yet, you can wear this look to almost any function, from pumpkin patches to date night, because this pair always looks put together. Wear a pair of high-rise jeans, preferably in a flare or boot-cut shape, with a slimline striped turtleneck tucked in. For a more vintage look, choose a long sleeve turtleneck that has more narrow stripes in warm fall colors like purple, orange, red, and gold. The slim silhouette of the turtleneck will give you feminine shoulders, while the high rise jeans will cinch your waist. Depending on the cut and shade of jeans you choose, your legs will appear long and narrow too. For a true vintage style, we recommend a slimline turtleneck with flare or boot cut jeans in a dark wash, paired with heeled boots. Finish off the look with your favorite leather belt, gold hoop earrings, and a hair scarf for accessories. Trust us, you’ll look polished and charming.
Pair super skinny jeans with cashmere sweaters in fall 2020 for a look that is feminine, elegant, and instantly luxurious. Cashmere is a beautifully rich and soft wool from cashmere or pashmina goats, and the soft fibers adapt to most temperatures, meaning that you stay warm in extra cold temperatures but not too hot in warmer, more moderate climates. We love cashmere sweaters because they are statement-making and luxurious. Soft to the touch and gentle on skin, cashmere sweaters elevate any outfit, and they give off a delicate and feminine look. Pair an oversized cashmere sweater with tailored skinny jeans for either a casual or formal appearance. Cashmere sweaters come in a variety of different colors, from black to pastel pink. Our favorite look is a light, pastel pink or nude color, paired with white skinny jeans. We know what you’re thinking, “White after Labor Day?” It turns out this fashion faux pas is nothing more than a myth.
Long trench coats and jackets are classic and elegant, and better yet—they are the most adaptable outerwear for the fall season. Double breasted and tailored cuts make trench coats a style for the ages; a staple item that every wise woman has in her closet. No matter how traditional this clothing item is, it’s always eloquent, classic, and understatedly sexy. Wear a long belted trench coat cinched at the waist with mid-rise, straight leg jeans, and classic ballet flats for a look that Audrey Hepburn herself would be proud of. Minimal jewelry is advised for this polished look.
Let’s talk everyday style: running errands, meet and greets, and quick grocery store stop-ins. We know life is busy, but it doesn’t mean you have to substitute your style. Nothing says on-the-go like sporty, casual style in fall 2020. We recommend starting with a pair of straight-leg jeans in white or a light blue worn wash. Look for a pair that are not skin tight, but instead have some extra room for moving about. Cuff your jeans and wear them with slip on sneakers or street sneakers that are clean and not “too broken in.” Add a sporty polo top or a long-sleeve sporty top that is fitted and tailored. Feeling extra sport mode? Add a preppy and clean hat or visor. We’re not too sure about you, but this look is thriving and exudes bouncy youth. You’ll feel unstoppable in this cool look that’s perfect for everyday head turns.
With styles like boot cut jeans, straight leg jeans, or skinny jeans, and every variety of rises, there are many options for mixing and matching. For every body type, from petite to plus size, there’s a cut and style to make every woman look and feel phenomenal. Pair whatever makes you feel your best with a top that brings out the shine in you and you're all set to take the day by storm!
