Colored denim is being replaced with two-tone, patchwork, and coated styles for fall. Not to say you can't still rock colored skinnies in fall friendly hues like olive, burgundy, cobalt, and burnt orange, but there are so many new ways to wear regular denim washes this season.

I love these Aeropostale patchwork jeans. They incorporate the patchwork trend in the simplest of ways, with patches on the knees. But I couldn't stop there- I had to add a chambray top to complete the look. These jeans are more "boyfriend" than I've ever worn, so I had to figure out the right way to cuff them. I used the advice here, here and here for some great ideas on how to cuff my jeans.

This fall, don't be afraid to mix similar shades of denim. When I've worn the "Canadian tuxedu" before, I've made sure that my denim washes were in stark contrast to one another. The patchwork trend allows you to mix and match just about any denim shades you have in your closet. If you're too scared to mix too many shades of denim at once, try out a patchwork button-up like the ones I added to the Shop the Trend section below. I really love the Madewell colorblocked popover.

I'd love to know which look was your favorite this week! Lace, military, leather, or denim? Let me know in the comments below :)

  3. Where did you take these photos? I love the more "urban" background, definitely works for this trend. My favorite this week, hands down, was the lace post! You looked so chique and stylish! Well, more than you usually always do :)

  5. I do like the way you styled the denim pants. The bag and shoes works well with the look.


    I've seen this trend around lately.. Hmm, it might take a lot for me to try it out though.

  9. These were taken at a DART station (Dallas' version of the subway I guess but it's above ground). I loved the city feel these last set of photos had! My photog outdid herself :)

  11. Thank you Oluwaseun! I was a little hesitant but it helps to buy pieces that already have multiple shades of denim incorporated so you don't have to do the mixing yourself :)
