Of all the new trends that come out in the fall, the one I get most excited about is denim. As a stay at home mom, in the colder months I pretty much live day in and day out in a pair of denim. Playing with the new styles and trends helps me feel current and fresh, while still sticking with my old standby favorite! Win win! This fall I am excited to try these 6 emerging trends in denim. Which ones will you be trying out for yourself?
Fun detailing like quilted knee patches, side zippers and cargo pockets make these the most daring of the bunch. These would look great paired with a simple striped tee, a boyfriend sweater and chucks!

Coated denim refers to denim coated with a special finish to create a shiny effect, that can range from a subtle sheen to full on glossy! I would wear a subtle sheen during the day with a sweatshirt and flats to tone it down, or would even dare a glossy version at night with a blouse and some heels! This style is a great, more practical alternative to the leather legging trend that has been around for awhile now.

Last season it was all about colorful denim, and this season I see a return to more original indigo shades, or more subdued tones like gray. This color swaps out effortlessly with black, which makes it super easy to blend into your wardrobe.

Adding a sporty spin to a pair of denim is as easy as adding a stripe or two! I am really excited about this look, in fact the pair featured above was recently seen on my pre-fall wishlist. I would love to splurge on these babies! I love how they are paired with a pump to dress them up-I would totally wear these on a date night along with a crisp button-up, big gold baubles and a red lip!

Skinny and boyfriend cuts have gotten the majority of play for several seasons it seems, so it's only fair that we switch it up a bit and play around with straight fits again. I love the look of a cuffed straight leg jean, and they can be paired with practically any shoe! Try them with flats, booties, heels, you name it!

Did we ever think zippered denim would come back in style?! I know I didn't, but I didn't think Birkenstocks ever would either and here we are. You can go subtle with a simple ankle zip in back, or daring with a full-frontal zipper like the ones shown here! Although I hope they are merely decorative and couldn't actually be zipped open! That is a wardrobe malfunction just waiting to happen!
