Achieving the whole modern boho thing doesn’t have to be complicated. Everyday skinny jeans and a simple mock-neck sweatshirt take on a sophisticated retro vibe with the addition of a round-brim wool hat, round sunnies, and groovy suede platforms. In other words, you’ll use any autumnal activity as an excuse to Instagram
yourself your outfit.
If you’re not the sporty type (or even if you are), you might consider tapered denim counterintuitive to an on-point athletic look. But a little creativity pays off big-time when it comes to your fall style game: Swapping sweats for figure-complementing skinnies offers a less sloppy silhouette, while special takes on game-time gear, like a satin-finish bomber and sequin drawstring backpack, lend a pulled-together nod to the genre.

The trick to easily adding interest to monochromatic denim-on-denim? Details, details, details. Go for less predictable proportions by pairing your favorite skinny jeans with a relaxed chambray shirtdress, then balance out the volume up top with a heavier shoe, like a playful low combat boot. Arty-feeling accessories keep the mood mellow, while elevating the look for an off-duty day of gallery-hopping or vintage hunting.

Ease the pain of the still-at-work weekend countdown by sneaking your comfiest skinnies into your office attire. Dress them up with a quirky-print button-up, an off-kilter loafer, and a bold-colored sweater tied around your waist for an effortlessly eye-catching ensemble. And when 5 p.m. finally hits? Dash out for a much-deserved drink (or nap).
We get it: Sometimes you really want the no-fuss look (and feel) of live-in jeans and a T-shirt. We’re with you — and we’ll raise you a pair of wear-all-day sneakers. Just keep the denim skinny, choose a silky, loose tee, and slide into kicks with a double-take-worthy design for a downtown vibe. Stash your everyday loot in a chic leather tote, and keep any early-fall chill away with a boxy black-denim jacket and pastel beanie.
