Celebrity Stylist Jeanann Williams Shares Her Denim Tips For Fall: "Every Woman Needs A Flare"

One of the first items you buy for fall is a new pair of jeans, right?? Maybe you’ve outgrown your favorite pair from last year, or you’re just in the mood for a new look. Skinny jeans are always a good go-to, but with flares and boyfriend jeans becoming increasingly more “in,” there’s a real reason to give your denim purchase some extra thought this year. We want to make your life easy, so we consulted celebrity stylist and NYDJ Creative Board member Jeanann Williams‘ for her best tips on buying denim this season. Here it is:

SHEfinds: What denim trends do our readers need to know about for fall?

Jeanann Williams: For fall, flare and high-waisted denim are coming back–every woman needs a flare in their wardrobe. It’s funny because I used to swear by skinny and boyfriend denim, but flares have gradually crept into my closet! They’re best styled with a good platform or heeled bootie.

SF: What are your go-to weekend jeans?

JW: For the weekend, I still love a boyfriend jean or skinny. Boyfriend denim is just so comfortable and can still look feminine paired with a ballet flat and skinnies with the right amount of stretch are a great go-to. I’ve been working with denim brand NYDJ for the past year as a member of their Creative Board and can’t get enough of their Ami Super Skinny. It’s high-waisted with a bit of stretch and really lifts everything up.

SF: What are your go-to work/dress-up jeans?

JW: I love a good black skinny jean. They’re so versatile and you can dress them up or down. I’ll wear a tee with them for the day and throw on a blazer or leather jacket with heels at night.

Shop now: NYDJ Alina Leggings ($110)

SF: What is the first thing you buy for a new season/fall?

JW: For the new season, I always update my knit and denim wardrobe, adding in the perfect white tee shirt and the newest denim style and wash.

SF: What is one denim piece our readers should splurge on this year, if they can only buy 1 new item for fall?

JW: For fall, I recommend splurging on the flare jean. These days they’re available in black, light-washed denim and deep indigo so you can easily find a wash that looks best on your body type. I really like NYDJ’s Farrah Flare in medium wash–it has a chic 70’s boho vibe that’s very of the moment.
