"I'm a huge fan of black jeans year round but I'm loving a washed black jean for fall. These Topshop Jamie jeans (I'm obsessed with Topshop jeans and this is my favorite fit) would go from fancy nights out to lazy weekends in a flash."
Tasha Ball, Lifestyle Editor, FabFitFun
"I'm adding some serious flare to my wardrobe with a classic pair of bell bottoms. The silhouette is back in a big way this season, and this pair by Parker Smith has already been spotted on Lady Gaga and Gigi Hadid. I love the high rise, which looks amazing paired with a white tee for work or a crop top for a night out. And just the right amount of flare elongates my legs (which are on the shorter side), while perfectly-placed pockets flatter from the back."

"I found this great pair of Unpublished crop kick black jeans on Insta. The blogger @currentlylusting was wearing them-- and I couldn't believe they're only $66. Yas!"
Paige Ehlers, Creative Service Coordinator, SHEfinds
"One of the many things that the French do so well is denim -- and I'm in love with this pair from French-girl-du-jour Jeanne Damas' brand, Rouje. They're 100% cotton with no stretch -- which is an absolute must for me. And the fit, crop, and wash have that "je ne sais quoi" to give you an effortless look."
Alisha Stacy, Sales & Marketing Coordinator, SHEfinds
"I love wearing black jeans in the fall and winter. I have been looking for a pair that is distressed but not over the top and these are perfect. Plus, they are under $50!'
Shelby Rodriguez, Creative Manager, SHEfinds
"I've been on the hunt for a black high-waisted cropped flare jeans for awhile now. Extreme flare jeans make my legs look extremely short but these seem perfect."
Leah Carton, Editorial Intern, SHEfinds
"I'm a big fan of American Eagle denim -- not only are the jeans comfortable, but their short length options also fit my legs well. I really like this pair because of the simple distressing and the slightly frayed pant legs. I love the raw denim look that's trending this fall, but it seems to be hard to find a pair that fits me well. So, I'm definitely going to be buying these ASAP!"
Hannah Baxter, Assistant Editor, Coveteur
"If you're looking for compliments about the state of your behind, then Anine Bing's Jackie jeans are definitely meant for you. They're high-waisted, with enough stretch that you can still breathe, and have the perfect wide-leg, cropped combo. I've only just bought them and they've already become a staple in my closet rotation."
Jeanine Edwards, Vice President, SHEfinds
"I have so many skinny jeans, so I am trying to diversify. I like that these are cut slim without being skintight and pure black without any whiskering. They're worth the money because they'll never go out of style."
Emily Belfiore, Editorial Assistant, SHEfinds
"These vintage jeans from Zara are giving me LIFE! I love the contrasting washes and that they’re high-waisted. They’re also super on-trend with their flare fit and frayed hems. I'm also super into how they're bold and statement-making without being too bold and statement-making -- if you catch my drift!
