There once was a time where the only jeans we would ever wear were skinny–but those days are long gone. Skinny jeans may not be completely dead, but they’re definitely not trending this season. In fact, the most popular styles for fall are quite the opposite.

This season, four new jean trends are competing for a spot in your closet and none of them are skinny.

Four New Jean Trends For Fall Are:

1. Wide Leg  – Wide leg jeans are back in style and better than ever. This roomier alternative to skinny jeans looks amazing worn with a pair of mules, booties, or loafers for fall.

2. Straight Leg – Straight leg jeans are great for those who like the tighter look of skinny jeans. This style looks professional and sleek, without feeling restrictive.

3. Paper Bag Waist – Paper bag waist pants are a new trend this year that are taking off like crazy. Everyone is loving the unique waistband on this style of pants, so why not wear them as jeans?

4. Frayed Bootcut – Raw hemlines are super popular right now and wearing them in a bootcut style feels fresh for fall.
