Denim is a true-blue, all-American classic. It became popular in the 1840s among people mining for gold, who depended on the sturdy cotton weave to withstand all types of weather. Since then, it’s made appearances in major fashion trends, from bell-bottoms to acid wash denim to skinny jeans.
Denim is always in style, always vegan, and more sustainable than animal-derived materials, too. That’s our favorite part. Here are some ideas for how to wear it this fall, as the weather cools down:
