Tired of your basic blue and black skinnies? Well, then this is your season! Denim is breaking the mold with tons of fresh, fun new styles for fall.

We headed over to the Frankie B. premium denim showroom in downtown Los Angeles to check out all the cool new looks we’ve seen celebrities sporting lately and figure out what to wear with them.

Frankie B. has been around for ages, and as a favorite of celebs like Fergie, Jennifer Lopez and Katie Holmes, is always on the edge of fashion. Designer Daniella Clarke showed us the top trends for this fall and the upcoming holiday season and even modeled a few pairs!

Fall’s top denim trends

Printed denim

This look started in the summer but is continuing to build steam. Celebrities like Rachel Bilson and Rumer Willis are fans of the look. Try it in cool patterns like floral, geometric or stars (like the Frankie B. Distressed Star Skinny).

Colored, coated denim

Oxblood, fuchsia and plum are all popular colors this season. Combine those hues with the leathery look of coated denim and you’ll be right on trend. Blake Lively was seen sporting this look in dark brown skinnies while filming Gossip Girl in NYC.

So this isn’t exactly “denim,” but leather is a hot look with or without the baby blues. Over at Frankie B. they’ve combined the two with their Hollywood Denim-Leather Skinny. Pair this look with a simple white printed tee for a laid-back, rocker vibe.

Metallic denim

Perfect for those holiday parties, metallic denim is a fun way to celebrate the season. Dress it down with a simple solid tee, or pair with a similar shimmery top for a fancier look. Celebs like Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff and Jessica Alba have been seen sporting the look.

Striped denim

Contrary to popular belief, stripes don’t always make you look fat! As Daniella told us, “These stripes are going the right direction.” Try this look, as seen on Heidi Klum, as a quick fix to slim down without skipping holiday treats.

Sequined denim

By far the most flashy denim look this season is sequins. Show your holiday spirit by sporting a pair on New Year's or dressed down for a trip to the grocery store. Daniella says she likes to embrace their extravagance and play it up with more standout pieces like fur.


Frankie B. launched in 1999 and was named after Daniella's daughter Frankie, now a college student in California.
