Forget your classic bootcuts or simple skinnies in blue or black. Over the last few seasons, denim has got tighter and louder than ever, and for Autumn / Winter if you want to really push the boat out you're going to need some bright printed denim.

With everything from polka dots to baroque prints on offer, there's a style for all tastes, but be careful when it comes to shape. This look works best on a super-skinny cut that hugs your legs right down to the ankle. Florals and polka dots on flares and bootcut jeans can look a bit dated and over the top. Keep your top half simple too, and let the print do the talking. Just add a racerback vest or a slouchy knit, and top off with ankle boots or slip-on flats.
