When fall calls, it’s time to dress the part! Say goodbye to overtly sexy high-waisted shorts and say hello to the more conservative but stylish alternative – printed denim. Classic blues are old school cool, but you have full permission to let your bold side speak and have some fun with wild prints, be it floral, polka-dotted, or cheetah.

The trend is heating up the streets in L.A.! Trend-setting celebrities like Rihanna, Vanessa Hudgens, Whitney Port and more are rocking the printed denim. Showing that this trend is as easy to pull off as any other, throw on a simple top with the outrageous styles of the printed denim and you’ll transform an average outfit into a spectacular one. Whitney, Rihanna and Vanessa have on wicked denim but they balance their looks with neutral colored sweaters and t-shirts for an effortless look.

Surprise! The floral print is not reserved for spring anymore. Keeping with the theme, tuck your bright florals away when the flowers bloom again as darker florals are sweeping in, as shown here by reigning street style queens, Beyonce, Olivia Palermo and Jessica Alba. Sold at stores such as Topshop and Urban Outfitters, the floral denim is the wildcard finishing touch on any outfit this season.

So ladies cover up those legs! And when you do, the printed denim is the way to go!
