UPDATED: 2/2/19

I’m excited to share this fall outfit with you! Mustard yellow is such a great color for fall, and pairing it with leopard takes it up a serious notch or two.

I wore a mustard boyfriend sweater and a white tee with a leopard scarf. I love the mix of warm tones.

Bootcut jeans are not as popular as skinnies, but they’re fun for a change. My current favorite bootcut jeans are the 7 For All Mankind Kimmie bootcut, and I also like the Express barely boot jeans for a more budget-friendly option.

Bootcut jeans demand boots, and the higher the heel, the better. Just make sure your jeans are the right length for your boots. They should almost graze the ground, but not quite.

The boots are Nine West. I swear, these might be 10 years old. The stacked heel is back in style this year, so once again, I’m so glad that I never got rid of these! Here’s a similar pair that would also look great with bootcut jeans. I also love these for bootcut jeans, and these for a more budget-friendly option.

The brown belt is perfect for pulling the scarf and the boots together.

I chose gold jewelry in keeping with the warm tones of the outfit, but silver would work fine too.

I carried a small brown clutch. I like the various shades of brown in this outfit.

And here’s a closeup of the jeans. I just love the wash on these. They have faded slightly over time, but that only makes them better. This is why I invest in premium denim. They just get better with age.

So that’s my modern take on the bootcut jeans. This outfit would be just as cute with skinny jeans and ankle boots or riding boots. I’ve worn it that way in the past, but this is fun for a change.
