Denim is a loyal fallback in any wardrobe and always a good starting point when you don’t know what to wear. Sometimes, a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt is all that’s needed to go from bum-in-pajamas to street-style-approved — but denim can go way beyond "a simple pair of jeans."

Right now, Soho and Nolita's boutiques have several unexpected denim options to choose from, including a versatile jumpsuit for half-off at COS and a Rachel Comey denim dress that's more body-defining than a lot of styles out there. Check out the best denim pieces that you can shop right now below.

COS denim jumpsuit, $75 (originally $150)

Pair this jumpsuit with a light layer underneath at the office or as-is for after-hours. You can easily work this into the fall with a turtleneck layered underneath. At COS, 129 Spring Street

Sayaka Davis sailor pant at No. 6, $277

If you can keep white denim spotless for more than 30 seconds, go for Sayaka Davis’ sailor pants. The front slits are great for showing off flats, sneakers, or flatform sandals. At No. 6, 6 Centre Market Pl

Rachel Comey Pinyon dress, $391

Sure, there are denim dresses galore on the market right now, but Rachel Comey’s has stayed clear of the muumuu zone. At Rachel Comey, 95 Crosby St

Tibi Marisol embroidered skirt, $395

Channel the embellishment trend with this A-line midi, which does all the work in an outfit — just add a simple white tee or tank top. At Tibi, 120 Wooster St

Bless MNZ Jacket at Creatures of Comfort, $642

You may have a denim jacket already, but this reworked color-blocked version is cooler. At Creatures of Comfort, 205 Mulberry St
