This fall, denim style is looking dressier. There are so many fall trends to try right now, but one style we are on board with is the lady-like look: Peter Pan collars, an ornate neckline and additional classy jewelry. Paired with your favorite pair of dark wash or coated jeans, you could easily make a quick change into a skirt and cute pumps if you so desire. So versatile! We know our stylish readers out there will put their own spin on fall trends, so we’ve pulled together some great pieces to get the creative juices flowing.
It’s happened to us all: We find the most amazing pair of jeans, they’re the only pair left, and they’re just a few sizes off. Some might give up, but others, like Sarah (who found the last pair of pink d.brand jeans), buy them anyway and make them work. How? By using Denim Therapy‘s incredible resizing service! Send your jeans in now and see how perfectly they can fit. And, click the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to get your denim fitting like a glove.
An exciting new development in floral printed jeans, Earnest Sewn is collaborating with designer Peter Som to bring you a new spectrum of dreamy pastel jeans in a variety of floral motifs. The jeans, entitled Floral Fusion, walked the runway during NYFW spring 2013, which means two things: A) you’ll have to wait for next spring. B) you have something to look forward to all winter! The styles include cropped, wide leg, and skinny.
The line blossomed from Peter Som’s poppy runway prints and incorporated Earnest Sewn’s renowned denim techniques such as pigment coating and laser-dye processes. Earnest Sewn’s Creative Director, Ben Talley Smith said, “the collaboration has pushed our team to work with silhouettes outside of the traditional five pocket realm that we know and love, so that in itself has been exciting for us.”
Designer, Peter Som noted that he’s “thrilled to partner with The Earnest Sewn Co. The fusion of my runway prints with their expertise in denim has resulted in a very exciting collaboration. As someone who wears Earnest Sewn jeans regularly, the collaboration is a natural fit.”
Make it a warm leather-look this fall with the Meltin’Potdenim leatherette. “Bikers, Rockers, Vixens and Glam Rebels, Masculine meets ultra Femme. Goodbye summer and golden tans. Hello Fall Winter ’12… and what better than to dive straight in and adorn the new seasonal trend of leather inspired jeans and hot pants?”
Leather, like denim, is an iconic fabric that has survived not only many a fashion era but has also become an iconic classic in most of our wardrobes.Meltin’Pot has created 3 leather look effect jeans and a hot pair of winter shorts to wear over cashmere or woollen hose for ultra winter cool.
The thing that sets the most stylish people apart from the rest is not that they have access to some exclusive, unique source of clothing no one else does. It’s that they take the same products everyone else buys and they make it their own. With jeans, this is especially versatile, from distressing to cuffing and beyond.
Below are a few ways you can make your jeans your own this fall.
1. DIY distress your jeans. Grab a pair of scissors, some sand paper, and go to town on your favorite jeans to create a look that’s vintage and chic. Check out our post on distressing denim for more ideas.
2. Mix and match denim with your favorite statement accessories, like killer shoes or a bold metallic clutch. Hint: Done correctly, this makes a pair of jeans acceptable in the night life realm.
3. Cuff them up. Whether you prefer a wide thick cuff or a skinny rolled cuff, when you adjust hemlines, the game changes. The a-symmetrical cuffing job above is a tomboyish statement we love (especially when worn with heels). Check out our video on three ways to cuff jeans, below.
Don’t get us wrong, color blocking and high contrast are both excellent ways to make an outfit pop—but sometimes going the understated route can make the biggest impact. Monochromatic styling requires a bit of bravery (done incorrectly, it could get costume-y), as well as like-hued items to mix and match. If you’re into this look, check our tips below on pulling it off with your favorite jeans this fall—and check out Nasty Gal’s newest lookbook for more ideas.
1. Colored jeans are a shoe-in for this style! After all, you’re more likely to find a top to go with your over-dyed lilac denim than your destroyed dark wash skinnies.
2. Mix textures and variations on your chosen color to keep from looking like a children’s book character. A solid top with acid wash jeans or a printed top with smooth, non-distressed flares will keep you looking chic.
3. Stick with neutral hues to start if you’re unsure: a heather grey is a perfect launch point!
You think the peplum trend is going away? Think again. It Girl Hanneli Mustaparta shows us how to get the look for fall and winter with a few key wardrobe essentials for keeping those flirty ruffles in your street style repertoire. Keep The Beat, Mango‘s style blog, says: “The secret with peplum is to combine it with a skinny trouser, denim or otherwise. The added touch of the gloves gives the look a more feminine edge, while a good heeled shoe streamlines the figure. And we must not overlook the oversized bag either, ideal for carrying all your things.”
Fashion never stops, and it never waits until Spring 2013 to try on the hottest looks inspired street style stars.

The allure of back-to-school shopping never wears off, and there are few things we love more than shopping for new jeans before the cold front hits. This fall we’re sticking to colored denim, coated denim, and stretch cords—all of which are perfect for wearing with oversized sweaters or chic tailored blazers. We’ve picked six of our favorites below for you to browse.
