When you’ve been listening to Elvis Presely and Buddy Holly on repeat and can’t get enough of chrome accents and vanilla milkshakes from roadside diners, you’re probably in the type of mood where you want to look like you just stepped out if Grease (we’ve been there too). It’s all too easy to think that your only denim options are dungarees, but this editorial featuring Rose Smith in Marie Claire Australia‘s December 2011 issue shows us that you can totally channel those 1950s vibes beyond simply rolling up your jeans and hiking up your ponytail. Decked out in clean and classic cardigans, pencil skirts, and secretary tops, the addition of a tailored, light-wash denim shirt makes these types of retro-inspired looks all the more fresh.
We love fall, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still dream about summer! Vice Style‘s “Get Over It” editorial reminds us of that lazy period when the leaves are changing, but the air’s still warm and all the schoolkids are restless with the return to academia. Stylist Mischa Notcutt shows us how to channel that effortless nonchalance in high-waisted denim shorts paired with slouchy tees and denim vests whimsically thrown over tomboyish threads. Check out all the looks below—you can’t go wrong.

When it comes to cool men’s denim duds with a rockin’ edge, Blackbarrett by Neil Barrett is definitely at the top of our list.

Talk about dressed down meets casual-cool style! Essential Homme takes us to the streets with this editorial full of denim looks totally proving what we’ve been saying for a long time: going casual doesn’t mean having to fall flat on the cool points. Styled by Kenny Ho, the classic Americana mix of not-too-tight jeans, denim jackets and workshirts, and lumberjack plaids are updated with dapper waistcoats and coats and an overall sleek less is more aesthetic. Definitely a look worth trying this fall! Check out the full editorial bellow.

Talk about attention grabber! Muse-worthy babe Bar Refaeli was photographed looking sultry for this month’s issue of Vogue Spain with wavy blonde locks and medium-wash denim. With an open jacket revealing her under-things and poses fit to weaken knees, it’s hard to focus on the clothes in this editorial… unless you’re denim-obsessed like we are! We couldn’t help but gawk at the desaturated denim workshirt and the school-pride style sports jacket that would look amazing with any pair of skinny jeans this fall. See for yourself! Just make sure your boss isn’t lurking over the computer. He might not be able to contain himself.

We are loving this editorial out of the pages of Nylon Magazine lensed by Andrew Yee featuring some killer throwback 80s meets 90s pattern clashing looks.

And though that’s pretty much the only denim used, we ain’t gonna lie we can’t get enough of the overall whimsical style of it all—gaudy accessories totally included.

We love this editorial out of the pages of Indie Magazine featuring Leebo Freeman dressed in some of the latest denim wears of the fall season. Styled by Ingo Nahrwold, newness is added to the still strong Americana trend by mixing in classic vintage varsity graphic tees a jerseys—a definite must have for anybody who wants to stay on trend. Long three-quarter blazers matched with double denim gives the otherwise casual-cool look a slightly more dapper appeal. Take a hint from the editorial below!

We love this editorial featuring Erin Wasson in Elle France, wearing some super luxe denim shorts that we wouldn’t mind including in our closets this fall. One pick was a shredded, stapled, pinned pair by Balmain, and another was a glittering sequin-encrusted selection from Zadig and Voltaire. Metallic accents matched with mild hues and thick cozy knits are an absolute must-wear for fall, combining the need for comfort and style into one seriously hot ensemble. Take a hint from these looks below!
