Winter is starting to look brighter: American Eagle will feature 15 young stars in its new Fall 2012 ad campaign, entitled, “Live Your Life”. Heading the line-up is Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell. The campaign emphasizes the brand’s focus on individual style and truly living your life in American Eagle denim. Check out the behind-the-scenes photos, where Shay is wearing American Eagle’s new Skinny Kick jeans ($49.50), in stores in July. Throughout the summer, American Eagle will continue to unveil the additional 14 guys and girls in the campaign.

Los Angeles-based Sinclair Denim may sound familiar to those who have shopped their jeans at high-end retailers like Neiman Marcus, and now, they’re back this summer with some innovative washes and treatments on jeans, bermudas and denim cutoffs. We felt like a kid at a candy store when we saw the Sinclair Spring-Summer 2012 lookbook. Its palette of foil coated jeans, deep indigos, juicy dip-dye pastels, railroad stripe and even glitter offer the woman a chance to dip her hands into any style cookie jar she chooses this summer. We are in love with Sinclair’s tasteful handling of dip dye and innovative use of foil coating. How would you rock a pair of Sinclairs?
If you want to get your hands on a pair of Sinclair Denim, try the Coe Legging Jean in Golden Lights or the Fixed Coe Skinny in Proxy (an ombré blue), both available at REVOLVE Clothing.

With a luxe spin for fall, BlankNYC‘s upcoming denim collection focuses on the skinny jeans the brand is known for, in a variety of washes. Besides the requisite bleached blues and deeper indigos, look out for printed jeans inspired by Moroccan tiles, rich coated burgundy and teal jeans, and color-blocked pieces. We’re thinking of one word: decadent. But the price doesn’t have to be! Their newest line also boasts pairs made with X-Fit Lycra fabric, a type of 4-way stretch denim offered at an affordable, under-$100 price tag.

For those of you who have been following Canadian-based Fidelity Denim over the years, you know they’ve been called the butt bra of jeans and have a celebrity following. Fidelity, now distributed stateside, has a mens jeans collection as of 2009. As much as we’re coveting the Spring-Summer 2012 jeans collection (stay tuned for our denim review!), we can’t help but fall in love with the styling in their fall lookbook. You’ll see the requisite skinny jeans, along with a slick burgundy coated jean, flared jeans and even some velvety fine-wale corduroy jeans in skinny silhouettes. Rich, saturated hues along with faded fall shades are at your disposal. Check out the gallery to peruse all the Fall styles.

M2F continues to provide colored denim enthusiasts with a richer approach to wearing brights. Their thread-dyed jeans and denim garments possess a unqiue vintage look that says, “I’ve been wearing these since high school!” (even if you just bought them yesterday). They continue to expand their selection and color range, featuring a pale minty green flare-leg, faded magenta cut-offs, and semi-destroyed grape purple boyfriend jeans. How can you say no to these?

We are all familiar with the thickly stitched horseshoe that each pair of True Religion’s comes equipped with, but we have to say their Fall/Winter 2012 lookbook is throwing us off into a new direction, and we like it. The brand’s latest lookbook exudes uncharted hues, vintage patterns and prints we are going to want to wear all season long. With different washes and leg openings this is a collection you’ve got to check out and most likely snag up more than one pair.

We’ve notice for quite some time how Lee Jeans in Europe (aka Lee Europe) has a covetable collection of on-trend jeans for men and women, and they continue to surge forward for Fall-Winter 2012 with a range of colored jeans in tailored cuts and sleek silhouettes. You wouldn’t even stop to think that its American counterpart collection could somehow be related, but we won’t go there. We only hope Lee brings some of those yummy jeans stateside, because we’re ready to have our minds changed. Yes, Lee Jeans might possibly be cool again in the U.S. Check out the gallery for all the velvety, sleek looks!

Guess is known for its sexier take on denim and they’re certainly turning up the heat for fall/winter 2012. For women, they’ve styled skinny jeans with luxe coats, collared shirts (even if they’re sometimes, um, see-through), bold take-charge heels, and chunky gold accessories. The message they’re sending men? Turn down the glam, turn up the campy rugged edge with fisherman’s sweaters, dusty boots, and suspenders. But we still think that is sexy, FYI.

Dittos Jeans brings a spectrum of colored jeans for Fall-Winter 2012, such as muted earth tones, bright and juicy citrus hues and graphic animal prints.

Want to feel a little edgy or casual-plus? Women like to have choices! Check out the Dittos Fall lookbook below for a sampling of what’s to come.
