The only thing worse than being cold, is being cold in an ill-fitting pair of jeans. Luckily, it’s a quick fix, and you can easily nail two birds with one stone. Refresh your stock of on-trend denim and grab some cozy knits to get the job done this winter! Below are some of our favorites.
We dropped in the American Eagle & Aerie fall 2013 preview yesterday for a pastry and some AM fashion-gazing. The ever-expanding line has amp’d up selection in both the men’s and women’s departments. We were especially delighted to see a carefully played bohemian influence in the styling of chic denim separates, flirty scarves, and gorgeous jewelry. This season we’re loving the returning Artist fit jean for women who want to edge towards flare leg while keeping it chic. Check out the full preview below!

Winter is a great time of year to rock that jeans and boots look, no matter what type of boots or fit of jean. With the right pair of jeans, you’ll have months of hassle-free street style looks. For ankle boots, wear cropped jeans or try cuffing them with a thin cuff for a delicate look. Skinny or boyfriend jeans work. For tall boots, wear denim leggings or skinny jeans. They stay in your boots better and are less likely to pinch. Avoid wearing slim or boot cut jeans if you want to tuck them in. You want a sleek silhouette. Now, all you have to do is throw on the perfect knit top or wintry coat to complete the look.

We caught a look of Replay and Sons Fall 2011 Lookbook and well, safe to say we know what we’re getting our favorite little ones this holiday season! They have all of our Replay favorites, but in pint-size versions! The faded, distressed denim gives the jeans an extra bit of flare that goes with all the fun that is kids fashion, without being too overwhelmingly cutesy. Whether it be your standard boot-cut jean, overalls, or jean skirt, these items are all great options for any boy or girl as they are staple pieces that can be mixed and matched. The best thing about this collection though is how easy it is to match the looks to your own style–we mean who doesn’t love a good jean skirt and tight combo?

First off, we just have to say that we LOVE the Artisan de Luxe Women’s Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. This line has everything that we love about denim, like how easy it is to have it be the clothing that lets you really express who you are. There is no skinny jean in sight for this collection, and we don’t have a problem with that at all (we mean it, they are EVERYWHERE!). Instead they have boot cut and flared styles that are extra special thanks to simple whisker detailing and distressing. Our real favorites though have to be the high-waisted denim shorts with the leather fringe pocket and jewel applications around the waist. Coming in at a very close second though are the cut-off denim shorts that have a peace sign print down one leg–so cute and trendy without being over the top. Keep an eye out at the Artisan de Luxe Online Shop for when this amazing collection becomes available in the next coming months.
