We’ve been light wash obsessed all summer long, but now that the weather is cooling off, we’re ready to break out the darker hues—especially when it comes to jeans. Fall is the perfect time to pair black jeans with an oversize sweater or a chic denim button-down. Here are 6 diverse options for wearing one of our favorite styles.
Ever wonder how to bring new life to an old pair of favorite jeans? Aside from sending them in to Denim Therapy for any physical repairs they may desperately need, you can re-style and revive your baby blues with some styling tricks. The upside to this? Aside from avoiding spending your hard-earned summer income on denim this fall, you will also be doing something for the environment:
Via The Zoe Report: “By either repurposing your outdated jeans—you know, the long-forgotten-about pairs hiding at the bottom of a drawer—or seeking out pre-loved varieties, you’ll not only be adding intrigue to your wardrobe, but you’ll also be reducing landfill waste (clothing contributes up to 5%). Here, you’ll find three crazy-cool resources to give your blues game a boost!”

From DL1961: DL1961 Premium Denim unveils its Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, which was shot against a denim backdrop by fashion photographer Sharif Hamza, and styled by Tom Van Dorpe. The campaign features models Tess Hellfeuer and Mathias Lauridsen, and highlights fresh, modern looks of head-to-toe denim. From dark, clean lines to sleek, buttoned-up styling, the campaign is a major departure from anything the brand has done before.
“This season we wanted to create a collection that represents the technological nature and sleekness of our denim,” said Sarah Ahmed, DL1961’s Creative Director. “We continue our mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’ and are excited to unveil our Fall/Winter fit collection, which captures the premium, effortless yet signature style that DL1961 has become known for.”

Our favorite shoot from the latest CR Fashion Book is this one, featuring Sibui Nazarenko photographed by Billy Kidd. Can you guess why? The denim layering is dead-on for fall 2014, utilizing classic denim jackets (the kind everyone has in their closet) alongside cozy knits and cold-weather favorites. We might be summer-dreaming right now, but we’re already soaking up inspiration for fall.
