Photographer and blogger Paul of Lavish Livez had some denim style insight from his own closet to impart upon our male readers this autumn, and we were more than happy to hear him out! See his tips and recommendations below.
“Fall is here and Winter is right around the corner. It’s getting cold, which means we need to toughen up! Raw denim is my favorite for the fall season, because it’s thicker and keeps the cold out (but keeps the style in). I have so many pairs of jeans in my closet (in fact, I have a closet dedicated just to jeans), and the majority of them are raw denim. My girlfriend complains that “they all look alike”, but to a real denim lover, like us Denim Therapy readers, we appreciate the unique life each pair of jeans has after years of wear… and too much is never enough! I’ve narrowed my denim collection down to my favorite four pairs. Check them out for some style inspiration this autumn!”

“How to style these jeans? I suggest updating your accessories collection to include things like fingerless gloves and a serious watch to up the badass factor.
1. Find a good watch. The wrist and hands are the only body parts that are near your jeans, and they move which brings the eyes directly to our hand area. It is very important to complement your denim with a great timepiece.
2. Mix it up with a pair of gloves. These were actually customized for me by my girlfriend—rather than the classic fingerless biker gloves, these put a twist on hand accessories.
3. Shade your eyes. We know that sunglasses are just as important to wear in the winter to protect the eyes, and they just so happen to up the style factor as well. But do you really need an excuse to wear them? Instant cool.”
Stay tuned for denim care tips and a round-up of must-have jeans this fall in our series with Paul from Lavish Livez!

Judging by our open windows early this morning, fall has officially arrived in NYC. That means we’re ready to break down the basics of denim-pairings for our favorite season of them all. Two trends we adore? Working-class chic and ’90s grunge with a twist. And those two concepts are merged into one of classic autumn appeal when denim is paired with plaid, whether the wash is bright and the red is rich, or the colors are muted and deep. We’ve rounded up our favorite denim-and-plaid outfits for you to browse, so you can start picking your favorite color ways too.
