There was a crisp hint of autumn in the air early this morning in NYC, and though we knew afternoon would bring a good reason to crank the AC and keep our shorts short, it’s undeniable that fall is on the way. Fall boasts some of the best shopping all year, and there’s nothing like a little wardrobe refresh in time for the cooler months. One of our favorite trends this year? Metallic jeans!

With tribal prints all the rage, what better of a way to sport the look than with denim. Isabel Marant has done this perfectly with her amazing Navajo print embroidered denim inspired by the trend. These tribal patterned jeans have been worn by celebrities such as Nicole Richie and Cheryl Coles. Paired with a simple blazer and high platforms this is the perfect look to transition into the winter months. One may need to dig a little deep in their pockets to splurge for a pair, but it’s worth it, right?!

It’s no shocker that celebs love Black Orchid Denim—and since the West and East Coasts are experiencing much different weather right now, we’re seeing the best of late summer and fall fashion translated through the brand’s most sought-after styles. Ali Larter and Alessandra Ambrosio were both spotted this past weekend in Black Orchid denim shorts. Ali was rocking the ”Mini Shorts” in Meteor wash, whereas Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Alessandra opted for a boho look as she paired the Cut Off Shorts in Clear Ice wash with a printed tunic. On the chilly East Coast, Kourtney Kardashian wore Black Orchid Black Jewel Jeggings in jet black wash, while Lindsey Lohan chose High Rise Jeggings in Newton wash. She paired those with a checkered button-down and fringe boots. So there you have it—style inspiration from four celebs in two coasts, and one killer brand.
Celebs aren’t the only ones who love denim! Check out our founder Francine’s review of her Black Orchid skinny jeans.

Polka dots are all the rage for fall, but if you’ve been with us for more than a couple of scrolls you know we’re all about being ahead of the curve when it comes to style. We absolutely love this outfit by blogger Lisa D. who is rocking the fall trend to perfection. Her asymmetrical polka dot maxi skirt is a breathe of fresh air paired with an untucked denim shirt and chunky platform booties, which totally add the perfect hint of sexy edge. What’s event better about this look is that you can take it from day to evening in a second. Start by tucking the shirt in, throw on a boyfriend blazer in a neutral hue, grab an oversized envelope clutch and you’re all set! You’ll be ahead of the game in more ways than one!
Check out Lisa’s blog and Lookbook.nu page for more of her killer looks!

One menswear collection (or wardrobe as designer Christophe Decarnin prefers to call it) that we could not go without making a big fuss out of is without a doubt Balmain Homme. And though we would much rather have seen these ultra layered looks walk down a runway, we have to admit thislookbook is pretty amazing. There is a huge emphasis on outerwear in this collection, including everything from blazers to huge oversized military coats–a big trend for Fall. Naturally, the brand’s signature paneled biker jeans are back, however a much more simpler, straight-leg and much loser fit has been added to into the mix, which we love. One thing is certain: Decarnin can do no wrong. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, any man wearing his styles will certainly look really good and is sure to get noticed.
