Clothing label Babakul picked models that remind us of Jane Birkin and her It Girl daughter, Lou Doillon, for their Spring-Summer 2012 range of Hippie jeans, and we do mean 70s fashion redux. After all, Babakul is a French translation for “hippie.” This consistent collection of classic denim silhouettes—featuring flared wide leg jeans in high waists, soft denim shorts and a flirty denim dress—are sure to be great music festival fashion staples. We suddenly wanted to put on some Serge Gainsbourg and fiddle around with an acoustic guitar (even if we can’t play one). Babakul is simply killing us with their tranquil, laid-back styling, a product of the Los Angeles-based company founded by denim industry veterans who have together founded True Religion and Taverniti jeans.

Remember Dittos jeans? The ’70s-inspired denim brand is back and bold for Spring 2012. Offering a spectrum of candy-colored jeans and shorts (no surprise!) to satisfy your lust for, well, color, you could say there won’t be a dull day this spring. After all, there are 20 colors to work with! And, you can get a little wild with their animal print shorts, too. Featuring front besom pockets, saddle back yokes and double back yokes, the butt-flattering jeans are likely going to be a great repeat in your fashion rotation. Juicy, sassy and classy: Dittos has a little bit of something for everyone in this collection. The boys of yesteryear were hot for girls in Dittos jeans and we think history is about to repeat itself.

We caught a glimpse of the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection from LA based Raven Denim. We’re seeing a lot of high-waisted styles, but what we’re really happy about is that you can get these in a skinny, flared, and cropped jean, so your options aren’t limited if you prefer a certain fit. The burnt orange flared jeans are a fun pair to have to get in on the colored denim trend next season, but still stand out from the crowd as this look becomes increasingly popular. This lookbook has a really fun ’70s vibe to it, and we love how these jeans are shown so that you can imagine them for daytime outfits as well as nights out. Keep an eye out for the release of this collection at the Raven Denim Online store.

As if this cold weather wasn’t enough, the 7 For All Mankind Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook has us so ready to say goodbye to these winter temps! There are bursts of colored denim, which we are happy to see continued into next season, especially in the coral colored jean jacket. It is such a fun color to welcome in spring with, plus it matches well with a lot of other colors, so this can be as go-to a piece for you as your classic blue jean jacket is too. As far as jeans go, there are skinnies, flares, cropped, and colored styles, so you will never be stuck with one sort of look out of this line. The flares have a more laid-back feel to them, which immediately remind us of the lazy days of summer (ah, memories!). We really love the detailing on the pair with the four button closure instead of the usual zipper and little details like this throughout the whole collection ensure that you’re not buying just any old piece of denim. Keep an eye out for the release of the line at the 7 For All Mankind Online Shop.
