Colored denim, printed denim, coated denim… all of these are exciting and coveted developments in the ever-expanding choices the denim industry has to offer as of late. But one trend we’re all over? Gradient jeans. Also called ombre, they provide 2-in-1 color that fades in a chic and subtle way from the hip to the ankle. Style blogger Coline shows off her black-to-grey pair with some a beanie and black ankle boots. Rock on!

Nothing gives us and instant fashion fix more than an eclectic mix of denim, bold prints (think snake, leopard, and Navajo), flirty sequins, and bad ass leather and studs! Sound amazing? We knew you’d dig it! LF‘s latest fall lookbook has got all of the above and more! We love the overall western meets bohemian grunge feel of it all styled with the perfect touches of on-trend sequins and fur for an added touch of luxe. Snake print denim, leopard shoes, and Navajo-inspired accessories finish off the look seamlessly. It’s safe to say that this fall season more is definitely more!

Mix textures added to your denim creates a semi-retro fun ’90s look. You can match a floral denim print with an acid-wash pair of jeans, for example. This amps up the excitement factor of your outfit while still keeping it within the realms of chic. Just be sure the rest of your separates are solid colors to avoid looking like a confused ’90s overload. Check out some of these cool mix-textured denim looks below!

Pixie L. paired a flowy floral top with acid-wash cut-out light wash jeans and killer black ankle boots with plenty of hardware.
Rachel-Marie I. styles her geometric body-hugging dress with a thick black belt and an acid-wash jacket. The look becomes super-mod with two-tone platform wedges.
Olivia H. does classic ’90s grunge to perfection with an oversize flannel, sheer black tights, and high-waisted acid wash shorts. Though recent history, this combo is coming back strong on the street style circuit.
Celeste C. paired a super-cute lip-print top with her vintage acid-wash high-waisted shorts fo a perfect summer beach-side look.
