“Denim Is Our World”? Um, we can relate to that. The folks at GUESS have launched a site with that very name, for denim fans to receive exclusive shopping event invites, behind-the-scenes videos, new tools, and trendsetter profiles. Show off your jeans love by uploading a photo of your stylish self decked out in your fave pair of GUESS jeans or hashtagging it #GUESSJEANS. For the craftier denim aficionados among us, you can show off how you do denim by repurposing or remixing a pair. Upload a pic to Pinterest, tag it #GUESSwhatimade, and Erica Domesek from P.S. I Made This will pick her favorites. What’s not to love when denim’s (already) your world?

Guess is known for its sexier take on denim and they’re certainly turning up the heat for fall/winter 2012. For women, they’ve styled skinny jeans with luxe coats, collared shirts (even if they’re sometimes, um, see-through), bold take-charge heels, and chunky gold accessories. The message they’re sending men? Turn down the glam, turn up the campy rugged edge with fisherman’s sweaters, dusty boots, and suspenders. But we still think that is sexy, FYI.

Halloween is approaching, the leaves are changing, and let’s face it, it’s getting cold out! In case you didn’t know, jean jackets are the ultimate essential item for this season for both women and men. They are lightweight enough to not have you traveling in a sweat and are such an easy piece to layer with.

Last week, GUESS by Marciano debuted their 2011 Holiday Collection with an exclusive cocktail party co-hosted by VOGUE in Beverly Hills. The retro-centric party, complete with “pop-up fashion presentations” throughout the evening and a special performance by synchronized swimming troupe, “The Waterlilies,” complemented its retro-inspired high-glamour evening wear and versatile separates. As expected, classic denim pieces were on display which have the look of vintage denim, but are actually both feminine and luxurious in feel.
At bit more sophisticated yet flirty, the Holiday Collection makes it easy for the professional woman who wants a bit more sass in her wardrobe, from faux fur and sequin embellishments, to animal prints and bold asymmetrical cuts. In contrast to the gowns, the suit separates offer earth hues that are made to pair well with skinny jeans for a quick-change from a day to Happy Hour look.
