The pre-fall collection included a fresh selection of pastel hues in pinks, blues, and greys with prints like feathers and florals. Floral jeans reversed to a medium blue jean wash, which, when cuffed, turned into what we professionally describe as the cutest-jeans-ever. The Vintage Mercury 2013 collection featured beautiful metallic jeans, from champagne to pewter. Picking a favorite? Pretty much impossible.

We love the “less is more” design philosophy, especially when it comes to jeans. It’s always refreshing to find a pair of jeans free of bells-and-whistles, that emphasize beautiful fit, carefully selected fabrics, and artisanal washes. Eugene Is My Middle Name is one of those brands, and their fall/winter 2012 lookbook features some gorgeous brights for the cold weather season. If you’ve been hesitant to wear light wash denim, white jeans, or metallics in the past, these styles should help you tip the scales in the other direction.
See four of our favorite looks below, including a pair of hand-sanded Italian denim ombre skinnies, bleached-out light wash, gold metallic hand-gilded and Japanese cotton jeans.
Check out the full Eugene Is My Middle Name lookbook.

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!

In contrast to Closed‘s Fall 2012 collection, which incorporates subdued splashes of colored denim and separates, the Winter collection kicks it up a notch with bolder and brighter blues, magenta (an emerging trendy color right now), softened greens and purples, which dot the men’s collection. For the women, expect to find bronze and silver jeans along side their colorful gem colored jeans. Of course, you can sift through their requisite collection of indigo and grays for winter—all in slim and skinny fits—but don’t you think a splash of color adds spice to your wardrobe?

For spring, Rag & Bone has released two new styles that we absolutely adore. The first is an artsy pattern called the Surfer Knit, which nearly looks like a museum print–but one that you can wear on your bum (don’t you just love wearable art?). The second, a pair of metallic bronze leather skinny jeans, is perfect for the luxe bohemian, or anyone who likes to go full-out glam. We’ve rounded up the perfect pieces to pair with these two statement jeans, whether you want to go bold with bright colors or subdued with neutral hues.
