Shay Mitchell, the star of “Pretty Little Liars,” recently stepped out wearing a pair of the new Paige Denim Catalina shorts in Optic White, complemented by her Rebecca Minkoff Becky blazer and Yves Saint Laurent heels. These mid-rise denim shorts with a slight frayed hem will be available for Spring 2013. Shay took advantage of the extended Los Angeles summer to spiff up in head-to-toe white to shoot photos for her new blog at ShayMitchblog.tumblr.com. What do you think? Does this get you excited for the return of spring?

We’re grooving along to Rebecca Minkoff‘s cover of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. Accompanied by model Hilary Rhoda and style blogger Leandra Medine (of “Manrepeller”), we’re just a little bit jealous that these ladies are busting moves in their boyfriend and skinny jeans while getting ready for the CFDA Awards—and with such finesse! Be on the look out for Minkoff’s running man with her baby in the front carrier. Good times.

For New York Fashion Week, we pulled together seven fashion brands that drove denim to new levels and offered inspiration on what should be made in denim. We were so in love with some pieces that were not quite denim, that we threw those photos in for your ogling. We think you’ll forgive us.
Band of Outsiders—We’ve known for a while that the fashion houses have been fixated on Great Depression and Dustbowl era fashion, and there’s still a bit of this here, but with a mix of glam and luxury fabrics (we count suede and fur collars), there’s a sense that the sun-kissed models in workwear-inspired denim jumpsuits and white-collar attire, offers hope that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Diesel Black Gold—From red to blue denim, not only has Diesel gone gaga over color, they’ve gone Jackson Pollock with their side-tie pants and cropped jeans. With a definite homage to an 80′s fashion trend, the paint splashes and printed jeans serve as a contradiction to their progressive leatherwear. We couldn’t escape the sense of a Mad Max meets Highlander effect when everything was pulled together. Images via Style.com.
Gilded Age—Stefan Miljanic brings motorcycle culture to the stage for fall, except with more refined touches in layering pieces and clean lines, even in their colored and gray jeans. Images via GQ online.
Nicholas K—Designers Nicholas and Christopher Kunz have made her collection all about draping and furthering the Depression era vibe utilizing desert hues: models wore flapper wigs and Silent Film cosmetic work; Western touches were seen throughout. Hints of denim made its way in, including a hooded denim shirt and an homage to the denim jacket. Images via
—Who knew she was also an apparel designer? Known largely for her handbags, long-time followers have looked forward to her return to clothing design, her first passion. We think her bright legging pants may as well segue into

Vanessa Minnillo recently took to the streets in a white lace top that almost made us faint—does it get any prettier than this? Often overlooked as one of Hollywoods hotties (unless on the arm of Nick Lachey), this fashionista knows how to make a pair of jeans pop. She was spotted in Sherman Oaks wearing J Brand Houlihan Twill Cargo Pants. She paired them with Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Platform Sandal, Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Handbag in Almond, and a beautiful sheer embroidered caftan top. We’re going to give this one an A+.
