With just one look at the covetable bright blue reptile print jeans, we had to see what was up with Black Orchid Denim. As you may recall from their sultry Fall/Winter 2011 campaign, Black Orchid has a knack for raising the bar on sexy jeans. For Spring-Summer 2012, we notice a bit more of an eclectic mix of vintage wash looks and colorful prints (a girl likes to have options!), inspiring Boho style, Western, glam, rocker and some ethnic-tribal patterns.
Check out Black Orchid Denim on Facebook to stay updated and watch their new campaign video!

Set against whitewashed adobe walls and colorful folk blankets, Turkish brand Mavi’s collection for spring still retains the Mediterranean feel the line is known for, while also incorporating Western-style influences. If there’s one lesson that we can learn from their latest range of colored jeans, indigo washes, and denim shirts, it’s that denim goes excellent with–you guessed it!–even more denim. The key is picking washes that are either radically different, like pairing stark white denim shirts with mustard yellow jeans, or garments that perfectly meld together wash-wise for a monochromatic look (with different proportions, of course).

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!

One of the hottest and most wearable trend of the season is definitely the western-meets-bohemian look. So far we’ve shown you hot to rock it with bold prints and scantly denim shorts shorts, but now that it’s getting a bit more chilly we figure you might want to add a layer or two. We love this girls take on this trend, so we broke it down for you for some food for thought. Her double denim look gets a cozy revamp with a oversized chunky knit sweater thrown over. An on-trend floppy hat, worn in suede booties, and gold accessories add the perfect western flare without going overboard.

This fall True Religion ditches its usual bohemian hippie vibe and highlights its western side in a classic Americana mix of leather, vintage plaids, ditsy florals, and denim essentials. Shot by Nino Mu?oz and modeled by Anne Vyalitsyna, head-to-toe denim looks accented with Navajo printed belts and turquoise jewelry definitely give the double denim look a killer (though not-so-groundbreaking) revamp. A suede chunky platform in a saturated camel hue instead of a cowboy boot could definitely take this from ultra-conceptual to totally wearable. We dig! The west is officially back ya’ll!

Fashion Gone Rogue takes us on a lazy summer vacation decked in neo-western looks perfect for the seasons hot hot heat in this exclusive editorial titled Heartbeats shot by Harper Smith. High waisted denim short shorts are paired with a barely there nude crochet swimsuit and vintage-inspired necklace with a hint a turquoise. And of course a new take on the majestic west would be nothing without a dose of fringe made of-the-moment in the form of an acid wash denim jacket over a vintage graphic tee and leopard hot pants. A leather buckaroo style hat and suede fringed ankle boots finish off the look (spurs totally optional).

June’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar Spain features Dutch beauty Anna de Rejk looking anything but sweet in this killer punk-western inspired editorial. From studs and safety pins on ultra bleached out denim to worn in western leather, the best of both worlds come together for a what Harper’s calls a new take of London punk style. All we have to say is that if Anna can rock a cropped denim jacket with fringe (which we’re totally into, by the way) over a pair of leather pants with lace-up details and manage to give it a punk edge, then it’s a definite ace look in our book!
