Recently, Refinery29 featured three ways to wear wide leg jeans, a great go-to jean to transition from summer to fall. We know it’s hard to imagine at the moment, through the scorching temperatures, that cooler days are upon us, but it’s true! These breezy wide hem jeans work well for a casual weekend, or a weekday work outfit; it’s very versatile. Throw on a blazer, slip on some heels, swap in a colorful blouse. Just make sure your job allows you to wear jeans on non-Fridays! What’s great about wide leg jeans is that you can keep wearing them into fall and stretch your denim dollars! Check out the suggested pairings and see if you can’t personalize it even more with your own accessories and favorite footwear.

Causal & feminine are the two words that describe Citizens Of Humanity‘s spring 2012 women’s collection. Wide-leg jeans, light-washes, playful frocks, and a gorgeous floral print (seen recently on Lana Del Rey) characterize the stylish, casual aesthetic. Even more daring pieces like a destroyed white denim vest with a shredded out back have a sense of vintage prettiness. Shown with white knit tops and leather belts, this is a no-fuss, no-frills wardrobe for women who want effortless basics that will never go out of style.

We are so happy to see SO much denim in the Damyller’s 2012 Spring Summer Campaign! What we really love is how they have more than just your average blue jean, but don’t have to take crazy risks to make their denim stand out. Take the extreme wide-leg light-wash jeans—so on trend right now and so comfortable (win-win!). Another great part about this collection is the mix of light-wash, dark-wash, and distressed denim that is available for both men and women. Any combination of these styles make for an easy way to rock the denim on denim trend, so putting an outfit together would be a no-brainer. This may be this Brazilian brand’s Spring Summer collection, but we’re super excited that their denim workshirts, flared jeans, and jean skirts are pieces you can wear all year round! Check out the Damyller Online Site to find the nearest store to you.

After looking at the Closed Spring/Summer 2012 Women’s Lookbook, we are already counting down the days till next summer. We love that colored denim is coming along with us as it gets colder out, but the pastel yellow, teal, white and daring neon green denim jeans are all hot shades to wear when it starts heating up. The skinny jeans are available in also a cropped leg, but our real favorite are the wide leg light wash jeans because they manage to look extremely comfortable yet chic at the same time. The camo cargo jeans, which are also featured in a matching skirt, are really cute too—they will set you apart from the crowd but in a more subtle way than bold colored denim would. As shown in the lookbook, this line gives you great, fashion-forward denim pieces that can be paired with everyday items, like cotton tees and solid blouses to give you a really fantastic look.
