2012 Denim Guide: Back to School Edition

Aug 07, 2012

We are so going to miss the denim cutoff shorts from summer, but have no style fears… Things just got more interesting in denim for fall. Last spring jeans popped out in bright colors, the skinnier the better. This fall, style gurus are saying color is still here in fall “OMBRE” colors, “coating”, and patterns. As for style, we’re still seeing skinny jeans for guys and girls. Check out Princess Kate Middleton’s outfit recently worn at the London Olympics.

Ombré Colors

Guys jeans for fallFall styles for guys include skinny, metallic and ombre fall colorsCourtesy of Doctrine Jeans

Ombré is a dyed, printed or woven design that changes gradually from light to dark, and often into stripes of varying shades. Instead of spring brights and floral prints, we’re seeing berry, bronze and coal.

More than Denim

This season, we see cotton jeans coated in or woven with other materials – like the Doctrine men’s Jeans coated in Teflon – the stuff that coats non-stick frying pans! – to give them a shiny finish. For women, we’re seeing metallic threads woven into the jeans in gold, rose and even animal printed shimmer, like these from 7 for all Mankind.

Geometric Patterns

When we’re talking patterns, gone are the spring florals and in are the checkerboard patterns, stripes and lined patterns you may see in geometry class. Like these checkerboard jeans from Ziggy Denim.

B-who-u-r-and-SING
My best friend and I were really close before and hung out all the time, we were both in musicals and both got smaller parts, and if one of us got a bigger part, it was her. Then she took voice lessons with an amazing voice teacher and got a little better, she took lessons for about two weeks and then I decided to take lessons too. After about three weeks people were saying that I was an amazing singer and all of the sudden my maybe-best-friend hardly talks to me. She always seems really sad. (Keep in mind that my friend can't sing well) I don't know if she is jealous or what, and please don't think that i'm conceited by thinking she might be jealous I am just wondering. Please help!

I almost always get along with my cousin but sometimes I burst. my grandma always somehow finds out what I want and gives it my cousin and if my parents are around she treats us equally and that is another thing that makes me mad is she acts like the best grandma in front of my parents but the second they are gone she is a different person
