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

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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
