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.
