{dress for less} Preparing for Fall with Jean Trends

  Monday, August 6, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
I know we are still in the midst of Summer, but Fall is my favorite season (for Fashion and weather) and tons of Fall trend updates are beginning to appear online.  I, for one, am very happy that the colored/printed/textured jean look is still very much on trend.  Not that it being off-trend would stop me from wearing it. In my case, I am VERY excited to wear my burgundy Current/Elliot leopard print jeans with my new Theyskens' Theory leather jacket!

Shopbop recently posted a lookbook illustrating many of the new denim trends that are emerging for Fall!  I decided to create some cheaper versions of the looks (and linked the actual pieces).  Who else is ready for Fall fashion?

Tip: If you are in the US, head to TJ Maxx and Marshalls for the latest designer jeans for great prices! Last time I went I found giraffe print jeans, lace print jeans and more! (I resisted buying them)

Another lesson learned in this post: when you can't find what you want in womenswear, check the men's section!
Actual Pieces: MOTHER Jeans, Antipodium Sweater, Tibi Top, Madison Harding Booties

Actual Pieces: Citizens of Humanity Corduroy Pants, McQ - Alexander McQueen Leather Jacket (sold out), MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Top, Stuart Weitzman Pumps

Actual Pieces: 7 For All Mankind Jeans, Haute Hippie Tank (sold out), Equipment Blouse, Maison Martin Margiela Pumps

Actual Pieces: AG Adriano Goldschmied Jeans, Elizabeth and James Blazer, KAIN Label Sweater, A.L.C. Blouse, Alexander Wang Booties
