No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher’s dirty looks. You can take that schoolyard chant to the bank vault for another year. School is starting up again, which is great for some, less so for others. To me, it is bittersweet because it symbolizes a sad goodbye to the dog days of summer, and time to get cracking again, but it also means gorgeous fall fashion finds. I still cringe at the thought of September 1st, but the one positive thing that I associate with Labor Day is getting a fresh new pair of jeans to wear, as you join your friends who you haven’t seen in months, and show off your new duds on that first day of class. All these years later, I aim to pull out a new pair of jeans on that first Casual Friday, post-Labor Day. It helps ease some of the pain of the August so long, farewell auf weidersehen goodbye.
My all time favourite pair of jeans had a rainbow on the bum. I don’t think I want a rainbow highlighting my derrière anymore, but I was a kid back then and bum woes were not on my radar. I just thought it looked awesome. Today, fortunately, we have more options to choose from. So many in fact, that the odds of seeing your doppleganger in twin trousers goes way down the maximum likelihood estimation.
This year’s jeans are certain to satisfy every taste and shape. Mid-to-higher waisted fit and flares are back for those that love the long, lean legged look and pulled in middle offered by this fabulous cut. But do not fret if you saved every penny last year to finally indulge in a pair of premium denim skinnies because they are equally as on trend and perfect when paired with the oversized, triangular shaped tops. Girlfriend and boyfriend jeans are one hot-ticket and ideal for those that would rather have a slightly looser and more comfortable fit to their jeans, never having to worry if you are having a bloat day or camouflaging a muffin top.
If you crave a little more kick to your denim, why not try on a pair of patchwork pants for that modern day bohemian look. For those that love all that glitters in life, don’t fret because embellished and adorned jeans are hot to trot. Denim overalls are still en pleine forme for fall, and so too are frayed hems, great for the live hard, play hard gal. If you work in “one of those” offices (sorry) where wearing jeans to work is an occasional perk, why not consider the more elegant trouser jean or wide legged jean that makes just about every woman look leaner. And if double denim done T2T is more your thing, that too is on the table. Pick a denim trouser suit, skirt suit or jean dress. Also of interest this season are denim vests, denim quilted coats, jumpers, rompers and overalls, denim trench coats, denim skirts (A-line or straight), culottes, light wash, medium wash, dark wash, waxed, ripped, distressed, all are available in the shops for you to pick from this fall season. Heart’s desire, pink-y swear.
You seriously can’t pick wrong this season because there is a pair for one and a pair for all. Pick your price point, pick your perfect pair, just don’t avoid picking at all. You won’t have far to go so please just try, try, try and find your new favourite jeans for 2015.
Viva la denim! Long live the jean!
