Congrats to the winner. I'm all kinds of crazy about denim once again, and that September Vogue issue is killer!

Style Redux 2 said...

Keith doesn't know me because I never ever wear denim but some of these are very creative!

Little Rus said...

I love that Vogue photo! Gorgeous legs...
As much as I adore jeans, I've decided to cut down on wearing them. I feel that a woman in me is trying to get out, so I am craving dresses and skirts at the moment. :)

Hope you are having a wonderful day, darling! Please send me some sunshine...

Jaime said...

I like the Miss Sixty harem jean pants. I want to purchase the J Brand Zombie pants BADLY! Luckily, I have seen them on sale ;)

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

Oh, I am so obsessed with DVF right now - I can't even put my infatuation into words. And Brazilian Vogue...that picture - and that denim - is utterly divine! :)

Children of the 90s said...

So much fun denim! I'm kind of feeling the slouchy look, I just don't know if I could quite pull it off.

K.Line said...

God help me, but the whole denim harem pant with pleats thing is starting to look appealing. (Strangely, I saw a woman on the street today wearing them - first time I've seen 'em in real life.)

HiFashion said...

Ahhh, denim: the one trend I couldn't live without. I have a ridiculous amount of jeans and denim skirts.

♥B said...

Those Rich & Skinny bf jeans are hot!

Lauren said...

I've been seeing denim everywhere! My favorite fall denim trend is definitely denim leggings!

Although I rarely wear jeans, these are great picks and fresh ideas!

Belle de Ville said...

Acid wash wins for me. Great pics!

Jenny said...

Not a big fan of denim, but the Max Azria Resort looks chic!

Dream Sequins said...

I am definitely feeling that transition period! It's chilly enough to start layering it up!

Congrats to the winner, BTW :)

Myriam said...

Taylor Sterling said...

The skinny jean is my fav! These are great images!

The Anthology said...

Hooray for beat-up denim. Love that look!

And I especially love how jeans are being reimagined. All of a sudden, they're fun again!

Monica said...

Fun pictures. I want to see a trend come out where people where their distressed jeans with colorful tights underneath. That would be fun.

Missy said...

Great post - I LOVE denim! I recently did a pick of designer jeans on my blog (thanks for being a follower x )

I'll be more competitive in future to try and win!

Great denim selection, as always because the choice of images are such fun to look at and digest.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

All this denim is so fab!!

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Happy wednesday to you, CC!

When I think of Jeans I always have " the war with Balmain jeans" in my mind ;)
When I see them at net-a-porter, stylebop or mytheresa I love them so much ( when not talking about the ridiculous price tag) but my butt and hips are simple in war with these ultra-skinny jeans ;)

Have a beautiful day!

Ela said...

I adore Macaroon Treats, I love that she won!

Oh, Will I ever stop being addicted to jeans? I've been MIA with family and haven't made it to some of my fave blogs, missed your posts CC! xx

Pinky said...

Congrats to the winner!
I am loving this post! Jeans are such a staple, and now they are even allowed in elite clubs. They are as basic as an LBD. I can't wait to finish my diet so I can start buying jeans again =)

Rach said...

Great composition of denim trends. Fashions in jeans never really seem to go away forever. Waistlines always sneak back up and acid wash finds a way to be hip again.

Little Bow Prep said...

Awesome picks! I especially adore the Brazilian Vogue picture!

Zepequeña said...

Congratulations to the winner!

clarewbrown said...

I wonder what would happen to the world is denimn disappeared. Gosh I literally don't know what I would wear half the time. I think that is what will happen in the apocalypse. No tornadoes and land slides. Just the permanent removal of all denim haha

stylewithbenefits said...

Congrats to the winner! Wow, some of those runway looks are way fierce. I really want to change up my routine skinny jeans and add some boyfriend jeans to my closet. I'm also slowly getting into the tie-dye jean trend. Fabulous post to transition into the Fall!

I'm a huge wearer of all things denim...I really do try to stay away from my jeans every once in a while but I just can't help it. love!

MizzJ said...

I'm loving those denim zipper dresses, although I could do with the splattered tie-dye look on them. Denim rules!

The Seeker said...

Denim is not one of the looks I wear on a daily basis, because of a "certain dress code", but I like it and wear it on weekends. I'm searching for some gray pants.

Hope everything is great with you, beautiful!!!

On another note will you be doing your A to Z trends for this new season???
You know I'm a BIG FAN of your posts like that.

Luv

xoxo
