Fal denim jean fashion

Northwest, West Coast, Southwest, South, Mid West, East Coast, New England. No matter which region of the United States you are living, there is a denim fashion trend for you. Our blog usually focuses on the most common global trending styles and fashions, but this week, we take a look at what YOU our readers are wearing. As we move into the cooler months of Fall, see what denim styles are trending in YOUR area of the country. Whether you choose to dress like the locals or another region of the U.S., scroll below to see what denim fashion fits YOUR personality and style.

Northwest style skinny jeans  Northwest style skinny rolled jeans and plaid shirt

NORTHWEST SKINNY JEANS

Characterized by its proximity to nature, the Pacific Northwest’s fashion favors comfortable casual and outdoor cool. Since the weather is usually cool and rainy, Northwesterners are always prepared with a light flannel, warm coat, scarf, or stocking cap to stay trendy through the elements. The denim fashion of choice seen street style throughout the region is the skinny jean, easy to slip underneath boots or cuff at the bottom. We love Hudson’s Marcy skinny leg jean or go skin tight with the Nico super skinny.  Instead of traditional blue, try AC Collection’s gray skinny jeans, as pictured above, or the distressed gray skinnies for a chic “rocker” look. If you want to add some color to your Fall denim wardrobe, be sure to include Citizen’s of Humanity’s Thompson mid-rise skinny jeans in “shocking pink,” paired easily with any of your favorite button down shirts or oversized sweaters. Grab your latte, hit the trails, and stay in fashion with the Pacific Northwest’s favorite skinny leg denim.

West Coast

WEST COAST “BOHO” FLARE

With mild temperatures and year-round sun and surf, the West Coast style leans toward California casual and “Boho” chic. Even throughout Fall and Winter, this region rarely requires heavy coats or warm boots. “Be like the cool kids” this Season and look for denim styles in wide leg and flare silhouettes. We love Hudson’s light wash Ferris flap jeans or try 1921’s distressed flare paired with Hale Bob’s ivory lace tunic and Free People’s wide brim floppy hat. For a dressier Cali cool style, go with AC Collection’s medium or black wash flare denim topped with Hale Bob’s white sequined lace sweater and accessorized with Sam Edelman fringe ankle booties and Free People’s fringe clutch. Keep Summer’s spirit all Season long with the West Coast’s carefree “Boho” chic flare style.

Southwest bootcut denim with fringe

SOUTHWEST BOOTCUT

Quintessential Southwest style includes silver, turquoise, fringe, and the bootcut jean. Designed to fit over your favorite boots while lengthening your line, this silhouette flatters most figures with a lower and wider cut on the hips and a snug fit through the legs and thighs. We like AC Collection’s medium wash bootcut jean or try Hudson’s signature mid-rise bootcut. If you prefer a darker wash, go with Citizen’s of Humanity’s Amber ultimate bootcuts or 7 For All Mankind’s “Cozumel” denim. Pair your pants with a simple tank or Tee topped with a Minnie Rose cozy Cashmere fringe shawl favored by celebrities. Or go with a “Southwestern” styled print in Hale Bob’s fuchsia Mayan tribal tunic or coral “cold-shoulder” blouse paired with Franco Sarto low heel ankle booties.

Southern denim dress and cowboy boots

SOUTHERN DENIM DRESS

Kick up your heels, dust off your boots, and grab your “pardner” in the South’s favorite denim style this Fall. Though Southerners do like their jean pants, the denim dress is a huge trend this Season. We love Ralph Lauren’s classic denim shirtdress as pictured above, or go with an updated look as found on this year’s Runway with 7 For All Mankind’s overall dress, Diane Von Furstenberg’s wrap dress, or Victoria Beckham’s A line shaped style. You could also try designer Tom Ford or Chloe’s Runway style with a chic denim skirt paired with your favorite button down blouse or sweater. Say “howdy y’all” and shop AC Collection’s Diana denim skirt accessorized with a chic pair of cowboy styled boots and you are ready for a “boot-scootin'” good time.

Midwest relaxed straight leg jeans

MIDWEST STRAIGHT LEG

Open fields, long walks, changing colors, a cool breeze. All these things signify Fall is in the air in the Midwest. Dress appropriately for the changing Season with the straight leg denim jean. Go classic in Hudson’s Carly dark wash straight leg jean paired with your favorite sweater, “puffer” vest, and cozy hiking boots from L.L. Bean. Dress up your look in Hale Bob’s black satin blouse with lace and Steve Madden’s traditional black pumps. Update the straight leg style with some color and go with Goldsign’s army green Misfit jeans paired with your favorite patterned blouse or Liberty Garden’s new gray ombre knit sweater. However you choose to style your look, be sure to include the straight leg denim style as a wardrobe staple this Fall.

EAST COAST CROPPED

Morning or Night. Casual or Dressy. Play day or work day. The East Coast has fallen in love with the rolled cropped denim jean. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Olivia Palermo, celebrities have been spotted all over NYC sporting the latest denim trend. Not just reserved for running errands, be bold and dress up your cropped jeans with a leather jacket and high heels for a night on the town. Make your jeans “work worthy” by pairing with a chic blazer and comfy all day pumps. We love Joe’s classic rolled jeans or Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash cropped jeans. For 2 looks in 1, start with AC Collection’s Mystique “distressed” boyfriend jeans and wear long for errand day or lunch with the girls. Change up the style and roll the cuffs to your desired “cropped” length, pairing with chic strappy heels and Hale Bob’s floral lace sweater. Skinny, relaxed, or distressed, bring a bit of “the big Apple” into your fashion closet this Season with the cropped denim pant.

New England preppy denim

NEW ENGLAND PREPPY

Home of our founding fathers, New England is characterized by patriotic pride, traditional values, and timeless classics. Styles tend towards the preppy look with denim and khakis, sweaters and polos, and oxfords and boaters. New Englanders change their denim fashion up to achieve a relaxed yet tailored style, so anything goes with jeans. Get in on New England’s favorite look with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash straight leg jean or go darker with 7 For All Mankind’s black skinny jean, and pair with your favorite denim button down underneath Liberty Garden’s fur trimmed cable knit sweater. Switch things up and grab Joe’s Jeans ivory skinny high water crop jeans topped with a striped button down and cozy knit cardigan from Lacoste. Complete your look with updated patent leather Oxfords from Kate Spade or go casual with Vans’ classic white sneaker. Don’t forget to tie a snug sweater around your neck as the crisp cool air starts to settle in for Fall.

BALLET IS FASHION

Cole Haan ballet inspired fashion

In celebration of last weekend’s National Dance Day across America, this week we focus our blog on how dance is infiltrating fashion and social media. While dance has always had a strong presence in the European culture, the U.S. has lagged behind when it comes to infusing the performing arts into mainstream media. With Vogue’s recent article on the rise of ballet in fashion as well as the trending crop of “Ballet Barre” and “Bar Method” workout programs, perhaps our country is ready to embrace the mixture of this cultured art form with everyday living. Take a look at our favorite “ballet” inspired fashion finds and start incorporating a little classical ballet into your everyday wardrobe.

Ballet pink tutu  pale pink leggings ballet inspired fashion

PINK LEGGINGS

If the idea of chiffon and tulle are little too much for you, start your collection with the colors of ballet. From Altuzarra to Oscar de la Renta, the runways this year were filled with ballet’s favorite colors: blush, pale pink, and ivory. Part of a ballet dancer’s required performance wear includes pink tights, in order to lengthen the line of the leg in her pointe shoes. Take a tip from the stage, and grab a pair of pale pink leggings to add to your Summer collection. We love Hale Bob’s newest pink suede leggings now available at our online store Posh at Play. Pair with a cami and ivory lace Kimono from Liberty Garden for a sweet Summer style. Carry the look into the Fall months by topping with a cozy powder pink sweatshirt from Liberty Garden and low ankle boots.

black ballet unitard  black jumpsuit ballet inspired fashion

ALL BLACK 

One of the simplest ways to achieve a dancer’s sleek figure is to dress head-to-toe in all black. In order to achieve the longest lines possible and a perfect shape, a dancer’s “go to” class wear outfit will always be either a solid black unitard or a black leotard and black stirrup tights. Get the look with this Season’s popular jumpsuit trend. From Giuliana Rancic at this year’s Grammys to Monica Potter at the People’s Choice Awards, celebrities are embracing the jumpsuit trend not only for everyday wear but also on the Red Carpet as well. Get your own sleek ballerina look with Liberty Garden’s black lace jumpsuit paired with your favorite black pumps for extra length. Or go “Athleisure” with Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte leggings paired with a fitted black laser cut cami or stretch black lace bodysuit from Hale Bob for cooler Fall days.

black and blue two toned ballet leotard Svetlana Zakharova two toned top with white skinny jeans

TWO TONED

Maybe it’s the years of disciplined training as a student wearing the same boring black leotard and pink tights everyday to class. Maybe it’s not being able to afford a lot of new dancewear on a dancer’s tight budget. Or maybe it’s the drafty theaters that teach dancers to layer up. Whatever the reason, step into a professional ballet class and you will see an array of mismatched colors and layers on each dancer. Pictured above, professional ballerina Svetlana Zakharova of the Kirov Ballet nails the trending “two toned” look by layering her basic black unitard with a bright cap sleeve leotard and white practice tutu as she rehearses her role in “Swan Lake.” Get a similar style this Season with Liberty Garden’s two-toned Terry knit short sleeve shirt paired with Hale Bob’s black mixed media leggings. Complete your “ballerina style” with Ballet Beautiful’s newest satin ballet flats in pale pink or hot red, featured in this week’s Vogue.

grey ballet sweater grey Liberty Garden loose long sleeve sweater

GRAY SWEATER

Speaking of layers, if it’s one thing all dancers know, it’s to always bring along a sweater or sweatshirt. In order to prevent injury throughout the long day of rehearsals, a dancer’s muscles must stay warm and stretched. In every dancer’s bag, you will find an array of leg warmers, back warmers, baggy sweatshirts, ballet sweaters, knit shorts, insulated pants, and more. Get your own dancer style with a loose fit soft gray sweater and black leggings. We like Hale Bob’s Gray Ombre knit sweater paired with black faux leather leggings and ankle boots. For warmer days, layer your sweater with Liberty Garden’s cool ivory lace skort and Cole Haan’s Stagedoor Ballet flats specially designed by 3 New York City Ballet dancers combining functionality, form, and fit.

pale ballet pink lyrical dress pale pink shift dress athleisure street style NYC blush pink Liberty Garden shift dress

BALLET PINK DRESS

Channel your inner ballerina this Season with the epitome of elegance and grace in a pale pink dress. Since the color pink is trending this year on the runways, there is no better time than now to bring out this luscious and feminine color in style. You can go classic in a pale pink shift dress paired with tailored heels and a simple clutch. Or, modernize the look with your favorite comfy sneakers, a crossbody bag, and oversized sunglasses for an “Athleisure” style. If you can’t decide which look you like best, go with Hale Bob’s blush pink ultra suede shift dress perfect for work or play, dressy or casual. No matter what the occasion, you’ll look pretty in pink this Summer and Fall Season.

Svetlana Zakharova Carmen red dress red lace long sleeve dress

“CARMEN” RED

Another common color used in the ballet world is bright red. In ballets like “Carmen,” “Don Quixote,” and “The Nutcracker,” the color red is used to depict the playful or “fiery” personality of the character. What better way to express your inner “diva” this Season than with bright red. Get a similar look to Russian ballerina Svetlana Zakharova’s “Carmen” in Hale Bob’s long sleeve red lace dress with a slight flare skirt for extra sass. If red from head to toe is a bit much for you, try just a touch with Hale Bob’s red suede leggings paired with Liberty Garden’s lace back swing Tee or Hale Bob’s flowy long sleeve red silk blouse paired with your favorite jeans, perfect for now through the Winter holidays.

white sheer ballerina dress and red pointe shoes white A line dress with beige pullover and red flat shoes

CLASSIC WHITE

Finally, if all the pinks and flowy fabrics are too “girly” for your taste, no need to fear. You can still get in on the “ballet” trend with a classic white A line dress, flattering on any size and figure. Go a la “The Red Shoes” by pairing your dress with bright red flats for a pop of color, adding a belt and handbag for perfect street style. We love Hale Bob’s classic ivory floral lace A line dress accessorized with Sam Edelman ballerina flats or “get on pointe” with Topshop’s NEW Pointy toe lace up shoes. We also love Hale Bob’s “Cinderella” tank A line dress with a perfectly fit “ballerina” bodice for a flattering figure.

ballet meets fashion denim jeans

One of the most demanding art forms, a ballerina’s goal is always to achieve the perfect balance of form, grace, beauty, pose, strength, and confidence with an air of calm and ease. Become your own ballerina this Summer and Fall with our great fashion tips. Whether you choose to wear blush pink or a tulle skirt or the newest lace up ballerina flats, you are sure to exude your graceful yet confident presence this Season wherever you go. Remember our Posh at Play motto and you can do no wrong this year: Be You, Be Fabulous, and always Be Feminine.

SIZZLING SUMMER WORK STYLES

Many of this Season’s trendiest styles that we’ve mentioned in our Summer blogs are perfectly suited to fit the workplace. With just the right accessories, your office outfit can transition from day to night, from playtime to work time. Take a look at our top picks that’ll keep you looking fabulous at the office and chic on the streets.

patterned pencil skirt and blouse Summer work wear

PATTERNED PENCIL SKIRT

Forgo the solids, and brighten up your Summer work style with a tribal patterned pencil skirt. As the weather warms, pair your skirt with a cool silk camisole and slide on heels, adding a bright fuchsia jacket for chilly offices or after work cocktails. We love Hale Bob’s brightly patterned knit stretch Ponte pencil skirt paired perfectly with a black faux leather tank top. For extra hot days, go with Hale Bob’s silk stretch black embroidered tank or black studded sleeveless top made from 100% silk to help keep you cool. Complete your look with Hale Bob’s bright blue or purple Bolero jacket or go a bit more neutral in black or white.

Black jumpsuit for the office place

WIDE LEG JUMPSUIT

For an all-in-one chic Summer style, try the wide leg jumpsuit. Easily adaptable for the workplace, go “Boho” by pairing your stylish jumpsuit with thick nude wedges or go classic with black patent leather pumps. When the weather is at it’s warmest, look for strapless or tank-styled jumpsuits to keep you cool. We love Liberty Garden’s black lace and twill jumpsuit, newly arrived at our online store Posh at Play. Complete your office style with a trendy lace Kimono from Liberty Garden or top with a sophisticated silk purple scarf from Hale Bob.

Summer Lace dress for the office

IVORY LACE DRESS

From Helo Rocha to Dolce & Gabbana, ivory lace from head-to-toe is all the rage on this year’s runways, and continuing into the Fall Season. Don’t just reserve your lace for weddings or formal occasions. Bring your dress out to work with you this Summer by pairing with leg-lengthening nude ankle strap pumps like Steve Madden’s best seller “Anibell” or go retro with Sergio Rossi’s suede kitten heel pump. Three of our favorite Summer ivory lace dresses to try are Hale Bob’s tailored cool cotton crocheted dress, romantic tank dress, or embroidered mesh dress for chillier workplaces. Your lace dress is sure to keep you cool in the office as well as for after-hours cocktails.

floral summer dress for the workplace

FLORAL DRESS

Nothing says “Summer” more than a bright floral patterned sundress. Don’t be afraid to bring a little touch of sunshine to the office on your next workday. In order to keep your look “professional,” steer clear from sandals and wedges, and look for more tailored and structured accessories to complete your look. Start with Hale Bob’s purple floral tank dress, featuring a mock-wrap silhouette to hug your feminine curves. Complete your look with Steve Madden’s ankle strap pumps and elegant pearl strand from St. John Collection. We also love Hale Bob’s purple printed long sleeve floral dress if you tend to get chilly at the office or the black and white floral print shirtdress, perfect to pair with a black blazer for a shabby chic style.

Summer shorts and blazer for the office

SHORTS AND BLAZER

When the weather becomes unbearable, simply switch out your tailored pants for shorts in the hottest months of Summer. Look for cotton shorts with pleating and cuffs, or patterned silk shorts to keep you cool yet sophisticated at the office. Don’t forget to complete your style with a white button down or silk tank and structured blazer. We love Hale Bob’s black cotton eyelet shorts, sure to keep you cool, or go with the silky black and white printed shorts for a fun patterned style. Complete your look with Hale Bob’s black studded silk tank top and coral printed silk jacket and you are sure to turn heads at the office with your chic work fashion.

black wide leg trousers and floral blouse

WIDE LEG PANTS AND FLORAL BLOUSE

Bring the Hawaiian Islands to work with you in a colorful floral print blouse paired perfectly with wide leg pants to allow air flow on the hottest Summer days. Not only are wide leg trousers a trending look this Season, but also they will help keep you cooler rather than tight, constricting leggings and pants. We love Hale Bob’s coral silk crinkle tunic or try the black silk floral button down for a more tailored approach. Pair with AC Collection’s black flare jeans or go breezy in Hale Bob’s black studded satin wide leg pants. For after hours errands or dinner with the girls, roll up the cuffs of your blouse and tie in front for a more relaxed, post- work Summer style.

black Summer maxi dress for work

MAXI DRESS

And finally, as we’ve been talking about the trend all Season long, what better way to wear the maxi dress than in the office. Dress up your maxi dress style by pairing with a vest or jacket at work. Get a similar look as pictured above with Liberty Garden’s black cami crinkle dress topped with AC Collection’s grey scoop neck vest. Change up your maxi dress style by adding Hale Bob’s ivory Bolero jacket or pair with the white studded sleeveless jacket for a bit of glamour. No need to save your maxi dress for the beach or pool. Bring out your Summer style Monday morning at the office.

COLORFUL PATTERNED LEGGINGS

We love the colorful patterns trending for Spring in all areas of fashion but particularly with leggings. Look for a mixed patterned legging to brighten your daytime activities and workout routine. Pair your colorful leggings for daytime with a basic tee and blazer, accessorized with chic tall boots for a Winter to Spring transition. Later in the day, shed your blazer, tee, and boots, and pair your leggings with a sports bra and running shoes, and you are ready for your workout. We love Hale Bob’s stretch printed jersey leggings in a variety of colorful patterns perfect to mix and match a variety of wardrobe staples already in your closet.

COLOR BLOCKED LEGGINGS

As we mentioned in our previous blog “Trending Prints in Fashion for 2015,” color blocking is a popular trend this Season, juxtaposing two or more colors together in a whimsical pattern. We love actress Blake Lively’s color blocked leggings paired with heeled boots and an oversized jacket for work or daytime errands. Transition into your workout easily by slipping into your Sketchers GOMeb Speed 3 running shoes, just released for 2015 with a better fit and durability for long distance running and racing. We love Hale Bob’s color block suede leggings for a chic daytime look and an insulated warmth for your workout. No one will suspect that you’ve just come from your morning run with these fashionable leggings.

LEATHER TRIMMED LEGGINGS

For a sleek modern style, we love the leather trimmed leggings. Try Hale Bob’s black quilted faux leather leggings for fashionable style. With leather trimmed leggings you can rock out your daytime look with chic booties and a light sweater for Spring’s chilly winds and amp things up at night by layering a fuchsia blouse with a cute cashmere polka dotted sweater from Saks Fifth Avenue, paired with chic Steve Madden Maarla heels. Squeeze in an afternoon workout on your lunch break by tossing off your sweater and grabbing your running shoes stashed in your car. With chic, easy style, now there’s no excuse NOT to exercise.

BOLD STRIPED LEGGINGS

As we mentioned in “Trending Patterns in Fashion for 2015,” big, bold stripes are IN for Spring and where better to make a fashion forward statement than in the gym? We love Hale Bob’s black and white stretch Ponte leggings, a perfect new addition to your wardrobe this Spring. For daytime, pair your striped leggings with an Alexander Wang sheer black blouse and booties, and transition to your workout wear by pairing with trendy Chuck Taylor All Star leather converse and a plain white Tee. Throw on a leather jacket afterwards for a chic street style on your way home.

SWEATSHIRT

No need to reserve your favorite sweatshirt for only your workouts this Season. Spotted on the streets during Fashion Week from New York to Paris, designers and models are pairing their favorite sweatshirt, whether fitted or baggy, with feminine skirts and sleek leggings. We love Liberty Garden’s collection of sweatshirts, from the faux leather embossed sweatshirt to the crochet lace sweatshirt. For daytime, pair your favorite sweatshirt with 7 For All Mankind black skinny jeans and chic booties. Plan your workout during lunch hour, and pair your sweatshirt with gym shorts or exercise pants. After your workout, spruce up for evening by pairing your sweatshirt with Hale Bob’s sheer lace pencil skirt and Jimmy Choo ivory satin strappy sandals for a chic night on the town.

CARGO LEGGINGS

A new legging trend is mixing cargo pants with a sleek finished style. We love Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte cargo leggings, for a little distinction from all the rest. The side pockets are perfect to hold your keys and phone as you start your workout. Transition to workday wear easily by pairing your cargo leggings with a white Tee, Hale Bob’s black bolero blazer, and black flats. Add strings of necklaces or try Hale Bob’s colorful scarves for that perfect polished touch.

BASIC GRAY LEGGINGS

Instead of reaching for the common black leggings, go lighter this Spring and try cool gray leggings for your daytime fun and workout wear. We love Hale Bob’s basic 5 pocket Ponte silver gray leggings perfectly paired with a gray pullover from Liberty Garden, and Jimmy Choo’s “London” trainers, new for 2015. After your workout, forgo the sweatshirt and sneakers for a bright fuchsia sweater by designer Trina Turk and checkered Sergio Rossi pointy toe pumps for a chic, classic look perfect for daytime errands, lunch with friends, or evening cocktails.

BRIGHT SNEAKERS

A trending fashion style seen all over the runways and at the Fashion Shows from Milan to New York last Season and for Spring 2015, is wearing your sneakers for everyday wear. Designers are pairing the everyday running sneaker with skirts, dresses, and pantsuits for a fun, unique look. No need to toss your sneakers aside after your workout; simply pair them with your favorite dress for daytime fun or skirt for the office. We love New Balance’s 890 V3 for whimsical fun, Mizuno Wave’s Creation 15 in a fun summer pattern, or Gola’s “Libery art Fabrics- Spirit” sneaker in a flirty floral pattern, perfect for Spring.
