fall trends to try: the denim report!

It's the most WONDERFUL time of the year around the blog these days as I kick off the "fall trends to try" series!!!! This is one of my all time favorite blog series' and while it has evolved over the years, it is still designed and brought to you to do two major things for you this fall: 1) clue you in on what I think are the easiest and most stylish trends to try this fall season and 2) give you tons of tips and tricks on how to style these trends for everyday wear. For the next few weeks this blog will be all-fall-all-the-time and when we are done you (and I) will have a firm plan for our fall style and back to school shopping (if that applies to you!).

 If you are like me, you absolutely love to comb the magazines, blogs and catalogs this time of year to see what the new trends are going to be for the season (or if you don't love that... don't worry, I'll do all the work for you!). However, I kept finding each season that the trends that the magazines and runways were predicting were just NOT suitable for my lifestyle as a busy mom (or for that matter... most everyday gorgeous ladies!). It left me bummed and discouraged. So instead of lamenting I just figured I would chart out my own trends for the season based on what I was seeing and loving in the stores, blogs, catalogs, etc and report them here to you. How easy is that?

Today's trend features a full report on what is hot with denim this season. While it's hard to say that denim is "trending" this fall - because it usually is a must-have each fall season - I will say that denim seems to have a stronger presence in the fall style season than in years past.  The bright denim colors of previous seasons are being replaced by more moody textures and subdued tints.  Denim this year is all about subtle texture and sophistication.

Patterns like a relaxed camo or a hint of floral pattern or even new textures like wax coated denim (a new favorite of mine!) are taking center stage for fall fashion.  In addition we are seeing a disappearance of a low-rise denim in exchange for a much more flattering mid-rise.  I know I love the body hugging mid-rise style much more than a body spilling low-rise jean.  Here I featured a few of my favorite styles this season and then styled a few into outfits as well.

What new denim trends are you most excited about this season? I'd love to know!
