Denim Trends for Fall 2012

Colored denim, spring and summer's hottest trend is carrying over into fall wardrobes. Popping up everywhere in splashes of blue, burgundy, bright red and earth tones like moss green, clay and rust. Celebrities like Sophia Bush and Kate Middleton are already transitioning their ensembles to autumn hues.

What other styles of denim are popular for the impending fall season?

Everything old is new again this season with denim. From patterned to coated, slouchy to distressed, here is a rundown of the upcoming denim trends for the fall/winter 2012 season.

Cropped Denim: Yup, we are back to this trend again. Best worn with statement making heels or sky-high platforms. Roll them, cuff them or buy them at ankle length; this trend is back in full force!

Boyfriend Denim: The slouchy, borrowed from the boys style, a popular favorite from the 1990s is back with an updated twist. There is something about this cool relaxed fit with an edgy feel that we love. Gentle rips and distressed details give this trend a slight edge. Pair with your favorite sweater or a feminine top to give it a girly sweet jolt.

Printed/Patterned Denim: Take your colored denim up a notch, if you dare. Floral denim was in full bloom for spring and summer and the trend is transitioning to fall in forms of animal print, baroque and graphic print patterns. Maximize this look by pairing with a single color and minimal jewels to keep it from being too loud.

Coated/Waxed Denim: This unique treatment resembles that of leather and it's sexy and fashion forward. Metallic hues and neutral hues are popular for fall. Pair with an embellished tank and cropped jacket or an open weave sweater and boots for a sensational look.

Ashley Greene Covers Nylon's August 2012 Issue

Ashley Greene is a two time cover girl in the month of August. Not only is the Twilight star featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan, but she also shines on the cover of Nylon magazine next month. The brunette beauty is featured on the magazine's denim issue cover looking causal chic wearing a black Moschino vintage blazer, A What Goes Around Comes Around tee and bandana paired with Element cut-off shorts and Dsquared2 shoes. The 25-year-old dishes on dating and the tabloids, her past modeling days and her instant fame thanks to Twilight.

Ashley on dating and the tabloids: “Imagine going out with a girl one night, then the next day she’s like, ‘We’re hooking up! This is serious!  It’s this overload of someone saying, ‘This is what this is, even though we’ve only been on one date and I don’t even know your middle name.’ Everything has a title immediately.”

Ashley on her modeling days before becoming the face of DKNY: “I knew I was never going to be a supermodel. I mean, I’m 5'5"—it’s not going to happen unless you’re Kate Moss, which I’m not. And until you hit a certain level in the modeling world, it’s really rough: You’re never tall enough, you’re never thin enough, there’s always another girl. It just wasn’t for me anymore.”

Ashley on her instant Twilight fame: “Right when I was cast, my IMDb STARmeter [a chart that tracks actors based on how many searches are done on them] went through the roof—all of ours did, and we hadn’t even done anything yet! Now I have to remind myself that not everything is always going to be like that.”
