Fall 2014 Denim Trends with GUESS!

Fall is creeping up on us and that means it is denim season, so you can forget shaving your legs for awhile.....just kidding! What denim season really means is that it is time to cozy up and cover up your stems with the Fall 2014 Denim Trends from GUESS. This season denim has veered away from the some of the crazy, wackadoodle printed and coloured jeans of past seasons and has instead focussed on more classic looks such as, grey, dark rinses and, acid washes. If you are a lover of standout denim, no need to fear because there are still some printed styles that will be sticking around such as, snake print jeans. So what are you waiting for? Scroll down to look at some fall denim from GUESS!

Fifty Shades of Grey Denim

There is something about grey denim that reminds of London street style maybe it is the stereotype of grey, dreary England or the stylish London street style stars but whatever the reason may be there is no denying their fashion credibility. The grey shade matches with the dark skies and works really well with a classic fall leather jacket and chunky knit sweater. When shopping this fall season, adding a grey pair of jeans to your denim arsenal would be a wise choice.

The Look of Denim and the Print of a Snake

Animal print of any breed will always be in style and although feline prints are usually the prints of choice, this season it is all about the skin of reptilians. The edgy and exotic snake skin print has a more subtle impact compared to feline-inspired prints and easily looks stylish with an array of colours but neutrals and marigold look especially well with the slithering print. For some style inspiration, look at the outfit of Bar Rafaeli up above.

Dark blue jeans are the T-shirt of the pant world and never go out of style. When fall rolls around pair classic dark blue jeans with fall's trendy robe coats or oversized turtlenecks for a classic look with an extra special touch.

Here at Amanda's Fashion Spot, I believe that distressed denim is one of this year's hottest denim trends and I love how with the right styling they can easily go from grunge chic to just chic! For this fall, distressed denim would like smashing with knits or a menswear-inspired blazer.

In fashion, what is old is new again and acid wash denim is new yet again! The denim staple of the seventies and eighties had made a resurgence and have been seen on Rihanna and Victoria Beckham. When wearing acid wash denim this season take some style cues from the inspiration photograph above and pair them with classic pieces.

The Toronto International Film Festival has arrived and boy has it arrived! The city is buzzing with excitement as celebrities debut their films and enjoy all that our beloved city has to offer.

When you are gallivanting around the city while looking for the yummy Channing Tatum or the stylish Reese Witherspoon, wearing an outfit that is cozy without sacrificing style is key. With the temperature cooling down, a comfy sweater like this one by Titika Active Wear fits the bill with its combination of variegated shades with leather pockets and sleeves. This bright red GUESS bucket bag and grey Manitobah Mukluks keep the overall look playful. Dark denim jeans are a classic must-have for any fall wardrobe and this pair by GUESS is perfect. In the event that you bump into Denzel Washington, you will want to have a notebook to jot down your experience and these bright coloured notebooks from BRIKA are a great choice.

Like Diddy says, "After the party is the after party" and when you attend a TIFF after party wearing this faux fur vest from GUESS is the way to go. With fall just around the corner, there is no better way to ring in the new style season than with a faux fur vest. I love how a faux fur vest instantly makes any outfit look glamorous. Faux fur vests look super fashionable with A-line flirty skirts and this snake print one from GUESS in on trend for fall. To finish off the after party look, slap on this gold watch with a cobalt face from WATCH IT! as the colour complements the vest.

With the city flooded with stars you are bound to attend a gala at some point and this soft pink knee-length dress from, GUESS is a great option. When accessorized with animal print pumps from GUESS and chain link strap rose gold watch from WATCH IT!, the overall look says, "goodbye summer, hello fall and hello party!"

Alex and Ani: Wearing Positive Energy is Always in Style



The past year has really made me realize the importance of positive thoughts, which I have learned in turn breed positive energy. At times when it may feel like you can't catch a break and nothing seems to be working out, it is comforting to have something positive to look at to reassure you that, "this too shall pass". In some cases, it feels even better to wear something that reminds you of the positive energy that surrounds you and the good things that lie ahead. This is why I am happy to share with you my latest Alex and Ani bangle set. The Lotus Peace Petal charm represents illumination, beauty and resilience with the lotus signifying the progression of the soul. The Mother Mary charm epitomizes love and mercy while exemplifying grace, compassion and hope. If you don't know already, Alex and Ani is a positive energy lifestyle brand that creates distinct charms and bangles that can be layered or worn on their own.  Each bangle has its own special detail - a seahorse charm, beads or a positive saying - making the bangles a versatile accessory. If I am getting ready to curl up in bed or heading home from my day job, Alex and Ani fits in right with my look because wearing positive energy is always in style.










Will you be wearing positive energy and trying out Alex and Ani? Let me know in the comments below, Facebook and Twitter! Also, don't forget to check out Amanda's Fashion Spot on Pinterest and Instagram!

Enjoy!
