Spring/Summer 2012 jeans trends

A friend asked me recently what this year's jeans trends were. I replied "prints" and "color", and immediately I decided to blog about this. It took some time though, for some reason I didn't manage to finish this post until now, hope you like it.

If you ask me about the favorite fit of the season, I would say anything is ok as last years have confirmed that skinny jeans, flares and boyfriend jeans are as classic (or more) than the usual bootcut and straight leg jeans. So what makes the difference this year? The fabric, the color, the pattern and some details !


Tie dye jeans (topshop), AG tie tyed dusty mink (revolveclothing), J Brand big flower jeans (shopbop), floral jeans (newlook), AG blue ikat jeans (shopbop), pastel geometric jeans (topshop), stripped jeans (netàporter)and pastel leopard (netàporter) both from Current/elliott (netàporter)

 This is THE denim trend of the year, printed jeans. It started last year with animal prints (remember my ♥ grey leopard C/E ?), and in 2012 prints are even going crazier, you will see flowers (here), geometric prints, tie dye and ikat and any other pattern you might think of.

Flare, the new classic

Light blue MiH flare jeans (net-a-porter), Levis 70s flares (asos), 7FaM low-rise flares (net-a-porter), Stella Mccartney bell-bottom jeans (mytheresa), Mango flares (here), Isabel Marant Leon jeans (mytheresa)

A flare jeans is a new classic, even though not everyone is a fan I do believe they suit every body type, you just need to choose the fit that suits your body, and for that I mean the rise: low, mid or high, one of these should be perfect for you. For Spring an Summer choose a light blue wash for a 70s look.


Christopher Kane flares (net-a-porter), Neon yellow jeans (asos), New look neon purple jeans (newlook), True Religion green neon jeans (jades24), blue, orange, pink and yellow AG jeans (matchesfashion), Cropped neon pink jeans (topshop)

This trend is so 80s, just pair a neon jeans with neutrals pieces from your wardrobe and you're right on trend.


Zara pink jeans (zara), Topshop (here), 7FaM (asos), yellow heans (newlook), Paige mint verdugo jeans (nordstrom), J Brand pink jeans (stylebop, sold out), pastel orange MiH jeans (net-a-porter), blush jeans (mango)

Do I need to introduce the pastels trend? What I like about the pastel jeans is that you can wear them anyway you like and dressed them in so many different ways: pair them with a navy blazer, a slik blouse and ballet flats and you're chic for the office; wear them with a loose sweater and studded slippers for a relaxed sunday brunch.

I personally love the prints trends, but as I already have a grey leopard pair and one floral jeans, I think I will stay away from prints for some time. This season I think my favorite will be my MiH flare jeans, let's see if I am not going to change my mind in the next coming weeks/months...

How about you, what is your favorite trend ? What do you have already in your wardrobe and what is in yor wish list ?

  1. Il y a un jeans Neon canonissime, chez Closed, cette saison. Vraiment Miam (mais connais pas le prix). Dans tous ceux exposés, c'est le Flare Stella McCartney, le "tapisserie JBrand, et le pastel Mih que je préfère.

  2. De quelle couleur le jeans Closed ? J'ai vu le jaune fluo, il est à tomber mais j'hésite un peu pour les jeans fluo finalement... Ils sont canons maintenant mais j'ai vraiment peur de me lasser. Le tapisserie à fleurs est top top, celui-là même si je me lasse c'est pas grave :)
    et les flares, oui oui oui !! je craque pour mon nouveau MiH, bientôt sur le blog, xx Marta

    1. Effectivement, le fluo peut lasser. Mais la coupe me plaît énormément. Et oui, j'adore les flare MIH (mais ils se laissent bcp aller), mais vise plutôt une autre coupe chez eux pour cet été (le Paris).

    2. je ne connaissais pas le Paris, je viens de voir et il est top, modèle crop pile sur la tendance :) par contre pour le tissu tu auras le même problème, dès qu'il y a du stretch ça se laisse un peu (beucoup) aller.

  3. wrong myth going that only oily-skinned people are likely to produce
    acne|Many Another someones think that acne makes people with oily skin alone}.

    Well, emphatically wrong|things are indeed
    different}! pick out victims on such criteria|There are other criteria
    that affect the appearance of acne and the skin type is not one
    of them}; notwithstanding right that it makes less people with dry skin on the common|in certain cases, people with oily skin are more taken by
    this dermatological condition}. An unhealthy diet, hormonal changes,
    bacterial infections and a chaotic life style represent the right
    premises for a dry acne skin outburst. stand from it, the first important thing is to recognize
    the causes and utilize a targeted therapy to get rid of the acne
    lesions|Before starting any targeted treatment, it is main to recognize the causes behind the acne problem}.

    Even, a double treatment is necessary mostly: one for the skin
    dryness and another to avoid skin dryness}.
