The New Jean – Beyond Blue Denim…The evolution of the beloved blue jean continues: The newest and trendiest denim is clad in gorgeous saturated colors, luxe finishes and a riot of pretty patterns. We found some of the hottest pairs to wear.
Indigo hues aren’t going anywhere, but the freshest take on jeans sees bold colors taking center stage. Rocker-chic detailing and super-glam surfaces mean jeans work as well after dark as in the daytime, while skinny and slouchy silhouettes vie for the year’s fave shape.
Colors and Prints: Visible Change
The quickest and easiest way to refresh your jeans wardrobe is with a hit of extroverted color. Try dusty rose, moss green, terracotta or deep maroon. Gotta go blue? Make it a vivid azure. Or take on the neutral trend in rust- or clay-colored denim.
For date night, dancing, weekend dazzle skip the understated hues and dare to shine. Metallics are a huge trend, and skinny jeans gleam with gold, silver and bronze.
Antique floral patterns, brocade and paisley skew retro, animal and reptile designs look classic, and digital and optical prints shout “couture”.
Finishes and Textures: The New Feel
Remember distressed jeans? They’re baaaaack, and this time they’re called “destroyed”. Sometimes the destruction is subtle, with frayed hems finishing otherwise sleek pairs, while other jeans are totally shredded.
Night-right pairs sparkle with sequins, studs and beading, or go supercool with metallic burnout or stamped designs.
A massive trend this year, skinny leather jeans are the skin to be in.
So which style of bold non-blue jeans are you going to rock this season? Whichever you choose, we know you’ll show your fabulous to the world!

A Tango, perhaps? The Tangerine Tango, specifically. Not only is it a dance…it’s a color. A very bright and bold color that holds the honor of being named Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year (Pantone 17-1463). Chosen because of its “sophisticated and dramatic undertones,” Tangerine Tango is a continuation of last year’s winner, Honeysuckle (Pantone 18-2120). The 2011 winner was said to be “inspiration to face life’s everyday troubles with verve and vigor,” with Tangerine Tango building off of that by giving an “energy charge” to move forward. Pretty dramatic language, but these people takes their colors seriously.
And so do we…but in a more fun, lighthearted way!
Celebrities are always on the cusp of the latest trends – Tangerine Tango for everybody!
You’ll find it everywhere in the latest home decor trends, naturally.
Fashion and make-up? Of course!
Lifestyle pieces and gift items…you betcha!
Is the Tangerine Tango a bit too bold, bright, or ELECTRIC for you? Never fear, it can be toned down with just the right touches. You just have to know where to start…
A splash of color can make a big impact! For instance, in this dining room, the strips of orange next to the khaki and white really make the orange pop.
This little girl’s room has white walls and furniture causing the orange and pink to have a high impact on this room. It looks fun and playful.
On the flip, orange and blue are also a great combination. This little boy’s room is almost completely opposite of little girl’s room above, yet is just as awesome. With dark walls, furniture and floors, the orange brightens up the décor.
This sitting area is playing with the idea of color. The blue-grey cabinet, with the orange interior is quite lovely and ties together nicely with the orange chair. I also like the idea of living color, so the light orange flowers are a nice touch
I absolutely love this bathroom. The dark brown with the orange makes a bold statement and is softened by the mosaic tile.
So GO FOR IT! Get your Tangerine Tango on! How will you use it? Where will you showcase this POP of brightness in your home? Share with us!
