Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was hosted in Berlin. Denim made a big statement in No Ifs fashion show, from overalls to jeans and shirts; the styles were plain and not distressed, they are going for a more cleaner look with denim for next season.
The other trends I noticed in DIMITRI, Sam Frenzel, Penkov and Lena Hoscheck’s fashion shows were trench coats, leather pants and plaid. Trench coats are a staple piece for the autumn/winter wardrobe, I found it very interesting that they are pairing the long trench coats with boots or heels, it does look pretty hot but depending on where you live I don’t think this trend will work too well, bare legs in winter is something I am not a fan of.
Plaid was a big part of Lena Hoschecks runway show, she went for the older classic look of fitted shirts and trousers with plaid being a huge part of the print. I am a fan of checked shirts but I don’t like too much of it. It was a huge staple in Roberto Cavalli’s fashion show as well, plaid pants as well as the jackets. He also used animal print.
Bold and bright colours on long and floaty dresses were also standing out in No Ifs collection, like always, these pieces you can not go wrong with!
Another huge trend that I think might take off was dresses over leather skinny leggings/pants. I really really like this look, it combines the rock chick feel with a girly and bold vibe very well. I hope we see this style more often. I included loads of photos for you to see in the gallery below. Also included are celebs who attended wearing denim.

I saw this article about Denim Leggings, slating them and saying how horrible they are… It’s worth a read but I don’t think the person who is writing it has actually tried denim leggings properly. She is assuming they are so tight they cut off your circulation and are really bad for you. Most of us who own denim leggings, especially the premium brands, know that they are very very comfy and just like normal leggings, they are not some horrible, really really tight, devil jeans that you can’t breathe in. 7 For All Mankind, Paige Premium, Citizens of Humanity, Current/Elliott and so many other brands have super comfortable jeggings, you just have to try them to find that out. I was wondering what is your opinion on denim leggings? Do you find them comfy and really cute to go under your longer tops? Or do you dislike the way they look and feel? I’m actually glad they came out, I love skinnys but a lot of them were too tight and not very comfortable so making them like leggings was a life saver!I wear them all the time with longer tops and boots, flats or heels, they are very versatile.

Does anyone actually look good in jeggings? Rebecca Dana on the evil spawn of jeans and leggings. I can’t feel my legs.
We are now three seasons into the 21st century’s worst fashion trend, in which women suck, pull, and squeeze themselves into denim-colored sausage casings and then waddle around pretending they’re wearing blue jeans. Just looking at these tragic hybrid “pants” can cut off a person’s circulation. Actually putting on a pair is a clinically proven health hazard.
Yet the scourge of the “jeggings” persists.
They are everywhere: On Whitney Port, doe-eyed star of MTV’s The City; dip-dyed onto ubiquitous British model Agyness Deyn; bunched up on the floor of American Apparel fitting rooms; stretched like a helium balloon across the entire Jersey Shore. With a finger in each belt loop, they have even huffed and puffed and hauled their way up into the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two percent Lycra-spandex, at a minimum, and dyed to look just like 501s, with fake back pockets straining against even the slimmest rump and obscene little painted-on notches where the fly should be: They look good on precisely no one. But now, in 2010, after a year and a half in a recession, when we’re all supposed to be a little wiser and more sensible about our purchases, these horrible things are still flying off the shelves. Last summer, Women’s Wear Daily reported that such vaunted brands as Seven for All Mankind, BCBG, and, yes, even Levi’s were on the hunt for the latest “superstretchy denim” that will suction ever-tighter against women’s legs. Which means we have at least another season of acid-washed, faux-distressed, cotton-polyester leggings to come.

The Spring/Summer 2010 runways, it was a for sure that double denim will still be big this coming spring. The Chloe and D&G shows all had this trend walking on their catwalks. You’re asking, so how would you wear this trend on the streets? You thought it was just a look for the cowboys? Wrong. The editors at Elle Magazine have put together a “How To” on how to pull this look off. The garments should always be two different shades, like a medium washed top with a darker bottom. Also, too much denim on one body can be… let’s just say too much denim. So, break up the denim with a different material such as leather. The key to wearing this trend is to keep it simple. You don’t need to add much to the look, avoid any of the acid or tie dye washes.

How cute are these? Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Denim Platforms. I love them! These shoes are one of the best denim shoes I have seen, they look really sexy and are of course what our Blog is all about, Denim! Don’t you think they are hot? They will set you back about $895 though. They would look great paired with some super skinny ankle peg jeans in a lighter or darker wash then the shoe itself. You can buy them at Bergdorfgoodman.
