What’s New for Fall Fashion 2015 and How Can I Update My Jeans?

Fall fashion 2015: Denim is always in, but the way denim is cut always changes. Flared, skinny, boot-cut—there’s tons of different types of jeans out there! I’ve noticed that cropped flared pants are in for the Fall 2015 season. How do you take an old pair of jeans and make them fresh for this season?
 
If you have an older pair of jeans, you can cut the bottom off and let them fray. This gives a modern edge to the pant.
 
Adding a cool trim or fun fabric on the pocket—or stitching a simple criss-cross pattern on the pant somewhere—gives you a great opportunity to display your own originality!
 
Fashion Week Brooklyn hosted their Fall 2015 activities in June, and their theme was “Denim Walk.” It’s always about the three basic fits: the skinny, the flair, and the boyfriend. Women are able to choose the style they like, and that fits their body type. Jeans today have a myriad of washes, like rinse, destroyed, patched. Gray is a big color for jeans this fall, and lighter washes, denim trench coats, and denim suiting are also in fashion.
 
When it comes to the rest of fall fashion, young designers are taking more risks and pushing the boundaries on what is the “Now Trends” of today. I’ve seen the runways full of the “Madcap Aristocrat” with heavy layering of old and new fabrics mixed together; I’ve also seen the edgy, retro glam/“Rebel Yell” look and feel.
Readers and fashionable spirits, I’d like to see how you refurbished your jeans to make them stylish again for fall fashion—tweet your updated jeans wear photos at @kym_gold!

Fashion Imitates Life

There’s the saying that fashion imitates life, but I don’t just live fashion—I create it, breathe it, and surround myself with it.

My adventures in the Los Angeles-area fashion industry have had their ups and downs, but overall my time working with clothing and accessories has been an extraordinary journey. I have had the satisfaction of seeing my small business venture become a billion-dollar luxury jeans wear company; but I have also dealt with the struggle of being the only woman in a male-dominated board room meeting, fighting to have her creative opinions heard.

After 30 years in the fashion industry, I am now mentoring and working with new and up-and-coming designers to achieve their own success in a field that can be extremely difficult to find your voice. But I also want to inspire people like you, who may have an aspiration in starting your own company, whether it be fashion or a coffee shop or a tech start-up.

So I introduce to you my blog, right here at kymgold.com, where you will find motivational advice, current events, DIY projects, information about my new book, Gold Standard, and maybe even a throwback photo or two. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing some creative and inspiring moments.
