Denim Trends 2014: Cool distressed details are still hot this year, but there are a few finer points that are making a presence in 2014.

Anything with straps: This includes overalls (long and short), plus overall skirts, and suspender shorts. This super-cute style will set you apart from the masses of shorty-shorts sure to be on every block this summer.

Light Wash: Nothing says summer sun like the bleached-out look of light wash denim, but don’t be afraid to rock this look well into fall and winter!

Super Seventies: Get your fix of 1976-inspired denim with bell-bottoms, but it doesn’t stop there. Combine trends by layering a cute retro crop top under those overalls, or reaching for those light-wash flares.

CelebrityEmma Watson Takes the Cover of Elle

Emma Watson has long been a favorite actress of ours and we’ve loved watching her grow from playing a spunky young Hermione, to her most recent role as Ila in the blockbuster Noah. As the cover girl for the April issue of Elle, Watson talks about her journey in the acting world while showing off in a stunning shoot with photographer Carter Smith. She dons denim on denim for the cover, and her looks inside the mag are casual, quirky, and totally fun. While Watson admits that she’s “so jealous” of actresses who were able to mature into adulthood before hitting it big, we think her ability to grow gracefully in the public eye is one of the reasons this star shines so bright!Watson1Emma WatsonWatson3
