The culottes trend was strong this spring and summer, but there’s no reason why you should put your short pants away for the winter. You can continue wearing them once the chill arrives by pairing them with some knee-high boots that you likely already have in your closet. But if you don’t, here are some specimens that will pair perfectly with you gauchos. The right boot for the job should reach just to the knee with a chunky heel for a decidedly ’70s vibe. Suede or other interesting textures are encouraged, as is color!
1. Giambattista Valli, $697
2. Derek Lam 10 Crosby, $595
3. Siegerson Morrison, $695
4. Michael Kors, $207
5. Splendid, $207
6. Tory Burch, $487
A quick scan of Kate Ogata’s blog The Fancy Pants Report will tell you that she’s a pretty huge denim fan. She’s wearing jeans (different ones!) in nearly every outfit post—and looking incredibly stylish while she’s at it. In this recent shot she’s wearing a pair of skinnies by Paige denim. Skinnies may be on their way out, ut clearly this is a woman who doesn’t follow trends, and who knows what suits her! Also, I need that hat.
They were all over the fashion week streets from New York City to Paris: those frayed jeans from 3×1. Well, the street style mavens looked so good in them that they sold out fast. But Refinery 29 tells us they’ll be back in stock this month. Get on the waiting list by clicking the link above, or mark your calendar for December 15, when the brand says they’ll be restocked.
Can’t wait? Try out this DIY tutorial from Honestly WTF! Or, shop some alternatives here.

I introduced you to denim maven Ulrich Conrad Simpson a few months ago when we talked about his line of jeans for big dudes called UBI-IND. At the time I hadn’t met him in person, but I could tell I would like him. I finally had the pleasure of confirming my suspicions about a week ago. I popped into his beautiful shop in San Francisco’s Mission district to say hi and check out his denim in person—he also carries a highly covetable selection of vintage denim, home goods and more. I went home with a vintage denim jacket because I really needed another denim jacket! OK that’s false, but it reminded me of a priceless jeans and vest outfit I had in 3rd grade (more on that soon).

But it’s not! At the recent Kingpins denim-sourcing conference in Amsterdam, Adriano Goldschmied (Diesel, AG, Goldsign, Citizens of Humanity) announced his latest venture: a new brand called Acynetic that he created when he became alarmed one day while accompanying a friend picking up his daughter at school. All the moms were wearing workout leggings. Ten years ago they were all wearing jeans.
His response is a line of clothing that looks like denim, but is made of sport fabric. Asyndetic is taking athleisure to another level with knitted separates and outerwear made with indigo yarn combined with a spandex product made with circular knitting machines—which means no seams and more comfort. Here are a few sneak peeks. The debut collection is slated for a spring 2016 release. I have to say I thought this sounded terrible when I first started reading about it. Then I saw the photos and go really excited! I cannot wait to wear those flared pants to my dance class—not to mention as a work-from-home option that’s not sweatpants.

Camille Seydoux, the stylist who masterminds red carpet looks for her little sister Léa (who also happens to be a Bond girl in the latest iteration of the franchise) is teaming up with legendary shoe designer Roger Vivier for a line of denim bags and shoes.
Roger Vivier shoes are typically associated with a bit of an older set, heavy on stiletto styles featuring large, fancy buckles. But the collab aims to attract a younger set. Seydoux reimagined the Prismick line for her capsule collection, and tells WWD she approached the challenge by “attentively exploring my own Prismick bag, which is in a melting fade of black and grey.”
The capsule will include platform sandals, ankle boots, sneakers, plus a shoulder bag, a bucket bag, and a backpack. The pieces will be available in February. You can get a little peep of what the shoulder bag will look like in the photo above from Instagram. Can’t wait to see the rest!

M.I.H. Jeans recently sent me an email touting their latest “modern nautical” pieces, and suddenly this was an aesthetic I
wanted needed in my life. It’s laid back and evokes a ’70s vibe without being too hippie, and turtlenecks are just the thing right now when it’s getting chilly. Plus it incorporates the cropped, flare jeans look that was all over the street style galleries in September. Lot’s of wins happening here!

So I don’t do a ton of outfit posts here on ESD. But when you have some decent photos of yourself in a vintage denim ’70s deadstock jumpsuit and you have a blog called Eat Sleep Denim, an OOTD post seems like the thing to do.
So, here you have it, me in said one-piece in a photo (above) taken by Kelly Fooey who is not only very talented behind the camera, but also has an excellent name. Kelly was shooting a feature on ThredUP, where they featured me in the kickoff to an ongoing feature called BADASSMOMS.
The other photos were taken by my husband, Kourosh Karimkhany. The jumpsuit label says Wild Oats, and you can still find a few of them for sale online! I procured mine from Wildflower on Valencia Street in San Francisco—which is an amazing vintage shop for denim and tons more.
But don’t worry, if you have no luck in the vintage department, there are plenty of new denim jumpsuits out there are the moment!

Trends can be confusing, especially when it comes to jeans, and especially now. Skinnies ruled for so long that most of us though denim trends were something we didn’t need to reserve space in our brains for anymore. But then the trends came back to life with a vengeance. There are the high-waisted flares, the cropped, high-waisted flares, the frayed hems, the released hems, jumpsuits, bell bottoms, and many, many more.
When many styles are “in” at the same time, it can be liberating, but it can also be paralyzing. Are we doing it right? Does this high-water situation really look OK? If you’re asking yourself these questions and more, Mashable has answers.
The Ultimate Denim Dictionary is quite exhaustive, and indeed it is quite exhausting to consider the plethora of silhouettes discussed therein. Which one are you sporting this fall?
