Six Pairs of Skinny Jeans for Furry Winter Boots

Sunday, December 18, 2016

Even though I live on the West Coast and don’t get to experience all that much snow, I’m all about a furry boot to tuck my jeans into this winter. I hope to make some trips to snowy places specifically for this reason. And, alas, you can’t tuck flared jeans into your boots—not comfortably anyway,  You need a second-skin skinny jeans. So once again when I thought I’d never wear skinnies again, I’m finding an occasion. I guess that’s why people are calling them a new classic—at this point they will never go out of style. Here are a few styles that I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection.skinny jeans

  1. Rag & Bone/JEAN high rise skinny, $185
  2. Hudson Barbara high-waisted skinny jeans, $215
  3. AG The Farrah skinny crop jeans, $178

Extreme Denim Proportions on the Resort 2017 Runways

Thursday, June 30, 2016

Ellery is known for playing with extreme proportions, and I love when Australian designer Kym Ellery brings those silhouettes to denim, which she did in the jeans above and the jacket below for her resort 2017 collection. They are both on-trend and would be lifers in my closet. I also need those shoes!

This duster from Tome’s 2017 resort collection is another sure lifer, and the story behind the collection is moving. I also love that designers Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo are dedicated to sustainability.

With Off-White’s resort 2017 collection, we’re entering JNCO territory! It was only a matter of time, I suppose, before this silhouette once again didn’t look entirely crazy (or does it?). Also is this a new way to wear a trench, or trench/denim jacket hybrid? Either way, I’m on board.

Valentino Resort 2017: Denim With Fancy Accoutrements

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

54-valentino-resort-17

Obsessed is one word that describes how I’m feeling about the denim in Valentino’s Resort 2017 collection. Adorned with beading and patches and styled with fur, lace and chiffon, co-head designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have created truly luxe denim pieces. As it happens, Chiuri is headed to Dior next month after co-designing at Valentino with Piccioli since 2008. Hopefully she’ll bring some of her denim magic along with her to Dior.

Veronique Branquinho Resort 2017: Dreamy Denim

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Screenshot 2016-06-28 16.43.10Sometimes it seems like there’s nothing new under the sun when it comes to denim dresses. I thought that myself until I began perusing the resort 2017 collections. Maybe because with resort the emphasis is often on travel and relaxation, denim tends to figure prominently. Belgian designer Veronique Branquinho’s denim is my favorite of the season—it’s not difficult to see why below. That maxi dress in particular is extra special.

Stay tuned, I found lots more denim for you peppered throughout the resort shows!

Sincerely Jules launched her own clothing line in 2012, and I’m loving the denim she’s been adding to her collection lately. I’m especially smitten with the Brooklyn skinny jeans below, and the prices are totally doable. Plus, I love seeing a blogger take her blog to another level with retail and totally kill it.

The Best of the Bangladesh Denim Expo

Saturday, April 30, 2016

bangladesh denim expo
Twice each year in the spring and fall, Bangladesh hosts denim brands, designers, buyers, and other members of the denim trade at the Bangladesh Denim Expo. It may seem like an unlikely venue for a denim trade show, but over the past decade or so, Bangladesh has become a respected supplier of denim and jeans across the globe.

The expo, which launched in 2014, features acres of booths where denim brands display their latest designs and innovations. The show also features talks and seminars on health, safety, sustainability and trends.

This year’s trade show just wrapped up, and since I couldn’t be there, I’ve been pouring over all the photos I can find from the event. Amy Leaverton, author of Denim Dudes had a prominent social media presence at the show, and photographer Sadia Rafique was on hand to document the event.

Check out some of the Bangladesh Expo highlights below!

Rachel Comey’s Ridiculously Cool Denim

Friday, April 22, 2016

Lately it seems that more often than not, when a denim garment turns my head, it’s by Rachel Comey. The high-waisted, wide-leg jeans, the frayed dresses and tops, and the drawstring skirt are all calling  my name. She can apparently do no wrong. See what I mean?

The Coolest Not-Jeans Denim So Far This Season

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

My denim fanaticism does not by any means end with jeans. I love a good denim top, dress, skirt, bag… give it to me in denim and I love it all the more. And I love seeing what brands come up with when they’re thinking outside the jean. Here are some of my favorite denim pieces so far this season. What are yours?

8 Pairs of not-too-Short Denim Shorts

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

The weather is getting warmer, and we’re firmly in the midst of music festival season, and that means lots of cut-off denim shorts. The type that more resemble a bathing suit that shorts seem to be quite popular at the moment, but for various reasons I prefer cutoff shorts that at the very least cover one’s derriere—preferably they also cover a good portion of the leg. I swear I’m not a prude. I suppose it’s just that super short shorts look so… uncomfortable!

So just in case you’re like me, here are eight very cute, not-too-short denim shorts to choose from. Happy shopping!

14 Amazing Album Covers Featuring Women in Denim

Disco Shock

It’s been a good while since our list of men on album covers in denim, so it’s high time we feature their women counterparts. They were fewer and further between than the men, which was a little surprising. I figured plenty of female rockers would go for jeans in their album cover shots—but the truth is there are fewer female rockers. But there’s plenty to appreciate here, check out in all their glory below!

But there are plenty of denim options to keep you feeling the holiday spirit straight through to New Year’s. Here are 16 pairs, all of which would be perfect to wear!

Denim at Milan Fashion Week: Let’s Juxtapose

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Comptoir-des-Cotonniers-15-1366

 

“Juxtaposition” was my favorite word in college. It pretty much summed up my approach to everything. Putting things that don’t normally go together and snuggle them up. That’s the denim vibe this year in Milan. When London skipped over the denim beat, Milan integrated denim in a very different way. From straight-up preppy of Comptoir des Cotonniers to the dystopian future of MM6 Maison Martin Margiela. Others juxtaposed right within the collection, like DSQUARED2 by placing Native American inspired with European posh. Au Jour Le Jour did something different by taking the 1960’s psychedelia and J-Crew bedazzled their denim (you know what I’m talking about, jeweled sweatshirts!) Anyway, it’s a fun mix this year, and can’t wait to see how it manifests in Fall.
