Denim Style: Cheetah Is The New Black

In this crazy, I-feel-like-I-know-you-but-I’ve-never-met-you world we call the blog-o-sphere, there are many stylish women whose personal style, editorial flair and sunglasses collection I admire. Alicia, of Cheetah Is The New Black, is one such blogger. Her style is right in the sweet spot between achievable and aspirational, which adds up to totally inspirational. I finally had the pleasure of meeting Alicia during fashion week, and not only did she look totally chic, but she was so kind and funny and cool, I fell a little bit in love. It’s always nice when the reality exceeds the internet.

What’s your denim philosophy?

I choose my denim based on comfort and fit. I am short so I typically hem all of my jeans but I choose styles that flatter by body best and then have the length hemmed if need be.

What do you wear with denim?

Everything (tees, silk blouses, leather jackets)! I’m totally a denim girl and could wear jeans, specifically boyfriend jeans every day!

What are your favorite brands?

I love Current/Elliot, J Brand and 7 for All Mankind.

Tell us about the jeans you wear most often?

I wear my Current/Elliot boyfriend jeans way too often to admit. They are perfectly distressed and comfortable and more acceptable than running around in my pjs!

What is on your denim wish list?

Current / Elliot is my absolute favorite denim brand because they fit me the best. I’d love a pair in every color and I’m currently craving a distressed bell bottom pair!
