These Jeans Have Us Seeing Spots!

I think it's time to inject a little bit of fun into our jeans, don't you? Seriously, when is the last time you put together an outfit just for the pure fun of it. I'm not talking sartorial fun. I'm talking, rainbows, butterflies and unicorns fun. Current/Elliott's polka dot creation is far from the colorful characters and patterns we wore in our childhoods, but it's just-short-of whimsy style is just the thing we need to help take ourselves just a little less seriously.

Denim on the Runway: Turnt Up Cuffs! #NYFW #Fall2015

 

Expect to see massive cuffing or 'turn ups' this fall. Of course there's nothing new about cuffing, but you can't deny there's something about seeing something repeated on the runway that validates it as a must-have. Especially when it's something as affordable and commonplace as jeans. This is even more pronounced when you see high fashion brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and Valentino Red offering their take on it in gothic distressed looks and throwback 50's vintage respectively. It doesn't take a genius (or a denim expert) to predict that we are going to see a lot more versions of this style in the future.

See how you can get a head start on this trend after the jump.

Denim on the Runway: Jumpers, Overalls and Boilersuits #NYFW #FW2015

Jumpers and overalls made several appearances at New York Fashion Week this season and are sure to be a popular item this fall. While several designers updated the look with suiting fabrics and more refined silhouettes, denim still reigned supreme as the go to option for this look. Decidedly less casual than past offerings, this season's version aimed for more classier shapes, but not so classy that you can't throw on a pair of sneakers. Gotta maintain those priorities. These looks won't hit stores till fall, but that doesn't mean you can't get a head start. 

Scroll down to shop some of the brands that have already made this a must-have item.

Bethnals Ltd is expanding beyond the little brand that could that launched it's campaign on Kickstarter las year, to a full on contender. There are two distinct trends emerging in denim. The first is roomy and destroyed, while the other is clean and tailored. Bethnals definitely is making it's mark on the latter with some of the most refined (yet casual) pieces I've seen in quite some time. 

A carryover from last season is an updated version of their Tommy Worker's jacket with this season's version boasting a longer length and grainier denim. This was one of my favorite pieces of all the lookbooks I reviewed last year and I'm stoked that they've decided to keep making it. 

See it and the rest of the collection after the jump...

Blind Style: She Outshines Them All!



This woman is an inspiration to women (and men) everywhere with a resume that few of us could attain. Surprisingly, her wardrobe is as carefully curated as her craft. Stocked with some of the most enviable pieces you can imagine, she puts together ensembles that are high fashion yet classy and elegant. This doesn't mean that our lady doesn't know how to relax in a pair of jeans. 

Our learned friend was recently spotted looking (not so) laid back in a pair of Citizens of Humanity faded black skinnies in a rare night on the town with her A-list hubby who's equally A-list friends were recently all outshone by this stunning humanitarian.

Can you guess who it is? This one is definitely a gimme.

The answer after the jump.

Selena Gomez is NOT Wearing Short Shorts for V Magazine. She's Wearing...

Selena Gomez is doing her best Lolita impression on the cover of V Magazine in the skimpiest of short shorts. But guess what? They're not shorts. They're actually the bottom half of a two piece swimsuit that is part of Guess' upcoming spring 2015 collection

Guess has had a denim bathing suit in their collection before, but I've always looked at it as a novelty item. Never in a million years did I ever think I'd see someone wearing one. But this is the age of anything goes and Selena went there.

What do you think? Did she nail it? Would you wear a denim or denim-inspired swimsuit?

Get The Look: Ciara Goes Machosexual

Talk about blurring gender lines! Ciara donned a men's double-breasted trench coat at the POLO Ralph Lauren presentation during NY Fashion Week in a look that screams normcore gone chic. Bypassing womenswear's take on menswear and going straight to the source is something I don't think we've ever really considered, but Ciara's amazing look truly gives us something to think about.

The singer paired it with head to toe Ralph Lauren mixing denim-on-denim with riding boots and aviators. This is a departure for Ciara who is usually flaunting her fabulous figure with skintight silhouettes and some skin somewhere. Surprisingly, the only thing nude was her flawless makeup. 

Scroll down to see how you can get the look as well as some more affordable options.

Take a Glimpse at Polo Ralph Lauren and Ralph Lauren Purple Label for Fall 2015

POLO Ralph Lauren's Fall 2015 collection is taking outdoorsy style to a whole new and chicer level. Among the women's collection are elements of both Nordic and Navajo in off the shoulder chunky knit sweaters and slouchy hats. Both looks were styled with their respective footwear such as clogs and boots with tassel so their's no mistaking the inspiration. So chic and so clever, yes? For the mens collection, the rugged outdoors is represented with exactness and both collections are rounded out with next-level blazers, tailored suiting and denim.

Ralph Lauren Purple Label mens is chock full of suedes and cords this season with a random pair of skinny sweats thrown in to show you they're not so uptight. 

Overall I'd say both collections are quite good.

See the rest after the jump...
