This Skinny Jean Update is Subtle but NOT Generic

While cropped and cuffed styles are taking off in the boyfriend jean category, this super skinny cropped version by Need Supply with it's calf high hem makes the ankle look positively scandalous. For the past year, I've been calling the skinny jean generic, as in it's a blank canvas for any outfit, but maybe I spoke to soon.

This Zara Denim Jumper is a Spring Must-Have




Are you reluctant to try the denim jumper? Do you think it's too much of a knockaround item for your tastes? I can relate. I bought a jumper earlier this year and am still somewhat ho-hum about it. But this Zara jumper has me ready to give this trend a chance again. 

The dark indigo color and the clean silhouette are perfect for dress down Fridays and, now that I think about it, a cowl neck chunky knit sweater over (or under) would make it presentable throughout the week as well, for more casual offices. 

What do you think? Yay or nay on this Zara jumper

This Jacket Has Hits ALL the Spring Trends

Aries distressed denim jacket 396 matches fashion
Aries Denim Jacket - $396 available at MatchesFashion.com


This denim jacket from Aries is such a find and may signal the beginning of the classic denim jacket evolving from a wardrobe staple to a full-fledged sartorial statement. The chopped off wrists, neck and torso are definitely conversation starters, but the roomy shape and faded wash are not so out there that you can't incorporate it into your wardrobe. The idea is very similar to the chopped off hems on skinny jeans that was popular this year in showrooms and seen on some popular bloggers like The Blonde Salad. Look for both items to be a popular trend this Spring.

The "it" Denim Skirt by Frame Denim




Frame Denim's denim pencil skirt is a must-have you needed in your closet like yesterday. Rihanna, Beyonce and Kim K have all worn it and although their personal styles differ dramatically, they each paired it with a similarly colored denim shirt and nude heels.

You've got the shirt, you've got heels, now all you need is the skirt. So, what are you waiting for?

Paige Denim's Metallic Knee Jeans


I'm pretty certain that this Paige Denim jean is going to be your new favorite jean. If not then at least your new favorite look, because it is definitely mine. 

The neat wash with the metallic knee, in a glorious blue no less, is a riff off of this summer's destroyed look where a big chunk of the knee was cut out in a square and frayed like this or it could just be a kneepatch and I'm overthinking it. Either way, it's a great look and sure to inspire DIYers and other brands to follow suit.

J.Crew and 3x1 Collection

Jenna Lyons, the best thing to happen to J. Crew since J. Crew, announced last month that there would be several collaborations included in the brand's lineup this season -one of which is a partnership with renown denim atelier 3x1. 
Although I've been aware of the collaboration since the announcement, lately I'm finding it's always best to wait until the launch to ensure that my opinion is not influenced by all the excitement. So I waited. And waited. And waited...for nothing, because after browsing it online, it's clear the J.Crew 3x1 collection is everything we would expect from the two brands. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have known better.  
The women's only range comes in three styles with each having a high-rise waist and either a cropped or ankle-skimming hem which for some reason is not the norm for skinny jeans but definitely should be. The prices are in the premium range, but J.Crew encourages it's shoppers to donate old jeans to the "Blue Jeans Go Green" initiative for a $20 credit. 
Happy Shopping!

Line and Dot Fringe





Texture is a unique and underrated way to add interest to an outfit, especially when wearing solid colors. That's why I am all about the line and dot fringe details on this jean jacket and denim dress from Pixie Market.

Fringe is a great way to do stripes and since stripes flooded the NY Fashion Week runways, it's a safe bet that designers are going to be more creative when it comes to vertical lines.

With that said, my preference is the jacket. Box shaped jackets are great for changeable looks and the circular fringe pattern on the Joplin Jacket adds chaos to an otherwised structured shape.

Asos Mom Jean Shorts. Yes Please!

I know, summer's almost over. The keyword here is almost because we still have plenty of days of shorts and sandals weather left. 

Asos Mom Shorts at less than $60 are a great end of summer investment. Mark my words, mom jeans, or at least voluminous styles like slim boyfriends and jog jeans, are going to take over next year so you'll be able to wear these jeans for many, many summers.

Scroll down for alternate washes...

Blank NYC Denim Sweatpants? Yes, Please


Denim sweatpants. I didn't think I would ever see the day. And if I did see the day, I definitely didn't think I would like it. I mean, yeah, Diesel has the Jogg Jeans which are great, but the knit denim they use to make it is probably too cost-prohibitive for most brands to duplicate. But, lo and behold, Blank NYC has created a pair of denim sweats trumping all I believed you could do with denim. Not only that, they're way cheaper and 100% cotton no less. I am so all about these right now.
