Maybe its the whole Easter thing but I just cannot have enough pastel colored pants lately. This obviously isn’t anything new considering color denim has been trending for a couple of years now. Not being a fan of color much, I am proud of myself.
Zipper denim seems to be a must have this season. Lucky for me, I wear them all the time. With the amount of jeans I own, zippers add sass to the mix. My favorite pair of denim I ever owned was a pair of Habitual jeans that I had purchased at a small boutique in Malibu, California. I wore them for five years and then it was time to set them free to the jean heaven gods. Designers Paige and J Brand are at the top of this denim trend and quite frankly, so am I.
For Fashion’s Night Out, premium denim store Paige had all the employees wearing and marketing her famous new ‘Edgemont’ Skinny Jean from their Fall campaign lookbook.
My recent purchase has been a pair of J Brand skinny jeans with more than enough zippers to have me fail a metal detector screening.
I splurged on my red jeans remember? Alright well I will not do it again on color denim. Plus, red denim is timeless. At American Eagle I found the cutest pair of rocking blue skinny jeans. For 44.50, I would buy three pairs if I needed any other color. They also come in red! Cute, affordable, and just plain fun. I wore them with a plain white scoop long sleeve t-shirt, a brown belt, and jelly sandals. They would be cute with slouchy brown boots and a camel cardigan as well. Cheers.
I bought my first pair of Diesel jeans in the 9th grade–I was so ecstatic! I would wear them everyday to school as they replaced my Miss Sixty denim. Naturally, I am obsessed with denim–therefore, this little piece of news was very interesting to me. Diesel has now made a waterproof nylon version of their classic cut off shorts ! The same fit and everything! My cut offs do not come off of me when I am at the pool or near the beach. Now literally, they will not come off of me haha. For $15.00, I think they are pretty hot to pair with a bikini top.
Finally the search is over! Thank you but no thank you ZARA for always being out of my size in your $60.00 jeans…I now had to splurge and buy me the perfect red jeans from Citizens of Humanity at $158.00. Ah whatever, I collect jeans (is that good enough justification? hehe). These jeans sit higher on the waist and feel amazing. The color is not a bright red either so it can be worn quite frequently. YA! I like to wear them with casual chuck taylor’s or a fun nude heel for a night out.
Note: When wearing colored denim, keep in mind to keep everything else neutral so nothing clashes or takes away from your cool pants!
Not only does Georgia May Jagger (the daughter of Mick Jagger) model for the jean company, she is now designing for them too. I have become more and more intrigued by Georgia this past month. Her look is so unique and her style is so effortless. Did I mention her perfect figure? oh yes. She designed a Spring/Summer line appropriately called Hudson by Georgia May Jagger and it rocks. The line meets a mix of edgy rock n roll and a twist on the 80s. Think lace up, zippers, high waist, and body hugging pieces. The collection is a tad bit pricey, but a sexy pair of jeans are worth it in my book. If the jeans do not tickle your fancy, the campaign alone is worth checking out. The video features behind the scene action.
I remember working at Nordstrom circa 2007 and AG got dropped from the company! Why you ask? Well…they had “mom jean” written all over them! Lots has changed, and AG is rockin now!!! The styles, fits, washes etc…are all new and improved with quality. I just bought my 3rd pair from Pickett Fences in Larchmont Village called “the ballad” which is a slim boot cut that I adore! I own jeggings and boyfriend jeans as well. They also work in a very eco-friendly manner which is a plus.
I recently discovered this new jean brand called DL1961 and I must say…I love it! I probably own over 40 pairs of jeans, and this brand is really amazing. The whole philosophy of the company is that their jeans will not stretch out once you wear them a couple of times. They are made to not sag, bag, or stretch out! How ever they fit when you buy them, is how they will fit always! The denim company improved the whole 4 way stretch idea and it works! As far the styles go, the denim aesthetic is very simple and plain with solid washes and plain pockets. You can find them at Shopbop, Nordstrom, Bloomies, and a couple of other specialty boutiques. The average jean costs around $158.00.

Although sparkle and glam is well-respected and sometimes much-needed, keeping it basic is foolproof. Fashion has been very eccentric these past few seasons with furs,sequins,rhinestones, and a lot of stud action. Personally, I live by the “less is more” motto and it has not failed me yet. Effortless style is so beautiful and no trend can surpass it.
