When it comes denim, I usually aim to stick with the classics. I steer clear of the crazy denim trends (read: you will not see me wearing neon jeans any time soon) and instead stick with the styles (cropped, always) that work best for me. With that said, I’m all about keeping my denim fresh and trying out new things. This season, rather than introduce something completely new, I’m relying on the little details to update my denim selection. My Nanushka jeans are the perfect example. The cut is one I know well: high-waisted (very) and cropped at the ankle. It’s the little details – the tie at the waist (love this touch!), the embellished pocket – that give this classic, straight-leg jean its fresh spin. Other new additions to my denim drawer include this pair of off-white jeans (the “Benny” cut is my favorite!) from Khaite along with this pair of Levi’s. The latter is a significant score not only because they were under $50 (!), but because it’s the first pair of Levi’s that has actually worked for me. Win-win!
The denim detail I’m not interested in this season? Distressing. A little distressing is okay, but most designers are taking it too far and turning out jeans that look like they just went threw a paper shredder. Nixing all of those. Agree or disagree?
