Flare Jeans, Street Style


One of the leading denim trends right now is the ’70s style flare leg jeans, but is anybody really wearing it off the pages of a magazine?  Who What Wear has documented a few stylish ladies from the Stockholm streets to New York City.  Note from WWW: do not go all-out and take the ’70s vibe literally.  You can look elegant and on-trend by pairing your fluid wide leg jeans with a structured blazer or a body skimming top to off-set the looseness of the jean.

To read about suggested wide leg jeans (including the high-waisted variety!) and what else to wear with your flared jeans, go to Who What Wear online.

RARE Spring 2011 Lookbook


With a constant inundation of big & bad brands hitting us face first via inbox/RSS feed every day, we can’t like everything. But it’s true that even lines of questionable cool-caliber have something to offer. Some hidden gem. For Italian brand Rare, it’s the denim overalls in their Spring 2011 lookbook. They’re well-proportioned, perfectly creased, grunge-inspired, and ready to rock. The rest of the lookbook feels like it’s chocked with too many overlapping design details and (gulp…faux-necklace floral detail over a denim workshirt), but for this awesome one-piece release, we’ll  forgive them this season.

Moda Operandi- An Exclusive Q&A: Lauren santo Domingo


If you need the latest in fashion and can’t wait until it hits the stores, you’re in luck. Moda Operandi has arrived. The brainchild of Aslaug Magnusdottir and Lauren Santo Domingo, Moda Operandi is the first online luxury fashion retailer to allow members to pre-order tomorrow’s styles today through a flash trunkshow. We had the opportunity to speak with Co-Founder and style authority, Lauren Santo Domingo (a Vogue Contributing editor to say the least of her fashion expertise), to discuss her new business venture and gain you exclusive membership access to Moda Operandi!

moda-operandi_aslaug-lauren

Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning. What inspired you to get this Website off the ground? How exactly does it work?

Lauren Santo Domingo: The website has been a long time coming. We have been working on it for over a year and a half and launched during New York fashion week. My business partner and I had long wanted to go into business together but the world did not need another personal style or street style blog. Moda Operandi offers access to designer showrooms and allows members to shop like an editor; A privilege that I am lucky to have had.

DT: Tell us some designers that you carry and about the denim they offer?

LSD: We are gearing up for London fashion week right now… We have a great group of Brits like Erdem, Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab. These collections showed to great reviews and hey are sometimes hard to come by. So our flash trunk shows are quite possibly the only place to secure these looks.

DT: What are some of your favorite denim brands? And where do you shop for them?

LSD: I love Stella McCartney for high waisted and Balenciaga for skinny jeans. Derek Lam did a fabulous high waisted jean for Spring, hat I am lusting after right now.

Gridlock Denim: Pick Their Pockets


Remember when we wrote about Designer Jeans with embroidered pockets?  What if we could change the look of our jeans without having to buy a whole new pair?  Gridlock Denim founded their jeans on the idea of interchangeable back pocket overlays that can be swapped out when the mood strikes.  With just a one-two zip et voil?: instant denim therapy!  Feeling a little Boho chic?  Want to get rough and military?  Or, you just want to un-bling your jeans?  Yes, Gridlock’s got a pocket for that.  The jeans are sourced from high quality denim from ORTA, a Turkish manufacturer, and cut, sewn and made in Los Angeles.

Denim Looks From Mike Gonzalez Spring 2011


We couldn’t be more thrilled to present three incredible denim-infused looks from the Mike Gonzalez spring 2011 collection (which is, in short, a bohemian dream). The line is characteristic in its well-played head wraps, organic bangles, cut-outs, and ethnic prints, but the star of this show is all-blue, baby! We’re beyond obsessed with this round up of braid-rope belted denim jumper, versatile cropped drawstring pants, and stylized denim jacket. This is one example of boho-denim that needn’t even graze the surface of western. If you thought the West was wild, scroll down and think again.

Stripes & White Cut-Offs: An Easy Summer Outfit


Australian designer/blogger Jody Phan from Don’t Dance Naked shows off her easy-to-execute summer outfit: a pair of ultra-light wash denim cut-off shorts and a cropped top in black and white thick stripes. Her accessories include a bangin’ gold watch, red baseball cap, and clean white sneakers. We love her cool-casual approach to street wear, and you can rock it too! Show less skin by layering a one piece leotard beneath the top, or add a roomy knit cardigan. Add modesty to the shorts by layering a pair of lace biker shorts, or rock the whole thing as is (as soon as the weather warms up)!

Magdalena Frackowiak In Summer-Ready Denim Looks For Reserved S/S 2011


The always stunning Magdalena Frackowiak headlines the latest campaign for Reserved spring summer 2011. The Polish beauty sports some pretty sexy denim looks from denim short shorts (a must-have for the season), relaxed light-washed denim work shirts, and denim jackets. We are really loving the summer-ready feel with all the swimwear separates thrown into the mix. We’re not going to deny that we absolutely adore the slight bohemian feel (as you probably know by now, we’ve been on a boho fix lately) added by all the great accessories from the braided belts, ditsy floral scarves and exaggerated sun hats. All we have to say is that with campaigns like this tantalizing us summer can’t come soon enough!
