…of course one of the afformentioned elements is a killer pair of cut-off shorts. We spotted this lovely lady on the Facehunter‘s blog and decided to whip up a little how-to for those who want to acquire this vacation-esque look. Start with a pair of cut-off shorts that really fit you well. We love this super-dark wash (almost a faded black or navy). Pair with a neutral colored button-up top (extra points for a v-neck). Sleeves can be cuffed or feature a cute mini-blousson detail as seen below. Finish off the look with a bright white scarf—this is the point of the look! That shot of white will give you a just-got-off-the-beach vibe that may even rub off on your mood (even on a Monday).

It happens every once in a while. We see a deep blue garment, tailored and seamed with hardware and a crisp fit, and we want so badly for it to be denim. Sometimes it is, sometimes it ain’t. But this time, we had to blog it anyway. The Queen of the Caribbean strapless dress is a playful, sexy option for summer nightlife outings that your friends won’t soon forget. The careening zipper seams and tiered contours will lend a powerful edge to your figure. Top it off with a crocheted shawl some blinding white sandals, or a floppy hat and sheer cardigan. It may be latex and poylester, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend! You can score this beauty for $106 at Tobi.

If the Armani Jeans Fall/Winter 2011-12 catalogue is any indicator to what the upcoming season is going to be like, then don’t worry about the cold weather—it is still going to be a hot one! Julie Saner shows how great denim can make you look (topless or not!), as well as all the other options they have of knits, outerwear, tees, and blouses. The catalogue displays an aura of sophistication that is perfect for the workplace, a day out in the city, or the hustle of an ivy-league campus. Armani Jeans makes sure you have plenty of options to match with your favorite denim piece—we’re dying to get our hands on thatdenim skirt and fur/leather jacket combo ourselves!

White skinny jeans are an obvious choice once the weather heats up (if you’re going to wear long jeans at all), and Reese Witherspoon showed her love for them two days in a row recently. She was snapped at the Vanessa Bruno boutique on the first occasion and the following day spotted at Whole foods, wearing the exact same Genetic Denim “The James” Zipper Cigarette skinny jean in pale wash. Refreshing to see that a high-paid hollywood starlet can keep it real and wear something two days in a row—and a gorgeous outfit, at that!

Were you at the BLK DNM grand opening early last month? For those of us who weren’t, here is behind-the-scenes footage, shot by Marius Crowne, of the store opening, from set-up to flowing vodka. Keep your eyes peeled, because Johan Lindeberg is seen in several shots chatting up his guests.
While you’re there, the ladies might want to check out Jeans 6 for women, which is a high rise jean, and Jeans 15 for men, which is a slight drop-crotch for men, with fuller thigh openings which narrow at the ankle. Hurry: this is reportedly a temporary store, which might be open for another week or two more. BLK DNM’s New York City store is located at 237 Lafayette Street, New York City. For more information, go to BLK DNM online.

On day 2 of our PROJECT Global Trade Show coverage we got to chat with Helen Soulmiotis, senior account executive of Raven Denim. Loved by many-a-celebrity (the aptly named bootylicious Megan Fox short is a clear indiction of how much she loves the brand), the LA-based Raven is definitely one to watch. As a complement to their already popular women’s line, the brand is launching a men’s line. We absolutely fell in love with the Max trouser (most popular piece in their men’s line), which adds a relaxed twist to the classic trouser. All of the denim is imported from Italy and Japan and comes in washes that compliment any wardrobe. From high waisted that don’t make you look like a mom, to indigo rinsed trousers that elongate the leg, Raven denim is definitely something we’re raving about (yes, pun intended).
