What’s the best color to buy them in? What kind of shoes do they look good with? Plenty of celebs have taken them on as a wardrobe staple, like Kendall Jenner, who was snapped recently in her Rag & Bone tuxedo jeans.

When you think hot fall accessory, you probably don’t immediately think “gotta get one of those fresh paper bags and put it on my head!” But that’s the concept Ziggy Denim had for their fall 2012 lookbook… and we’re very amused. Other “accessories” included body paint, firefighter hats, and blow-up guitars. Ziggy Denim takes pride in creating the comfiest jeans around, from cords to chinos, and they sell their styles for under $100.

If you recall, Denim Therapy covered Joe’s Jeans’ Spring Lookbook, and now their Summer Lookbook featuring jeans for women and men are out. Instead of pastels, expect to see more color variations in the collection, such as deeper earthen tones, large floral, bleached out and rocker-chic printed jeans. We’re already a bit obsessed with their ikat printed jeans for women, even as the men’s jeans remain relatively tame by comparison. However, a stand out is a brown jean that will insert itself into the male consciousness soon enough. Check out the gallery to view some of our favorite picks.

Clothing lines don’t normal anchor their spring/summer collections in dark, dystopian palettes–black navy and indigo are oft-chucked for brighter, sunnier hues–but Diesel Black Gold has flipped the norm for its 2013 collection. The results? Even if the styling isn’t conducive to NYC humidity (um, have you felt it lately?), we’re loving their use of graphic stripes and small but intense flashes of color amongst rich suedes and leathers. It’s purely steampunky and futuristic. In fact, the results look drop dead sexy–just take extra care not to drop dead in 100-degree weather.

We’ve been pondering the delights of swimwear lately. If the heat doesn’t get to you, we don’t know what will! Just try to avoid seeing all the cute sets in all the magazines. One of our favorites at the minute has to be the new swimwear and beachwear range from Debenhams.com. Many styles which go swimmingly (pun intended) with jeans! During our research, we came across some pretty useful tips, so thought we’d share!
If you’re big up top, look for swimsuits with built in support for the chest but also with some eye-catching detail around the waist, such as ruching or a design, to draw attention away from your chest, Oprah recommends. If you are small-chested, pick styles that have padding in the bra section. Alternatively, emphasise your assets with eye-catching colors and prints. Small prints are best as they make an area look bigger. On a practical note, if you are planning on going for a swim, a heavily-padded suit may not be the best choice—it’ll take ages to dry!
If your lower half is biggest, Glamour advises that you go for swimsuits and bikinis with high-leg cuts rather than boy shorts. We can see from their pictures that higher-cut options make legs look longer and the hip and derriere area look smaller. If you’re really not about putting your body on display, strapless dresses look the part while you’re lying on the beach. And, don’t forget all the fun sandals out right now: chunky straps for daytime; leg-lengthening neutral tones for the evening. We feel armed to make our swimwear choices now, and we hope you feel the same!
