Earnest Sewn and Peter Som: The New Wave Of Floral Jeans


An exciting new development in floral printed jeans, Earnest Sewn is collaborating with designer Peter Som to bring you a new spectrum of dreamy pastel jeans in a variety of floral motifs. The jeans, entitled Floral Fusion, walked the runway during NYFW spring 2013, which means two things: A) you’ll have to wait for next spring. B) you have something to look forward to all winter! The styles include cropped, wide leg, and skinny.

More on the line, via Denim Blog:

The line blossomed from Peter Som’s poppy runway prints and incorporated Earnest Sewn’s renowned denim techniques such as pigment coating and laser-dye processes. Earnest Sewn’s Creative Director, Ben Talley Smith said, “the collaboration has pushed our team to work with silhouettes outside of the traditional five pocket realm that we know and love, so that in itself has been exciting for us.”

Designer, Peter Som noted that he’s “thrilled to partner with The Earnest Sewn Co. The fusion of my runway prints with their expertise in denim has resulted in a very exciting collaboration. As someone who wears Earnest Sewn jeans regularly, the collaboration is a natural fit.”

Make Your Jeans Your Own: Styling, Distressing, Cuffing & More


The thing that sets the most stylish people apart from the rest is not that they have access to some exclusive, unique source of clothing no one else does. It’s that they take the same products everyone else buys and they make it their own. With jeans, this is especially versatile, from distressing to cuffing and beyond.

Below are a few ways you can make your jeans your own this fall.

1. DIY distress your jeans. Grab a pair of scissors, some sand paper, and go to town on your favorite jeans to create a look that’s vintage and chic. Check out our post on distressing denim for more ideas.

2. Mix and match denim with your favorite statement accessories, like killer shoes or a bold metallic clutch. Hint: Done correctly, this makes a pair of jeans acceptable in the night life realm.

3. Cuff them up. Whether you prefer a wide thick cuff or a skinny rolled cuff, when you adjust hemlines, the game changes. The a-symmetrical cuffing job above is a tomboyish statement we love (especially when worn with heels). Check out our video on three ways to cuff jeans, below.

Need your jeans dyed, tailored, or cut into the perfect pair of cut-off shorts? (We wear ours all year ’round with a pair of tights!) Send them in to Denim Therapy and we’ll work magic with out expert repair and customization services.

Trend Alert! Monochromatic Denim Styling


Don’t get us wrong, color blocking and high contrast are both excellent ways to make an outfit pop—but sometimes going the understated route can make the biggest impact. Monochromatic styling requires a bit of bravery (done incorrectly, it could get costume-y), as well as like-hued items to mix and match. If you’re into this look, check our tips below on pulling it off with your favorite jeans this fall—and check out Nasty Gal’s newest lookbook for more ideas.

Acid Trip Skinny JeansBonitas Cutoff Shorts

1. Colored jeans are a shoe-in for this style! After all, you’re more likely to find a top to go with your over-dyed lilac denim than your destroyed dark wash skinnies.

2. Mix textures and variations on your chosen color to keep from looking like a children’s book character. A solid top with acid wash jeans or a printed top with smooth, non-distressed flares will keep you looking chic.

3. Stick with neutral hues to start if you’re unsure: a heather grey is a perfect launch point!

Want the jeans above? You can have them! You’re welcome.

How To Dress Up Jeans With Peplum Style For Fall And Winter


You think the peplum trend is going away?  Think again. It Girl Hanneli Mustaparta shows us how to get the look for fall and winter with a few key wardrobe essentials for keeping those flirty ruffles in your street style repertoire.  Keep The Beat, Mango‘s style blog, says: “The secret with peplum is to combine it with a skinny trouser, denim or otherwise. The added touch of the gloves gives the look a more feminine edge, while a good heeled shoe streamlines the figure. And we must not overlook the oversized bag either, ideal for carrying all your things.”
