As the ice melts away and we greet spring (with huge, huge smiles, obviously), we’re all facing our closets with similar questions. It’s no easy task dressing for the in-between seasons, when it’s not warm enough to go bare legs, but not cold enough to wrap up in layers. Here’s one tip on pairing your favorites from both season into one great look, care of style blog Swellmayde, featured below.
This look includes a great medium wash denim jacket draped over a black floral dress (the color of the dress, or lack there of, makes it perfect for early spring), with a black leather bag and booties. Both of the accessories have a nice touch of metallic hardware, making this the ideal ensemble for between seasons. See more photos here.

It’s finally March, and while the cold season is still churning out nearly intolerable days, you may have begun to wonder how to transition your denim into spring. One of our favorite bloggers, Sincerely Jules, illustrates the perfect way to bring your layered wintered look into spring with a pair of white destroyed denim skinny jeans and a blush-hued sweatshirt. She ties her chambray shirt around her waist and tops the whole thing off with epic jeweled earrings. We’re in love!
The break down?
Trade in darker denim hues for whites and pastels.
Mix rosy hues with light colored outerwear.
Tie previously worn layers, like a chambray shirt, around your waist.
Keep it sweet by mixing destroyed denim with epic earrings.

When it comes to caring for jeans, advice is almost as varied as that of caring for a newborn baby. Every information source seems to have their own ideas about taking care of something this precious. A recent article on Refinery29 suggests washing your jeans after every wear. We could hear denim heads across the globe shrieking and clinging to their precious unwashed raw selvedge. At Denim Therapy, we suggest only laundering your jeans (properly—which means not always in a washing machine) when needed. See below for our tips on cleaning denim…
Non-raw & blended denim:
Wash your jeans as little as possible. You only need to wash them if an odor or stain develops (and remember, stains can be spot-treated). When you do wash them, do so individually in a cold wash to prevent bleeding & shrinking and use a gentle detergent like Woolite. Always air dry your jeans.
Follow the same process as above if you’re going to wash them traditionally. You can also experiment with spot treatment, leaving them in the freezer to remove odor, and baking them in the oven (for the brave, only!) to remove bacteria.
Preventing color running:
To prevent dye transfer during washing, wash them once inside-out in hot water to run the “loose” dye, and then wash them again using half a cup of vinegar to set the color. Some dye may still run after this, depending on the jeans, so follow the instructions on the label of your jeans to avoid a dramatic change in appearance after washing.
Learn more about Denim Therapy’s expert repair services and send us your jeans for alteration, hole fixing, or hardware replacement. We do it all, so your favorite jeans never have to expire.
