Denim Tips For Guys: How to Wear a Blazer with Jeans


A cool feature at JCrew.com is an advice page called Jack Knows Best, in which “Jack” dispenses menswear styling tips and act more or less like a fashion concierge (you can even email him!).  One of Jack’s latest tips are how you can wear a blazer with jeans:


“First, pick a clean, slim jean like our 484 in dark indigo or, now that it’s summer, a white jean. No rips, fading or whiskering—keep it simple. Then, go for a textured jacket because it’s a better match for the casual look of denim. Think seersucker or linen for warm months and herringbone or tweed for cooler ones. I think Andy Warhol always did the blazer and 501® jeans look really well—with a little bit of irony.”

Keep Cool, Cover Up With Denim Shorts & Sheer Blouses


As the temperature rises, so do the hemlines. And while the prospect of wearing short shorts and tank tops is welcome in the summertime humidity and heat, sometimes you want (or need!) to feel a bit more covered-up. The solution? Add a sheer, blouse-y top when wearing your favorite pair of denim shorts. Buy over-sized and tuck it in to tone down the volume. For a lot more coverage, it won’t add that much bulk or cause you to break out into heat palpitations. Win-win.

How to Style Hudson Jeans’ LouLou Cropped Skinny


When we first introduced Hudson Jeans‘ phosphorescent-striped LouLou jeans, we definitely pictured wearing the tuxedo striped cropped skinny jeans at nightclubs. But, we were pleasantly surprised to see all the different ways that fashion bloggers were able to incorporate these limited edition jeans into their every day wear à la street style (see below). Check out the different looks: from dressy to street casual. We even spotted a cleverly-styled version by one fella.  What spin would you take on these trendy jeans?

Whiskers Help Avoid Wider Looking Hips


Here’s a great tip from Donna Ida to take with you on your next denim shopping endeavor. Jeans with whiskers (especially of the subtle, natural-looking variety) can add some depth and dimension to your jeans’ crotch and hip area, and help you avoid looking wider and “blocky”. If you’re trying to look slimmer from the front, take this tip into consideration, and check out some great whiskered washes below.

3 Ways Denim Shirts Can Double As Jackets


Prepare to brave transitional weather by repurposing your denim shirts as denim jackets. For a longer, tunic-length denim shirt, just wear it like you would a jacket–slung open. Then throw your shirt over your shoulders for a casual look that’s great for dressing down a fancier going-out look. Or purposefully pick a smaller denim shirt (thrift stores are great for these), and wear as a cropped jacket with your summer dresses.

Wearing Neon Dresses For Spring? Add A Denim Jacket


Does the neon trend still feel too wild for your tastes? Tone down a neon dress (like Christopher Kane’s Barbara Lace Dress) with a denim jacket (like Topshop’s Tall Denim Western Jacket). We’re taking inspiration from style blogger Jenny Ong, who paired her neon yellow frock with a bleached denim motorcycle jacket.

Check out our inspiration below!

How To Ensure The Perfect Jean Hem Length


When you take in your jeans to get hemmed (for instance, via our Denim Therapy expert hemming service!) be sure to bring a pair of shoes with you to wear when getting measured. Before your jeans go under the knife you’ll want to make sure the shoes you measure with are the shoes you’re planning to pair with the jeans (or at the least, a similar heel/lack of heel). This will take the guess work out of figuring out the measurement you’ll be happiest with.

How to Wear Colored Denim: Neon with White Denim


One of our favorite ways to wear white denim is to accencuate your pair of jeans with a pop of color. You can keep the palette simple with white jeans, a white top and break up the outfit with a standard brown belt. But what will take this summer-ready outfit from basic to fashion forward? A dash, pop or hint of any neon. Bold and bright neons are stampeding the fashion scene this season and what way to better have your accessories stand out? What’s your favorite accent color?

How To Wear Colored Jeans: Color-Blocking


Even though monochromatic looks are fun, don’t shy away from pairing colored jeans with other strong colors! Take a hint from Bloomingdale’s and do this: “Boldly layer rich swaths of color to reach saturation point in standout style.” Bet you hadn’t thought about color-blocking with your denim, huh? Here’s one way you can do it–this combination of royal blue jeans and punchy orange top is striking, for sure.
