While resort season is generally known for clothing conducive to poolside lounging and exotic vacations, when denim is involved it tends to be in the form of super wear-able styles and a dominance of light wash. We also saw some trends pop up, like wide legs and printed boyfriend jeans. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite blue jean cameos in the resort 2013 collections.

Renee recently tried out a pair of Raven Caden Carrots in navy. To see some pictures and find out what she had to say (spolier: she loved them!) check out her post below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
They’re not quite denim, but a soft, medium-weight cotton in a classic navy. The name “Caden Carrot” was intimidating (carrot-shaped jeans are definitely not meant for my small-bottomed self), but I was pleasantly surprised by the fit.
Where/when would you wear these?
Rolled up, I’ll enjoy these relaxed-fit pants with sandals and some breezy crop tops and tees. A nice sheer button down would be a great way to take these to work.
How’s the fit?
They’re super comfortable, and can be worn low on the hips for a little bit of a drop-crotch look or pulled up for a more of a classic chino feel. Either way, they’re easy breezy.

Two of the biggest, boldest looks in denim this season are bright colors and jeans that are distressed and destroyed. We’ve seen everything from causal knee holes to seriously torn legs. But how do you decide where the line is — the line between fashionable frays and ferocious tears is a fine one, and Denim Therapy is here for you when you decide the holes are too holy or they just aren’t cool anymore. We can fix the smallest rips to providing complete rebuilding of your jeans, plus so much more. Take a look!
Last week we shared our photoshoot with Brooklyn DJ and fashion minx Haruka Salt. Now watch to see what her favorite denim brands are and get an even closer look into her Bed Stuy apartment (and closet). We showed her how to pair pastels with zebra print jeans and neon tank tops with vintage acid wash and now you can learn the tricks of the trade, too!
EACH x OTHER’s latest lookbook is here and it’s nothing short of rocker grunge. The new photos are jam packed with the brand’s androgynous chic style with a perfect mash up of hipster flare. EACH x OTHER’s unique collaboration of fashion designers, artists, poets, filmmakers and musicians make for an exclusive line that flaunts flattering unisex fits. Their rough luxury denim is just the beginning with raw fabrications and timeless cuts. Check out the teaser for their Lookbook Fall/Winter 2012 collection.
Alex Spencer is the Australian beauty starring in Car Mar (LF Store‘s new denim line)’s latest lookbook. The shoot takes place in Venice Beach and sums up a perfect lazy summer day, from toting a surf board through the streets to lounging around on the couch. Skateboards and beach houses are not forgotten, of course. The denim itself lends itself nicely to west coast lifestyle, but downtown east coast girls will be rocking it just as easily. Our favorites? A pair of destroyed peach cut-off shorts and a dip-dye bleached out workshirt.
The two worlds of fashion and food rarely collide, but the brains behind Naked & Famous Denim have linked the two with ease. Naked & Famous have created scratch and sniff jeans that lasts up to 5 washes. The idea is reminiscent of nostalgic scratch and sniff stickers from way back when. These radical and raw raspberry-infused denim come in the Weird Guy fit with a button fly. These jeans are certainly the ultimate conversation starter. Do you mind if we smell your pants?
AG jeans wants to take you on a road trip for their Spring 2012 collection. The nomad inspired shoot is full of our denim favorites: colored shorts, cropped capri’s, full flares, divine distressing, pleated pockets and new loud washes. The new women’s denim silhouettes are feminine, flattering and perfectly complimented with a simple and chic white top or denim work shirt. The men’s collection remains classic with hints of newcolored denim for men. Summer road trips have never looked so relaxed, what style will you rock this summer?
