When Charley 5.0 hit the scene they were determined on being a “fashion brand” that were straying from the typical jean. And they’ve done that pretty successfully, with some super cute adaptations of sportswear (and even borderline evening wear) in chambray and denim that seduced celebs and civilians alike. Their holiday & spring 2012 lookbook is no exception, with a breezy summer backdrop and clothing that’s anything but standard. Floor length dresses and crop-tops add some light bohemian edge to a color story of nautical whites and medium wash blue.
The styling is clearly warm-weather oriented, but there are some pieces we just can’t wait for. A floor length button-front denim dress with long sleeves has us spinning in our office chairs with the desire to wear-right-now, and we can say the same for the dark wash denim jumpsuit (which is sleeveless, but imagine it with a sheer scoop neck top and a big chunky sweater—yowza!). While summer withdrawal is the first impression we got when we saw these looks, we’re happy to see some items that get us revved up for layering, too.
