Current/Elliott Introduces Leopard & Floral Jeans for Spring


Denim brand Current/Elliott has taken colored jeans to a new level for Spring 2012 by offering leopard prints and florals in their popular Stiletto low-rise skinny jeans fit.  The neon-striped and floral prints are sold out and hard to find online, but you can find the leopard print jeans at many online retailers.  From a faded “dusty peach” to “petal-pink” to “mint,” you can explore the wild side of color in these easy-on-the-eyes pastel hues.  However, if you are really in love with a more traditional leopard jean, Current/Elliott also has the reddish “fig,” black, gray and camel colored leopard jeans, denim skirts and jacket.  Pair your leopard pastel jeans with black booties or a neutral colored shoe, and you’re ready to rock.

Current/Elliott releases pastel jeans in leopard and floral prints for Spring 2012.

You can find a selection of Current/Elliott’s Stilt Leopard skinny jeans at REVOLVE Clothing online and Net-a-Porter online.

Loved by the Kardashian sisters and celebs like AnnaLynne McCord and Keri Hilson, Bleulab provides fully reversible denim, for double the styling fun with each pair of jeans.

TEXTILE Elizabeth & James: Colored Python Jeans, Kaleidoscopes & Denim Overalls For Spring


This spring, expect to see stylish people not only rocking colored jeans, but pastel snakeskin print jeans, thanks to TEXTILE Elizabeth & James.  The denim-driven brand offshoot of the more runway-friendly Elizabeth & James fashion label is daring fashionistas to go boldly beyond solid neons (check out their pre-Spring neon capsule collection at Shopbop) and basic five-pocket jeans.  Fancy a psychedelic kaleidoscope print?  Last season’s nod to the ’70s continues somewhat; however, the collection has a larger ’80s fashion presence: skinny ankle jeans, pastel denim and a boyish denim overall.  If you’re still in love with their bell bottom jeans, TEXTILE will have a juicier version to appease you.  Check out the lookbook and take it all in.

TEXTILE Elizabeth & James offers colored and printed jeans in vivid and pastel hues.

Taming Leopard Print Jeans for Work–It’s Not That Difficult!


When your wild side is itching to come out, leopard print jeans are an obvious statement-making sartorial choice. But sometimes you’ll feel the call of the wild and need to–dare I say–keep your look work-appropriate. No threadbare tees or fur chubby jackets allowed! Thankfully, stylist Geraldine Saglio’s done a great job of taming the print in a way that will make you feel kickass without going overboard. Start with a neutral print pair of jeans (save the wild and crazy brights for going out at night), add a clean-cut silk or chiffon shirt, and keep all your accessories simple and in the same color family. It’s the best way to look both sassy and classy!

1. Banana Republic Harness Buckle Belt ($49.50) — buy it at Banana Republic

2. Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Brown Suede Gladiator Sandals ($164.95) — buy it at EmphaticNYC

3. Current/Elliot Stiletto Leopard Skinny Jeans ($198) — buy it at Neiman Marcus

4. Equipment ‘Signature’ Silk Shirt ($208) — buy it at Nordstrom
