We Want Just About Everything From The BLANK NYC SS12 Lookbook

After seeing the BLANK NYC spring 2012 collection up close, we knew we were going to be psyched when the full line was revealed in lookbook form for spring 2012. The line ranges from rich, dark washes to baby-blue jeans, featuring fashion-forward separates like denim tunic dresses and workshirts to style with. Our favorites? A pair of stovepipe-legged medium-wash, mid-rise jeans that scream bohemian summer, and the range of colored ankle-crop skinnies that beg to be worn with a fierce pair of heels and a man’s tailored shirt. We have to give props for the form-fitting overalls, too: a valiant attempt at turning an accepted frumpy classic into something far more feminine. Check out the full lookbook below.

Skulls, Color, & Classics Up Next For Blank NYC Denim

From what we saw while previewing the Blank NYC spring 2012 line, the brand intends to keep it rock’n’roll with destroyed denim (we loved their super-short white shredded cut-offs) and even some whimsical, skull-shaped studs. They showed us a pair of black jeans with destroyed back pockets and ghastly little faces partially lining the contour (the missing studs are intentional and create the look of worn-in-beat-up).  The cut-offs were adorned with boho belts, and in a more preppy turn of aesthetics, pastel denim was abound. Two picks we adored were the pastel denim pencil skirts. They also showed classics like basic washes in your standard styles and a covetable denim workshirt.

Announcing Our Denim Therapy x BLANK NYC Giveaway Winners!

The wait is over! We want to thank everyone who entered our BLANK NYC denim giveaway last week, and now it’s time to reveal two lucky winners of the Fire Dept Spray-On Skinny Jeans for women, and the Ivory 5-Pocket Relaxed Straight Leg Jeans for men. We had a blast reading about why you wanted these jeans and how you’d style them this summer, from celebrating recent weight loss with skinny jeans to needing something fresh for the upcoming season in your closet. Well, two of you will get to fulfill your denim desires right now.

And the winners are…

Marc Carusiello and Sarah Caye!

Marc’s Comment:

“As a tall, skinny, Brooklyn-to-LA-for-the-summer transplant, I know a little something about the hip fashions of men in their 20s. Inspired by some white linen pants I sported last year, I’d pair these jeans with sailer-type shirts (navy stripes; black and gold details…) and my beloved brown and navy boat shoes. I’m also completely serious when I say, I would absolutely toss a captains hat on when I’m feeling especially saucy. This is Hollywood in the summer, afterall.”

Sarah Caye’s Comment (and she even left us a snapshot so we could see her red kisser’s!):

I rock bright red color stay lipstick 24-7. It never comes off. I like that these are Fire Dept Spray-On Skinny Jeans. Kinda has the same ring. I have a feeling I would wearing the two together quite a bit.”


They’ll be taking home…

I looooove those red jeans! I’d style them with a faded out beige tie-dye loose tee, some chunky wooden-heeled platforms, an oversized leather bag, and an armful of bangles!—Ashley

I would love to rock them in NYC with a bright pink top so that I could try the new colorblocking trend!—Lee

Wow, those bright red denim skinnies are definitely a statement maker! I would pair this beauty with some classic black&white Converse Chuck Taylor shoes + a loose, plain white t-shirt + leather jacket (like the Tyler Leather Moto Jacket by Coach) + Aviators sunglasses.—Maria J

I’d have to pair these awesome red beauties with a Navajo belt. And then, I’d tuck a v-neck, fitted white tee in to complete the look. I’d rock some feathered earrings and a pair of strappy sandals for a ultra hip tribal look.-–Superherogirlld

I would don these wonderful white pants with my black cowboy hat and black and white sunglasses– it would totally kick ass. To accessorize, I would pull long sips from a straw leading to a mason jar full of hooch.—Eric Schmidt

I would wear a Flowy cream tank top, my beige oxfords with the fire dept spray skinny jeans.—Henley

I’ve been looking for the perfect red denim jeans, and these are PERFECT!  I would pair them with the Miha Beaded Cutout Top in Pearl and nude platform heels!—Candice M Sims

I’d pair these glorious red honeys with a lightweight, semi-transparent white button-up, tucked in on one side with my DKNY leather, pointy-toed Oxfords. By night, because I’m in LA, I’d switch to a bright pink tank with my ivory Kimchi Blue crepe jacket and load myself down with gold necklaces. I’d finish the look of with my black and white polka dot, four-inch Seychelles heels.—Comeuppances

Daily Denim Tip: What Shoes To Wear With Cut-Off Shorts

“I’m a true believer there aren’t any denim don’ts, as long as you style things properly and dress for your body type. With summer here, it’s a great time to take advantage of all the amazing cut-off shorts available, but it’s equally as important to pair them with the right shoes. Cut-off shorts are a day-time look that should be paired with a chic slip-on or gladiator sandal. While we’re obviously showing off our gams by wearing cut-offs, we should also keep it sophisticated, yet fun & casual… This isn’t the time to wear 6″ wedges!

Try to pick a style with a higher rise since this offers a more flattering silhouette when the inseam is already teeny tiny! [BLANKNYC] offers a super chic pair at a really affordable price point—I love pairing these with my K. Jacques sandals.”


Get the look! Blank Denim Classique Cutoff Shorts ($71) – buy it at ShopbopK. Jacques Jival Asymmetrical Thong Sandals ($228) – buy it at Shopbop.

Daily Denim Tip: Marisa Grimshaw of Bollare Communications On How To Travel With Jeans

“When traveling, pack for style AND convenience! Pick 2 styles that can easily transition from day to night, allowing you to get the most use for the least amount of suitcase space. I love the ‘Spray On Skinny’ from [BLANKNYC] because it’s super lightweight, offered in several washes, and can be worn with sandals, ankle boots or wedges. A wide leg trouser is another great option because it can be worn casually with a cotton tank top or dressed up with a great silk Equipment blouse. David Kahn currently has one of my favorite, ultra light weight trousers.”

High Rising, High Waisted Denim For Spring 2011

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know flare legs are the it-cut for spring—but where’s your waistline preference at the moment? Stylelist reports that the high rise waistline is happening in full force for spring, with a host of new products on the market to prove it. They make several good points as to why this is a good thing via 7 For All Mankind’s Mille Monferin, including balancing the flare leg silhoutte, hiding lower back abundance, and creating a longer, sexier leg line.

Check out the full review at Stylelist, and find out what the big names in denim (J Brand, Diesel, Pray for Mother Nature, and Blank NYC to name a few) feel about the newest wave in high-rise mania.

[BLANKNYC] Gets Back to Basic for Spring 2011

We love the [BLANKNYC] spring 2011 lookbook—it’s straight forward, functional, and chic. The flirty short-shorts with contrast flap pockets and saturated blue match-everything skinny jeans are flawless spring wardrobe staples. Stylish accents like loose-fit high-waisted fire engine red lounge pants and cropped/cuffed dark wash jeans make for edgy picks in the evening. Each look could be punctuated with a pair of converse or a serious pair of heels. Everyone from the L.L. Bean lovers to the Diesel-addicts should find something they adore in this collection, and we can’t wait to rock it ourselves!
