Comedian Kristen Wiig Rocks Denim In V Magazine


We love former SNL staple and brilliant comedian Kristen Wiig, so we’re thrilled to see her in V Magazine‘s spring issue. Even better, she’s rocking stylish denim duds: a bleached out denim jacket, and medium wash mid rise cropped jeans. We already knew she had style, but now we’re totally crazed.

Mint Green Jeans Make A Comeback With Guess SS13


Need a vacation? Take a digital one with GUESS and their spring 2013 ad campaign. They’re bringing mint green jeans back on the scene with a pair of very fresh overdyed cut-off shorts. Shot in Bora Bora, the campaign features Gigi Hadid and Stephan Lambert in P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E. They sprinkled their brand with a bit of bohemian style this time around. We’re digging it.

Catch up on what’s happening and browse our personal picks for the most interesting what-not that turns up during our morning web crawl. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!

1. Cali menswear brand Kent Denim just opened a new shop within a shop inside PAR-LA in West Hollywood.

2. So we’ve heard of denim furniture, but how about denim appliances? Smeg has created a 1950s-style refrigerator made from plasma-coated denim, the FAB28RDB. And apparently it’s not just in looks–the fridge also has a seam stitched in, so it’s just like a pair of jeans (kinda).

Street Style: Camo + Bleached Out Denim


Wearing camouflage  can be pretty tricky (and sometimes even impossible!). Stylish and always casual-cool Mohcine of Morocco shows us how to sport the print the right way without looking like you’re ready to get your Rambo on. He pairs a pair of bleached out jeans with a thoroughly buttoned shirt in an overall dark and subtle camo print. We really dig how the two textures give off a cool and modern vibe! Too much going on for your taste? Throwing on a cool hooded leather jacket will not only tone things down and anchor things but will add an extra bit of edge! We’ve broken the look down for you for some style direction, check it out bellow!

1. YMC P2A16 Placket camel cam shirt ($227) — buy it at Coggles.

2. Mr. Zero distressed bleached jeans ($82) — buy it at Yes Style.

Denim DIY: Bleach Your Cut-Off Shorts For Some Cool Summer Style


Feeling creative? We’re going to show you one way to take a boring old pair of shorts and turn them into a super-happening pair of strategically bleached-out cut-offs! If you’re looking for a professional bleach job or dye job done by the pros, Denim Therapy offers incredible bleach/dye services that will turn your jeans into a dream. But if you want to experiment and have some fun, read on and we’ll guide you through one of the many ways you can modify your denim!

We started out with a pair of bright blue shorts (with a bit of stretch) that hit just below the knee. We decided to give these run-of-the-mill bottoms a new life by turning them into a multi-color, semi-destroyed pair of cut-offs.

Step 1. Cut them to your preferred length. There are no definite measurements for this—it’s up to you if you want to show a bit of your behind or if you want to be more modest. Always try them on, and then mark them. Remember the fabric will rise up about 1/2″ once cut, depending on the fiber content. Cut them longer if you plan to cuff them up.

Step 2. Do a bit of destroying. You can always continue after you have finished bleaching them. Use a scissor, razor, or any rough/sharp edge. Separate fibers at the hem and slits you make in the denim (patience is a virtue). You will see an increase in fringe and loose threads after you wash them, so don’t worry if they look too clean cut at the beginning.

Step 3. Set up a bleaching station. You will need bleach, a bin of water and bleach (our ratio was 2/3 bleach, 1/3 water—but you’ll have to experiment to find your ideal mixture according to your denim’s wash, texture, and fiber content), protective gloves, and a toothbrush.

Be sure you’re doing this in a well-ventilated area, such as nearby an open window.

Step 4. Apply bleach with toothbrush. Flick, spray, splatter, and otherwise distribute the bleach how ever you please. We brushed ours downward from the seamline of the waistband, and then flicked some bleach at random on the fabric.

Step 5. Wait and watch! If the denim isn’t quite bleaching, add more.

Step 6. Repeat step 5 until you’re happy with your bleach-out! At this point, we added a towel to keep the bleach from hitting the wood base the denim was laying on.

Step 7. Once the front is dry, you can rinse and dry, or flip them over and do the same thing (quickly, because you don’t want the bleach to sit in the denim too long). By now you’ll have a good idea of how much bleach to use and how long to leave it.

We also added faux-pockets with bleach to our shorts, because the welt pockets weren’t doing it for us.

Step 8. Rinse thoroughly in hot water (don’t worry if some of the dye runs out of the shorts. It’s probably going to happen—just make sure there are no dishes in your sink). Hang them or lay them to dry somewhere with plenty of ventilation. Once they’re dry, you’re done!

Step 9. Embellish! If you’re feeling extra creative, grab a patch or some studs, and decorate your shorts!

In one afternoon, you can have brand new shorts to flaunt. Be sure to take them out this weekend, and make your friend jealous. If they ask where you got ‘em, tell them about your friends at Denim Therapy. *wink wink*

5 Good Reasons (& Ways) To Have Denim Therapy Fix Your Jeans


It happens to the best of us. We trip, we fall, we have kids, we gain and lose weight, we don’t always shop for the best-fitting jeans because we’re blinded by a brand on sale, etc… shopping for denim and building a relationship with your favorite pair of jeans is no low-maintenance task. There are a myriad of things that can go wrong along the way, but rather than giving up on them, why not let us bring them back to life?

need-denim-therapy-1

It requires lots of love (and sometimes therapy) to keep your favorite jeans in good shape, but if you commit, they’ll be with you through the years. Scroll down our top 5 list of reasons you might need a little Denim Therapy of your own.

While you may be jumping for joy at the thought of a new tot on the way, your jeans are struggling to keep up with your maternity waistline. Instead of ditching your favorite denim for 9 months and buying maternity clothing, why not let us adjust your jeans so you can keep wearing them?

Here’s how it works: You pick your own favorite figure enhancing jeans. Denim Therapy will work their magic by inserting expandable side seams to move and grow with you! Once you’ve brought yourself back to your pre-maternity figure, Denim Therapy will restore your jeans back..
