When the weather gets cold, clothes go high-contrast—that’s what we learned from stylish Sarah Caye. This Brooklyn-dwelling designer & DIY-extraordinaire rocked red stretch skinny jeans with a DIY-cut t-shirt and black boots over the weekend. We’re digging this red and black color combo, accented with the gold thread of the embroidered Chanel logo on the vintage t-shirt. “My Grandma gave this to me”, she explained. Details of her look are below.

NYC, college students, parties, random hookups and a pair of missing jeans, come full circle in MTV’s new original series I just want my pants back, a television remake of David J Rosen’s (who also happens to be the show’s producer) famous novel. The show follows Jason Strider a 20 something yr old college graduate who has an unexpected one night stand with Annie, who then borrows his jeans in a rush and only to never return them. Annie’s contact information turns out to be erroneous, leaving Jason with no apparent way to find her. Thus leading to the seemingly never-ending quest for Jason’s jeans and so to speak, himself along the way. Set in Greenpoint Brooklyn, this comical and quite amusing, coming of age series, makes our relationship with our denim just that much stronger. (Who would have thought all that conviction and love would go into getting our favorite pair of jeans back?) Full season episodes are set to start this coming January, we’ll be watching, will you? Check out a sneak preview below.

We’d never thought we’d see the day when two of our favorite past times (happy hour and denim of course!) join forces to coexist as one. But the day has come, and to say the least, we’re quite ecstatic about the “injeanious” collaboration. Reason why? Denim Lounge located in the heart of New York City’s diverse Brooklyn neighborhood Bedford-Stuyvesant, is home to a jazzy live band, $2 tuesdays ($2 drinks specials, defintelty love at first sight) and weekly events that allow local talent to show case their work. But don’t let the down to earth vibe fool you, the decor in this lounge is one to be reckoned with. The glistening black bar, red scalloped banquettes, and scented candles will leave you feeling swanky as if you just stepped into the Gansevoort Hotel. But being the denim lovers that we are, we take great appreciation to the quirky mural of a topless chick wearing a pasted-on pair of jeans and the muted prince videos that play on a projectile screen. Denim lounge has definitely lived up to its name and we’re not complaining one bit. Cheers!

When our DT bloggers took the Brooklyn streets in Buffalo David Bitton Jeans recently, they found two things: the bi-polar weather requires a cardigan back-up plan, and wearing Buffalo shorts makes it way easier to catch a cab. Editorial intern Ashlee rocked a pair of cuffed, dark-wash semi-bleached out Jackson short with an ethnic-print red knit tank and turquoise bead-rope necklace.
Here’s what she had to say about the experience:
“After sashaying my hips in these Buffalo Denim Bermuda Shorts it was love at first sight (and fit). The vintage wash was perfect with my crop top and the cut contoured to my curves, while also making my petite frame, in particular (my short legs) look a mile long. They were soft yet durable, keeping up with me on an eight hour day of running errands without losing snugness. he denim, lasted throughout an 8hr day of running errands, without losing snugness. This was a match made in heaven, I must say!”
Check out Ashlee rocking her shorts below, and stay tuned… the DT bloggers have more summer denim excursions to share…
