As the air gets crisp and we all start trading our summer tees for fall sweaters, the search for transitional staples is officially on. Luckily, we’ve found some great in-between-season jeans for the guys to wear (you know, since it’s too soon to break out the heavy duty ultra-dark-wash raw denim). Check out some of our favorite men’s jeans below.
Despite our in-the-moment excitement over novelty washes and fun styles, we’re all about versatility and longevity in our denim selection. So when LOVE Premium Denim approached us with the notion that they supply “the only jean you’ll ever need”, we were intrigued. Further, they donate a portion of proceeds to the CURE Foundation for breast cancer awareness. Styles are named after breast cancer survivors. How’s that for some love?
Our blog editor, Michelle Christina, reviewed her LOVE Premium Denim Lower Rise Kylie jeans below. Check out her thoughts, and be sure to visit their site for more info on the brand.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
They slid on like butter! The fabric is extremely soft. I thought, “I have been dreading the moment where the weather in NYC is cool enough for jeans… but these soften the blow.”
Where/when would you wear these?
I see these being a daytime errand, weekend relaxation, quick fix to an outfit dilemma kind of jean. They’re super comfortable so I will probably fall asleep in them during late night Netflix sessions this fall, but they’re also cute enough to wear with a luxe knit top and some statement jewelry for a dinner date.
How’s the fit?
I’m all about medium-to-high rise, so these are perfect for me. They’re a flattering jean overall. The cotton-lycra blend mean some control action, which most women are interested in. I’ll probably tailor the hems so they’re more flattering around my ankles (I’m 5’7″). After a full day of wear, there wasn’t any noticeable stretching or sagging in the fabric. Overall? I love them.

…becuase they’re not even jeans. We’re not usually the ones to condone jeggings or “fake jeans”, if you will, but Rag & Bone is making us second guess our absolute loyalty to real-deal denim. They’ve released a pair of sweatpants for women, digitally printed with the “denim facade” of one their men’s selvedge jeans from spring 2014. The result? Totally legit to the eye, and totally comfy on your body. Can you tell the difference?
Love these? Grab a pair here.

We love a silk or cotton dress for our globe-trotting adventures just as much as the next girl, but a more edgy, durable, playful option? Denim dresses. We love the idea of pairing a chambray dress with our metallic jewelry, or a floral printed denim dress with some cute beach sandals. When you’re planning your next escape, plan for one of these super cute frocks to come along in your suitcase.

Shop some of our favorite styles of destroyed denim below.
