Los Angeles-based Sinclair Denim may sound familiar to those who have shopped their jeans at high-end retailers like Neiman Marcus, and now, they’re back this summer with some innovative washes and treatments on jeans, bermudas and denim cutoffs. We felt like a kid at a candy store when we saw the Sinclair Spring-Summer 2012 lookbook. Its palette of foil coated jeans, deep indigos, juicy dip-dye pastels, railroad stripe and even glitter offer the woman a chance to dip her hands into any style cookie jar she chooses this summer. We are in love with Sinclair’s tasteful handling of dip dye and innovative use of foil coating. How would you rock a pair of Sinclairs?
We’re totally grooving to the party beat in 7 For All Mankind‘s second fashion campaign video, “Birthday Party,” which features lots of cool party people celebrating a birthday party, California style. So even if the winter blues are getting to you, watch the video to escape and be transported to a warmer time, a spring and summer of endless partying in skimpy bikinis, denim cutoffs and unbuttoned chambray shirts; flipflops optional, and lampshade hats are provided.
Jeans are the epitome of model off-duty style, not only for their ease and capability to rough it through casting calls, but also because they are the perfect clean sartorial palette. New Australian magazine Stonefox captures that casual cool with this striking black-and-white editorial. Donning simple tees (or none at all), ripped and ragged cutoffs, denim jumpsuits, jean jackets, and more, Dempsey Stewart looks fresh-faced and subtly sexy–always a winning combination.
For your viewing and listening pleasures, we bring you model Brianna of Look Models, romping around in a couple of denim cutoff shorts. In “Summer Fun,” Brianna is styled with a couple of beach-friendly tops, taking a stroll while Beck’s “Golden Age” sets the mood. Don’t you just love those lazy weekends? And, don’t think we didn’t notice that she’s showing off a pair of Levi’s high-waisted jeans which have been cut at a slight bias, revealing more on the hips, and longer at the inner thighs. With a bit of fraying, the cut offs look very DIY, but done very well. What do you think of this look? Would you have gone with a low-rise pair of jeans, or do you think this is perfection?
Are you still organizing your summer wardrobe? Popular fashion blog Knight Cat recently posted an editorial of denim shorts and skinny jeans looks for the summer. Whether you’re on vacation in the Bahamas or walking down the Champs-Elys?es, these style ideas should inspire you to rock your colorful cut-off shorts and make the fellas eat their hearts out!
