It’s never too early to start thinking about spring flowers and warm sunshine, right? Some of us are already dreaming ahead to cut-off shorts weather. Get a head start on securing your spring denim essentials with this guide from Fashion Gone Rogue.
If you were to break down what denim must-haves to acquire for your closet, where would you start? We went by our favorite denim staples for any man, for every occasion this spring, and pulled out several solid pieces that can be worn and loved for many seasons: (1) the denim jacket, (2) the denim shirt, and the various cuts of jeans that are fashion director approved: (3) the slim fit jean, (4) the straight leg and (5) a men’s skinny jean. The next question is, can you choose just one?

This fall True Religion ditches its usual bohemian hippie vibe and highlights its western side in a classic Americana mix of leather, vintage plaids, ditsy florals, and denim essentials. Shot by Nino Mu?oz and modeled by Anne Vyalitsyna, head-to-toe denim looks accented with Navajo printed belts and turquoise jewelry definitely give the double denim look a killer (though not-so-groundbreaking) revamp. A suede chunky platform in a saturated camel hue instead of a cowboy boot could definitely take this from ultra-conceptual to totally wearable. We dig! The west is officially back ya’ll!

Is it too early for this much sex appeal? We think not. Mih Jeans has had plenty of practice in outfitting carefree endless-summer starlets from certified “vintage” times to present, and their newest lookbook shows no sway in their aesthetic aim. And seeing as Mih is one label that will only purchase fabrics from suppliers who meet their environmentally-responsible standards (and produce everything in factories that have been in the family for decades), this is one visual vacation we can get behind. Minimally styled utilizing only the best denim wardrobe essentials from work shirts to jeans in wide-leg and skinny fits, this spring lookbook has an overall appeal that makes transitioning between seasons that much easier.
