“I would go over different rhymes in my head, like rhyming ‘disco’ with ‘go-go,’ writing about girls with blue mascara and black eyeliner, and about all of the men I had met who I just loved. It was a very liberating, penniless, hilarious, fun, fun time.”
This Monday morning, we’re hooked on a series of images featuring classic sculptures dressed up in modern day threads. And obviously, that means a whole lot of denim. Whether a classic work shirt or a pair of perfectly fitted jeans, it looks like there’s no one who can’t benefit from our favorite fiber—even if they’re literally ancient.
See the full series here.

J.Crew has given their chambray workshirt a very chic update with a grid of bite sized pale yellow crystal embellishments, hand-appliqued. Fall brings the opportunity to step up your sparkle with accessories and subtle hints, so what better time to invest in a gem like this? Pair it with your favorite contrast wash skinny jeans or a maxi skirt for an autumn evening.

We’ve all had a zipper break on a beloved pair of jeans. It’s frustrating and can render an otherwise perfect pair of jeans unwearable (unless you want to go the unattractive and slightly hazardous safety-pin-in-the-crotch-area route). But you never need to suffer this kind of annoyance again, denim lovers. Repairing the zipper and other hardware on jeans is one of the skills we keep in our denim expert arsenal, so send them in! Here is one of the many zipper repairs we’ve done recently.

We see a lot of crotch holes coming through our office, but it’s not just jeans that suffer wear and tear. One customer sent us a denim shirt with a tear in the hem, and we were able to fix it up for them in a snap. Check out the before and after below, and remember… if it’s denim, we’re up for the challenge!

Denim workshirts are the all-purpose instant dash of cool in your closet, and there’s no better time to wear them than fall. But if you’re looking to put a twist on an already awesome classic, try this quick DIY cut-out project.
Trace out style lines (whether you want to cut out a huge chunk as shown, or smaller slices) in chalk or by thread-basting, on your denim workshirt. Then, get a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors (we love Gingher), and slowly cut along your lines, removing the denim from your workspace.
…That’s it! How did yours turn out? Let us know on facebook!

A few things every man needs in the spring: fresh kicks, a statement watch, and a few breezy chambray shirts. Haus Of Howe is offering up some thin, luxe options—one with a drawstring hooded detail in a super light wash. Imagine either of these paired with some colored chinos or cargo shorts for an easy spring look. No-fuss everyday styling always wins.
Take a closer look below.

If you’re spring cleaning your wardrobe (and looking to fill it with versatile must-haves), we’ve got the guide for you! We’ve come up with five denim staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe: a fitted pair of jeans, button-up shirt, polished shorts, trouser jeans, and a denim jacket. Pick-and-choose the wash or color that best fits your style, then grab these basics–they’ll last past your next closet purge.
The Fitted Jean
Whether you like your jeans super-skinny or prefer a slightly more straight-legged look, a fitted pair of jeans can be as sexy as you want it to be. Worn cuffed with heels for a dressier look, or paired with flats or sandals for a weekend outfit, the options are endless.
The Denim Button-Up Shirt
For a classic way to work denim-on-denim, wear with a denim button-up with jeans, or tuck into a pencil skirt to bridge the gap between casual and dressy at work. For summer, sling on a denim shirt, open and rumpled, over a sundress. It is a perfectly disheveled look, great for picnics and sunny days.

The Cuffed Denim Short
We love denim cut-offs as much as the next girl, but cuffed denim shorts are way more versatile. They look polished enough for slightly dressier occasions (granted, when paired with dressier tops and accessories), but you can also wear cuffed denims shorts to the beach and not feel overdressed.
The Trouser Jean
Sometimes, you have to give your legs room to breathe. Trouser jeans can be worn at work, but they also look great with platform heels outside of the office, or whenever you feel like your fitted jeans are just a little too tight for whoever you’re meeting up with.

The Classic Denim Jacket
There’s something to be said about the power of a classic denim jacket. It’s ready to be worn and torn (no, actually), and is quintessential Americana. Wear it to dress down outfits, wear it to add casual cool. Hey, denim jackets are the very definition of nonchalance.
