Net-A-Porter‘s curated e-magazine, The Edit, is all about denim this issue. Focusing on the versatility of our favorite textile, Editor Jennifer Dickinson comments, “Fashion is one of the few industries where denim is an acceptable part of the working wardrobe. Or it was – this season, with Valentino, Tomas Maier and Victoria Beckham adding our favorite fabric to their runway repertoire, even city offices can get theblues.” See the whole issue here.

Once upon a time, the phrase double denim called to mind images of “Canadian tuxedos” and horrific family photos from the 90s featuring multiple generations wearing jean shirts and jeans. But then, a couple years ago, double denim became a thing. The chicest models-off-duty and fashion editors began sporting the look to fashion week, and then style bloggers ran wild with it. Fall is a denim-heavy season to be sure, so to gear up for it, we’re breaking down ways to make your double denim look expensive and stylish, with the help of this great outfit from Viva Luxury.

1. Mix washes. Pairing two medium wash denim pieces together? Bad. Mixing a medium-to-light wash chambray button down with acid wash jeans? Perfection.
2. Tote a chic bag. Head-to-toe denim with a fabric bag over your shoulder definitely looks casual-cool, but not “expensive”. Do yourself a favor and grab your vintage chanel clutch or other cute purse to keep the look high end.
3. Wear fresh kicks. Nothing says “I am effortlessly stylish and I make more money than you!” than a pair of fresh, clean kicks to punctuate your outfit. Bonus points for metallics.

Silicon Valley, home to engineers, innovators, and geeks that are changing the world as we speak, prefer a certain kind of uniform for their days of working on your next favorite gadget. What is it, you ask? Jeans!
Unzipped reports, “There’s a scene in the first season of HBO’s new comedy, Silicon Valley, wherein a fictional tech CEO describes the stereotypical organization of coding teams. And while he goes into some detail about the usual suspects of a coding group, we couldn’t help but notice a different common attribute: denim.
Indeed, denim makes more than a cameo in the HBO show, gracing the legs of not only the startup team protagonists, but also the tech titan Peter Gregory (played by the late great Christopher Evan Welch), who invests in them. And while Silicon Valley might be the funniest outpost to correlate denim with the tech world, it certainly isn’t the first.” (See the full post at Unzipped)

Alessandra Ambrosio was recently seeing strolling through LA wearing a gorgeous front-slit floral skirt and a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket in “River” wash. We love the combination of a chambray jacket and a flowing, summery skirt. Some metallic arm candy and simple flat sandals round out the casual daytime look. You could also layer a swimsuit beneath rather than a tank, for a transitional daytime to beach look. What can we say? We’ve got summer fun on the brain.
Grab a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket and get the look!

Update your denim look this summer with a cuffing technique you may not have tried yet: the single fold cuff. Honestly WTF spotted this trend everywhere around the world, but it’s making waves in NYC as women become more adventurous and stray from the skinny jean trend. This cuff works best on wider leg pants, whether stovepipe style or boyfriend. Will you be trying it?
Check out Honestly WTF for more images and inspiration, and be sure to check out our video on how to cuff your jeans.
