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?
If you want to get your hands on a pair of Sinclair Denim, try the Coe Legging Jean in Golden Lights or the Fixed Coe Skinny in Proxy (an ombré blue), both available at REVOLVE Clothing.

We’ll be the first to admit, we’re constantly browsing Etsy for cheap jeans and exciting vintage denim, whether it’s the DIY ambitions a super creative designer-in-the-making or straight up hard-to-find retro jeans that our parents used to love. Today though, we came across a real gem: vintage Levi high-waisted white jean short, dip-dyed to pastel perfection. And we decided to post them up instead of buying them and making a run for it. You’re welcome!
Want ’em? There’s only one pair, and they’re just $40! Buy them here (be sure to read the full item description for sizing and other info).
