The 5 Denim Staples Every Woman Should Own


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.

Hanneli Mustaparta For Rag & Bone DIY Project


Hanneli Mustaparta is one of the new faces of the Rag & Bone DIY Project, and we are completely in love with what she has to show for it. The backstory of this project is that Rag & Bone gave models their jeans, a camera and nothing else–no makeup, no styling, just them and their jeans. You may be thinking, “Ok, what doesn’t look good on Hanneli?” which we don’t blame you for…but take a look at how she makes these jeans look so good and you see right away how easy these looks can be for you too. When you have skinny jeans like these that have such a great fit, you don’t need to overdo anything, but instead keep it super simple in a white sheer blouse or your favorite comfy tee.  Get your own pair at the Rag & Bone Official Store and see just how quickly you can be part of a DIY project too (this time starring yourself of course).

How To Mix A Suit Jacket With Jeans


Should you or shouldn’t you break up a suit?  

And, when you do, what pants do you wear?

cory_monteith_jeans_white_shir

“The only passable way of mixing a suit is wearing a navy-blue suit jacket with a pair of fitted dark-wash jeans, which always looks chic.” Via Richard James, Savile Row Tailor (GQ Magazine UK, June 2011)

 

…Though we think white jeans and a navy blazer works well too, if you’re going for the resort look!

5 Good Reasons (& Ways) To Have Denim Therapy Fix Your Jeans


It happens to the best of us. We trip, we fall, we have kids, we gain and lose weight, we don’t always shop for the best-fitting jeans because we’re blinded by a brand on sale, etc… shopping for denim and building a relationship with your favorite pair of jeans is no low-maintenance task. There are a myriad of things that can go wrong along the way, but rather than giving up on them, why not let us bring them back to life?
