After poring over images of pristine clothing photographed on models posing static and sitting in one place, it’s easy to forget that clothes are meant to be moved in. That’s why Play Me Jeans’s fall/winter 2011 lookbook is a breath of fresh air (no, really). You can’t help but smile at how acid-wash skinnies or printed, distressed denim shorts look when running, jumping, leaping, and contorting–so fun! The men’s options are far from boring either. Cropped jodhpurs? Studs, leather swatches, and black denim rolled into one pair of pants? There’s only one word to describe looks like these: cool.
We’re pretty into preppy style: equestrian, heritage… you know, clean, functional clothes that make you look like you have a fat wallet and an Ivy League Alma Mater. Celebs love this look too, and Jodhpurs are one way to get that job done in a snap. LeAnn Rimes was spotted recently in an Elizabeth and James Paillette Trim Cotton Blouse, Rag & Bone/JEAN The Jodhpur Legging Jeans, and some fierce Lanvin Cutout Heel Pumps. “Ides of March” actress Evan Rachel Wood wore her J Brand‘s Jodhpur in Sharkskin in a mix of masculin-féminin with high top boots and a leather jacket. These ladies have the look down—but which interpretation is your fav?

J Brand‘s latest release has the equestrian style-loving crowd cheering for joy—a sophisticated, fashion-forward take on jodhpurs with inner-knee patches and ankle zippers. Made with a fine luxe twill, this style is coming out with their Fall 2011 release, and they combine a playful sporty prep aesthetic with something that feels sexy (and expensive). Will they catch on? Celebs will probably love them, and they’ll make waves before long—but one thing’s for sure. These will look killer with a pair of heeled boots and a suit jacket for fall.
