Daily Denim Tip: What Shoes To Wear With Cut-Off Shorts


“I’m a true believer there aren’t any denim don’ts, as long as you style things properly and dress for your body type. With summer here, it’s a great time to take advantage of all the amazing cut-off shorts available, but it’s equally as important to pair them with the right shoes. Cut-off shorts are a day-time look that should be paired with a chic slip-on or gladiator sandal. While we’re obviously showing off our gams by wearing cut-offs, we should also keep it sophisticated, yet fun & casual… This isn’t the time to wear 6″ wedges!

Try to pick a style with a higher rise since this offers a more flattering silhouette when the inseam is already teeny tiny! [BLANKNYC] offers a super chic pair at a really affordable price point—I love pairing these with my K. Jacques sandals.”

Daily Denim Tip: How To Wear White Jeans All Year


“Contrary to popular belief, white denim can be worn year-round, as long as its styled appropriately. When purchasing white denim, you want to be sure the fabric is not too lightweight making it see-through, but also not too heavy as that causes bunching in all the wrong places. A 9oz. white denim is ideal for anytime. Make sure pockets detailing and stitching are minimal as to not draw attention to the bum or hips/thighs. A crisp white wide leg is ideal for summer, paired with espadrilles or wooden wedges and bold colors on top! Take this opportunity to play around with your accessories, a great turquoise necklace, chunky gold bangles, etc.

In the winter I find that a classic straight leg or skinny fit are ideal for pairing with ankle boots and tucking into knee high boots. Keep the color palette in the neutral family during the winter months, and mix-in luxe fabrications such as cashmere to create a warm, sophisticated look. MiH Jeans carries two of my favorite white denim styles.”

Daily Denim Tip: Marisa Grimshaw of Bollare Communications On How To Travel With Jeans


“When traveling, pack for style AND convenience! Pick 2 styles that can easily transition from day to night, allowing you to get the most use for the least amount of suitcase space. I love the ‘Spray On Skinny’ from [BLANKNYC] because it’s super lightweight, offered in several washes, and can be worn with sandals, ankle boots or wedges. A wide leg trouser is another great option because it can be worn casually with a cotton tank top or dressed up with a great silk Equipment blouse. David Kahn currently has one of my favorite, ultra light weight trousers.”
