Garance Doré is singing the aesthetic praise of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans this week on her blog, and we couldn’t agree more. The chic-yet-playful take on average denim is basic, but interesting enough to take a regular sweater-and-jeans outfit to the next level. Patchwork jeans and two-toned jeans are a huge trend for spring, so prep your closet. Add some metallic jewelry and a pair of killer heels, and you’ve got yourself a perfect NYFW look. Which, by the way, is juuuust around the corner…

When someone says “effortlessly chic“, one of the first things we imagine are the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, worn with a great top and some killer heels. We think Fashionvibe has the right idea with this look: she adds sunnies and oversized earrings to the mix for a look that no one wants to mess with. One step up? The sweater and jeans are embellished with playful sprays of flat-back gem action. Don’t forget to cuff!

We stopped by the Jean.Machine men’s denim launch party in Soho last night at Recess, which took place in the midst of a gallery opening for artist Greg Eason. The jeans were laid out on a table in the middle of the room. The walls were lined with framed illustrations and a projector screen played fast-forward video of Eason’s illustration process. The atmosphere? Laid back and classic-cool, just like Jean.Machine’s denim. The female counterpart to MiH, Jean.Machine was the “it” denim shop in the 70s, and its rebirth is a representation of the original customer: “The man who loves to wear jeans.”
The line is carefully edited to go-to staples in an array of versatile washes (as well as raw options), all with a comfortable hand. The jeans feature key details like unique coin pocket, 17mm silver and copper logo button, 0.8mm single stitch hem, and the iconic Jean Machine label. Within three months of launching, they’re seeing the beginnings of a cult following.
Check out our photos below, and see more photos on our facebook!

Our editor Michelle Christina branched out into new territory recently: flare leg jeans revival. Reluctant at first to try the re-born trend out (middle school memories are not exactly incentive, you see), she had a change of heart upon seeing the gorgeous MiH Jeans Marrakesh mid-rise kick flare in Reed wash. See her review of the style below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
It took a minute to get used to the flare legs after so many years of being a devout skinny jean fan, but as soon as I put heels on I felt better about them. Immediately I loved the high waist and the luxe, soft, amazing fabrication. MiH is really known for incredible, comfortable fabrics and this is no exception.
Where/when would you wear these?
These are probably going to be my summer go-to jeans for the beach, BBQ’s, and more casual outings. I like how they look with heels but I used Denim Therapy’s hemming service to shorten them to the perfect length (so they work heels or with my moccasins). I can imagine wearing them with big loose-knit sweaters or even just a bikini top.
How’s the fit?
Incredible. They’re one of the best fitting pairs of jeans I’ve ever tried on. Super flattering, stretch where it counts, the right amount of snugness in the hips. I loved that they didn’t stretch out during the course of the day. Now that I know how amazing the Marrakesh fits me personally, I think I’ll be investing in a few more washes.

As with its full length counterpart, the denim short is a style essential because it can broadcast a classic, preppy look just as effectively as it can compliment an outfit that’s fierce and punk-rock inspired. Arriving in must-have renditions like floral, neon, and tie-dye, you can delve into trend-chasing with the knowledge that they won’t go out of style anytime soon. Even novelty denim has more longevity than other fabrics, so with that in mind, here are 12 selects from our personal wishlist.
1. Christopher Kane Neon stretch-denim cut-off shorts ($290) – buy it at Net-A-Porter.
2. Topshop MOTO coral dip-dyed hotpants ($68) – buy it at Topshop.
3. Madewell indigo ink sweatshorts ($38) – buy it at Madewell.
