Denim obsession? Yes, we’ve got one. But we also love our pets. So when Free People’s Pet Project released an adorable denim dog tent and denim dog bed, we were helpless. Who wouldn’t want their pooch sleeping on a stylish patchwork denim cushion, or lounging in the shade of a tent?

Miranda Kerr jumped on the patchwork denim trend recently, though not in the way you might expect. Instead of rocking patchwork jeans, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel donned a pair of patchwork denim ankle boots by Louis Vuitton. She paired them with a quirky printed skirt and a sexy transparent top… but we almost think there’s a little too much going on in this look. Meanwhile, if you’re into patchwork denim, you might want to check out our new service.

It seems the entire world is on a quest to dress like Parisian style icons, chasing that effortless tomboy approach to feminine style made viral by modern stars like Clémence Poésy and Léa Seydoux. If you’re also looking to add a bit of French girl flare to your look, we’d recommend a browse through the fall 2014 collection of Laurence Doligé—a sportswear designer who has successfully combined effortless chambray with patchwork denim, peplum coats, and luxe slouchy knitwear into one offering of serious class. See the collection here, and check out our tips on dressing with je ne sais quoi below.
1. Mix dressy with casual. If you’re wearing a silk blouse, pair it with boyfriend jeans. A pair of tailored slacks go perfect with a crisp white tee. Roll up those sleeves and add some pearls!
2. Wear black and white. Sounds basic, and, well, it is. Try a white pair of jeans with a black knit sweater, tucked into the front. Add some gold cuff bracelets and a pair of easy flats. Done.
3. A simple frock does the job like nothing else. Whether it’s a button down cotton summer dress in a solid off-white hue or a pinstriped chambray cocktail number, less is more when you’re pulling off French-inspired style.
4. Find the perfect tailored jacket. No cutting corners on this one. There are few outfits that won’t be transformed into instant chic with the addition of a killer jacket. Pair it with skinnies and flats, belt it around the waist, and find the perfect clutch to carry.
5. Think beyond the skinny jean. French femmes know how to rock a pair of ultra wide leg pants. Pair wide leg jeans with a crop top and a long knit cardigan. A brimmed hat and some silver jewelry and you’re ready to hit the streets.

Florence Kane has a favorite pair of jeans, but they’re not your run of the mill raws or your classic dark wash skinnies. Florence calls them “Frankenstein” on account of them being made up of so many other pairs of jeans. These patchwork jeans have more character than anything we’ve seen in a long time, and we love the story behind them:
“someone sewed patch upon patch to get them in the wonderful state they’re in now. This person cut an entire swath – pocket included – off the rear of a pair of Wranglers and put it on the left front of these jeans; the pocket with a square outline faded in (wallet? cigarettes?). There are several stars of various sizes stitched on, triangles, an arrow, and regular old squares. There’s even a denim footprint on the left rear, with each “toe” perfectly placed.” (Jean Stories)
