Truth’s out: Ombre is one thing we haven’t gotten sick of yet. We still love ombre hair, dip-dye bohemian skirts, two-toned bleached out workshirts, and denim like this: Rich & Skinny‘s new ombre colored skinny. Consider this at the top of our wishlist. The rest of the lookbook isn’t far behind, with super-pretty pastel colors and flirty styles that the ladies of DT can’t wait to try on. See our favorite looks below.

Jane Aldridge of fashion blog Sea Of Shoes has managed to keep a consistent level of great style and exciting product flowing in her blog since her rise to blogger stardom, and while her obsessions seem to be vintage clothing and (obviously) shoes, she has a keen eye for amazing jeans. Here she pairs Rich & Skinny‘s coated metallic Legacy Jean ($187—grab a pair here) with a Nordic sweater and hooded faux-fur trimmed jacket. Her Proenza boots sort of put the cherry on top of this outfit, but those on a budget, we love these black bootie heels as a substitute.

Cropped jeans have traditionally been the staple denim fixture for fair weather days, especially in the summer. I mean, why would you wear cropped jeans when it’s probably snowing, raining or typhooning outside your window? Is there such a thing as ankle frostbite?
As we experience the last weeks of winter, there’s no time like the present for breaking into your spring denim reserve to lay out your month’s worth of cropped looks. Work your Ankle and Capri style jeans. I don’t recommend Clamdiggers or Bermudas, as they’re just too short.
Alexander McQueen Cutout Leather ankle boots, available at Net-a-Porter.
And this is why we wear platform booties and heels. They are your new best accessory. I love how your jeans look when they meet with your booties, above the ankles!
On the short side? Wear your petite jeans or roll up your denim. Rock the platforms. The look balances out your legs and creates an elongated illusion. Fashion can be functional, contrary to traditional belief.
7 For All Mankind Gwenevere Crop Skinny Jeans, available at Shopbop.
Rich & Skinny White Skinny Flood Crop Jeans, available at SmartBargains.
J BRAND Seven Eighths Low Rise Cropped Pencil Leg, available at Revolve Clothing.
The only dilemma you’ll find is whether you are showing off your cropped jeans look or your platform booties look. Oh, but, do you really care?

Remember Planet LuLu? I do. I went to my first sample sales at Planet LuLu in downtown L.A.’s Cooper Building eons ago. It was probably in 2000, and I still have that Wendy Hil suede leather jacket I snagged for $40 to remember it by. Ah, the sweet memories.
Planet LuLu was also the first (like the Web site dictates) to launch an online member’s only sample sales site. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. But, they sort of disappeared (sniff, sniff). But, now, they’re back, and they’re ready to rock our socks off.
Opens December 3rd at 7PM (EST)

Oh, I didn’t want to tell anybody about this sale; but, alas, duty calls. My conscience told me that it would be a shame to not share the denim love with the rest of you out there who could score some AG jeans, Earnest Sewn, Hudson, Paige Premium Denim, Rich & Skinny, Taverniti, and a bunch of other designer jeans for under $100. Better hurry though. Many sizes are selling out. By the way, if you sign up for their news alerts, you get free shipping.
