Denim Trend: Oxblood Is The It Color Of The Season

Straight off the runways, oxblood is the It Color of the season for just about anything, and we’re already seeing it as a trendy hue in jeans.  Oxblood is a deep, rich red hue that looks both elegant and rocker.  Just don’t overdo it.  And, if you’re not quite ready for oxblood jeans, we’ve compiled a collection of clothing and statement pieces that will indulge your oxblood craving during the cooler months.

We’ve Already Wish-Listed Rich & Skinny’s New Ombre Jeans For Spring

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.

Street Style: Blogger Jane Aldridge In Rich & Skinny Metallic Legacy Jeans

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.

Matt & Nat Denim Handbag & Summer Jeans

Miss the sale on Gilt Groupe?  Vegan and eco-friendly handbag brand Matt & Nat is having a hand bag sale on their own site and for about $115 or less, you can build upon your carefully cultivated hand bag collection (i.e. score a few denim bags!) without busting your budget.  Check out some of our favorite picks or view the gallery below for more styles.  And, once you receive your eco-conscious arm candy, how are you going to rock it?  We’ve got some ideas for you, too.

[nggallery id=176]

1. Narita in black denim (on sale for $110).

2. Portland in blue denim (on sale for $113).

3. Nico in light blue denim (on sale for $100).

4. Narita in blue denim (on sale for $110).

5. Portland in light blue (on sale for $113).

We think these Matt & Nat denim bags go well with white or pink jeans.  A light touch of double denim never hurt anybody.  Go uptown with an elegant blouse and heels or downtown with a funky shirt and edgy shoes.

1. Even a mustache is trendy. Wildfox Moustachio Shirt ($77) – buy it at Singer22.

2. The color on these denim shorts are so yummy, they dare you to sink your teeth into ’em. Rich & Skinny Sweet Lover Short in Strawberry Hills ($117) – buy it at REVOLVE Clothing.

3. Use your white denim pants as your style canvas. TEXTILE Elizabeth & James Bette Wide Leg Jeans ($235) – buy it at Shopbop.

4. These colorful shoes can go with just about anything. Zara Satin Sandal with Wooden Heel ($79.90) – buy it at Zara stores.

5. Stay cool in these super-short hot pants. Joe’s Jeans Jenny 3″ inseam denim shorts ($128) – buy it at Joe’s Jeans.

Wear It Now: Cropped Jeans

Celebrity Style: Kate Moss
Celebrity Style: Kate Moss by LolaHaze featuring James Perse t shirts
Items in this set:
JAMES PERSE WOMEN NARROW SCOOP NECK TEE In White, $50 | grey boyfriend blazer, $40
Siwy Hannah Slim Cropped Jean in Rain Wash AS SEEN ON KATE MOSS, $165
Dries Van Noten Ankle Boots with Python Heel, 250 GBP
Botkier – Aiden Satchel (Carmel) – Bags and Luggage, $600

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.

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?

Denim Deals: Planet LuLu Is Back!


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)
Denim, starting at $49. Snap-up a pair of Joe’s or a lovely pair of Paige Premium denim for under $69 dollarina’s!

*Become a Facebook Fan to grab the bonus coupon before you log on!

LOOK FOR: Cos­abella, Ella Moss, Splen­did, Joe’s, Paige, Chloe Dao, Young-??‹??‹Fabulous and Broke, Diane von Fursten­berg, Hardtail, Vince, Free Peo­ple, Joie, LaRok, Rich & Skinny, Bobi, 3 Dot, C&C, Design History, Amici, Alice & Olivia and more!

Denim Deals: Save up to 80% on Designer Jeans at SmartBargains



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.
