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.

16 Denim Must-Haves According to Vogue


A new year and a new denim closet revamp is in order, no? Vogue just released their first denim must-haves list of the year, featuring a shortlist of head-to-toe denim gets for under $500.  From denim shoes by Michael Kors, Alexandre Birman and SEE by Chloe, to a refreshing take on the jeans skirt by Scully Denim, we’re certain you’ll find some inspiration here.   We think 2012 is the year that denim detractors may just be swayed to slip on a pair of jeans.  Because, after all, Vogue certainly thinks jeans are lust-worthy.

Vogue selects denim must-haves under $300.

See by Chloe Summer of Feminine Jeans


With summer going official in just mere weeks, we welcome See by Chloe‘s Summer 2011 Lookbook of feminine and frilly separates.  From patchwork denim Boyfriend silhouettes to cuffed denim shorts which remind us of flirty bloomers; it’s not a far cry to think this collection—with splashes of primary color blocking—is hugely inspired by little girl’s clothes.  Make that little girl’s clothes with a grown-up’s sophistication.  We suspect Alexa Chung, the poster It Girl for “little girl chic,” is already so on board with that.  Equally girlie bib-front, puff-sleeved and bow-tied tops incorporating floral graphics add a joie de vivre sensibility to your summer wardrobe.  Are you getting inspired yet?


View the gallery for the full lookbook:

Gifts for Denim Lovers


There’s  just under a month left to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list, but if your loved ones are as crazy about denim as you are, you need look no further! We know what you’re thinking—it’s hard enough to find the perfect fit of jeans for yourself, so how could you buy them for someone else? But we’re one step ahead, with a less time-consuming alternative. After all, jeans are only one element of the wonderful world of denim…

1. For the DIY divas in your life (or anyone who can’t afford to drop lots of cash every time something trendy and fabulous hits the denim market), try this book! It’s the gift that’ll keep on giving until they can’t hold their scissors anymore. 99 Ways to Cut, Sew & Deck Out Your Denim, by Justina Blakeney, Ellen Schultz, and Faith Blakeney ($17) – buy it at Amazon.

2. A good gift isn’t just aesthetically pleasing these days, as you probably know from perusing other gift guides full of tech gadgets and time management tools. But we’re sure your efficient gift recipient will love this stylish, functional belt. It comes equipped loops for holding anything from eyebrow pencils to screwdrivers. See by Chlo? Pocket-detail denim belt ($150) – buy it at The Outnet.

3. A sense of humor is crucial when you can only afford a $1.00 gift, but as long as you make people laugh, no one’s going to blame you! This charming little pin will look great on bags, coats, or  guitar straps So hey, why not? Bean Forest “TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS” Pin ($1) – buy it at Bean Forest.

4. With the rise of Etsy.com and the DIY revolution, beautiful hand-made gifts are more accessible and affordable than ever. We found this classy shoulder bag and wish we could get one for everyone in the office! Hand-made Strapped Shoulder Bag in black denim ($75) – buy it at Definition of Self.

5. For the biker babe or rocker dude on your list, something a bit more bad-ass to make their season bright. These fingerless gloves are half leather, half distressed denim, and it’ll ensure no one thinks twice about messing around at the crazy, intoxicated New Year’s Eve bash. Maison Fabre Denim/Leather Fingerless Mittens ($133) – buy it at Saks Fifth Avenue.

6. No, that price is not a typo, and this gift is truly reserved for the most gung-ho of denim fanatics… or anyone looking to be schooled thoroughly on the entire industry from A to Z. If they want to know it all, this is the closest thing to denim university. The Denim Bible Jeans Encyclopedia II, by Sportswear International ($1,546) – buy it at Amazon.

7. A cute, versatile denim hat to cap off a perfect winter outfit (and keep someone’s head warm). The neutral gray color allows for mixing with any outwear they already have, and the very nice price will keep you as jolly as a Christmas elf. Calvin Klein Martial Cap ($25) – buy it at Calvin Klein.

8. An accessory to wrap around the neck, tie up like a turban, or employ in apartment decor, this Diesel scarf has a vintage charm with contemporary edge. They come in several other colors and designs. DIESEL 2-KRAFS Scarf & Tie ($ 60) – buy it at DIESEL.

9. If you prefer to be remembered fondly during the post-holiday couch potato TV marathon your best friend annually partakes in, perhaps something more suited to lounging is in order. American Denim Square Denim Pillow ($24) – buy it at Specialty Linens.
