We ladies really love to look fierce in our jeans, but sometimes, the fellas complain that our choices are, shall we say, unconventional. What’s wrong with some breezy drop-crotch jeans? Dontcha love our pyramid-studded denim cutoffs? People pay good money for strategically placed razor shreds in jeans. Still not buying it? We rounded up several jeans that we think The Man Repeller Leandra Medine could give the thumbs up to, but tell us: how far do you go to strike a fierce pose?
In a recent photo shoot for Australia’s RUSSH Magazine, model-muse Jessica Stam wears denim and couture all at once! Featuring a Bess denim vest, Grandma Takes a Trip jeans, Lover, plus international fashion brands, the photo shoot seems to say a bit about Australian fashion’s rebellious stance to stay away from the fashion bubble. Shot by photographer Will Davidson, it seems like the whirlwind of color and billowy fabrics in a juxtaposed image of luxury elegance-meets-punk could be a bit discombobulating; but, we believe the stylist chose her faded and bleached denim pieces as the real focal point on this photo shoot, anchored by the lovely Jessica.

Looking for a way to punctuate jeans other than the generic crop or cuffed hem? These skinnies were shredded to perfection, a few strands flying free, and cut just above the ankle so they’re not quite cropped, but short enough to give room to the epic shoes and (possibly proportion inspiring) bee tattoo. And by the way, isn’t that more refreshing than a butterfly? We thought so too.
