Here in NYC, we’re slowly beginning to daydream about the days where we don’t have to layer on three pairs of tights to leave the house, and while we specialize in expert denim repair, our readers know we love a stylish gaping hole in the knee of our jeans once in a while, too.
A Pair & A Spare recently ran a great post detailing some of their denim DIY distress experiments, using materials like sandpaper, tweezers, and a cheese grater. Check out the results, and try some of them for yourself: Techniques For Distressing Denim.

Lupita Nyong’o was snapped in Los Angeles at LAX in a pair of coated skinny jeans. She wore them with a casual combination: a hoodie and boots. We’re kind of in love with her, whether she’s wearing an epic ball gown on an awards ceremony red carpet or jeans and a hoodie. That’s called having style. Her exact jeans here are the DL1961 Emma Skinny Jeans in a coated finish (click through to grab a pair for yourself).

Pop quiz: did you get your perfect pair of black skinny jeans for fall yet? If not, check out one pair we’re really fond of right now. MC reviewed a pair of Jen7 skinny jeans in black to see how they held up during a busy day in NYC, and they passed the test. If you haven’t heard about the new bran Jen7 Jeans yet, you will soon. It’s a new line designed “by women, for women”, via 7 for All Mankind. Get the details on this pair, below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
My first thought was how versatile they are, being a pair of black skinny jeans and all. I loved how they fit with my favorite fall boots, and after pairing them with a ton of tops in my wardrobe, I feel confident I’ll be getting some good mileage out of them.
Where/when would you wear these?
These are the ideal wear-to-work jeans, because they’re both comfortable and sleek looking. You can dress them down for a chill day, add some killer heels for a night out, or pair them with a blazer for the office. Pieces that fit into my wardrobe need to pull their weight and function in more than one situation, and these jeans definitely pass the test.
How’s the fit?
Awesome! They didn’t stretch out or lose shape after a full day of wearing them on errand runs and meetings. I love how they look and feel, from waistband to ankle. One of the objectives of this line is to make women feel amazing in their jeans, and I think they’re on to something.

Jessica Alba was recently spotted running errands in a chic fall look, including a pair of Black Orchid grey skinny jeans and a neutral oatmeal knit top. She paired these items with white ankle boots and a black leather tote. The punchline? A super fresh pair of squared off shades. We’ve known for a while that J-Alb has mastered the feminine-luxe aesthetic without looking over done or forced, and she only seems to get more chic with age. Shop this look below.
