Jean Queens: A Look At Celebrity Denim


From the time denim hit the market as functional, industrial uniforms to the moment skinny jeans became a staple in every woman’s closet, denim has always been a must-have. No closet is complete without a pair of worn-in, comfy boyfriend jeans — nor a pair of fierce dark wash jeans for days when you want to turn heads and take numbers. But it’s the celebrity denim culture that also fuels our love of amazing jeans. Seeing women like Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Kate Upton rocking our favorite brands in new and exciting (and sometimes totally off-duty) ways keeps us craving denim in our wardrobes. Harpers Bazaar takes a look at some of the ultimate jean queens of our current culture.

Taylor Swift was recently spotted strolling in New York wearing a pair of Black Orchid Black Jewel Jeggings in Malaga Wine (grab a similar pair of skinnies here). Colored skinny jeans are one of our favorite picks for transitional dressing between seasons, and Taylor nailed this lok wtith a neutral peak coat, a simple chic bag, and plaid scarf. She must know she looks good, too — she looks pretty content.

More On Spandex Denim & The American Dollar


We posted a few weeks ago about the way skinny jeans almost ruined the American dollar—basically because US currency was being printed on special paper made largely from denim scraps  provided by the denim industry, until spandex jeans became widely popular and the quality of denim scraps themselves with compromised in an epic way. Glamour posted a write-up on this same predicament, with an inside look at the way spandex denim changed …well, everything.

“Did you know that for the longest time—since the 1800s, in fact—U.S. dollars have been printed on a cotton-paper blend supplied by Crane—yes, the stationer? And, for the longest time, since the 1800s, Crane & Co. has gotten 30 percent of its cotton in the form of denim scraps from the garment industry!

But then, in the ’90s and ’00s, something happened in fashion that changed the money-making business forever. That something was spandex—and it started to make its way into nearly all mass-produced jeans in the United States.” (Read more)

Citizens of Humanity Summer 2014 Lookbook


Citizens of Humanity released their summer 2014 lookbook, featuring a range of denims from light wash to black, with strategic-yet-natural looking distressing. The clothing is adequately laid back with a hint of rock’n'roll. Their new fit, the Emerson, is the star of the show: a slim fit boyfriend jean that is destined to be the ultimate style staple this season. We love to see styles that are easy to wear and pair with things we already have in our closets. Less is more in the summer, and CoH totally gets it.

Did Skinny Jeans Almost Ruin America’s Currency System?


Ecouterre published an eye-opening article recently regarding one of our own favorite wardrobe staples: skinny jeans. But the eco-focused website didn’t rave about how versatile they are or how many printed options are available for spring. They accused skinny jeans of nearly wrecking America’s currency system:

In the late 1800s, when a single currency system was established, the bills were sustainably produced from waste fabric from the fashion industry. That’s right: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were printed on fibers processed from unwanted materials, entirely compiled from recycled scraps. But a recent article published over at the Washington Post last month sheds light on how the fashion world’s love of figure-hugging jeans since the ’90’s has wreaked havoc on currency production, tainting the waste scraps with spandex and rendering them useless.
