It’s probably our chilliest spring in years here in NYC, which raises the question of whether to dress for mid-day sun and heat, or morning/evening cool breezes and shade. A happy medium is a simple look pairing spring floral print jeans with a knit top and a black blazer, allowing you to remove layers and add them again as needed. Le Blog de Betty has always been a great source of layering inspiration, and this floral denim jeans look is now exception. Get this functional and stylish spring look below.
Ombre jeans are the perfect answer to your spring style dilemma: how do I update my look? Without going the way of intense patterns or neon hues, you can give your denim collection an update by adding a pair of ombre gradient jeans, like this pair of high-rise jeans pictured on street style blogger Katrina Bay of Pumps & Kicks below. Paired with a simple short sleeved top and a brimmed hat, it’s an instant casual-cool look you can wear from day to night effortlessly.

Ladies and gents, MC has a new favorite pair of jeans. The latest offerings from Williamsburg Garment Company—remember when Renee reviewed their skinny jeans as a day-to-night staple?—include a medium-wash stretch denim high-waisted skinny for women. These jeans get the high score for holding flawless shape a full day of flea market prowling and a full night of dancing. They also possess the eternally sought-after slimming effect and cool details for denim-geeks to gawk at.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
It was “Yesssss. Come to mama.” I also noticed the well proportioned back pockets (pocket size can really wreak havoc on a gal’s attempts to appear slimmer) and the cool side pocket stitching detail when I looked in the mirror. I love subtle design points that set a pair of jeans apart.
Where/when would you wear these?
I wore them to the flea market and strolling around Brooklyn, to brunch, to an insane all night dance party… no stretch or sag in the fabric. They looked and felt great. I’d wear these anywhere. I expect to get a lot of miles out of them this spring.
How’s the fit?
Love the high-rise, love the tight fit around the hips/behind, and knees. They have enough stretch for comfort but they still feel like denim, which is rare with women’s jeans. Too often it’s a free-for-all spandex blend jegging party. It’s hard to find the right balance. Aside from the feel of the fit, I was told they look great but friends and strangers while wearing them, so that probably counts for something.

We dropped in the American Eagle & Aerie fall 2013 preview yesterday for a pastry and some AM fashion-gazing. The ever-expanding line has amp’d up selection in both the men’s and women’s departments. We were especially delighted to see a carefully played bohemian influence in the styling of chic denim separates, flirty scarves, and gorgeous jewelry. This season we’re loving the returning Artist fit jean for women who want to edge towards flare leg while keeping it chic. Check out the full preview below!

Katy Perry was photographed visiting poverty-stricken children in Madagascar recently as part of a UNICEF initiative. ”In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life—nutrition, sanitation and protection against rape and abuse—which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide,” Perry said in a statement. She wore a pair of Black Orchid Denim’s Black Jewel Tencel Skinny floral jeans in California Raspberry.
