Spring Trend: Embellished Jeans


Trend alert! Just having a bit of interesting distressing or a cool wash isn’t cutting it for the fashion crowd when it comes to spring denim. Embellished jeans are a hot item right now, and the interpretations are vast: sequins, chains, crystals, patches and more. Check out some of the coolest over at Elle, and then grab the contents of your junk drawer for an on-trend DIY project.

The Perfect Way To Cuff Your Jeans


Spring is coming, which means it’s almost ankle-baring season! We can’t stress how important it is to have the perfect cuff at the bottom of your jeans. We even made a denim-cuffing video for you a few years back. But we could all brush up a bit on this warm weather skill, so we’re looking to Madewell to set the record straight.

“There’s an art to this relaxed cuff thing, so we asked our denim team to explain how to get our roll on, so to speak.

1. Start with gently wrinkled denim, which holds its shape better than an ironed-flat pair. (It’s the same idea as unwashed, next-day hair being better at holding a curl.)

2. Depending on how much skin you’d like to show, fold the jeans up once, approximately two inches. Make sure this cuff is a bit larger than your ideal final roll—the extra fabric keeps the look loose, rather than starched and precise (à la Happy Days).

3. For your last and final move, gently roll the jeans another time and—attention, please—lightly tug the cuff downward. This creates an anchor effect so that the jeans hang stylishly straight. Done and done.” (Source)

Take A Dreamy Oceanside Stroll With DL1961 Premium Denim


DL1961 Premium Denim recently released its Spring/Summer 2014 marketing campaign, meaning anyone who wasn’t already staring out their NYC office window at the falling snow, dreaming of summer, will now proceed to do exactly that. The new campaign features a serene and ethereal beach photo session, exploring a range of expressive poses. Shot by Boo George, the release pays homage to the lazy New York summer. Some shots remind us of romantic summer films, and honestly, we can’t stop playing this one over and over in our heads.

DL1961’s latest offerings are designed using technologically-advanced, lightweight denim fabrics with immaculate cut and sew detailing, so in addition to longing for beach weather, we’re craving a pair of these jeans too. See the full campaign below.
