Flashback! Thai Brand Sretsis Acid Wash Jeggings


Faux-jeans are all the rage right now, from the Jeanpants Underwear to the tirelss debate as to whether jeggings should be outlawed. But it’s not exactly a new craze. A scan from an old issue of NYLON magazine reminds us that jeggings were raising eyebrows years before Conan O’Brien pulled on a pair and made his studio audience scream. Thai brand Sretsis released these vibrant short & full-pant jeggings in time for the August 2009 issue. Covered in faux-zippers, pockets, stitching and cuffs, the convincing facade brought some colorful rock’n'roll kick to the playing field. The brand’s current collection is comprised mostly of colorful, free-spirited sportswear that leans towards resort. But we can’t say we’d mind if they slipped back into faux-jeans territory again…

A Leggy Summer: The Short of It

MIKE & CHRIS Ritter Japanese Denim Cargo Micro Short. Available at SINGER22.


Whoever told you that you can’t and shouldn’t be wearing shorts this summer must live in Siberia or something.  If you’re wise about it, anybody can wear denim shorts at any age, and not look silly.  Remember: 50 is the new 40; 40 is the new 30; and so on.  With some proper preparations, you’ll be able to tastefully rock your denim look and rack up style points from your peers. Remember, if you have bumps and veins you’d rather hide, go longer with the denim. Don’t try to hide them with stockings or leggings.

Try These Tips:

1) Groom your legs: shave, exfoliate, lubricate.  Be sure to apply moisturizer on your legs immediately after patting them dry with a towel.  It helps if you’re just coming out of a mild to hot shower.  This will help with absorption.

2) Fake bake, if necessary.  If not, try rubbing some baby oil down the front of your legs (from below the knees down to just above the feet).  Carefully apply concealer (yes, makeup!) on bruises and scabs.

3) If all else fails, get your legs groomed professionally, and don’t forget the pedicure!  Select a light color, which makes your feet appear tanner.  Neutral, muted tones does the trick.

4) Pair your denim shorts with some fantastic pair of shoes.
