This spring, expect to see stylish people not only rocking colored jeans, but pastel snakeskin print jeans, thanks to TEXTILE Elizabeth & James. The denim-driven brand offshoot of the more runway-friendly Elizabeth & James fashion label is daring fashionistas to go boldly beyond solid neons (check out their pre-Spring neon capsule collection at Shopbop) and basic five-pocket jeans. Fancy a psychedelic kaleidoscope print? Last season’s nod to the ’70s continues somewhat; however, the collection has a larger ’80s fashion presence: skinny ankle jeans, pastel denim and a boyish denim overall. If you’re still in love with their bell bottom jeans, TEXTILE will have a juicier version to appease you. Check out the lookbook and take it all in.

One of the hottest and most wearable trend of the season is definitely the western-meets-bohemian look. So far we’ve shown you hot to rock it with bold prints and scantly denim shorts shorts, but now that it’s getting a bit more chilly we figure you might want to add a layer or two. We love this girls take on this trend, so we broke it down for you for some food for thought. Her double denim look gets a cozy revamp with a oversized chunky knit sweater thrown over. An on-trend floppy hat, worn in suede booties, and gold accessories add the perfect western flare without going overboard.

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen‘s more casual spinoff collection, TEXTILE Elizabeth & James, recently took a road trip to the California desert to shoot its first brand campaign, featuring pieces from its summer and fall 2011 collections. Inspired by a 1969 trip to Joshua Tree, California, Ashley and Mary-Kate packed up their team and drove to Palm Springs to produce a photo shoot using a variety of camera set ups to produce a collage effect. Produced in two parts, we get to feast our eyes on Textile by Elizabeth and James jeans, part one here. Just launched last spring, TEXTILE Elizabeth & James has generated a lot of buzz around this brand which features denim. Love this new collection as much as we do? Stay tuned for part two!
A few selections from the new collection is currently available, such as the Jimi Jean in lightning wash ($195) at Neiman Marcus online, and the Bleached Bianca Shirt ($175) at Net-a-Porter online. The rest, such as the Jimi Jean in midnight wash ($195) is available at Saks Fifth Avenue online and other high-end retailers from August 1.
