Those of you who have fallen in love with the peplum trend and simply can’t get enough of this sophisticated, feminine silhouette is in for a treat: you can wear it with jeans. Absolutely! We recommend pairing a peplum top with a pair of skinny jeans and heels. This will give you that slim and curvy look that is so on trend right now. We think it has something to do with It Girl Victoria Beckham‘s trend-influencing style: peplum dresses and classy pencil skirts. We’ve pulled together some great pieces and a few jeans (of course) to help you get that look. Are you going to give it a go?

Here at Denim Therapy, we love to see super moms such as Victoria Beckham, create and conquer it all before dinner time. Case in point, Ms. Beckham has successfully managed to change a couple of diapers, cook dinner for her hunk of a husband Mr. Beckham, all while conquering the fashion world one design at a time. Cleverly and might we say extremely business savvy, Ms. Beckham has maintained the upkeep of her luxury denim brand, Victoria Beckham Denim, and for that we salute her. This upcoming fall/winter season, the signature skinnies and cropped skinnies are joined by a clean bootcut and a slim boyfriend. Colors are also muted with aubergine, lavendar and green, and detailing such as zips and insert panels are kept subtle. If this doesn’t speak women power in all volumes we don’t know what else will.

Hollywood is experiencing a baby boom. We can’t name all the celebrity moms right now, because there are just too many this year! We did, however, pick out several stylish moms from the past year to present, for their daring denim looks that ranged from barely pregnant to “ready to pop.” Who rocked their celebrity mom look the best? Plus, we’ve provided pointers on how to extend the wear of your jeans from baby bump to the last weeks of pregnancy.
MATERNITY JEANS, FOUR STYLES
1. If you’re still in love with skinny jeans like veteran mom Victoria Beckham, then you won’t have to miss out: this stretchy maternity version with full-belly support keeps your denim in place. A blazer with fitted sleeves adds a slimming and polished touch. AG Jeans Secret Fit Belly™ skinny jeans ($165) – buy it at Destination Maternity.
2. A low rise jean with a belly band provides comfort and support, which you’ll need for the latter months. Paired with a fluid boxy tee, and you’ll be supermodel chic like Gisele in an instant! True Religion ‘Billy’ maternity straight leg jeans ($248) – buy it at Sierra Lane Maternity.
3. Baby it’s hot outside! First time moms-to-be Kimberly Stewart and Natalie Portman stay cool and breezy in their denim shorts. All you need is a tank top and a sheer Winter Kate cover up for that festival chic look. Joe’s Jeans Secret Fit Belly™ 5 pocket maternity shorts ($125) – buy it at Destination Maternity.
4. Jessica Alba and Kate Hudson like their wide leg jeans, and you will, too, with discreet side elastic panels.

Still having a hard time finding the right pair of maternity jeans? For many women, it is still possible to wear regular jeans—particularly very low rise jeans—through the second trimester, as long as they’re still comfortable. After that, consider the Maternity Service by Denim Therapy ($60): turn your jeans into the perfect maternity jeans!
It’s a round-trip package: once the baby is born, Denim Therapy can turn your jeans back to the way they were. Learn more about the Denim Therapy Maternity Service.

Ever since I first saw the biker inspired bleached denim on the runway of Balmain, I knew this trend was going to be a hit, but I didn’t think it would hold up for so long. Everyone from Victoria Beckham to BeyoncA© have rocked this look and so can you. Copy this look by D.I.Y. and revive the 80s in your wardrobe with homage to the late legendary Michael Jackson by pairing it up with a band inspired jacket (a la Balmain).
D.I.Y. instructions to create your own Tie-Dye/Bleached Jeans
(Source – Life & Style):
Tools needed: Bleach, bucket, sponge, rubber gloves, newspaper
Step 1: Assemble tools and pour bleach into bucket.
Step 2: Stuff jeans with newspaper to keep bleach from seeping through to the other side.
Step 3: Using a sponge, dab and drip bleach onto jeans. Hang to dry for an hour . Wash and dry.
Step 4: Reapply bleach with sponge in additional areas. Hang to dry for three hours. Wash and dry again.
Tip: Make sure to choose a well-ventilated area, like a porch or driveway, because bleach gives off noxious fumes.
