Denim Fashion: Hell’s Angels Biker Chicks

With all the craze surrounding the return to ’70s fashions, flared jeans and vintage denim, we thought we’d revisit an iconic look, made notorious by the Hell’s Angels biker bang from the 1960s, and solidified into pop culture thanks to a slew of biker genre movies such as Wild Angels (1966) and Easy Rider (1969).  We’ve seen plenty of how the Hell’s Angels gang members dressed back then, but little is known on how the ladies dressed.  To fit in, many ladies dressed the same as the men: black jeans, double denim looks with sleeves sometimes ripped off.  The notion of a biker chick has changed over the years and there are more style options: moto jeggings, Alexander McQueen skull jewelry, etc.  How would you rock your moto style?

Get The Look: Denim Shirt and a Space Dress

Style blogger Britney Nason (a.k.a. Disarming Darling) shows us how to wear a faded denim shirt with her colorful “space dress.”  Britney is a vintage clothing lover, so although her clothes are mostly new, she still manages to make everything look less commercial—like a very successful thrift shop expedition worn in her fun and effortless way.  The look is a bit unexpected and an interesting departure from the usual double denim or color-block pairings we’ve seen on street style blogs.  We love that the explosions of colors done up in this crab nebula-designed space dress don’t seem too… spacey.

Want to try Disarming Darling‘s unique vintage-boho chic look?  Make it your own with some personal jewelry and your favorite Wayfarers.  Note: she wore denim shorts underneath that dress and turned the dress into a tunic with a simple side knot.  Don’t forget the tribal cross-body bag to complete the outfit!

Vintage Denim Fashion in Kulte’s ‘Belle’ Campaign

Would it be much of a stretch if we said that French fashion label Kulte‘s new “Belle” campaign is a tip of the hat to the “Belle Epoque,” a period from the late 19th century to the period leading up to World War I?  The men’s campaign model, showcasing several denim pieces from the Autumn-Winter 2011 collection, channels Charlie Chaplin (who was wildly popular at the time) in some instances. Although each ensemble is decidedly modern, you get the definite feel that vintage inspirations had a major influence in this photoshoot (not unlike Kulte’s last ’60s-inspired campaign). This new season of offerings: denim outerwear, rugged slim jeans and a slim corduroy blazer and accessories prepares a would-be traveler or Outdoorsman for a frosty winter trek ahead.

Street Style: Black Denim Shorts & A Major Pop Of Color

Not sure how to hop on the color blocking trend? Add a major pop of color to any outfit with a bright blazer! Najela of Copenhagen has got the right idea throwing on this oversized vintage electric green blazer over a simple black tank top tucked into a pair of black high waisted Won Hundred denim shorts. Simplicity is always key when color blocking—there’s no need to overdue it with a slew of color. Try sticking to one focal bright garment, it can be just as effective especially for the fall season.

Street Style: Vintage Acid Wash Denim Jacket And Crochet Dress

When it comes to vintage-cool looks blogger Luanna of Peru has it all figured out. We crush over all of her retro-made-modern looks, but this one is definitely our favorite. Her oversized vintage acid wash denim jacket cuffed at the sleeve looks killer over this undeniably cute off-white crochet dress. We ain’t gonna lie—this perfect 80s meets 90s mix (which totally has us feeling a bit nostalgic) has us planning our next thrifting spree ASAP!

Flashback! Colored Denim In The ’90s

’90s trends are back in action, from later version of the hammer-pant to acid-wash and pastel hair dye. Flipping through old magazines from the ’90s is both a bizarre and exciting experience (unless you were just being born in 1996, and weren’t a tween in the age of some of TV’s best programs ever…). As sentimental as we wish we could get, one look at what fashion editorials in the ’90s were actually passing off as fashionable is enough to hit your gag reflex. Check out this mustard-yellow denim-on-eyelet-cotton ensemble, for instance. It means well, with its spring hues and the model’s confusing pose (laughing, itching—what is she doing?), but the end product looks more like a kid’s TV show host than street-savvy.

But then again, that more or less sums up the ’90s, doesn’t it? Stay tuned for more days-gone-by denim coverage! We’re more or less addicted to it.

Nasty Gal’s Newest Lookbook Brings Back Denim x Striped Socks

Vintage inspired fashion site Nasty Gal just produced a lookbook entitled “Pump Up the Jam” to show us how we can work the denim jacket day and night, even if we’re doing nothing but hanging out at a friend’s house all weekend. Some images channel a bit of Terry Richardson/American Apparel in composition, but without the full-frontal poses. Do you dig the calf-high gym socks? Where else can you be yourself and rock those orange platform flats than at your boyfriend’s house?

Nasty Gal shows us how to work the denim jacket in their latest lookbook, "Pump Up the Jam."

Whether you’re waiting for the rest of the band to show up (we see hints that said boyfriend is in a band), or just snapping photos before heading out, Nasty Gal seems to have captured a moment in time when we can express ourselves freely through fashion. More images at the Nasty Gal blog, or go to Nasty Gal online to shop.
