From fits to colors, Goldsign is all about variety this spring. And with so many things to choose from it’s definitely of those collections that is a fashionista’s wardrobe dream come true! You can pick from flirty wide leg denim (we’re totally crushing over the pair in aqua—amazing!) to on-trend supper slim 50s cropped styles. We love how the styling was kept casually sexy and effortlessly simple with easy to wear tees and tanks and red lips for the perfect hint of girly flare.
Rachel Zoe was seen strolling (and shopping, obviously) wearing Level 99 Storm Wide Leg. She paired her denim with an oversize black long sleeved pocket tee, big shades, a great straw hat (summer staple!) and a super chunky choker necklace. We adore accessorizing a simple outfit to bring it into eccentric territory. What else does this wonder woman of style accessorize? Her newborn baby was wrapped in a Missoni blanket, and you can’t really get any more stylish than that. Despite her otherwise awesome style… we think she could use some hemming from Denim Therapy.

It’s safe to say that by now we’re all in the-know about the comeback of 70s fashion, especially when it comes to the wide-leg denim trend. Clearly we’re into it, but we’re not going to lie—we totally wish it would have come back with a bit more edge. So when we came across this killer editorial in the June 2011 edition of Style Singapore featuring some amazing denim looks with true 70s glam rock cred we were totally hyped to say the least. Modernized to perfection yet keeping with the drama that was 70s glam this has totally satisfied our fashion cravings!

Now, I know that I’ve made comments about how too many designers have taken influence from the senventies lately, but that’s because they have! Everyone from Dries Van Noten, Derek Lam, and Elie Tahari has drawn inspiration from the era. Some good, some bad, and some too literal. But I have to say that one thing did stay consistent collection to collectino: the fresh yet old-school vibe of the wide-leg trouser.
With that said, move over skinny jeans, there’s a new look in town and it isn’t skin tight!

Skinnies have dominated the fashion world for what seems like forever, so in true fashion fashion there was bound to be a change. I think that we can all agree the transition started with the introduction of the boyfriend jean and then the harem pant, which gave way to a more relaxed and wider-set silhouette. But let’s be honest, everyone knows that they–as well as the skinny–are not always the most flattering.
So, what better timing for the come-back of the wide-leg trouser, right? Unlike the more slouchy look of the harem pant and the overall baggy aesthetic of the boyfriend jean, the wide-leg has a more streamlined and sophisticated look, not to mention that it flatters a lot more different body types. The higher rise helps to define the waist while the wide cut elongates the legs, making for a really graceful but sexy silhouette.
Now I’m not saying that this doesn’t have the potential to go completely wrong. I mean, too much of anything can result in some pretty bad looks. But done in a clean, and–as I always say–simple yet effective way the wide-leg has the potentiality of being the next ‘must have’ denim style.
The question is, are you ready to ditch your skin tight companions? What do you think? Is it really time to say goodbye to your skinnies?
