Tag: Denim Trends
The Style: Pastel denim.
The Style: Light denim.
The Why: Pale jeans are a fresh, wearable alternative to classic indigo.
How To Wear: Look for jeans that have an overall faded look, instead of patchy washed out areas. You want to avoid lighter spots that could make areas like the hips, thighs, or butt appear bigger. Pair with darker pieces like a black tee, dark indigo denim shirt and… read more »
Coated jeans: I’m a fan. Super sexy, surprisingly wearable, and just a tad more special than those plain old blue jeans. I own them in solid colors as well as in a metallic silver, and love that they look like leather pants without the price tag. I pair them with a blazer and wear them to the office for day, then add heels for a night. One thing to note is that… read more »
The corduroy, that perennial staple hailing from our childhood, is back once again, folks. Just in time, too, as cords provide the comfort, warmth and, of course, style so many of us are desperate for come January. We are obsessed with how surprisingly versatile they are, too, feeling just as fresh paired with a tucked-in buttondown or a blazer at the office as… read more »
You could rock a sexy dress for New Year’s, but maybe you are more of a jeans and tee kind of gal. (Like, ahem, me.) If so, a few tips to keep in mind when getting dressed for the big night.
The Fit: It’s important to find the right pair of jeans for your body shape and style. The styles to shop for this holiday season are the skinny, the legging, the… read more »
Oh, Cyber Monday. An online extravaganza of shopping, discounts and deals. A perfect excuse for catching up on holiday shopping, and for picking up a thing or two for your wardrobe, without ever leaving your desk. On my to-buy list this afternoon? A pair of dressed-up jeans that will take me from desk to dinner all December long. Yes, I buy my jeans online, and… read more »
Black jeans may be a wardrobe staple year round, but, come the holiday season, they become a flat-out necessity. (For us, anyway.) You can wear ‘em casually to the office with a pair of flats, and then throw on a pair of heels and be ready for that party after work. And there are so many types of black jeans to choose from these days: Basic black, coated, with… read more »
Fall is here, winter is coming: It’s officially time to break out our favorite boots. Here, my recommendations for how best to style your jeans with boots. (Hint: You can’t go wrong with a skinny style.)
Ankle Boots Wear this season’s It Boot with a cropped jean, or a skinny style with a more tapered ankle. For a laid back but chic look, try loosely cuffing the… read more »
Trade shows, that is. Trade shows put buyers and designers in the same room (or, more accurately, convention center). Here, our denim buyer Jennifer gives an hour-by-hour account of what, exactly, happens at one of these. Hint: A lot.
6:30 am Awake, rise and prep for the day: Yoga stretches and meditation in the room.
7:00 am H2O and coffee. As a return buyer for… read more »
...because as much as I live in my beloved blues, I am ready for a fresh take on denim for fall. And this colored denim, this gloriously printed colored denim, is just the ticket. I just know that these teal python-print skinnies will take my blazer-and-jeans combo to the next level at the office, and I firmly believe that the croc print in rust will be my… read more »
The clothes, as they say, make the man. This fall, menswear trends reinterpret classic masculine fabrics like flannel, corduroy and tweed into modern trousers, jackets and accessories. Chunky wool is back for crewneck and cardigan sweaters. Mirroring the seasonal change, brooding hues of olive, burgundy, indigo, tan and brown offer refreshing contrast from summer’s… read more »
Early in the morning, just as the sun rises, a quiet breeze with a subtle bite eases over East Coast seaside towns. Although it quickly gives in to high summer’s penetrating rays, it is nonetheless a hint of the coming harvest season.
As one might suspect, it takes a lot of work to orchestrate the denim fashion events we do over at MYHABIT. Case in point? The Denim Shop. From the initial brainstorming process to the final shoot day, our various teams (design, editorial, buying) are in constant contact with one another, trying to pull off some version of the vision in our heads. And it is such a… read more »
There isn’t a single editor or buyer at MYHABIT who doesn’t count WhoWhatWear as one of their go-to style resources, and to say we are thrilled to team up with the addictive online fashion magazine for The Denim Shop (launching today) is a wee bit of an understatement. And so, ever the opportunists, we decided to grill the founders, Hillary Kerr and Katherine… read more »
Is there a staple in your closet more beloved than those cutoffs you made from an old pair of jeans years ago, and have worn faithfully summer after summer since? Thought not. And so, in the spirit of ensuring everybody has at least one such pair of shorts in their arsenal, we enlisted designer David Mathey of MYHABIT denim favorite Rockstar to give us a few… read more »
What better way to kick off a Monday than to fill that noggin of yours with some rather random, little known facts about denim? Here, what you didn’t know you didn’t know about those beloved blues.
1. Over 200 pairs of jeans can be made from a single, 500-pound bale of cotton.
2. It takes just over two pounds of cotton to make a single pair of jeans.
3. Jeans… read more »
The only thing more quintessentially American than a pair of jeans might be the tradition behind celebrating the Fourth of July. And growing up on a dairy farm in Washington state is as about quintessentially American as I imagine it gets. Each year on the Fourth, my family would gather at our flower-filled farm. Barbeque. Play in the pool. Take the jet skis out to… read more »
The month of June, as we all know, is notorious for being sunny and 80 degrees one day, and rainy and 62 the next. My solution over the past few weeks? Cropped jeans. The in-between jean. Not only are they super chic with everything from an oversized buttondown to a striped tee, but that extra two inches of ankle somehow makes all the difference in terms of never… read more »
Then: Flare jeans at their purest, as evidenced by MYHABIT editor Nicole’s parents as college students in 1975. Note: The old school blue of the denim. The perfect proportion of the flare itself - not too wide, not too slim. The super-casual nature of the denim look as a whole. That the jeans the two are wearing are nearly identical. (Ha. Love.)
Now: The flare… read more »
Ah, jeans. So simple a garment, yet so complex. Ever consider, for instance, the insight and talent that goes into designing a single, well-fitting pair? I have, and I went to one my favorite denim labels to get the scoop. Enter Benjamin Talley Smith, creative director at denim label Earnest Sewn, who oh-so-nicely opened up to us about the life that comes with… read more »
Fashion week has come and gone, but what the whole shebang meant likely has some fellas (and ladies) scratching their heads. Enter Raja, our dear and oh-so stylish men’s buyer, who, after dutifully attending show after show, was somehow able to sum up it all up for us in two words: Layering. And: Color. Some elaboration below.
I came (or went, rather), I saw, I conquered – two of the fashion industry’s biggest trade shows, that is. Traveling so much made for quite the busy February, but I love nothing more than going out in the market to see what we will all be wearing come fall. And the results?
The most-asked question I get as a denim buyer, hands down, is how to go about buying jeans. How on earth, everyone wants to know, do you find a pair that will look good? How do you know what style to try on? What size do you even start with? What brands do you consider? And so on. The bad news is there is no perfect formula. What I do know, however, is what to… read more »
Denim is, and always been, a way of life for me—literally. My family owns a dairy farm in Washington State, and my first pair of jeans was a pair of Osh Kosh denim overalls. Denim is true work wear on a farm, and so I lived in my Levis, wore out my Wranglers. It’s kind of funny: The wear and tear that people pay big bucks for in denim today was obtained… read more »
