4 Elevated Legging Outfits for When You Can’t Face the Idea of Jeans

I'm not sure how it happened exactly, but somewhere along the lines, leggings developed somewhat of a bad reputation. A few years ago, the item was relegated to workout looks only, not to be worn outside the context of gym gear or errand running. However, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is that comfort is key, and if leggings are elevated enough to appear on a Chanel runway, they are certainly polished enough for our everyday attire. If you're yet to embrace leggings outside the realm of athleisure, may I turn your attention to Instagram, where influencers are managing to incorporate the item in several stylish looks?From pairing leggings alongside a boxy blazer and belt to wearing them with a cosy shacket and knee-high boots, there are a number of ways the comfy style can feel relev...

3 Ways We’re All Going to Wear Jeans in 2021

I’m not buying it. Despite however many memes I see on Instagram about never wearing jeans again, I know fashion better, and I know that jeans, like all the fancy dresses we're not wearing right now, aren’t suddenly going to disappear overnight. Sure, we’re having quite the flirtation with cosy joggers and any other trousers that are stretchy in the waist department, but there are certain parts of our wardrobes that unite us, and denim is one of them. I reached out to two of my favourite places that do denim—7 For All Mankind and & Other Stories—to tell me what jeans trends we can expect to see in 2021.While the former is a luxury denim brand and the latter a high-street store that does more than jeans, I wanted to get a good overview of what the customer is going to want next year ...

Mary-Kate Just Wore Skinny Jeans and Boots in the Most Olsen Way

While celebrities like Rihanna and Bella Hadid change up their style on a near-daily basis, others are a bit more predictable, sartorially speaking. They're the ones who have a signature style that's incredibly consistent and recognizable. At the top of this list is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.What can you count on from them fashion-wise? Baggy shapes, muted colours, and pared-down styles have been Olsen trademarks for years, and we certainly can't fault them for having a go-to uniform. If it's too body skimming, overly embellished, or flashy in any way, they probably won't be wearing it—which brings me to the most recent photo of Mary-Kate in New York City. Oversize maxi coat? Slouchy beanie? Basic black boots? Check, check, and check. Scroll down to see how she styles jeans with boots ...

These Iconic $80 Jeans Have Been My Go-To Pair For Over a Decade

I am of the mind that there are few things more demoralizing than trying on jeans. I would rather try on swimsuits, that's how much I detest the experience. So when I find a pair I like, I cling to them, wearing them over and over again until they can't even be cut into jean shorts (ed. note: don't cut your jeans into jean shorts). While denim trends have ebbed and flowed over the years, I'm always going to be partial to a high-rise skinny jean. To me, it's like a great white t-shirt or little black dress. It never goes out of style and works with pretty much any outfit. I'd say about 90 percent of the jeans I own are high-rise skinny jeans, and for years, I've known that I can rely on my go-to pair, the Gap High Rise True Skinny Jeans ($80). Why do I love these jeans so much? They are...

I Spent all Day Sitting in These $38 Jeans – And Look Mom, No Hip Marks!

Whenever summer wraps I always find myself ready to shop for new jeans, and there are a number of important things I routinely look for: style, versatility, and comfort. I like my jeans to have some modern flair to them, like an of-the-moment hem or wash. This helps it stand apart in my closet from other denim. Versatility is important because I want to wear them with cozy sweaters, casual graphic t-shirts, and even blazers. When it comes to comfortable clothing, I'm only buying cozy pieces right now. Since jeans aren't always all-day comfortable, I knew I had my work cut out for me. I ended up buying these High-Waisted Flare Black Cut-Off Ankle Jeans ($40) earlier this month and was surprised at how perfect they were. I loved the subtle kick flare details (modern touch!), and how good ...

Von Dutch Is Staging a Comeback, and It Starts With These Revived Jeans From 2005

Everything old is new again - and we mean everything. Following the recent return of similarly flashy 2000s brands like Kangol and Juicy Couture (albeit via collaborations and capsule collections), Von Dutch is too making a comeback. Though the brand has quietly been stocking its site with nostalgic garb for some time, it's now plotting a transition into the luxury market under the name Von Dutch Paris. The plan begins with jeans: To kick things off, Von Dutch has rereleased two flared, low-rise pairs that haven't been sold since 2005. Then, later this fall, Von Dutch plans to release a premium denim collection with prices starting at $500. Eventually, there will also be footwear, outerwear, and accessories at a similarly high price point. Overseeing it all is Creative Director Earl Pic...

5 Pairs of Autumn Boots That Always Look Good With Jeans

Like salt and pepper and Sonny and Cher, jeans-and-boots are one of those pairings that were simply made to be together. Whether you're a flares fanatic or dark denim devotee, there's a boot trend that will complement your jean style of choice, and now that the autumnal weather is starting to creep in, it's the perfect time to work out what your jeans-and-boots persona will be for 2020. When looking for a new pair of autumn boots, our recommendation would be opt for a style that you know will go with a wide range of denim trends. Just look at the heeled, knee-high boot: It might seem like a tricky style, but in fact it'll look just as good under wide leg jeans as it will over skinnys. Or even this season's combat style will transition from cropped denim to a straight leg fit with ease. ...
