Denim is totally having a moment. I mean, yes, you could say that denim has been having one long moment since the day it was first invented, but I’m hard-pressed to think of a time there was such an exciting variety of denim pieces available in so many cuts, colors, styles, and sizes. From pencil…

The Soapbox: Why Can’t Levi’s Get A Clue With Their Advertising?

Two years ago, Levi’s debuted their new Curve ID jeans by blasting our eyeballs with ads about their three different “slight curve,” “demi curve,” and “bold curve” shape versions.

Splurge Or Steal: Waxed Denim

I’ve never met a pair of leather leggings I didn’t like, but they are, shall we say, an investment piece. A soft, flattering, fitted pair can set you back like you wouldn’t believe, but they look so goooood. The newest trend that I can get behind is these coated skinny jeans, as seen on the…

Justin Timberlake’s Fashion Regrets Include Cornrows, Matching Denim

“God, I feel I’ve gone to therapy just to erase some of them. The cornrows I wore with ’N Sync. That was pretty bad. Britney [Spears] and I wore matching denim outfits [to the 2001 American Music Awards]. Yeah, another bad choice. I’d probably pay good money to get some of those pictures off the…

Ladies, don’t ever think guys don’t care about what you wear. When I asked my guy friends to give their opinions on a few lady-specific fashions, they were more than happy to offer their thoughts.

Do Not Want: 2-In-1 Jeans

This has happened to us before. When we were 6 years old. And did not understand how to wear clothing properly.

Now there’s a company out there making custom 2-in-1 jeans that take two back halves and sew them together so that your butt pockets become your front pockets. Edgy? Perhaps. But we’d…
