J.Lo Goes Denim Happy

Sure, jumpsuits are really hot and trendy right now, but didn’t anyone tell Jennifer Lopez that all-denim outfits are a tad too much? The diva took her onesie out on the town for a Miami Dolphins game on Sunday, and while you’re judging, please scan down her outfit to check out the peep-toe pumps, in the exact same shade as her denim get-up. Perfect attire for an afternoon at a football game, isn’t it? Keep reading »

Jeans To Help (Or Hide) Your Holiday Food Baby

Everyone over does it during the holidays, so no judgments when you walk away from the table suddenly looking like you’re three months pregnant with a food baby. So now more than ever is the time to add jeans with an elastic feature to help your Christmas pig-outs. The LA Times got into some tummy-tucking jeans, and turns out there are quite a few options out there. Like, for example, M’Chic denim (right), which includes a Spanx-like slimming panel to suck in your holiday spare tire.

Only thing is, wouldn’t wearing what’s essentially a girdle make a full belly feel worse? We say, take to the maternity jeans—like the elastic-waisted mom-to-be model from Citizens—and let it all hang out. Or just go for some Santa pants. [LA Times] Keep reading »

International Fashplomacy: Noko Jeans From North Korea

These days, starting a denim line seems just about as formulaic as making a Duncan Hines cake: get some organic cotton, mix in a celeb name, slap on a pricey label, and voilà! That’s not quite the case with Jacob Åström, Tor Rauden Källstigen and Jakob Ohlsson, who decided to go the hard way by starting their jeans line in the least likely of all places—North Korea. According to Fashion Week Daily, the three Swedes “stumbled upon North Korea’s new website, which called for new businesses from battleship building to potato farming.” Random! And yet completely cool that a fashion label would want to really think outside the box and draw inspiration from somewhere totally new. Here’s how they pulled it off. Keep reading »

How Many Pairs Of Jeans Do You Own?

Breaking news: Tommy Hilfiger is giving his two cents about the amount of jeans a woman needs. “Women only need one pair of jeans — but they must fit,” he told Breaking News. “There are pairs of jeans that are worth spending a lot of money on. Depends on the material. You wear jeans more often than an evening dress or a leather jacket.” Truuuue …

Personally, I have at least four pairs, and I’m not a jeans person at all. I’ll wear jeans maybe three times a month because I live in leggings, dresses, and skirts. But, despite that, I still have a variety of denim, because certain jeans just don’t fit with every occasion. I need my regular skinny jeans for day to day, my dressed-up skinny jeans for evening affairs, a loose pair for relaxed Sunday brunch, and my distressed worn-out pair for when I really feel like being a bum. Sorry, Tommy, one pair just won’t do for me, no matter how nice they may be. Then again, what a brilliant exercise in minimalism. How many pairs of jeans do you have? Could you survive with just one?

Style 911: Is It Possible To Make My Tight Pants Bigger?

“I gained about 8 pounds (which I am totally fine with, BTW), but one thing that is annoying me is the fact that my skinniestjeans simply won’t button anymore. I can get them on and since they have a bit of stretch they look fine on my legs, but no amount of twisting and turning and laying on my back will allow me to button them. Is there anything I can do to get them to fit again. You know, besides losing weight?”–Rebecca

Actually Rebecca, we suspect you’re not all alone out there. A couple of suggestions, after the jump … Keep reading »

Jeans Are The New Power Suit

President Obama gave fashion critics something to talk about when he displayed a pair of “mom jeans” at a baseball game, Nicolas Sarkozy and his lovely wife Carla both donned denim for a recent trip to Egypt, and the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, chose jeans for a dinner date with Obama. Steve Jobs kept his fashion taste simple through the years — a black turtleneck and a pair of Levi’s 501s.

Suddenly, jeans are the new power look. Keep reading »

10 Tips For Denim Shopping With The Boyfriend

Many boys wear bad jeans. Not always, but it happens. Next time your boy goes denim shopping, tag along and keep him from making the same mistakes once again. Whether that boy is your boyfriend, your dad or any other male with whom you spend any amount of time, they’ll resent you at the time but appreciate it once they realize it no longer looks like their asses are eating their pants.

  1. Boys shouldn’t wear skinny jeans. Period. Next.
  2. Avoid pockets that are too big, small, low or embellished at all costs. There’s really no reason to have a rhinestone-encrusted tiger on your ass.
  3. Keep reading »

New Diesel Jeans Will Get The Boys To Notice You!

INTERIOR, A NIGHT CLUB:

An obviously dorky, wallflower-like girl, Stacey, stands alone awkwardly at the bar. Her ultra-hot friend, Tracy, walks up and joins her, sweaty from the dance floor. The music is blaring.

Stacey: Tracy, you get so many guys. I just don’t know how you do it! I can’t even get a dude to look at me.
Tracy: You know what your problem is, Stacey?
Stacey: I barely fill out an A-cup and become too invested after sex?
Tracy: No. They don’t look at you because they can’t see you. Literally. That’s why I wear these (points to pants), Diesel‘s glow-in-the-dark jeans.
Stacey: Oooh, you’re glowing and you’re not even pregnant!
Tracy: Uh, right. Anyhow, they’re part of the fall 2009 collection, and they’re painted with a special coating which lights up under UV lights. Some of the jeans come with stitching or graphics that show up in the dark. This way, guys can pick me out of a crowd in a dark club.
Stacey: Right on! You glow, girl! [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »

Skinny Jeans—For Less Than 10 Bucks!

Forever 21 has just released a pair of dark wash, one-percent stretch skinny jeans for $9.50. Yes, $9.50. (I’ve been known to spend more on lunch!) Got to say, they’ve got the right amount of spandex stretch to be flattering, are in a great, go-anywhere wash and, on the model at least, look to be the best length for all the insane heels we’re crushing on these days. What do you think, too good to be true? If anyone hits up Forever 21, I’m begging you to try ‘em on and report back! [Lucky via Racked] Keep reading »

How Often Do You Buy New Jeans? And How Long Until You Chuck Them?

It goes without saying—the one item in your closet that’s older than the latest “High School Musical” star? Probably your favorite pair of jeans. A new survey from the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, England finds that Brits hang on to their jeans longer than any other piece of clothing, and that nearly two million people have pairs they bought as much as 40 years ago.

Hole-y jeans! Keep reading »
