Jeans printed with polka dots, stripes, and floral patterns are a huge trend this season, but printed denim can be tricky to style. To help you along, we assembled three very different outfits around one pair of floral jeans. Click through to check ‘em out …
As anyone who’s flipped through a fashion magazine in the past month will know, florals are really happening right now. The pattern formerly reserved for tapestries and the old pillows at your grandmother’s house has reclaimed its glory and is being worn in all its incarnations. One garment in particular became ubiquitous on the spring/summer runway, and now it’s popping up on fashion editors and celebrities alike. The unexpected rise of the floral pant is inescapable: they’re everywhere, so you may as well embrace it, even (and especially!) if they’re out of your usual comfort zone. Personally, I think they’re an awesome look, particularly when worn with an otherwise neutral, streamlined outfit. What do you think: would you wear them? If you’re looking to get your hands on a pair, check out my picks after the jump. Keep reading »
This spring, I’m all about skinny colored jeans. I’ve already grabbed myself pairs in lemon yellow and coral-red.

Unfortunately this particular pair won’t be available for sale to the public, but I’d say it’s a good indication that it won’t be long until our crotches are writing our status updates for us.

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. The sizes ranged from 2 to 14 and each size offered versions for different shaped curves. Some women were apoplectic about Levi’s over these jeans: first, because the tag line was “All asses were not created equal,” and second, because none of the models were particularly curvy. Some critics said a line like “All asses were not created equal” implied that some asses are, in fact, better than others. Another point of contention was why Curve ID ads didn’t have more women of color in their advertisements, since they purported to be for “curvy” girls and plenty of women of color are rocking curves.

Jeggings, the love child of jeans and leggings, are a huge point of contention in the fashion world. Some people think they’re the best thing to happen to denim since the advent of the dark wash boot cut. Others find them more offensive than mom jeans, acid wash skinny jeans, and men’s jean shorts combined. Here are 10 arguments for jeggings, and 10 arguments against.
