Do Not Want: Marc by Marc Jacobs Slouchy (AKA “Mom”) Jeans

We’ll spare Obama in this discussion about Mom jeans, but Marc Jacobs is definitely not off the hook. C’mon, Marc: What’s up with these “lightweight slouchy” jeans? Don’t tell us you’ve got some very sensible tennis shoes and fanny packs to match? [Shopbop] Keep reading »

How To Wear The New Wide-Leg Jeans

You may not want to give away those skinny jeans just yet, but it does seem that in the near future, your denim legs will get wider again.

“Wide legs, trousers, super flares, and bell bottoms are definitely the new fashion-forward trend, not only in the premium denim market but everywhere,” Jerome Dahan, founder and designer of Citizens of Humanity, tells us. Read more Keep reading »

Would You Freeze Your Jeans?

Freezers are good for many things: preserving food, chilling vodka, storing body parts, and, apparently, cleaning denim. Seriously: sticking your jeans in the freezer for a few days will kill bacteria and alleviate odors while avoiding significant shrinkage (George Costanza would be proud). Stains can’t be frozen out, but this is an interesting technique nonetheless.

I wash my jeans after every wear because I’m kind of a fanatic about squeaky clean jeans, but I might have to give this method a try just out of curiosity. How about you — how do you usually wash your jeans, and how often? [via Crushable]

Frisky Exclusive Q&A: Levi’s Responds To Controversy Over Their Curve ID Jeans

If you have opened a magazine or looked at a billboard anytime in the past few months, you have heard of Levi’s new Curve ID jeans. Last summer, Levi’s launched a new fit system for their denim based on a woman’s body shape, instead of her size. The company performed body scans of 60,000 women around the world and identified three main body types — “slight curve,” “demi curve,” and “bold curve” — which fit 80 percent of women. Exciting news, right? Keep reading »

Would You Wear This Levi’s Denim Onesie?

The outfit in the photo above appears to consist of a shirt and jeans, but, in actuality, it’s Levi’s Double Denim Onesie. This one-piece has a chambray shirt attached to a pair of straight-fit jeans and takes all the guesswork out of getting dressed … for at least one day a week. But wouldn’t it be much easier to get dressed if you simply owned a chambray shirt, which could go with skirts and other pants, and a pair of perfectly fitting jeans, which you could wear with other tops? Not to mention there are much cheaper ways to get the denim-on-denim look of this onesie that costs $194. I love one-pieces and jumpsuits as much as the next person, but the point of those garments is to look like one piece, not the lazy person’s uniform. Would you wear Levi’s denim onesie?

Sorry, Levi’s: Turns Out, Jeans Are Way, Way Older Than We Thought

While many like to believe that Levi Strauss invented denim as we know it in 1873, it turns out that jeans have a much, much longer history. Historians have known that denim fabric is actually centuries old, but have been murky on details of its regional origin, pointing to Nimes in France or Genoa, Italy. Thanks to a collection of newly discovered paintings that just went on display in Paris, fashion history is becoming clearer. The 17th-century paintings by an anonymous artist (called “Master of the Blue Jeans”) all feature what appears to be denim in very detailed illustration. Art historians were able to figure out that the works came from Northern Italy. On the exhibition, the famed high-fashion denim designer Francois Girbaud said, “This calls into question the entire history we have been telling up until now. And that’s what’s fun.” Neat!

Boyfriend, Skinny, “Skinny Flare”—What Kind Of Jeans Do You Wear?

Denim trends are kind of like Madonna, constantly in a state of reinvention. The latest thing we’ve seen is what Shopbop calls the “skinny flare” jean (like the True Religion example on the left). The flare is one style we have particularly cringe-worthy memories of, but regardless, we’re not surprised to see its comeback and the minor changes that make it acceptable (just add the word “skinny”—genius).

We’re interested to know—are you the type who switches up your denim? Or do you have a go-to style whether it’s bootcut, skinny, high-waist, jeggings, etc.? Tell us what kinds of jeans you’re into in the comments below. Keep reading »
