J Brand has reinvented the cargo pants yet again for Spring. For this season they updated the style with welt pockets at the hips and smaller side pockets. Another change is the addition of darts at the knees instead of the a moto-stitching that was prominent in their previous styles.
I find these details give them a more sleeker, more feminine vibe than the previous styles that J Brand has released. There is a toughness without the heavy feel that some cargos can have. What do you think of this new take on the cargo pants? You can click here to purchase them from the J Brand website.
Jennifer Garner was spotted getting breakfast with her children in Santa Monica, California. The actress wore a pair of jeans by a brand that we haven’t seen her in before, the Textile Elizabeth and James Stills in Lovesick.
I think these jeans fit Jennifer really well and are right on with the straight-leg trend (or as I say, “the skinny jean from when the skinny jeans first came in around 10 years ago”) that is slowly starting to creep back up in the market. I don’t think that skinny jeans will be going anywhere, but it is refreshing to see styles that let the ankles breath for the moment. I am all for the style if they fit as well as these. Then again, I have never known a pair by Textile that I didn’t like. You can click here to purchase these jeans ON SALE from REVOLVEclothing for $146.

Karl Lagerfeld was spotted out in New York before attending the event for his collaboration with Melissa Shoes. The designer wore a pair of the Blondie Mid-Rise Slim-Leg Jeans in Black Sprayhead from his KARL collection.
Karl must have the same issue with his skinny jeans as I do. I rarely, if ever, see him in a pair that doesn’t have the bottom split. That is the main reason why I prefer ankle zips, to adjust how open I want the hem. Do you readers also have this issue? You can click here to purchase these jeans from Net-A-Porter for $249.

Anine Bing has quickly become a favorite brand amongst many ladies. After releasing a sea of skinny jeans and shorts, Anine has come out with a pair of boyfriend jeans that are sure to have all her fans falling for.
Unlike many boyfriend jeans that leans toward a “lazy” vibe opposed to flattering the body, these are cut slim with a lower rise to do the opposite. They are feminine and flattering with all the casualness of a boyfriend. The distressing on them is just another positive.
