For the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, Simon Miller took their man to the Southwest. The washes were sun-bleached and worn in ways to feel as though they are naturally worn without straying from the Simon Miller soul.
Along with the washes, new to this season is their new M001 narrow fit and new shirting, like over-dyed styles and a baseball jersey. They didn’t stop there. This season also marks the venture into footwear by collaborating with Australian brand Volley. The outcome? Four pairs of shoes in four different denim and indigo variations in clean silhouettes. You can see all of these styles and more below.
When it comes to styles that I have been waiting ages for, TEXTILE Elizabeth and James is one of the brands that is at the same mindset as me. With their new Fiona jeans they incorporated the inseam zipper along with their classic skinny fit that will flatter anyone.
The style comes in two washes that are perfect for the season, Oats and Destroyed Midnight. Whether you prefer a softer look with an off-white or something more tougher with black, these jeans will have you ready for any event, from concerts to holiday dinners to throughout the year. I cannot wait to see where else they will take this style.
Lately I have been preferring looks with white jeans for the winter season over summer. It’s a great way to add a crisp feel to layered looks, as shown by many of the editors of Vogue Paris throughout the years. For these looks, I choose the Hudson Nico in White to work with. They have a great cropped fit that is super slim and can have a great slouch to it depending on the size you choose.
This one is more for the fall weather (in warmer locations, i.e. California) than winter if I had to be honest. One of my favorite looks is an all white one with hints of silver working throughout the look. The new Isabel Marant x H&M belt is the best piece to give that hint of silver along with the details of these Saint Laurent boots. I then added a scarf by Proenza Schouler because it gives just enough color without taking away from the crisp white look of the jeans with the IRO t shirt.
Another one of my favorite looks is a pair of cropped white jeans with some Chelsea boots. Especially when they are about an inch or two above the shaft of the jeans and showing a tad of ankle. I chose the classic pair by Balenciaga because they are just the perfect cut in my eyes. Then to add a “borrowed from the boyfriend” look, I chose a plaid shirt from IRO, a jacket from R13 and some Ray-Bans to keep the look feeling classic.
As the other two were paired with ankle boots, I wanted to do something without a pair and with a more feminine sense. Something that still had the essence and structure of winter without the literal shoe choice. For this look here, the jeans are styled with a jacket by IRO, a t shirt by R13, some Saint Laurent pumps and to finish it off, the Lucrezia by Givenchy.
-So how many of you will be wearing your layers with white jeans for this season?
Ashley has worn these jeans many times already, but this is the first time that we have seen her wear them without the cuff. I think it’s great seeing her wear them in a new way, I hope to see her style them this way more. Maybe with some ankle boots next, like her Balenciaga boots.
