I decided to make a post on the versatility of a good pair of jeans. If you find the premium denim price range just that stretch too far, this post can help you see how you can wear them as a staple part of any outfit you choose, from day to night and see how much of a good investment they are. I chose to use a classic pair of J Brand 910 skinny jeans in Ink for these outfits which you can buy at most places online and in store. They will last you for forever and not fall apart like some jeans do.
The look above is something I would wear during the day for running errands or a trip to the park etc. It’s also a look that a lot of celebs favour. The sandals mixed with the cardigan and a cross body bag. The outfit consists of a JW Helm mini legacy bag from Barneys, a Crumpet Cashmere cardigan from Net-A-Porter, Forever 21 studded sandals and AV Max skinny bangles from Lespommettes. I know some of these items are pretty expensive but they help give you an idea. You can find similar items at H&M, Gap etc for much cheaper prices.
This outfit is one I would wear for a dinner date or a night out. Something sophisticated and smart but it’s still kept slightly casual enough with the mix of the jeans. This look consists of a Stone Drape blazer from Dorothy Perkins, Capecoral nude heels from Aldo, a Christian Louboutin Mini Loubi satin clutch from and Elizabeth & James Madeleine silk corset top both from Net-A-Porter.
This is a look I would wear for day time but also one that can be worn in the evening. It’s more of a smarter and chic feel to a day time outfit. This look consists of a cream knit sweater from Topshop, a Mulberry Alexa satchel, Gucci suede Karen boots from Bluefly and a Beaded Trim layered necklace from Forever21.
Twilight’s Kellan Lutz and Supermodel Anne V. were seen leaving the set of the Dylan George Fall 2011 Campaign photo shoot in Beverly Hills, California. Kellan was wearing a pair of the Dylan George, George Slim jeans in Omaha and Anne was wearing the Dylan George Diane jeans in Everest.
In addition to being the face of Dylan George, Kellan has teamed up with the brand’s founder, Danny Guez, to design a ready-to-wear menswear line, Abbot + Main by Dylan George. The 25-piece collection of t-shirts and knitwear range from $48.00 to $248.00 for cashmere hoodies. Abbot + Main by Dylan George is also set to launch in Fall 2011. It looks like Kellan is really making a mark on the brand!

Vanessa Hudgens was seen arriving for a flight at LAX airport yesterday in Los Angeles, California. I find Vanessa’s style to be one that changes daily, sometimes she will go for a boho vibe while others a more rough vibe.
This time she chose to wear a pair of Levi’s denim shorts with suede knee high boots, a white tee and an army green parka jacket. I think I would prefer this look without the black socks under the boots but it does add an edge to it. You can see my Levi’s that I customized into shorts here.
Here is a look at the new Serfontaine Autumn/Winter 2011 collection that I saw in London last week. These jeans are made specifically for the Bodymetrics Scanner in Selfridges. You can read my experience on the scanner here.
I was excited to see that they have brought out some distressed styles in the Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald fits. At the moment they just seem to have the plain washes so it’s nice to see some variation. There was one pair in particular that I liked and they had silver sequins under the distressed parts of the denim. They also had some classic washes and white denim as well. You can view the images in the gallery below.
