DL1961 have just announced their new collaboration collection with blogger, Bag Snob. It’s called Snob Essentials and is now selling online at Bloomingdales. The new collection features 7 styles, each for different occasions or for the 7 days of the week. The jeans in the collection are called The Brunch (berry flares), The Cocktail Pant (leather patch at calves), The Travel Pant (zipper back pocket), The Everyday Jean (classic blue skinny), The Hipster Pant (brown checked skinny), The Black Tie Substitute (metallic tapestry print) and my personal favourite, The Transition Jean (ombre/dip dye blue).
Each jeans name represents the occasion they were designed for, for example The Travel Pant is perfect for flying because you can keep your ID secure in the zipper back pocket. I love the fact that there is a story and a purpose behind each one and I can tell that a lot of effort has gone into this collaboration. My favourite pair, The Transition Jean, like I mentioned above, is truly beautiful. We don’t often see a dip dye jean in such a rich jewel tone blue. Usually it’s bleach and denim, but the fact that it changes subtly from a deep navy to more of an aquamarine really makes me a fan. I would love to wear this pair! So which is your favourite pair from the 7 Snob Essentials collaboration?

DL1961 has launched The Denim Movement campaign. It features distinguished New Yorkers that personifies the DL1961 brand through their profession and notable achievements in their industry.
First to be featured is the co-founder of Windsor Custom and Director for Paige Management, Brian Mazza. He was shot at the Windsor Custom location at The Ainsworth. You can read more information about why Brian Mazza was chosen for the first campaign and more about The Denim Movement campaign at DL 1961’s website here.
This time I got to style two pairs of DL1961 jeans for our styling challenge posts. I chose both of the Emma cuts as they are my favourite, I love how skinny and flattering they are. I usually like to keep my outfits simple and neutral with 1 or 2 items that really pop in colour, I find this brings out a look really nicely.
So for the Emma in Seaglass (above) I styled them with a Miss Selfridge tie front shirt, a Rag & Bone Tuxedo jacket, a Mulberry Bayswater bag in Burgundy, Giuseppe Zanoti double platform heels and a Made Merenge silver ring. I think this outfit is really pretty. It’s a fun look with the green and burgundy, but at the same time the blazer and the heels really bring the pieces together to give it a smarter feel. I could definitely see this outfit on someone like Kim Kardashian or Jessica Alba.
For the Emma in Onyx, I went with a red MTWTFSS Weekday Lara Blouse, Christian Louboutin Lady Peep nude heels, a nude Jeanie S clutch and a Low Luv x Erin Wasson Horse Leg pendant. This is definitely more of an evening look with the clutch and peep toe heels, I think you could wear this to dinner or out for the evening with your girlfriends/partner. Again with colour, the red blouse really gives it that pop you need to create a statement, while the other pieces in nude and black keep it toned down for a classic look.
I have included some of DL1961’s other jeans in the gallery below, so you can see what other styles they have on offer. They have the Angel in Sherbert and Key Lime along with the Kate Cropped in Chaos. All of these items are available to buy at the DL961 website by clicking here. So which outfit do you like the most?

For my second styling post, I got to create an outfit with DL1961’s Stella shorts in Flash wash and I had so much fun with it! I love the bright red of these with the subtle tie-dye print here and there. Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad was actually spotted wearing these shorts during the Coachella Festival last week, so since it’s festival season, I decided to go down that route with my styling.
For this outfit, I chose a Theysken’s Theory Orange Franky Bruna Blouse, a pair of ASH Bowie wedge sneakers in Stone, a Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch bag in Nude and then I accessorized it with a Samanca Jewelry Dawn Necklace in Tan, a Soixante Neuf Crackle Horn Necklace in Turquoise, a Burkman Bros Two Color Black/Tan Knotted Bracelet and a Burkman Bros Bark Bracelet with Beads.
What I love about this outfit is it’s so bright and fun. I adore the orange and yellow tones of the shirt and combined with the red shorts, it really stands out. I chose a turquoise necklace because it pops so much against the orange, it’s a complete contrast and looks cute, layered with the other tan coloured necklace it adds depth.
I chose the Ash sneakers for comfort and because they have a hidden heel which will give you height, plus the fact I am obsessed with these, but unfortunately they sold out in my size everywhere. The bracelets just add some flare to the wrists and the nude bag, I think it ties the colours together nicely. What do you think of the look?
