Gorgeous Kate Beckinsale was snapped by the paps in Hollywood wearing Genetic Denim Recessive bootcut XY jeans again, she was seen in these a just over a week or so ago. I actually really like them on her even though they are men’s jeans – they are the perfect fit for loose fit and she pairs them really well with that cute hat and shades. They are truly boyfriend jeans. I really like her style!

Kate Beckinsale is wearing Genetic Denim Recessive Boot Cut! XY… Men’s! You read me right! Hmmmm… I wonder, if boyfriend jeans are jeans made for girls that look like they are a boyfriend’s jeans, then what are jeans made for boys that a wife wears? Husband jeans? Katie Holmes you better watch out. Another Kate is vying for your denim crown!

The Hills Star Heidi Montag was spotted shopping at Chanel in Beverly Hills. She is wearing a pair of Genetic Denim Skinny Jeans with zippers at the ankles (ID’d by Jessie), I actually really like them! Heidi has been spotted in this brand before, looks like its one of her loves! She’s also sporting some new Chanel designed nails. I’m in love with her shoes – they are just gorgeous, anyone know who they are by?

A couple of months back (October to be exact) I bought a pair of J Brand’s “The Deal” jeans …you know, the ones with the side ankle zippers.
At first I was hesitant. I hadn’t seen them worn yet, but 75% of me liked them off the bat. When I checked out however, I swore to my sales girl that I’d never wear them with the zippers open (ok, rarely). She promised me I’d change my mind. I have to admit, leaping back to the land of the ankle zipper felt strange at best, somewhat Madonna–but not in the Louis Vuitton way if you know what I mean. The last time I’d worn a pair personally was circa 1988– my hair in a very chic side pony.
As fashion changes, (and, yes, circles around), I am usually receptive. But, I’ve never been much into the 80′s trend although some people will disagree with me–saying that ankle zippers are not ’80′s at all–Cynthia Steffe was doing it in 2002 on black waxy high waisters after all! Yet, while Vogue was shooting brightly colored exposes a few years back, lycra and mis-shapen cardigans for all to see, I was kind of rolling my eyes all the way, praying for the cool, casual, collectivity of the ’90′s to return once again.
However, after wearing my J Brand The Deal jeans for the past 60 days (non-stop I must add) and drawing upon inspiration from all eras of style, I’m going to fold: I’m definitely hooked.
To me, the jeans go with everything. They make me feel fashion forward, yet not too trendy everytime…not to mention thin. What more could a girl ask for? I wear them with short booties for that Blondie edge, a preppy Ralph Lauren button downs with flats…even a grungy Tee, cute heels and long, layered necklaces look amazing with my J Brand’s. And the girl who sold them to me was spot on: I don’t just wear the zippers closed. I love them in every combination of partially open and all the way up too.
Are you loving Ankle Zipper denim this year? If so, how are you wearing yours?
P.S. J Brand isn’t the only denim company making ankle zipper Jeans though…so if they aren’t the perfect fit for you, try these other great pairs:
