After my tour of Lucky Brand I got to partake in my own private fitting with Nico, the head of denim design. They took me through their current styles and elaborated on how they fit, the washes, and what their objectives were when creating the styles.
Lucky surprised me by sending me not only one pair, but THREE DIFFERENT PAIRS OF JEANS. They were all the styles I tried on at the fitting and I love them all. I got the Sienna cigarette, the Charlie skinny and the Charlie baby boot.
The Sienna cigarette was by far my favorite style, it is a boyfriend jean without being overly big, baggy and unflattering. I got a size bigger so that they sat a little lower on my hips and they are perfection. I was so inspired by the Sienna Cigarette that my outfit options were endless. I decided to showcase how you can take them from day to night because of how versatile they are. In the day look I wore the Sienna’s with some flats, a hat to shield the sun, a sheer top to keep me cool, and a lot of accessories to jazz it up. When I took the jeans into the night time I kept the same top on but buttoned it up all the way for a more put together look, held back on the accessories to keep it simplistic and classy, added heels for height and tied my hair up to dress up the look. You can’t go wrong with a blazer and when I added one it tied in the whole look. Now you’re ready for a night out!
I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Lucky Brand HQ in Downtown LA where they led me on a step by step tour on how their denim is manufactured. We got to visit the location where Lucky Brand denim is made as well as the wash house for Lucky Brand. The head of denim, Nico, took time out of his busy day to take us around and show us how he gets the job done. Click this post to see all of the photos and more.
Minka Kelly was spotted heading to her car after going to Salon Benjamin in West Hollywood, California. She wore a denim shirt with a pair of Lucky Brand Charlie Capri jeans in Snow Leopard. I really like this look. The colors of it are really nice together.
The print on those jeans is also a great leopard print. I like that the print is on the smaller side and clean. These jeans fit Minka really nicely too. The cropped fit goes really well with the boots. Click here to buy these jeans ON SALE from Lucky’s website for $69.99.
Lindsay Lohan recently wore a fabulous pair of Genetic Denim skinny velvet pants. Velvet pants are a perfect alternative to corduroy and a great way to add a little bit of dimension and flare to an outfit, especially during the upcoming holiday season.
