The denim miniskirt is a trend that many would not expect to see back, but it is one that has some leverage for the new season. One label that is not afraid of taking it on is R13. Known for their dirty washes and edgy attitude, they infused their aesthetic into the normally casual piece.
There is a ruggedness to the style that will sure make this a preferred piece for many girls due to its versatility. Made of 100% cotton, the rigidness helps breathe the R13 vibe into a piece that is normally associated with femininity. Whether it be paired with a slouchy band tee or with a gauzy top, the denim mini skirt is back and it is no longer a piece that is just for girls in beach towns anymore.

While the men’s Spring 2016 collection took inspiration from punk, R13 pushed the boundaries on grunge with their women’s line. The new pieces have been given a cleaner approach from the Spring collection of the previous year. The frays are more minimal, the distressing isn’t as heavy and the denim has a lighter note to it.
You can expect to see the R13 staples of plaid, leather, and of course denim. But this season the pieces were given new breath with new cuts like Shrunken styles and straighter fits that have the sense of the ‘Modern Vintage’ trend to them, yet still with the R13 aesthetic. You can check out the new collection below.
Here is a look at the new Spring 2016 R13 collection for men. The collection is a lighter take on the R13 aesthetic, but still embodying the punk persona that they are known for. Whether it be white denim or the classic white button-up, you can expect R13 to edge them out and make them feel cooler than you’d ever expect.
You can expect their signature washes like washed blacks and rigid blues in their staple cuts like the Skate and Boy along with new ones like ankle zip joggers. Also part of the line are the perfect outerwear and tops to accompany the denim that are just as edgy as the denim themselves. There is an airiness to the collection that is new for R13, yet the soul of the label is still there. You can check out all the pieces from the new collection below.
Spending the day at the beach with her kids, Jennifer Lopez was snapped in a pair of R13 X Over jeans in vintage dark, which she paired with a black turtleneck tee. While I love this look, it seems a bit over dressed for the beach!
I do love seeing these jeans out again. This X Over style is one of the best updates on the traditional denim silhouette in many years past. I love the twist on it and think it is such a great touch. You can buy R13 online from Shopbop.com.
