Textile Elizabeth and James
The camouflage trend has been trickling in little by little the past couple of seasons, but this season it is hitting full force. Just because they are a print, it doesn’t mean they are lacking in details either. Brands such as Textile Elizabeth and James and Current/Elliott have incorporated zippers while April, May included seaming details. If you are looking for just a classic skinny in the print, they also have that.
The cool thing about this trend is that it is not limited to just jeans. Current/Elliott has also released their Biker Jacket in a denim camo that you can pair with any of your lightweight dress or even some jeans for the double denim look. There is also no limitation when it comes to color. Along with the classic fatigue green, brands such as Zara and Textile Elizabeth and James have also come out with pairs in blue as well as black and white. Which one’s do you fancy the most? You can see all of the styles and where to buy them below.
Melissa Benoist posed for some photos at the Season 4 premiere of Glee in Los Angeles, California. She wore a pair of the Textile Elizabeth and James Ozzy Jeans in Onyx. I like the pairing of the shirt with the jeans here, but I think a different shoe would have worked better. A pair that was in a different color. Though I do love blue, I find that it sort of clashes here against all the black.
Melissa has a really great voice in my opinion. I saw the first episode of the season (due to Kate Hudson) and her rendition of New York State of Mind with Lea Michele is amazing. One of the few covers that I think was well done. You ccan click here to purchase these jeans at MADISONLOSANGELES for $168.
Miley Cyrus was spotted at the Burbank Airport to catch her flight out to Las Vegas, Nevada for the iHeartRadio Music Festival a couple of weeks back. She wore a pair of Textile Elizabeth and James Peeking Pocket Shorts in Asylum.
Miley is another one that I wonder why we waited so long for her to wear Textile. I think it is a brand that just suits her style. The Cooper is a style that will look really cool on her in the colors and in the camouflage. She is one that I am sure will pull the camo off well.

Here is another styling post featuring the Textile Elizabeth and James Debbie jeans in Destroyed Midnight. I decided to go three different routes for this post: Winter, Casual, and Dressy to show the versatility of the jeans and prove that it is possible to go all three routes with a pair of ripped jeans.
I know that it is still pretty warm out, but I thought it’ll be nice to feature one look that will work for the colder seasons. I paired the jeans with a Just Female Wool Coat, Jeffery Campbell Taro boots, and Textile Elizabeth and James Fairfax T Shirt. By keeping the look monochromatic, I decided to go more out there with the different textures and details like the wool and fringe. The jacket and boots easily dresses up what would otherwise be a basic black look with the shape and detailing.
This is the more casual look out of the three, one that I think many girls wear day-to-day. I paired the jeans with the Textile Elizabeth and James Kelsey Parka, R13 t shirt, Diesel belt, bracelets by Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry and FELIKS+ADRIK, and Isabel Marant Betty sneakers. You cannot get more casual and still look great from wearing a look like this. All the colors work well together and the different fabrics in the shoes and belt help add some more “oomph” the look. I find adding a belt to an outfit really makes a look pull together. It helps break up an outfit (a monochromatic one especially) and really pulls everything together. They are a great way to add a unique detail without going all out.
Now for the dressier look. I thought dressing up a pair of distressed jeans would be a great idea being that you don’t see it too often. I paired the jeans with a Helmut Lang shirt, Dannijo necklace, and Givenchy heels. I think this outfit will look great if these jeans fit you more cropped. If not, folding the jeans inside to mid-ankle will fix that problem for you. A clean line in the jeans will really help this look because of the neckline of the shirt. As if the shirt didn’t dress the look up enough, I decided to add the necklace to clean up the style of the jeans even further. Adding a simple pair of heels with subtle detailing is the only thing this look needs to finish it off.
