Salt and Peppa busted out on the music scene in 1985. Their destroyed denim style is a great representation of the 1980’s. Ciara below shows that this is one fashion flashback that we love to have. So many celebs have come to love this destroyed look and I think this style has been recycled quite a few times in the last 40 years.
Check out the similarity of Madonna’s shorts and Miranda Cosgrove’s jeans too! Madonna may be one of the first pioneers of the messy chic look of the 80’s. From that also stemmed the destroyed jeans look that I don’t think is going away anytime soon.
Penn Badgley was spotted with girlfriend Blake Lively on a lovely stroll around the Meatpacking District in New York. He was wearing a pair of 7 For All Mankind cut offs. I don’t think these are part of the Sevens collection. They must have been cut off by Penn himself. Are you readers excited for the new season of Gossip Girl? I’m waiting to see what happened to Chuck after the attack.
As much as I have blogged about these, I am actually not a big fan of the denim cut offs on men. I really do not know why… it is just not my cup of tea when it comes this trend. Though I do think all of them wore the trend great. Which male celebrity was your favorite in the denim cut-off trend so far?
I have such a girl crush on Blake Lively (and this amazing outfit)! I love the way that this outfit is styled, with a denim vest over the vibrant print skirt and simple tank. The vest is unlike any denim vest I’ve seen before. The length, wash and tailoring of the vest make it much dressier and pulls the entire outfit together.
Blake and Leighton Meester have been in Paris, filming scenes for the upcoming season of Gossip Girl but returned back to NYC to continue filming. I think this outfit perfectly encompasses Serena’s chic-hippiness, however, I’m not sure of who the designer is. My first thought was that it was from the Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 RTW collection, since it featured all of those beautiful blues, but it’s not. Can anyone ID it?
EDIT: Thanks to reader Jane, who id’d this vest as Current/Elliott’s Anchor Vest in Sunshadow.
Another brand coming out with their own cargos is Black Orchid. But unlike the many other brands they have stuck to denim for this new style. The Black Rider skinny Cargos come in three different washes: The Newton wash which is a dark blue wash with fading and whiskering. Next is the Midnight wash which is a clean dark blue and last is the Eclipse which is a faded black wash (which is huge this season). They all come in their wonderful jegging material. So these are bound to be comfortable.
I think the washes of these have such a rich quality to them, I think they look fantastic. I think the little detail around the knee is great too, it gives that little extra to them than just adding cargo pockets to a pair of jeans and calling them “cargo”. The only thing these are missing (personal opinion) are ankle zips on the inseam. Black Orchid is a favorite among celebs such as Ellen Pompeo, Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon, and more. I wonder which of one these celebs will be caught wearing these cargos. You can purchase these cargos at BlackLabelBoutique for $150.
