Denim Overalls… It used to be the clothing for just farmers… But not anymore! Starting off the trend on the runways was Ralph Lauren and Jean Paul Gaultier with his collaboration with Levi’s. Following behind a couple of seasons after many denim brands such as Citizens of Humanity and G-Star have come out with their versions. The key to wearing overalls is to keep it relaxed. Choose lighter washes and flat shoes. Also choose a flattering fit, more fitted rather than second-skin or baggy.

Re-posted in case you missed it last time.
I wanted to introduce you to my own personal blog which is called Raindrops of Sapphire. The blog is about my style and my purchases so you can get to know me a little better as the editor and one of the main writers of DenimBlog. I put the blog together so you can relate more to who is writing what and for you to also check out the kind of clothes I wear and my style. It will of course have lots of denim in it as I have a huge denim addiction which has lead to a massive collection as well. I am a shoe fanatic too and I love jewellery, accessories, dresses, jackets… Everything to do with fashion. It’s just a little extra blog for you to read if you love Louboutin shoes and more. I also love customizing my clothes and doing DIY on shoes and things so it will have lots of that in there too! I hope you enjoy it! You can view the blog by clicking here.
I would love to get to know our loyal fans of DenimBlog as well so why don’t you post your own blog links in the comments section of this post as I would love to check them out!
This weeks review is one for the guys! No it’s not me modeling the jeans haha, it’s a guest blog.
So this week I am reviewing Nudie Slim Jim jeans in Blue Stone Organic. They are a medium blue wash with large fading down the front of the thighs to the knees. They are quite a simple looking wash but I think the colour will definitely be nice for Summer. I have owned a few pairs of Nudie jeans in various cuts and these are my 4th pair of Slim Jim’s. If I had to put them in order, I would rate these as my 2nd favourite, only to be beaten by their Indigo On Black wash.
They are a slim, straight cut with a low rise. The denim is fairly soft and quite stretchy due to the 2% stretch the fabric contains. However, compared to the other Slim Jim’s I have tried over the years, these ones are a lot tighter all over. They are going to need a bit of breaking in! The only issue I do have with these Nudie jeans is they have a zip fly instead of buttons, I’d much rather have the latter, but this is more of a personal preference.
I like these jeans a lot because of the wash and because they have the Slim Jim cut which is my favourite cut from Nudie. They are currently my new most worn pair, the indigo on black I mentioned are having a bit of a break! The wash is a lovely blue and after a bit of breaking in will be a lot more comfortable. I recommend them as a great Summer jean. Buy these jeans here at Cultizm. They are a great store for Nudie jeans as the Nudie website is sold out!
