Originally, I was not a huge fan of denim jackets, but once I started seeing celebrities in motorcycle jackets I knew I wanted one. I loved this version from Current/Elliot but it was sold out. I saw Gap‘s Biker Denim Jacket on celebrities like Jessica Alba and Jamie King and thought it looked like a great alternative. When I went to try it on (and saw the price, under $50!) I fell in love with it!

A lot of celebrities have been seen out wearing denim dresses, which I think is a perfect look for summer. Accessorize them however you want and you can make a casual or dressier outfit. I chose the three looks below because I think they represent 3 different ways to wear this trend.
I love Jessica Alba’s look of her denim Isabel Marant dress paired with chunkier boots. The boots make the dress a little less girly and sweet. You could just as easily pair this with a pair of flip flops for the pool or wedges for a fun night out.
This dress from Surface to Air has a great cut and could easily be accessorized with a great necklace and shoes! It retails for $276 here.
LeAnn Rimes chose to take a bit of a sexier route by wearing this corset style mini dress from Lover. This dress is currently on sale for $283.50 at Net-a-porter but if that is still out of your budget, check out some of the alternatives below.
This dark denim dress from Voom retails for $104 and can be purchased here.
This sweet little dress just needs perfect heels to take it from sweet to sexy. It retails for $63 from Modcloth.
While I was not too fond of Liv Tyler’s Stella McCartney jumper style denim dress, I think that a jumper style dress has great potential and could be a basic that works from spring with a cardigan over it to winter layered with a tee and boots.
This adorable dress from Asos shows enough leg not to be matronly but still lends the possibility to be conservative by layering it with a tee or tank (like Liv). It retails for $60 here.
As one of the most versatile and popular fabrics, designers tend to get a bit creative with denim in order to stand out. However, it doesn’t mean that everything is attractive. There are some major denim disasters! Like the above jeans/pajamas from Dolce and Gabbana! Check out some of Refinery 29′s list of denim disasters below. I’ll confess and say that I think lace up jeans (like the pair Justin Gaston was spotted in) are horrible! To make it worse, I used to OWN a pair! What do you think are some of the worst denim disasters?

This weeks review is on the brand new brand SOLD Design Lab Jeans. I have done a couple of posts on the brand already and I wanted to share a review on a pair of their jeans with you.
I think these acid washed pull on skinny jeggings are so cute! They don’t have a zipper, they just use a button so you pull them on and I love that! It’s not difficult either because they are so stretchy! They feel just like cotton leggings or a spandex style fabric, they really are that flexible. They are very easy to move in and I love wearing them! I’m also a big fan of the acid wash trend and this new brand havs this grey version of it done perfectly! I love it, I think it’s very pretty.
