One statement that just epitomizes the warm weather is lace detailing. It is hitting the market at the moment and doing just that, making a statement. While many have stuck with lace-ups at the fly, Paige went for a different approach that has definitely helped their style stand out among the others.
Their new Verdugo Ankle in Optic White Laced and Grommet features lace detailing around the pockets and the hem of the jeans. They are also in a cropped cut with a side slit to help carry on the vibes of the warmer weather. Whether you choose to keep it simple with a simple white tee or pair them with ankle boots, these give a new meaning to white denim and will transform any of your classic looks.

If there is one brand that loves to experiment with styles, it is MOTHER. They first introduced the Stunner a few seasons back and since then they have taken the style to new territory by adding a frayed hem and many washes. But they have figured out how to keep the style feeling fresh and that is to intermix the cut with one of their new signatures, the Ankle Step Fray.
The addition of the uneven hem reads summer, yet gives a feeling of New Wave to it. It is one that I can see styled with slippers for a chic french feel or a pair of sandals to embrace the summer vibes that they give off. How will you style these jeans?

Reverse denim is something that I can see having a minor moment. There has been the extreme like Moschino who took the idea full on with pocket bags and seams exposed. Then there is the subtle approach like these Rag & Bone jeans who have used it more as decals.
There is balance to the style that the others who have approached the idea haven’t been able to accomplish. Down to choice of the fit for the style, it all works out and lends versatility to it.

RtA has definitely started to blur the lines between leather and denim with their Dylan leather pants and they are doing it again. A more subtle approach to the previous, the new Prince leathers have the feel of a classic pair of leather jeans with the on-trend frayed hem.
Just like the Dylan, these definitely have me excited to see people wear in as the more they are worn, the more the fray will have fluidity to the leather. I don’t know what goes on in the brains of the RtA team, but they are definitely headed in their right direction with the way they are designing.
