I was a huge fan of the A/W 2013 Stella McCartney collection. The way she did plaids and stripes felt new and the shapes of the clothing felt classic. One of the pieces that instantly stopped me when I was scrolling through was the Rachel Shirt.
I am always up for a new take on the denim shirt and this is just what it is. Given a boxy pullover cut and plaid sleeves, it is nothing like the usual styles that we have been seeing. It feels smarter than casual in my opinion and works with everything from slouchy black skinny jeans to a simple skirt to wide leg pants. What do you think of this new take on the denim shirt?

I recently introduced you to MQT, but I wanted to share with you what they recently brought out. It’s called Pack A Poncho and it literally is a denim poncho that you can pack up! Here is the press release from the brand about the poncho. What do you think of it?
With the festival season in full swing, Denim specialists, ‘MQT’ proudly introduce their first all-weather, signature, camo-print poncho. Uniquely created from raw camouflage denim fabric with an advanced water repellent finish, this poncho is an essential for all outdoor party people!
Originating from South America, the poncho was used by the military in the early 19th century as protection against the wind and rain. Today the poncho has become an iconic symbol of British festivals. The denim pioneers at ‘MQT’ have developed the poncho to provide maximum protection, to battle through the elements whilst looking as cool as possible! Just as the Parka is to the Mods or the Biker to the rockers, the poncho is the jacket of choice for the hardened festival goer.
Ever since their collaboration with J Brand a few years back, Proenza Schouler has slowly been incorporating more denim into their line. Most recently they have taken the desire to make their mark in the denim market a bit further by releasing even more styles each season.
Everything from the classic denim jacket to a specked high rise style, Proenza Schouler kept the branding clean. There is no signature logo on the pocket or anywhere else on the jeans, just a simple leather patch on the waistband reading the brands name. How many of you are interested in trying these styles? You can click here to purchase the styles at NET-A-PORTER.
Blank NYC is a brand that brings together fashion forward thought at affordable prices without taking away the quality. They have taken one of the trends, quilted stripes, that took over on the runways of New York and tweaked into something that is all their own.
One thing that BLANK does right with their quilted denim is their color choices. The shade of blue is complimented so well with the vegan leather and black denim. What do you think of these jeans? Would you wear them? You can click here to purchase these jeans from their website.
