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.
Rock & Republic have come out with their own line of denim leggings and I think they are really cute! I haven’t tried a pair yet but I really like the classic Rock & Republic fit and seeing as they are really stretchy and they have some cute washes I may give these a try! I am a huge fan of denim leggings as you know!
I love the Embrace wash, the Obsessed wash and the Defiant Black wash. They are so pretty! The blue is really deep and cute and the black is a very strong jet black. I was surprised at the prices of these too! Rock & Republic are normally known for their higher price tag but at $148 a pair they definitely wont break the bank! They have 6 different washes to choose from as well, you can see them in the gallery below. Click here to shop Rock & Republic denim leggings.
In addition to the Fall/Winter 2010, some capsule pieces have been added to the new Genetic Denim collection and they have cargos. There are four new styles in their amazing fits and wonderful fabrics to choose from. They have “The Aztec” which is a cargo in their most popular fit “The Shane.” “The Bounty” which is roomier boyfriend cargo. Along with the cargos, chinos have also been added to the collection. There is “The Prep,” which is a trouser style that comes in an olive green colour and last is “The Rane,” which is a slouchy fit pant that comes in a khaki coloured wash.
I really like how the fit of these aren’t skin tight. The fabric also looks amazing, really light weight and super soft like all their denim. These new styles will range from $149 – $176. I’m sure these will go out fast like many of the Genetic styles.
Madonna and her daughter, Lourdes, have launched a new collection for Macy’s. The line, aptly titled Material Girl, will feature rock and roll styles, including leather, lace and denim, at a wallet friendly price point.
The collection which launches August 3rd, across the country, features looks that are reminiscent of those Madonna has worn throughout her career. Including a denim motorcycle jacket, high-waisted skinny jeans, and a denim band jacket.
The price point for the collection ranges from $12-40, with special items for as much as $80. While the collection is a nod to the styles made famous by Madonna, it was really the brainchild of her 13 year old daughter, Lourdes. The singer said, “My role was really to make sure we were all going in the right direction and it was a line that I could stand behind and be proud of and feel good about — and one that she could also feel represented her. I really like the way Lola dresses, and I think this line is absolutely an extension of her taste.”
