As an avid fan of the Textile Elizabeth and James Cooper jeans (they are number 1 on the top three jeans that I live in), I was happy to see that they released a shorts version for Summer. No, I probably won’t be donning these myself when the weather starts to warm up, but I still think they are cool.
Just like lace-up, I find the exposed crotch zipper to be a great detail. They edge up the classic denim shorts just far enough without taking it too far. I can already see quite a few ladies wearing these when the heat starts to kick in, with a slouchy sweater and their staple ankle boots. You can click here to purchase the Olive Camo and here for the White Camo, both from REVOLVEclothing.
Finding the perfect length has always been problematic for every woman, even for one of the biggest models right now, Karlie Kloss. Standing at 6’1″, the model had issues finding pairs that are long enough to suit her never ending legs. To solve the problem, she collaborated with Frame to come out with pairs that will not only solve her issue, but also the many other women that have the same problem.
The styles that came into fruition from necessity, not ambition, are the Forever Karlie jeans. Two cuts, a flare and skinny, that have a 40″ inseam. They will be available in light and dark washes that are not only versatile, but classic. Keep an eye out for these when they will be available at Barneys New York, Net-A-Porter, Ron Herman, and Jeffrey in June. Will any of you taller ladies be trying these out?
Here is a look at some new styles that J Brand has for the men this Summer. J Brand is always one to keep their men’s styles classic with a few tweaks here and there to freshen them up, like the Kane in Bowery above, they updated the staple light blue jeans by adding 3D wrinkling at just the waist area and hand sanded details.
They have the Tyler in Varick (image 5), which is an ultra faded style in a super slim fit. A pair that is very on trend this season is the Kane in Ludlow (image 4). These are a pair made of chambray, so they are perfect for beating the upcoming heat. You can also see their new Bowery wash in the Kane fit below and they didn’t leave jackets out of the picture either.
