I cannot tell you how excited I am to see this style come out by Textile Elizabeth and James. They make one of the best jeans. They are so soft and keep their hold all day. Plus they have pockets. Something that has been lacking a bit in the denim department since the denim legging hit the market. Then to see this style come out by them is just a dream come true. I hope this fit is a core fit and keeps coming out in more washes as the new seasons roll by.
These are the Lou jeans. The Lou is a mid-rise skinny jean that has an inseam zipper at the hem. It currently comes in one wash and that is the Snapdragon. I can see the inspiration from the flower into the wash. It has a golden color with some fuchsia undertones. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Shopbop for $195.
Pretty much every brand is coming out with their take on the neon denim trend! Next to follow is Rag & Bone! They have just released their Legging Jeans in Neon Yellow and I think they look really cool! It could just be the lighting on Shopbop, but these have a more powerful yellow feel to them. A lot of the neons we have been seeing are more pastel shades, but these feel like they are a very bold and bright statement. Would you wear these? You can buy these jeans online at Shopbop for $187.
While everyone is starting to come out with their floral prints and neons, AG went another route with a print that you normally don’t associate with being printed all around a pair of jeans, Ikat. They came out with their classic Stilt jeans in a cool new wash called Ikat Blue.
I can actually see some celebs in these, like Fergie, Nicole Richie and even Emmanuelle Alt. I think cuffed up, with a belt and a plain tee, they’ll be perfect for a warm day out. What do you think? Are they too bold for you? You can click here to purchase these jeans at Shopbop for $185.
J Brand have re-invented their cargos to make them even more tough. If the Agnes and the Houlihans had a baby it would be the new Maverick pants. They come in two washes at the moment, The Vintage Black Widow, a washed out black, and Vintage Armadillo, a worn-in green wash.
The noticeable front zippers are not the only change from the Houlihans. The little detail is what really makes these a new style. The front pockets alone are different. Instead of the usual stitching under the waistband, these are pleated over to give a more trouser feel. The knee detailing is also different. These are rounded to contour the knee caps instead of just angled. The back pockets have also changed as well. These have welt pockets instead of the flap pockets of its parents.
