New Jeans Trends
Two of my favorite brands, Proenza Schouler and J Brand announced their collaboration during Fall Fashion week. which had all over graffiti print, lending an 80s street vibe. The jean is made from 11oz of Japanese denim, which is printed, then painted to achieve the texture and dimension, ensuring a unique look. The collection was available for purchase starting in July.
However, the latest celebrity to wear the collaboration is Elly Jackson. For the infamous September issue of Vogue, Elly donned a pair of the black and white graffiti skinny jeans, as she appeared in a feature with models and celebrities like Dakota Fanning and Hayden Christensen.

January Jones goes shopping at Target with rumored beau Saturday Night Live star, Jason Sudeikis. January was recently cast in the upcoming film, X-Men Origins: First Class. She will play Emma Frost, who is the White Queen with telepathic powers.
January is wearing a pair of O*T*R jeans, in the Renegade Skinny jean in Notorious wash. She’s been seen in these skinnies before. I still haven’t tried O*T*R jeans, since I still think they’re flying under the radar but I think more and more celebs are becoming fans! I really like the detail along the cuff of the of the ankles. You can buy these OTR jeans at Revolve Clothing for $136.
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.”
A lot of celebrities have been seen out wearing denim dresses, which I think is a perfect look for summer. Accessorize them however you want and you can make a casual or dressier outfit. I chose the three looks below because I think they represent 3 different ways to wear this trend.
I love Jessica Alba’s look of her denim Isabel Marant dress paired with chunkier boots. The boots make the dress a little less girly and sweet. You could just as easily pair this with a pair of flip flops for the pool or wedges for a fun night out.
This dress from Surface to Air has a great cut and could easily be accessorized with a great necklace and shoes! It retails for $276 here.
LeAnn Rimes chose to take a bit of a sexier route by wearing this corset style mini dress from Lover. This dress is currently on sale for $283.50 at Net-a-porter but if that is still out of your budget, check out some of the alternatives below.
This dark denim dress from Voom retails for $104 and can be purchased here.
This sweet little dress just needs perfect heels to take it from sweet to sexy. It retails for $63 from Modcloth.
While I was not too fond of Liv Tyler’s Stella McCartney jumper style denim dress, I think that a jumper style dress has great potential and could be a basic that works from spring with a cardigan over it to winter layered with a tee and boots.
This adorable dress from Asos shows enough leg not to be matronly but still lends the possibility to be conservative by layering it with a tee or tank (like Liv). It retails for $60 here.
