New Jeans Trends
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.
How cute is this bracelet?! It’s by the designer Jules Smith. It’s a denim double wrap bracelet, accentuated with a gold snap star closure, splattered gold detailing and a thin link chain for a playful, all-American look. I love it! It’s also available in black and you can buy them at JulesSmithDesigns.com. The only downside is it is pretty expensive for a little denim bracelet, it retails at $110. What do you think of it? Do you want one?
The Chanel Cruise collection debut in St. Tropez was a star studded event! The collection featured pastels offset by light wash denim shorts and pants for men and women. It also included a few stunning darker colored pants (For men and women) paired with similarly hued tweeds. I love the bohemian vibe the florals and light denim give!
