What do you think about True Religion’s new line of shoes and boots? I like a few pairs of the high heeled boots, and the Bikey flat boots, but the rest are pretty horrid. The tennis shoes look like Hypercolor T-shirts from the 1980′s and the last two pairs of boots look like men’s boots to me!
Check out this article from this month’s InStyle Magazine featuring actress Sophia Bush, a self-proclaimed “expert in Jeanetic theory”. I have to admit, the fact that she buys multiples of the same pair of jeans, hems them, and then categorizes and labels them by length (L for Long, S for Short) does qualify her as a denim lover for sure! Love her favorite picks too – including J Brand’s Lovestory jeans.
Britney Spears was spotted on April 20th in a classic white t-shirt and a pair of Levi’s. What do you think of her casual look? Even celebs are being spotted in Levi’s more lately instead of designer jeans…hmm.

Distressed denim was featured in the latest issue of Elle magazine. I love distressed denim but sometimes it can go too far. For example, Destroyed Brand takes distressing to an extreme. I don’t care that Britney Spears wore a pair in her music video – they are just too much!
A few notches down on the distressed scale are True Religion’s Bobby jeans in Death Valley Medium and their Joey jean in Mo-Fo. Still distressed but not too crazy.
If you want a bit more distressing in a pair of True Religions, check out the Joey jean in Destroyed – definitely more rock n’ roll but not hideous like the Destroyed Brand jeans.
The most wearable version of the trend, and my favorite is 7 For All Mankind’s Flare jean in Havana 2 wash – a little distressing here and there, pulled out stitches and a cut out tag on the back pockets. The Havana 2′s have just the right amount of distressing to be cool, but not so much that it looks like you attacked your jeans with a pair of scissors!
What do you think of this trend? Would you go for the super destroyed look or the more subtly distressed look?
