This weeks review is one for the guys! No it’s not me modeling the jeans haha, it’s a guest blog.
So this week I am reviewing Nudie Slim Jim jeans in Blue Stone Organic. They are a medium blue wash with large fading down the front of the thighs to the knees. They are quite a simple looking wash but I think the colour will definitely be nice for Summer. I have owned a few pairs of Nudie jeans in various cuts and these are my 4th pair of Slim Jim’s. If I had to put them in order, I would rate these as my 2nd favourite, only to be beaten by their Indigo On Black wash.
They are a slim, straight cut with a low rise. The denim is fairly soft and quite stretchy due to the 2% stretch the fabric contains. However, compared to the other Slim Jim’s I have tried over the years, these ones are a lot tighter all over. They are going to need a bit of breaking in! The only issue I do have with these Nudie jeans is they have a zip fly instead of buttons, I’d much rather have the latter, but this is more of a personal preference.
I like these jeans a lot because of the wash and because they have the Slim Jim cut which is my favourite cut from Nudie. They are currently my new most worn pair, the indigo on black I mentioned are having a bit of a break! The wash is a lovely blue and after a bit of breaking in will be a lot more comfortable. I recommend them as a great Summer jean. Buy these jeans here at Cultizm. They are a great store for Nudie jeans as the Nudie website is sold out!

Coachella not only is a music festival but also a fashion event!
Over the course of three days, Celebs show off their best casual style. Because of the hot temperatures, one huge trend was denim shorts. Celebrities rocked tons of styles, like Beyonce, who wore a pair of cut offs by True Religion. Both Hayden Panettiere and Kate Bosworth wore a cuffed denim pair by J Brand. Kate chose the 1043 style, in Neptune which she paired with short booties. Hayden wore the 1047 style, in Indigo, which she layered over tights (wasn’t she hot?) Celebs like Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson (in Paige Premium) wore jeans shorts paired with gladiators, a look which will be continue to be big this summer!
Most of the guys, however, chose jeans, like Alexander Skarsgard, who opted for a dark wash pair all three days. Zac Efron hung out, blowing bubbles with girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, in a pair of lighter wash Diesel jeans.
Some opted for a trendier look, like Kelly Osborn who rocked denim-on-denim, wearing a chambray shirt with cutoff shorts. While, Peaches Gedolf looked casually cute in a denim dress paired over a bikini.
What were some of your favorite looks from Coachella? You can purchase some of the denim looks at Boutique to You.
Here is the Fall 2010 men’s and women’s Look Book for Superfine Denim. They have stuck to their originality and the Look Book is very ‘Superfine’ style. It’s nice to see a brand keep the same look and feel when they create new seasons collections.
