Textile Elizabeth and James
I attended the intimate get together for Textile Elizabeth and James at the Sunset Ballroom in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Many celebrities came out to support Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Many also came out rocking Textile.
Mary-Kate wore the Bianca Shirt Jacket Which she paired with a bow tie and leather pants. Ashley wore my favorite fit since its inception, the Iggy jeans, and a sweater from the Fall ’11 collection. Other celebs such as Nicole Richie, Emma Roberts, Dakota Fanning and more attended. They wore the Billy jeans, the Sid Jacket, and the Morrison jeans, respectively. Guests were served mini dishes as they mingled amongst each other. They also had a live performer who did great covers of many songs. You can check out pictures from the event below.
1. Colored Denim
Whether it’s brightly colored reds and greens or pale pinks, colored denim is everywhere this season. Brands like Rag & Bone and J Brand are offering a variety of fun colored jeans, which can easily be dressed up or down. You can also check out the Steal Her Style post on colored denim.
2. White Denim
White denim has been a trend for quite a few seasons and is still going to be big for this upcoming Spring. It looks fresh and crisp and the perfect contrast to the colored denim trend. For more ideas you can read Lorna’s post about this trend here.
3. Wide Leg and Flares
Although wide leg and flare jeans have been gaining popularity, this spring they’re going to be the new go to jean. Luckily, this is a style that flatters pretty much every body type. The 7 For All Mankind Georgia Trouser Jean, J Brand’s Bette Jeans and MiH Marrakesh jeans are already celebrity favorites!
First making their debut on the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2011 runway and most recently seen on the Chloe Fall/Winter 2012 runway, this trend is still a popular one and will certainly continue to be into the summer. Textile by Elizabeth and James makes some great distressed options. You can also read my Steal Her Style: Patchwork Denim post for more ideas on ways to wear this trend.
5. Tie Waist Jeans
For a more casual look, Tie Waist jeans are comfortable but still stylish. This trend is especially popular for shorts and skirts and looks great with blouses and tops tucked in to really showcase the waist. Designers like Current/Elliott and 7 For All Mankind both have tie waist styles.
January Jones was spotted at the Chanel Oscar Dinner Party at Madeo restaurant in Los Angeles, California. She wore, like many of the other stars, Chanel, but she made her look much more casual with her jacket. She chose the Textile Elizabeth and James Sid Denim Jacket in Blue River to pair with her dress.
I think the jacket made this look too casual for the nights event. If it were during the day, I think this look could have worked. This outfit would look great though to run errands in if she switched out the boots for some flat sandals. You can click here to purchase this jacket at ShopBop $295.
Cropped Flares were a trend that I didn’t think would get picked up by the masses, but I am happy it did. Stars like Jessica Alba, Elle Macpherson, and Kate Moss have all been spotted wearing these styles. The style is very laid-back for the day and easy to dress up for a night out. Brands such as Textile Elizabeth and James, Victoria Beckham, Genetic, True Religion, and of course the popular J Brand have all come out with styles in many washes.
Textile’s versions come with cut-off hems in medium blue washes. Victoria Beckham has styles in khaki and black that come with a mid-rise. Genetic combined two other trends for their version, lace-up and cut-off. The pair by True Religion come in their classic light-blue wash. Then there are the Gigis by J Brand which come in an array of colors. They come in a dark rinse, black, even some waxed styles in both black and brown. Which ones will you readers be rocking with your ankle boots and flats this spring? You can purchase these styles at both ShopBop and Net-a-Porter.
