Dark skinnies are a necessity for any closet. No matter the weather or the destination, our dark skinny jeans are a perfect go-to. This season, we’re focused on flaunting extra large cuffs, and our favourite pair to do that with is the Dutil. Quintessential Series in the mid-rise (which is also available in a high-rise, and in black, too).
“Denim on Denim 2.0”
We’re giving the term “denim on denim” a new meaning this spring. Rather than falling victim to the “Canadian Tuxedo”, we’re revamping our denim tuxes by pairing dark jeans with a white denim jacket. We love the contrast between the two colors, as well as between the raw and washed denim textures. Todd is wearing a Naked & Famous Natural Nep Selvedge jacket with the Neuw Ray Tapered Jean in Indigo Dip.
“It’s All in the Details…”
Exotic prints and Spring/Summer collections go hand in hand. But if you’re not quite ready to take the plunge and go full-on pastel floral this spring, Naked & Famous has got you covered with their dark tropical print Regular Shirt. We think the shirt looks pretty fantastic paired with both light and dark denim (or both!).
Anything men can wear, women can wear just as well. Ladies, don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zones this season and experiment with men’s fits. We all know they’ve got a hell of a lot more options when it comes to raw denim. Take the “boyfriend” look to a more literal level by actually wearing his favorite pair of raws. Lizzie is wearing the men’s Naked & Famous Weird Guy Stretch Selvedge paired with a Dutil. pocket t-shirt in organic cotton.
“Green on Blue”
Who said wearing green on blue was a fashion faux pas? They clearly hadn’t taken a peek at Spring 2015 fashion trends yet. This season we’re combining the earthy tones and shades of navy seen on catwalks with our Dutil. Quintessential Series jean in the “Lean” fit. The delicate fading and subtle green undertones of the jean help pull the trendy look together and make it wearable for work, school or play.
A human boyfriend? Please. We promise that these boyfriends will never break your heart. Rag & Bone does it right with subtle distressing and just the right amount of cuff (we absolutely love the higher cuff on these guys.) Whether you’re dressing for comfort on a Monday morning or feeling sassy on a Saturday night, these versatile bad boys will transform along with you. Lizzie is wearing the Rag & Bone Boyfriend in Moss.
The ’70s called…they said they love your bleached denim. Dark jeans may be essential, but as the days get brighter, so should our jeans. With this look, we’re keeping distressing to a minimum with subtle bleaching and zero rips. Make like Todd, and wear these light washed Nudie Tape Teds in Indigo Blench with a dark chunky sweater – it is the perfect first step in your transition from dark winter attire to lighter summer duds.
