It’s always so amazing to me how different each pair of jeans are when the majority of the population still sees a pair of jeans like a typical blue piece of workwear. Premium denim has definitely come a long way since they emerged on the market and blew up in the early 2000s, and of course creativity is one of the major factors that keeps competition real and the best brands on top. Racing stripes are one of those cool designs that I’ve had my eyes on for a long time—I can’t really recall exactly when they became popular but I know it was a few years ago sometime. I’m going to make an educated guess that they came to be around the time activewear as streetwear grabbed hold of the market and gave denim a bit of extra competition! I failed to add a pair of jeans with side stripes for quite awhile, until I got to review the above pair for Mavi. I absolutely love this sporty looking style! It also reminds me of my days in high school marching band…which came to mind when I was coming up with the concept of writing about 21 side stripe skinny jeans to march you through the summer!
Being as obsessed with denim as I am, and having reviewed denim for Denimology and this blog since 2014, I have many denim styles. Of course, the classic blue jean takes up most of them since it’s the most common (and let me say, there’s still a ton of variety), as well as my all time absolute favorite wash, faded black. However, sometimes it’s fun to shake it up a little with a statement piece! Usually the thought of a chunky piece of sparkly jewelry pops up when thinking of such a thing, or maybe some eye catching heels. For me though, I often opt for a fun pair of printed jeans as something different to spice up an outfit when I feel like I’m in a style rut!
It’s finally getting a little warmer here in California, but the cool air and drizzles are still hanging around for a bit! That’s all fine with me, since the green hills are always so fleeting (and already starting to turn brown again) and who knows what this summer will bring. In an attempt to get out of the house more and enjoy the outdoors a bit more, my hubby and I acquired a few kites and went out to Morro Bay for a little sunshine last weekend!
Summer…or Spring. Same difference in several places right? Winter is over and it’s time to warm up. It goes without saying that just about all denim out there is made for year-round wear, but I know white denim isn’t normally trusted in the rainy, muddy months for obvious reasons…unless maybe you’re taking them on a Grecian vacation to escape the cold. White also helps reflect the sun a bit to keep you cooler! If you’re one to never wear white after Labor Day, now’s also the time to stock up on your white denim to get as much wear out of the year as you can (although if you ask me, that rule is pretty bunk and based on archaic, class-based rules that might make you forget it for good). Either way, white denim has a nice ethereal clean look to it, and as a neutral shade it can go with anything to polish off your look. Whether or not you’re afraid of trying white denim, every denim enthusiast should have one or two pieces to shake up your style every now and then for any occasion!
