This Magic Pair Of Levi’s Fit Me When I Was Four Months Pregnant Snd When I Was Not Pregnant St All

nyfw-ss17-day5-005-comp-1508938573
There's an awkward phase of pregnancy when the period of time during which you're not supposed to tell anyone you're pregnant (the first three to four months) overlaps with the period in which your body starts to look a little pregnant but not pregnant enough that it's obvious you're pregnant. You just look a little bigger. You feel a little less like yourself because you are, you know, growing another person inside you. It was during this time that I found my savior jeans: Levi's 721 high rise. I'd had them forever but never worn them. They were a part of the growing pile of "things under my desk" that I looked at daily, felt ashamed about, and ignored. I re-discovered...

Denim Production Is Incredibly Wasteful. Thses Eco-Friendly Jeans Are Breaking The Cycle

23750010-1505917312
Jeans. We all love and own multiple pairs of them. But it’s no secret that fashion remains one of society’s most environmentally destructive industries due to the volume and frequency at which we consume and throw away garments. To keep up with this demand, most clothing companies aim to produce as much as possible for as little money as possible—and that often comes at the expense of nature. Denim manufacturing is notoriously wasteful. It takes a hell of a lot more water than you think to make a pair of jeans: approximately 1,500 gallons to grow the cotton alone, notwithstanding the gallons used for achieving the perfect rinse in the finishing process. Luckily, brands like AYR are starting to break the cycle. Coinciding with...

So, Topshop are trying to make suspender jeans happen

405

What do you think?

Earlier this summer Topshop tried to convince us that plastic jeanswere all the rage - Twitter hilariously weren't having any of it - but it turns out Topshop are now over plastic see through jeans, and it's all about the suspender jeans.

The tapered mom jeans, priced at £85, are now on the shopping site, and do you know what, we're not mad. But we are a little perplexed - scratching our heads. The plastic jeans sold out, so we're predicting this might happen with these, too! In the description section it says "the super striking suspender detail looks great paired with a laid-back long sleeve. Team with trainers for a casual twist." Will you brave enough to try this...

Minimal basics are the building blocks at Everlane. You might think that after the brand launched in 2011 with high-quality, sustainably made, low-cost tees, denim would’ve been the next logical step. But think again. In the seven years since its founding, Everlane has cracked the code on well-made leather bags, shoes, knits, pants, blouses, and dresses. Denim has remained the white whale of the essentials empire. Now that’s changing. On September 7, after two years of research and design, Everlane will launch its first styles of jeans. Retailing at $68 a pair, they’re sustainably made from 2 percent stretch Japanese denim at Saitex factory in Vietnam. “We launched with...

Are Mom Jeans Actually Made For Moms? One Mom’s Investigation

landscape-1502472776-elle-index-mom-jeans
I believe myself to be able to maintain a healthy distance from the tides of fashion. In recent years I've said no to ubiquitous trends like moto jackets, which scan too costumey on me, and "cold shoulder" tops, which I fail to comprehend on an aesthetic or conceptual level. Did that leave me with approximately seven shouldered tops to contemplate purchasing in the past year? Absolutely. I won't give in. But don't mistake this obstinance for a need to be different; I'm quite content to look like everyone else when I like what everyone else is wearing. Take, for example, my rising fascination with the popular, and somewhat broad, category of denim labelled as "mom jeans," which imbue their wearers with...

Are You Ready To Wear Low-Rise Jeans Again?

For seasons, flattering high-waisted jeans in their many incarnations – skinny, Mom, boyfriend, kickflare – have ruled our off-duty wardrobes. But in the latest fashion casualty of Noughties nostalgia, the ultra low-rise jean appears to be making an unwelcome comeback.
Cast your mind back to the early 2000s when Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Rihanna's after-dark uniforms consisted of hip-hugging bootleg jeans teamed with extreme crop tops and pointed kitten heels.
If not, we're sure you can recall the moment Keira Knightley showed off her entire torso at a Pirates of the Caribbean movie premiere in a pair of low-slung, dark-hued jeans and the tiniest off-the-shoulder top we'd ever seen. It fast became one of the most iconic fashion moments of the decade.
