British super model and face of the PAIGE brand, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, was caught making her way through LAX Airport in Los Angeles, California after arriving a little while ago on a flight in from New York, where she attended the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards.
For her flight, Rosie chose a pair of the PAIGE Hoxton Ankle Skinny Jeans in Unfinished Edge to pair with a satin floral bomber, some black sandals and a Celine bag. I think the Hoxton is one of the best fits on Rosie as the higher rise is extremely flattering on her figure. I’m also a huge fan of the raw hem trend (learn how to DIY raw hem jeans here) so I think these jeans combine everything I would look for in a light blue skinny jean at the moment, even down to the fancy seam detailing on the top of the front pockets.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has an amazing personal style. Both her and Olivia Palermo have a dress sense that is perfect – they are my style icons. I also love that Rosie adores PAIGE, not just because she’s the face of the brand, but because the brand is one that suits her and she feels connected to. Much like I do, I adore PAIGE as they are one of the brands I started working with in the beginning, I’ve done collaboration Lorna jeans with them, and Paige herself is one of the sweetest people. If you haven’t yet tried PAIGE Denim, you have to! Buy these PAIGE Hoxton Jeans in Unfinished Edge online here. Do you like them?

Gigi Hadid’s younger sister, Bella Hadid, was pictured while leaving The Nice Guy with some friends in West Hollywood, California last week. Bella is 19 years old, while her sister, Gigi, is 21. These two gorgeous sisters remind me of the Cara and Poppy Delevingne relationship, with both of them modelling together. Both Gigi and Bella are huge fans of denim though and we often see Gigi much more than we do Bella, but this time it’s not about her!
Bella wore an all blue, cool toned outfit, choosing the new FRAME Le Mix Jeans in Remix, which she paired with a cropped baby blue sweater, a Dior bag and some silver Christian Louboutin heels. When I first saw these FRAME Le Mix Jeans a while ago, I thought they were so inventive and unique. The different patchwork of the shades of blue denim, combined with a wonky, stepped hem, just makes them incredibly cool. They aren’t jeans that I ever thought I would wear myself, but after seeing how easily Bella has styled them here, I’m intrigued. I think FRAME Denim did a fantastic job with these jeans.
The classic skinny jean has taken a back seat quite heavily over the past few months, with mom jeans riding at the forefront, but the cropped straight leg jeans or cropped flares are hugely popular as well. I think these FRAME Le Mix Jeans are the perfect blend of cropped, straight, boyfriend jeans with a higher rise, but in a much more flattering and modern fit. The patchwork and repaired trend is also having its moment, so I’m really glad that FRAME have designed this particular pair. I can’t fault them in anyway! What do you think about these jeans? You can buy them online at Shopbop for $449. (more…)
The stunning Australian model, Miranda Kerr, posed for some photographs while arriving at Narita International Airport in Chiba, Japan a couple of days ago. She got caught by the waiting paparazzi and adoring fans, so she decided to let them have a few shots while she smiled and looked beyond cheerful.
Miranda has always had such a chic and classic personal style. It’s always reminded me of the Parisian woman, but with a sense of casual to it, paying homage to her Australian roots. Her clothing choices always have that perfect blend of the two, marrying a combination that works endlessly whenever we see her outfits. I never get tired of them, especially when they involve denim.
Miranda tends to favour the high rise skinny jean in dark washes. Over the past few years, we have often seen her gravitating towards her Nobody Cult Skinny Jeans (an Australian favourite) and her Citizens of Humanity Rocket Skinny Jeans (my personal favourite), both in dark blue washes, but now she’s added these brand new Parker Smith Bombshell Skinny Jeans in Empire to her collection! These jeans feature a 10.5″ rise, an inseam of 29″ and a leg opening of 10″, so you can tell they are the perfect high rise skinny jean which hits at the ankle – just what Miranda adores.
Getting to her outfit, Miranda styled her Parker Smith Jeans with a cropped white t-shirt and a long nude duster coat, layered over her shoulders. She finished the look off with some black patent pumps, a black tote bag and some black sunglasses. I think this entire outfit is gorgeous, in every way possible. It’s perfect for flying as it has comfortable elements to it, but it’s made much more glamorous with her choice in accessories. Not to mention, the fit of these Parker Smith Bombshell Jeans on her figure is beyond perfect. Don’t you agree? High rise skinny jeans are her gold dust! You can buy these jeans online at Parker Smith for $175 or similar high rise, dark blue skinny jeans online at Shopbop.

As mentioned in the women’s denim round up for June, we would be doing the men’s jeans choices separately and will continue to do so from now on, so there’s dedicated posts to each of you, making it much more easier and efficient to look through. So guys, here’s my personal top 10 jeans choices for you this month, from the new in styles.
I have kept things quite classic, just choosing shades of blue, grey, black and then opting for a fresh white too, just for these warmer days. Distressing plays a key role in jeans during this time of year, so I have made sure to include a couple of ripped denim options. Most of these fits are skinny or slim as they tend to be the most popular for men these days (which pleases me) and they suit summer footwear perfectly.
So we have jeans from DSquared2, Diesel, Citizens of Humanity, Rag & Bone, Levi’s and Cheap Monday here, making sure there’s varying price ranges, as well as styles. Plus, I’ve even included some Jogg Jeans for extra comfort. Guys, what are your favourite jeans choices for June? I would love to know what new pairs you have bought, or are planning on buying! Let me know in the comments below.

The tallest third of the Kardashian trio, Khloe Kardashian, is making her first appearance here on The Jeans Blog. The reality TV star was pictured while doing some clothes shopping in Woodland Hills, California a little while ago. The paparazzi get everywhere don’t they? Even through the windows of boutiques while celebrities are trying on new clothes.
For her shopping trip, Khloe Kardashian looked put together and summery in her TOPSHOP Moto Jamie Skinny Jeans. I think the choice in styling these jeans with a Cosabella Nude Body Suit and then pops of purple with the Tom Ford Ankle Lock Pumps and House of CB Fabienne Satin Trench Coat was perfect. Khloe has the right mix of pastel tones here to make it season appropriate, but the rips in her jeans and the black tote bag dial it down a notch from being too feminine. Plus, the nude body suit is quite sexy, so it stays away from the girly territory, while the Victoria Beckham Sunglasses finish it off.
This is an outfit that I adore from Khloe. I’ve always thought her ensembles looked much the same, just with varying pieces here and there, but this whole outfit stands out to me. It’s actually beautiful and I would wear something similar to this myself if I could, with the ripped skinny jeans and satin trench coat. It’s the perfect blend of casual, sexy and feminine.
It’s always nice to see just how much Khloe loves her TOPSHOP Jamie Jeans too! We have seen her in these (and the black pair) so many times now, I’ve personally lost count. It just goes to show that when you love a pair of jeans, you can’t get enough of them and want to wear them everywhere you go. Plus, they fit her perfectly, which is nice to see for a non premium denim brand that doesn’t focus religiously on fit. Do you like Khloe’s outfit and her TOPSHOP Jamie Jeans?

American blonde bombshell and supermodel, Gigi Hadid, was pictured out and about in New York City with a girl friend while running some errands. We see Gigi in candid snaps all the time and she’s such a natural beauty, but one thing that always stands out for me, every time I see her, is her personal style. Even her casual and dressed down days are perfect!
This leads me to Gigi’s outfit here. She decided to wear a pair of UNRAVEL Lace Up Front Leather Skinny Pants which she styled with a MOTHER + Jacquie Aiche Collaboration Denim Shirt and a pair of Adidas Superstars. All finished off with a little black tote bag and some silver mirrored sunglasses, ideal for spending some time in New York City.
These Lace Up Front Leather Pants from UNRAVEL are a newer style as we have mostly seen the Lace Up Flared version which has been extremely popular. I can’t wait for these to become more widely available online (buy the denim version at FWRD here) as I’m sure we will be spotting numerous different celebrities out in this particular pair now that Gigi has shown how amazing they look. Some people might think they are too much with the lace up fly and the hip/ankle zippers all in one pant, but they are fantastic and Gigi shows that. These UNRAVEL leather pants can be styled any way.
Leather pants and denim shirts is always a combination that I am fond of personally, so I’m excited to see that Gigi chose such a fun denim shirt to go with a fun pair of pants. The MOTHER + Jacquie Aiche collaboration is one that has caught the eye of many people. The motifs and embroideries on the denim shirts are quirky, fun and entertaining, but they keep the stylish and classic element that MOTHER is known for, making it a match made in heaven. So even though there are smart aspects to this outfit, it’s casual too which means the Adidas sneakers are the perfect choice in footwear.
Gidi Hadid truly does have a winning personal style and I can’t recall seeing a look of hers that has ever looked bad, in my opinion. She knows how to get the right fits, how to play with different cuts and make them work for her shape. She knows how to keep her clothes feminine with the right mix of masculine. I love the fact that experimentation and trying such a diverse range of denim from brands all over the price scale is something she’s into. It just goes to show how much she adores denim and loves trying new things. You can buy similar leather pants and a denim shirt from MOTHER Denim, both online at Shopbop.com.

How amazing are these vintage Levi’s 501 jeans? I found them in Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago in their Urban Renewal section. I always find myself going through the denim there as you can find some of the most gorgeous washes, just like these. As you know, I’m already a huge raw denim fan (and the fact that you get to create your own wash by wearing them in), but that does take time, so one thing I love is seeing how others have worn in their jeans for years and years, all those decades ago. Leaving some of the most beautiful blues behind that I have ever seen.
This pair of Levi’s 501’s in particular have been worn to the extreme and loved by someone who definitely got up to a lot in them. The lap whiskering and the worn out areas around the pocket and thighs just go to show that. They have rips at the butt and in the knees, all of which have been repaired, and the hems have been chopped off to create a more modern look. I always find with vintage Levi’s that even though I am a modern day 26/27 waist, I have to choose a 32 because the sizes were a lot different back then. These are just a touch big, especially in the legs, but I cuff them up and wear them as boyfriend jeans.
As I am a huge denim addict, washes are something that really spark my interest and I’ve found myself staring at these Levi’s jeans for minutes, just analysing all of the details on them and really looking in depth at the wash detailing and how special they truly are. It might sound strange to some of you out there who aren’t as heavily into jeans, but I’m sure a lot of you will know exactly what I’m talking about! These are by far my favourite vintage jeans that I own. I would love to know if you own any and what they look like! Do you have an amazing vintage denim wash? Please do share them with me!
