The classic blue denim on denim is so effortless and cool. We promise it is ok to wear mismatched or even matching denim pieces.

Edgy Patchwork

Patchwork isn’t just for quilting. Different shades and washes of denim pieces together gives you the DIY look without having to break out the sewing machine. Repurposed denim is cool not only because it looks awesome and lived in but you’re  also being environmentally conscious. Double bonus!

Denim at work? Duh!

Denim is no longer just for casual friday. Dress up a chambray or denim blouse with a navy pencil skirt and heels, or make your look more work appropriate with a ladylike denim pencil skirt.

Flirty Date Night

This vest and dress in the same denim shade look like they were made for each other, just like you and your sweetheart will when you wear this look out!

Denim for the Dudes

Guys can totally rock denim on denim too, in fact, gals are constantly stealing their favorite guy’s jeans (hence boyfriend jeans!) from their closets because they are just so cool. Pair some tattered pants with a denim jacket, shirt around the waist  and converse for a 90′s throwback.

Denim Duds all Dressed Up

How stylish is it to see a guy rocking a chambray shirt and tie with black pants? Well groomed meets rugged. Need we say more? 10-1-14 FF GMT 449Photo Courtesy of Randy Anderson 

 

 

Denim has come a long way since its invention and introduction to fashion and with so many ways to wear it we sure are happy these blue best buds of ours are here to stay!

 All about the neck

Turtle necks and funnel neck sweaters are what needs to be around your neck this fall.  Pair it with a sleek pant and you are oh so chic! Maybe just leave the dickies and mock turtlenecks in the back of your closet?

Winter Pretty Pastels

Winter white now has some friends with confectious candy coated hues hitting the garment racks this Fall and Winter. You can transition that lavender piece from Spring by pairing it with something warm and voila, you have a whole new look for a whole new season.

Monogrammed Scarves, shirts, and accessories

Are you ever worried you’ll forget your own initials? Well probably not, but maybe you are super proud of them and want the world to know! Either way, we can all take a cue from the Burberry capes and get some of our favorite accessories and even sweater monogrammed with those special letters.

Robe Coats

What is more glamorous and symbolic of the colder months then a long thick coat? Nothing! They are practical and so stylish and the colors options are endless; camel, black, red? One of each?

Fringed Friends

Fringe is here to stay and we are so happy about that we are adding a little sway to our step so everyone around can see our fringe jackets and purses move to the rhythm of our walk. Fringe can be placed on so many different pieces this fall but we love it on a dress or crop jacket to add to the drama of living on the “fringe of society”.

Geometric Kaleidiscopic Prints

Squares, Octogons, diamonds, rhombuses? Geo prints are like wearing something technologically advanced without all the wires and buttons; super sharp lines and edges in great shapes.  You can rock these cool prints head to toe or simply one piece at a time.

BIONIC YARN


tumblr_nacdkaNFl61thflpzo1_1280

“We don’t ever know whats next, we just know what feels right.”
- Pharrell Williams

What Can’t this Man do?

That is the question I ask myself every time I see his name in the media. Last week Williams launched a permeant collaboration with GStar. He Named his line Raw For The Oceans.

Raw for the Oceans isn’t described as “Bionic Yarn” for nothing! Pharrell partnered with G-Star Raw and created denim made of plastic from the Ocean. They turned recyclables into thread for fabric. There is is no way from the naked eye you would be able to tell! He turned plastic into shorts, pants, jackets and made a print using his unique Octopus recycle symbol.

He even Painted  “Raw for the Ocean,” onto a pair of ripped jeans. As well as “Happy Oceans Happy Life” on a Tee!

How many Artists dress you, while saving the world? My only answer at this moment is Pharrell!

GSTAR
