Denim report: W staffers' favorite jeans
Wearing your jeans at work is not just a Casual Friday thing here at W. Although we’re seeing the wider-leg styles here and there, we must admit that slim silhouettes—in a range of fits and washes—still have the edge around these parts. Here’s what some of our fashion staff is currently feeling the blues for:
Treena Lombardo, Market Director, likes the Shane style from Genetic Denim in Silver (above). “Not only is gray my favorite color,” says Treena of the slim-cut jeans, “But these are also super soft.” $188 at Barneys.com
Our Bookings Editor, Rena Lazaros, is skinny jean devotee who says she cares mostly about the shade of denim. “Dark is key,” she says of her favorite Levi’s Low Skinny 531 jeans in Black Sheen. $69 at us.levi.com
Fashion Writer Jessica Iredale and I are in agreement about our favorite new discovery, Blue Notch denim (above). We like the washes, featherweight fabrics and fit. The denim comes from the same mill as Balenciaga and Chanel’s denim. $145-175 at Barneys New York and RevolveClothing.com.
We also checked with the guys on our team. Fashion Assistant Garrett Munce loves “The Skinny” jean from Current / Elliott. “Although I’m a tried and true Levi’s and Diesel fan, I’m into Current / Elliott’s ripped jeans for a more casual weekend look.” Available at Bergdorf Goodman and Ron Herman.
Meanwhile, Accessories Assistant William Kahn is a fan of Acne denim: both the Lanvin Acne collection and the Acne “Stay” jean (above) in Skip wash. The Acne Lanvin pair, he says, is “a little more polished and with a higher waist.” Available at Shop.acnestudios.com
