Fade to white

Im usually very boring and plain with my denim, just very particular in general. It has to be very soft and comfy, plus they have to have just the right amount of stretch because no stretch cuts off circulation and too much is just gross. Lately though I've kind of been tempted to break out of my mold.

I saw this pair on shopbop, J Brand Ombre.. kind of a nice summer alternative to light/faded and plain white.
Shopbop, $185

These photos are from MKA's new denim line for Elizabeth & James called Textile. From what I've seen so far it hasn't gotten the greatest reviews, but I kind of love it. I never thought Id like the look of flares again since I left them behind in grade 4. Trust the Olsens to make me like the idea again. The real test will be how they look on, but I really love the syling they did for this guide. The detail is kind of hard to see in these pictures but for the rest of the denim and looks you can view them on intermix's website.

I love jeans and hose are a really great alternative style to the regular old jeans.

I love the jeans that fade! I've never seen anything like them. And I think it would be really cool to see flares come back.
