Denim Trends You Haven’t Tried: 7 for All Mankind

Posted by    |    May 9th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Denim-it’s in all of our closets, and if someone was peeking into yours, I bet they’d see a short row of different shades of blue, black, or white jeans of varying cuts and styles.  Let’s be real-jeans have become an acceptable uniform for many workplaces, schools, and even church.  So why aren’t there more options to dress up the classics?

7 for All Mankind has always been a brand that exudes relaxed, Southern California style, so it isn’t much of a surprise that they have been taking the lead when it comes to denim trends and making them accessible for everyone from James Franco to your mother.  (Speaking of James Franco, have you seen 7′s spring campaign, “Episodes of an Untitled Film” with James Franco directing a series of short films? Very sexy.) 

According to Liat Mazor, the Marketing Manager for 7, ” The new spring line is inspired by a California vibe, a forever cool idea inspired by the glistening sun and the ocean. You’ll see a lot of shimmer, pastels, and brights. “  Glittery, shimmery jeans aren’t a new thing, but the way 7 for All Mankind does them is.

Where other jeans may have a heavy, tacky feel to them (since they are loaded with shimmer or actual glitter,) these new lustre jeans are light as a feather and soft to boot.  The shimmer is subtle, pretty, and daytime acceptable, which means you don’t have to wait for drinks at the club to wear these babies. The Cut Off Jean in Peach is lovely.

Though shimmer jeans aren’t the hot new item on the men’s fashion side, what is new and cool is a slightly griege  jean (it’s called Stone), for a man who wants to be on trend.  Worn with a faded, broken in denim shirt, these jeans could seriously become a guy’s favorite new classic.

On to the patterns.  You may be confused how to wear patterned denim, but it’s simpler than it looks.  With these Diamond print skinnies, a gray or white tee can dress it up or down, and gives you the freedom to play with fun accessories. Or, you can be bolder by mixing prints in the same color-oddly enough, they don’t complete and look fab together!

Floral patterns and embroidery are a look that 7 uses to keep denim lovers inspired.  Where else can you find soft as butter denim with stitch-work like this? Try the Crop Roxanne Original Skinny in Pink Embroidery.

Last, but certainly not least, you need to check out the patchwork denim in bright colors.  Pair these with gorgeous wedges or heels for a night out. You should feel happier by just looking at these!
