Inspired By: Denim on Denim

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is all about denim---and lots of it! The territory of double denim has really come a long way from an unfortunate fashion faux pas only charted by the very brave (or style deficient) to becoming an easy go-to for the stylish set. 

When it comes to our beloved denim: the more the merrier!

Check out our take on this denim-on-denim look:

4 Denim Brands You Need to Know in 2014

With the start of every new year comes a certain longing for renewal, and sometimes this manifests itself to a return to basics—a simple decluttering of the closet perhaps, or investing in wardrobe pieces that serve a multitude of options. Jeans definitely fit into this “indispensable staples” category, and are truly worth spending a little more time and money on to get that perfect fit for your body.

Today, we’re highlighting four of our denim superstars that we think you (and your wardrobe) should get acquainted with this year:

The line was developed in Los Angeles by a team of leading denim designers and is manufactured exclusive at the brand's own manufacturing facilities. It is "born and bred" exclusively in Los Angeles from design to sewing to the wash process.
