Upgrade Your Jean Pool

dress_dad

Guys, now that summer is coming to a close you’re going to have to rethink your morning get-up-and-go routine. What I mean is, kicking through your Taco Bell and Red Bull debris to find your least soiled  trunks and tees won’t pass muster anymore. The fall season always brings a heightened expectation of what’s considered appropriate about-town wear, and a good-fitting pair of jeans will be your #1 staple. Seriously, a solid pair of denim pants can be counted on more regularly than Christian Fletcher hitting up a 2-for-1 night in a Balinese tavern. But with the wide variety of cuts and styles available, selecting the right fit for your kit can get confusing. Not to worry, the blogger hotties at Breezy Mama have got the low down on what you need to throw down, with one of their top choices being Hurley’s Cleveland jean. Click here for the whole shebang.

How To: Get the MOST from Your New Flannel

5 WAYS TO WEAR THE SEASON’S TOP TREND

flannel
We know you’ve bought one (or 2 or 9) flannel or plaid shirt this Summer. If you haven’t, you will. Unless you’re allergic to cotton, you’ll be wearing this season’s favorite flannel every chance you get. You’ll soon discover, if you have not already, that you’ll find yourself in need of a way to keep your flannels looking fresh every time you show up to homeroom wearing one. Here’s a guide to different ways you can wear your preferred plaid to keep it looking new:

1. Wear it now: Lightweight plaid shirts are a perfect beach cover-up. If you follow the logic, this makes perfect sense. Follow here: Summer is the best time for biking, especially to and from the beach to cut-down on parking lot crowds. Hipsters love biking. Hipsters also love flannels. Therefore, flannels must be a Summer favorite. Plus, they look killer when paired with some classic Wayfarers.

2. Wear it Over a Dress: Balance out a cute new dress, that maybe is a bit too nice to wear on a casual night out, with a relaxed flannel. The lightweight shirt is perfect for a cooler Summer night, and the unfussy look takes your dress from overly-cutesy to fashion-forward with a touch of sass.

3. Tuck it into high-waisted skirts and pants: So amazingly 70’s. It’s an ode to Farrah Fawcett. It had a subtle sex-appeal then, just as it does now. Go ahead, try it.

4. Layer it: Look chill, cut the chill. Layer a flannel under a jacket or heavy sweater to jazz up your look with a little colorful print.

5. Wear it as a Dress: Grab some leggings. We know you have some. Add a belt around your natural waist. Bam, dress. Add a boot it if you’re feeling like getting a little Americana on your day. This is all based on your flannel being long-enough to cover your bum. If it isn’t, opt for pants (Survey says: “legging are not pants”).

Get the Look: Nicole Richie

get_the_llok_richie

We love Nicole’s beachy, bohemian style, but hate that it probably cost an entire pay check to get!
Or does it? Get Nicole Richie’s boho-chic look, fringe bag and all, for less than the cost of her left shoe. Our favorite part of this look is that it fits almost any body-type. Yes, she may weight in at  a whopping 90 L-B’s, but no, you don’t have to cut-out your afternoon Pinkberry run to look just as good in her gear. What makes this a trend-setting look are the fold-over ankle boots and oversized shades. So chic!
