[BLANKNYC] designers Emmy Lauridsen and Leigh Brown have taken premium denim jeans into new territory, and the results are as edgy — yet affordable — as they come. From razor-slim “spray on” skinny jeans to wide-leg and flared styles, mid-rise jeans to high-waist cut-off shorts, [BLANKNYC]’s denim is treated with destroyed washes and embellishments such as lengthy leg zippers, spandex, and pyramid studs. Since [BLANKNYC] released its first runaway hit, the Skinnie Classique jean, in 2007, the label has added tops, jackets, skirts, and dresses that put a contemporary spin on classic shapes. With creative style names — the Sexting vest, the Chain Gang jacket — this label is clearly having fun with fashion, and so are its fans.
Ditch the basics this season for something with an element of fun. Casual-chic silhouettes — from flirty shift dresses, mini skirts, skinny jeans, and comfy knits — get a much-needed update with playful details like beading, peplum ruffles, and fringe trim. And there are plenty of prints on hand too: Think graphic florals, earthy tie-dye, and colorblocked brocade motifs.
Add a little edge to your look with pieces from brands like Cut25, L’Agence, and Vanessa Bruno, who have mastered the art of infusing their sophisticated silhouettes with street-chic details. Embrace the city girl's new dress code in silk jumpsuits with leather sleeves, tapered drawstring trousers with railroad stripes, and mod shift dresses with skinny racerbacks and all-over fringe.
