Trend Report: Motorcycle Jeans

In denim trends, the motorcycle jean is currently the leader of the pack (vroom vroom). The style was seen in the Balmain A/W 2009 collection, and since that runway sighting, has been the choice pick for trend-setting celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Shenae Grimes, and Rihanna (pictured above respectively). A slew of other celebs are wearing them as well including Nikki Hilton, Kate Hudson, and as we showed you recently, Katie Holmes.

The motorcycle jean is both edgy and form-flattering thanks to it’s padded knee and piping detail. They can be worn casually, like Diaz, with a sweater or dressed up like Grimes with a chic blazer.

We recommend the Current/Elliott Moto Skinny in Nightwash ($240). They are incredibly comfortable and the perfect selection for rocking the motorcycle trend.

Get The Look: Taylor Momsen

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen is the poster-child for glam rocker-chic style. Perhaps it’s natural for her seeing as she’s the singer in her rock band, Pretty Reckless. Momsen seems to adopt her ‘reckless’ attire from stage in her everyday street attire—a choice that seems uncalculated, which of course makes her look even cooler. Momsen pairs tough, tattered items with one or two girlie touches to keep from looking too haphazard, like the outfit above seen recently on the set of GG.

To recreate her look, we first selected the actual jeans she was wearing:

1. Current/Elliott Shredded Skinny in Night Wash ($240) – Ripped denim looks effortlessly cool and sharp in black—these Current/Elliott pair are one of the actress’ favorites.
2.  Madison Marcus Adorn Jacket ($438) – Momsen adds a little girlie-glitz by layering a sequined jacket underneath a shorter, more casually-finished jacket. This Madison Marcus jacket will pop underneath a black jacket.
3. Current/Elliott Majorette Jacket in Night Wash ($284) – Choose a casual jacket like this cropped jacket to layer over your sequin piece to tone down its dressy nature. The cotton material will soften the look while keeping it edgy.
4. K.Allyn Pocket Tank in Grey ($52) – Last for your bottom layer, choose a neutral-hued tank like Momsen to serve as a canvas for the jacket combo.

As Seen On: Katie Holmes

If you spend any time at all lurking online peeking at celeb photos, chances are you’ve seen the trendiest celebrities wearing Current/Elliott jeans. Just this month, we showed you such fans Rihanna and Kim Kardashian

While the brand has their iconic boyfriend jeans, Katie Holmes stood out in the pack of Current/Elliott clad starlets in The Moto Skinny Jeans in Night Wash ($240). Aptly named, they are a nod to motorcycle-style pants with slim-fitting, knee-pad-like seaming that looks unique and on-trend. Go on—get yourself a pair now!

Every Girl Needs A Stud

The beginning of September is right around the corner, signaling the crucial time in fashion when one must transition from one season to the next.  When summer was all about bright florals and vintage inspired silk dresses, fall takes an edgier turn with the focus on studs.  Whether the trim on a sexy pair of heels, or sandals for those of us living here in Southern California, the leg-lining on a super sexy pair of jeans, like the ones offered by Current/Elliott, or just a smattering of studs on a high waist belt, this is a trend that’s as fun to wear as it is sexy.
