National Denim Day 2022

It is National Denim Day 2022, and this is a national, fashion-related day, which is important to stop and think about. Back in 1998, an Italian court overturned an assault conviction because the victim had worn tight jeans. This is the classic “blame the victim” strategy we have been hearing for centuries. It doesn’t matter what you are wearing, and if you are outside accidently without anything on, then it still doesn’t matter. No-one has the right to touch you, or worse. Without consent, it is a crime.

Therefore, today is the day to rock those jeans! You don’t have to wear tight ones, not everyone owns tight jeans nor has the ability to withstand tight jeans all day. I know I don’t! My jeans are loose! So, put on your favorite pair of jeans, loose or tight, or in-between, and wear them with pride all day long to help raise awareness to this issue.

Despite stemming from a court ruling in 1998, this is a problem we still deal with now, in 2022. This is why National Denim Day is important. We need to continue to raise awareness to this issue and change the mindset of our population. It doesn’t matter what you wear, no-one has the right to touch you. Case closed.

Colored denim is back! Can you remember the last time there was a colored denim trend? I sure can’t! It seems like it’s been a few decades?! Well, this is one denim trend I am very excited about. It adds pops of fun color to our wardrobes. Stay tuned, there will be pastels and bright colors coming out in the next couple of months for us all to crave and add to our wardrobes. Love that!

Right now, the colored denim on store shelves is trending towards neutral hues such as beige, brown, military green, white (more of a staple than color), and bright pink. The bright pink is a clue that other colors are coming soon!

As you know, happy colors are in this year. So, you might already be stocking up on key wardrobe essentials in your favorite hues. Be sure to add colored denim to your shopping list, because any color is hot this year! You can rock neutral colors such as the pair I am wearing in this post, or fun colors such as green, pink, blue, yellow, and orange. Yes, orange! Orange is a HOT color this year! Get ready!

The colored denim trend transcends denim styles. This is good news because you can wear colored denim in the style of your choice. If wide leg jeans are your thing, there will be colors in wide leg! If you prefer classic cuts, skinny cuts, girlfriend cuts, or boyfriend cuts, there will be colors for you in those styles too! Love that!

I wore these classic cut, beige jeans to Santana Row last week and enjoyed lunch at EMC Seafood. They literally have the best clam chowder in the south bay. No joke. It’s amazing. If you have not tried it yet, you are missing out. Run, don’t walk, to EMC and grab a bowl of clam chowder!

Of course, I ate more than just clam chowder! haha. I split the fried zucchini and parmesan truffle fries with my mom, and also indulged in a sushi roll; with truffle on top! Yum!

These classic cut jeans were very comfortable, and the denim is soft to the touch. Love! I also plan on rocking the classic cut, boyfriend, and girlfriend cuts this year. The wide leg is OK on me, but I feel a little bit short to really do it justice. Also, flares are making a comeback, but I am not sure I am ready to rock this trend again. It still feels dated to me, but I am sure I will eat my words and start wearing it again soon. haha

Wondering which denim cuts are hot in 2022? Well, there are a lot! Look for classic cut, “mom” jeans, flares, wide leg, boyfriend, girlfriend, and the dreaded low rise. Yes, that’s correct. The low rise, is on the rise! Silhouette-wise, it’s not actually rising, unfortunately. It’s sitting low on the hips. Get ready. If you despise this rise, stock up on jeans now, before designers start going low, and flood store shelves with the dreaded low rise. Yikes!

What do you think of the current denim trends, and the rebirth of the colored denim trend for 2022? Are you going to rock it? Which colors are on your wish list? I’m thinking green, pink, maybe saturated bright blue?!

Late summer casual

california casual street style san jose

Wearing: sunglasses / white drop earrings / fall lipstick / stripe tee (under $50) / black hobo bag / gemstone bracelets (local San Jose designer!) / fall nail polish / snake buckle belt / fall jeans / grey boat shoes /

Recognize this tee? It has been one of my favorite go-to tee’s of the season! It’s very soft and comfortable, plus, the puff sleeves make it right on trend. The runways were full of statement and puff sleeves, so this tee is fabulous for everyday wear. Love that!

I wore my favorite tee to go out to lunch with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should be Fun. My outfit combines some fall items with a few summer items for a transition from summer into fall look. Dawn did the same thing, and she looks fabulous! As you can see, street style here in California offers up an on-trend tee paired with destroyed jeans, in a fall color, and a fabulous IT bag.

Dawn and I met at Valley Fair mall to check out what’s coming in for fall, and also to enjoy a yummy lunch. We ate at King’s Fish House and enjoyed sushi, edamame, and soup. Love!

In addition to delicious food and checking out the new fall merchandise, Valley Fair had an Instagram-ready, vintage van set up outside the restaurant. Um, did they know we were coming? We were so excited! As you can tell, we used it as our backdrop for a few pictures. We made sure to stand “purse first” so you could see which IT bags are hot in Silicon Valley right now. Seriously, YSL and Prada are EVERYWHERE on the street here!
