Trend Alert: Metallic Jeans
Posted 2 years ago by Amanda Raye
I happend to walk by Rag & Bone earlier today and what did I see in the display window? Metallic jeans! At first I wasn’t 100% positive I liked them. But sure enough, a girl in Soho was rockin’ a pair in gold. Will this be the hot new thing this summer? They’re perfect for a night out, and will definitely make you stand out in a crowd!
Rag & Bone Metallic Jeans
Let the jeans do all the talking. Pair them with a simple black or white top and simple yet sexy heels. Add a black blazer for a more professional feel. If you don’t care for the jeans, try a pretty metallic skirt instead!

Where to Buy
To find a Broke & Chic friendly pair you’re going to have to keep an eye out. H&M and Topshop would both be great places to start. If you’re okay with spending more than $40 try ASOS, Zara and Joe’s Jeans. Happy shopping!
What’s your honest opinion on this up and coming trend? Could you ever see yourself wearing a pair of metallic pants? Let us know in the comments below.
Gap’s New S/S 2012 “Be Bright” Campaign
Posted 2 years ago by Amanda Raye
Gap, the casual American retailer known for their affordability and quality has just launched their new Spring/Summer line this past week. Headed with the title “Be Bright.”
Gap’s “Be Bright” Spring/Summer collection encourages you to have fun with color and to have fun with fashion. From candy colored jeans and khakis to bright and fun trenches. Their new collection allows you to let loose so your true colors can shine through! It’ll be a breath of fresh air when we start seeing ladies and gents sporting jeans in colors other than blue and red!
“Be Bright speaks to what has always been the heart and soul of Gap—casual American style that’s relevant for today and rooted in optimism,” said Seth Farbman, Gap’s Global Chief Marketing Officer. “We’ve been infusing a new energy and confidence into our product and how we express who we are to our customer. It started with our 1969 jeans and premium black pants and continues this spring with our colored denim and khakis.”
Why is Gap’s new campaign worth talking about? Styld.by – a first-of-its-kind digital collaboration between Gap and six well-respected fashion and lifestyle blogs including Refinery29, WhoWhatWear, FabSugar, Lookbook, Rue and MOG. Using clothes from the new collection, each of the six partners styled unique looks from their point of view. The looks will live on the partners’ sites within a Gap branded experience where people can get style inspiration, learn about the products featured, and click to purchase right from the experience.
This is truly the future of online shopping, with Gap leading the way! The idea of a large retailer working with bloggers to create an online shopping experience is amazing!
Styld.by is an evolutionary way to take the idea of a traditional catalog and deliver it in a way that encourages people to engage with it in a place where they’re already spending their time, like fashion blogs and music sites. By asking our partners to curate our favorite pieces in a way that’s relevant to them, we’re giving consumers more than just our point of view,” added Farbman.
