Jeans for going out, for staying in, tucking in, tucking out; ones to pair with towering heels and some that are perfect with chic little flats...a complete wardrobe of denim for all occasions is a modern must-have, but paying 3-figures per pair for fit & flattery quickly adds up. "I was tired of paying exorbitant prices for premium denim and believed that a great quality jean could be offered for much less," explains Karyn Scholack, the denim-loving fashionista behind Alias Premium Denim who couldn't find the right combination of style, fit and price and decided to DIY.
The Sweet Dee - a dark wash, low rise boot-cut is just the kind of classic, trendproof style basic that both Nina Garcia and Tim Gunn insist no self-respecting closet is without, and priced at $40 per pair, shouldn't be. Available at AliasDenim.com.
