The Coolest Denim Jeans Out Right Now

We at Mamastyles are always scouting for amazing jeans.  Black cotton leggings pale in the light of  Summer’s newest innovative denim trends!  It’s time to freshen up casual closets with reversible (yes, we said it) denim leggings, essential crops and even a bright, exotic color or two!  Here’s the skinny on denim’s  newest  groundbreaking looks  any mom can wear.

Denim 2-in-1 Best-selling Bleulab double-sided blue, black or grey denim leggings and jeans are the hottest quick-change bottoms out there.  These revolutionary Reversible Detour Leggings at Singer22 do not skimp on style from either end.

A Most Inviting Jean Nicknames like Toothpick and Matchstick might give these basic wash jeans a restricting impression.  We beg to differ; the newest styles by J. Crew work to slim down hips and thighs, not emphasize.  Slim Boy Jeans in beach comb boast the feel of denim that’s been worn a hundred times.. with a clean and easy silhouette, $98 .

It’s A Boy For Rachel Zoe! + Spring/Summer Fashion Picks

Blogs began ringing around the globe (and internet) on March 24 in Los Angeles — celebrity stylist and reality TV star Rachel Zoe and husband/business partner Rodger Berman welcomed a healthy 6 pound, 12-ounce baby boy into their famous family!

Zoe apparently went into labor the day before (rumors were unconfirmed by her public relations) and gave birth to the undoubtedly beautiful Skyler Morrison Berman, whose middle name might honor Doors lead singer Jim Morrison.  The new parents announced in a statement that “Mom and Dad ‘LITERALLY’ could not be happier or more in love with their son!”  Best wishes!

While baby Skyler is indeed expected to be displayed as one of the most fashionable little boys ever made, The Zoe Report’s Bright Ideas bring into the light some highly necessary pieces to add to our own budding wardrobes for Spring.  Even denim jeans ‘spring’ to life with wonderous bursts of head-turning color:
