Mike & Chris Denim: Filling The Leather Jacket Void Until It Gets Cold Again

Dark denim is slimming. It's also sensible for a day-to-night change. But one look at the new light, detailed denim from husband-and-wife design team Mike & Chris, and you'll be looking to lighten up, too.

The Darrell Denim Zip Up Hooded Vest ($255) is a twist on the pair's classic hoodie, with waist gathers and buttons that provide structure and fit. It looks great with shorts, but could also go well with a skirt and studded sandals.

Mike & Chris Ritter Japanese Denim Shorts

Denim shorts are a staple of practically any spring or summer closet, but these Ritter Japanese Denim Shorts ($180) with cuffs and front pockets (rather than the dreaded side cargo pockets), are a much more interesting choice.


I've already professed my love for denim jackets this spring, but the Gibson Denim Jacket ($345) is by far my favorite — and worth its hefty pricetag. It has front pockets, oversized tortoise buttons (a nice departure from brass), and whimsical crosshatch detailing.
