Clearly, this isn't a very practical fall outfit (even though we are having SoCal-esque weather here in Kansas). This post is all about denim--the fabric that transcends all seasons. From shorts to jackets, I think it's safe to say that denim is a staple in everyone's closet. Denim is hotter than ever right now. Instagram is covered with double denim ensembles, and one can never forget the destroyed denim thigh high boots worn by Kim Kardashian. The right denim takes your style to the next level.
Enter one of my favorite brands, One Teaspoon. This Australian company is self-styled as "fantastically rebellious, sex-infused old school rock 'n' roll glamour." I don't really need any reason beyond that description to love the brand. The fits of their denim remain true to this styling. Shredded destruction, frayed mini-length hemlines and low-slung rises show some skin and make the fits very sexy. At the same time, the look is still laid-back and casual since most styles are cut to fit on the baggy side.
Some of the styles One Teaspoon offers are very cutting-edge with drop-crotch features or unique washes. Since the pieces are relatively expensive, I like to stick to the more classic, staple silhouettes. The boyfriend jeans pictured above are One Teaspoon Awesome Baggies in Cobain wash. The color is perfect and the boyfriend fit is that hard-to-find combo of loose and tight in the flattering places. However, my absolute all-time favorite product are the One Teaspoon Bandit shorts. I have these in two different colors and they are the best! The rolled hem and slightly baggy cut is so flattering (makes your legs look thinner!). I have bandits in Hendrix and Frost washes. In the past, I've also had Cobain and Fox Black washes, but they were too short for me. That is one critique I have for One Teaspoon--the cut of a pair of shorts isn't always consistent, even though size and style are the same. However, this is not entirely a drawback as it just goes to show how unique each piece is!
At this point, you probably want to snag up some One Teaspoon for yourself! Even though the company is based in Australia, they now have a North American distribution center so you don't have to wait weeks for shipping if you shop their site. Many other online boutiques carry the brand such as Nasty Gal, Revolve and Nordstrom. Amazon even carries a selection of One Teaspoon, sometimes at amazing prices! If the price tag is a bit much for you, check out eBay. I know I say it all the time, but I have had great luck finding One Teaspoon through a saved search on eBay.
Below are some of my current favorites from the One Teaspoon site. Whether you are looking for a statement wash, staple boyfriend jean, or your go-to pair of shorts, the Aussie denim geniuses at One Teaspoon will have you covered!
