The Creative Class: Thrashbird

Apr 21, 2017

Wander through the streets of Los Angeles and you’ll probably spot a Clone - a hooded figure slumped over, texting on a phone - discreetly stenciled on the side of a building. You might see graffiti artfully placed on a luxury fashion brand’s billboard while driving, wondering if it’s been placed there intentionally.

PRIMER STYLE GUIDE: DENIM ON DENIM

Feb 12, 2017

When it comes to denim: anything and everything goes.  As everyone knows, denim goes with any and everything. That said, one of the most obvious –– and, at the same time, cautiously avoided –– denim pairings is the infamous denim on denim, “Canadian Tuxedo.” We know, imagery of early-2000s red carpets and MTV scenes evokes a reflexive recoil at anti-nostalgic remembrances of monochromatic style mishaps and monstrosities, but fashion has evolved and with it, the evolution of denim on denim style. A few style guide notes for consideration before your first (or next) take on the Canadian Tux.

HI-FI JEANOMIC: HIGH-WAISTED JEANS STYLE GUIDE

Nov 29, 2016

Rarely does fashion provide a look of feminine rebellion from as modest a cut as the infamous high-waisted jean. If the key to fashion is being conventionally unfashionable, high-waisted jeans are the modern-day opus de mode. It is kind of incredible how such a simple slack can be so practical and polarizing at the same time, and even more impressive is the milieu of ways in which high-waisted jeans have been styled to suit nearly every look on the line.

RIVET, SEAM, AND THE AMERICAN SCENE: A HISTORY OF DENIM

Nov 07, 2016

Denim… No other fabric claims such an inherent bond to individuality, the definitive authenticity of fashion rooted in function: the worker’s wear-and-tear as badges of that bonafide broken-in fade, timeless and priceless even in the modern marketplace. This history transcends race, religion, gender, geography, orientation, hobby, genre, and –– perhaps most-telling of all –– the very notions and structures of class to which denim owes its definitive aesthetic, its working-class cultural gene.

How to Wear All Black

Oct 27, 2016

At DSTLD, we live in black. Black is timeless, black is smart, black is efficient, and black is badass. Wearing black, and other neutral tones, reduces the number of gratuitous choices you need to make in a day. And perhaps above all, black always looks confident and clean. To quote the immortal words of fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto, “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all, black says this: I don’t bother you - you don’t bother me.”The argument about wearing all black, all the time, is that it’s boring. But if you have an eye for strong staple pieces, interesting silhouettes, and varying textures, it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a few tips on how to wear black no matter the season or your budget.Get Your Basics DownAny great closet starts with having the right staple pieces. As we’ve seen from the growing popularity of a capsule wardrobe, keep your foundation pieces simple. This allows for versatile layering and endless combinations. Invest in items like quality tank tops or cotton tees, black skinny jeans (mens | womens), a blazer, moto jacket, a black dress, cardigan and oversized sweater.Womens High Waisted Coated Denim | Womens Muscle Tee in BlackMens Denim Jacket in Worn Black | Men’s Skinny Jeans in Jet BlackTry Some TrendsWearing all black enables you to incorporate some current seasonal pieces without looking over-the-top trendy. Since trends usually incorporate new silhouettes, black is the perfect canvas because you know your new trendy piece will go with everything in your closet, rather than having to buy three new items to make one outfit work. But use discretion; don’t buy Culottes if you will never, ever wear them. Instead try black flare jeans for a modern twist on your teen self’s go-to.Basic Doesn’t Mean BoringSure, dressing in a monochrome manner can be boring, but it doesn’t have to be. Incorporate statement pieces and mix up your textures. Try adding in fur, cotton slub, chunky knits, leather or coated fabrics, lace, silk tops, etc.DSTLD option: Women High Waisted Coated Skinny Jean.Let Fit and Fabric Set the ToneJust because you’re wearing all black, it doesn’t mean you’re dressed appropriately for every occasion. It’s also important to pay attention to fit and fabric. Incorporating different structural details and fabrics help dictate how formal your outfit is. Just because you’re wearing a slimming color doesn’t mean you should wear shapeless pieces, or pieces that are ill fitting. Use the opportunity to wear a structured pant, waist cinching dress, or tailored blazer. Styles that frame your shape speak to a more formal setting, while slouchy layers read casual.DSTLD Option: Womens Mid Rise Ripped Skinny.AccessorizeSporting neutral tones means you’re working with a blank canvas. Use the opportunity to add vintage jewelry or a belt, a statement purse or shoes, or bold makeup.Sheer is ChicLace and sheer silk additions can instantly take a black pencil skirt or trousers from bland to bombshell. It instantly lightens up the heaviness of an all black ensemble for an elegant update. The key word here, though, is elegant: refrain from showing too much skin by wearing a neutral layer underneath or adding a more conservative layer on top.DSTLD option:  Women’s High Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Powerstretch.
