The First Annual New York Denim Days

#HipNJ, get ready to cross the Hudson River for the fashionista event of the fall!

An exciting festival called Denim Days will be hitting New York City’s streets from September 30th to October 1st. Founders Eric Goldstein and Andrew Olah introduced the Denim Days festival to Amsterdam in 2014. Since then, it has become a staple event for denim fans and fashion lovers. The first annual New York Denim Days seeks to celebrate New York’s take on the versatile thread we all love to wear.

The city’s denim culture will be displayed on Saturday and Sunday, and everyone from fashion bloggers to families are invited to show off their own unique style.

The festival will not only feature live entertainment, food trucks, art, and kids activities, but also pop up shops, vintage showrooms, workshops, and exhibits—all showcasing the indigo process. Over forty-five established brands will be attending, some offering limited edition collections, including BLKSMTH, Jean Shop, Levi’s Made & Crafted, 3×1, and more. Some highlights include live dyeing of denim by Sayaka Toyama, and on-site jean repairs by denimrepair.com, a site dedicated to fixing your favorite blue jeans in an eco-friendly way.

Denim Days’ expansion from Amsterdam to New York proves how eager consumers are to understand what they are wearing. For those in the denim community, it is a chance to share their craft and educate others about the art. Interactive displays from denim brands as well as lectures from experts allow for this opportunity. New York Denim Days lets consumers connect with the people who make the clothing they love. It is a revolutionary event for fashion.

The first day of the event will be hosted at Metropolitan Pavilion. Tickets are available at denim-days.com/ny/tickets for $10 and at the door for $15. Students are $5 with valid identification. Denim Days will conclude at the 18th street festival, in between 6th and 7th avenue, and is free to visit.

2017 Spring Fashion Trends

Looking cute this spring is not going to be hard to accomplish. #HipNewJersey has a few trends that everyone should know before they leave the house this season.

Do you want to look stylish and comfortable when going to school, work or running errands? Athleisure is the best way to accomplish that. Athleisure wear is an acceptable way to wear your gym clothes outside of the gym.

We all remember Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s take on denim fashion, thank goodness we have figured out how to move past that. Denim jackets are simple and complement various outfits. 

Ah stripes! I know a lot of us are afraid to wear stripes – but don’t be. Stripes are in this spring and we are loving them. This season, the bolder the better.

Is pink the new black? Maybe not, but having a few pink staple pieces in your wardrobe is a must. A pink jacket or a pair of pink pants can turn any outfit into a fashion statement.

Miss Selena Quintanilla created the bustier look that we love and now it’s coming back. Showing off your bralettes are everything this spring. Pairing your bralette with high waisted pants and a denim jacket makes for an ultimate go-to look. Another way to show off your bralette in a more modest way is to throw on a sheer top.
