Nothing like a smidgen of celebrity street style to get our Spring/Summer juices flowing. Earlier today, Kate Bosworth, poster girl of the oh so casually cool movement, joined the legions of lovely ladies (god I love alliteration) sporting J Brand's 'Houlihan' skinny cargos on the NYC streets. Kate kept her trademark California girl cool in a tie dye Proenza Schouler tank, aviators and that "I just stepped out of the shower so my hair is still wet but I look better than you do after 2 hours at the salon" bun. Ok maybe all of that wasn't going through her head, but she still managed to look effortlessly chic as always.
These are apparently THE pants to covet for the summer, and the sight of Ms. Bosworth in them only makes them that more fantastic. If you're into that whole "I wear the genuine article no matter the cost" thing, rush over to singer22.com for your pair of the season's hottest pants.
Need further proof that the J Brand Houlihan skinny cargos are the IT pants of summer 2010? Read on...
Fans include Jessica Alba, our favorite fashionista Miss RBils, Rihanna, Hillary Duff, Fergie, Ciara, Gwen Stefani...the list goes on...
Will leave you with the afore mentioned proof of celeb fave status and a little cheat option for those of you who, like me, enjoy your jeans on the cheap.
You can't deny Urban's "Surplus Army Pant" bares a striking resemblance to the J Brand Houlihan. I may even like it better because of its overwhelmingly green color and the fact that it's not actually denim. And at $58 versus $230 it's a no brainer in this girl's head. Not saying that you shouldn't go for the originals, they are fab after all and probably won't start sagging right away like a cheaper jean. But it's nice to have options right?
