Denim Trend: The Tuxedo Stripe

Denim Trend Tuxedo

I remember a few years back Alicia posted a piece with the headline, “Season of Change (Is This the End of Skinny Jeans?).” This post caused more conversation that possibly any other. Readers saw the headline and were worried that the jeans they had just purchased were suddenly on the outs.

Of course, skinny jeans are never going to be out of style; they are now a staple. The piece was about how designers keep changing things so customers have something new and exciting to add to their wardrobe, beyond the staples. Sometimes I see new trends at market and I scratch my head a little bit. Last spring it was patches: they were everywhere. I am talking butterflies, mermaids, cowboy hats, and so on. (I took a pass on this trend.)

This fall, one of the biggest trends, the tuxedo stripe, is one I totally embraced and hope you will, too. It adds a little extra something, not to mention the stripe detail helps elongate the leg perceptually. This is never a bad thing.

We have two great styles in from Veronica Beard and Mother denim, and we made sure one option was in a skinny jean cut!

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
