Let’s be clear about one thing, I never wear blue jeans! It’s not that I have anything against denim, it’s just that I can’t stand the look of worn, faded, distressed or otherwise torn jeans, it literally makes me sick. That said, I was invited to preview the fall collection from HENRY & BELLE, a Chicago-based jean brand that’s been around since 1931 (so you know they’re doing something right). Yes, they carry the classic blue denim jeans but it was a super skinny, coated pair available in bronze or sable that got my juices flowing. Dressed up or down these add a fresh new look and can work day or night with the right tops.

Other winners included the ethnic pattern in autumnal shades of gold, a black on black baroque version and the black side stripe (great for elongating the leg) pant with zipper detail in petrol grey. There’s a lot more to choose from but if you’re looking for something different and chic check out this brand. The best part – with every sale at Henry & Belle, a portion is set aside for charitable causes. You are entitled to be part of this by choosing the cause that will receive a donation on your behalf.
