Fall Into Fashion: Wax-Coated Denim
Posted by Gabrielle Anderson Thompson on September 20, 2012 at 1:17 PM
You're dying for leather leggings, but you can't afford the $800 price tag? Enter the wax-coated jean. It looks almost like leather, usually comes in the form of a skinny, and is just as rockstar without breaking your bank.
And don't feel restricted to black with this trend. Wax-coated denim is having a major color moment this season.
Gabrielle, a self-professed fashion junkie, and the blogger behind Resort Rock Sugar, leads a dual life. Quite paradoxically, she spends her days in a downtown highrise office building as a busy civil litigation attorney, but you wouldn't guess it if you peeked inside her closet. There you would find everything from fringe tank tops to short leather mini dresses, essentially nothing she can wear to her 9 to 5, err, 8 to 8 job. On the weekends, when she isn't discovering hot new designers whilst hitting up her favorite shopping haunts in LA, or taking in the brilliant fashion that is LA's scenester crowd, she is documenting it all via her blog, and probably from a prime seat at the Coffee Bean on the corner of Beverly and Robertson, because in LA all you need to do is step outside to get a little fashion inspiration.
