Wax On!

During my February trip to NYC I popped into Zara and found these fantastic waxed denim black jeans and they have easily remained one of my favorite purchases of the year.  Waxed denim hit retail around Fall last year and are still going strong and now offered in some spring colors like cream and a dusty pink-beige.  They are a great alternative to the heavier leather look-alikes and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion - Think jeans and a tucked in tee by day and silky top with some bright colored heels by night.  You could even take a pair of jeans or even an old jean jacket you forgot about and give them the wax treatment thanks to a great DIY from shown below (note - skinny jeans work best).
I bought this pair from Zara - Love the gold zipper details on the hip as well as at the ankles.
I think they look best with a blousy top tucked in... And of course a bit of a heel helps to amplify the already great slimming effect they have.
