DL1961, the New York-based premium denim brand, is totally channeling Los Angeles' dueling forces of seasonal cool and ever-present sunshine in its new Women Resort 22 collection.
From elevated athleisure to classic denim, the line is full of looks perfect for a weekend trip to your house in Palm Springs or Big Bear or even just a Saturday cozied up at home. We also think a number of pieces make for the perfect work-from-home attire.
Women Resort 22 includes matching shorts sets, elastic-waist joggers, a variety of jeans and jumpsuits. Opt to revel in the work day with the white linen Zika button down or the khaki Tilda shacket that’s the perfect in between of a coat and cardigan.
The days inching toward getting longer ultimately means for Angelenos more sunshine, and the Freja jumpsuit makes for a casual look on a beautiful Southern California day. Match it with boots and a coat for nights out or simply pair with sneakers or your favorite Birkenstocks for a stroll around Melrose Trading Post.
For a more relaxed outfit, DL1961 presents the Rylan drawstring shorts in khaki, which can be paired with the Tilda shacket, or dusty rose, which has a matching crewneck. These sorts of sets are ideal for beach hangout when the sun is beaming, but it’s not yet exactly bikini weather.
The collection also features a wide variety of denim pants because who says your go-to jeans and t-shirt look has to be boring? Choose from the Mara straight-leg jeans with distressed detailing to pair with your favorite band tee or go for the Laura jogger pant for a more relaxed denim fit. Other styles include the light-wash, straight-leg Emilie pant and and distressed Patti jeans that come in a number of washes.
What’s particularly great about DL1961 denim is that it is totally sustainable. Jeans usually take about 1,500 gallons of water to produce, but the New York brand’s pieces take less than 10 gallons. Furthermore, 98 percent of the water used during manufacturing is recycled and treated. With these jeans, you’re choosing both yourself and the planet.
