3 Makes a Trend: Gwen Stefani Expertly Styles a Pair of Studded Jeans
It's official: Blinged-out blues are here to stay. A month after Naomi Watts and Sarah Jessica Parker were both spotted rocking rhinestone-speckled jeans, Gwen Stefani made her bedazzled debut over Memorial Day weekend with her best accessory in tow—3-month-old son Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale.
While Stefani's two predecessors downplayed the studded sparkles with a safe color palette and tailored blazers, the singer-songwriter had no doubt in giving them a personal spin. After topping her Tu Es Mon Tresor pair with a basic white Wilt crossover tank ($101; available in green at shopbop.com), Stefani piled on citrus accents with a poppy orange L.A.M.B. moto jacket ($450; shoplamb.com) and sunny yellow loafers. Tortoiseshell shades and her trademark bold red lip sealed the deal.
After an entire decade devoted to over-the-top denim, bling jeans are a tough sell, but Stefani's outing does make us want to reconsider. Three makes a trend, after all.
