black jeans

Kate Rooney Mara was snapped out in Hollywood in an eye-catching black and white mix look.

She teamed her R13 skinny jeans with a small black and white distressed jacket – actually a pretty interesting jacket with distressed and frayed finishes and zippers a the sleeves. A “plaid” take on a motorcycle leather jacket. And then Kate also added a black and white big plaid shirt which she wore tied around her waist. I love this look and I am giving it a 4 star (out of 5).

The 5th star got lost because I think that the whiskering of the black jeans along the upper front is a bit too artificial, but I do like the rest of the jeans. Except for the whiskering, the fading and the rips are well done and proportional. Kate cut off her jeans for the frayed hem effect. The jeans are the R13 Allison jeans, a staple in their collection. For this coming spring and summer, these same jeans are available in an all ready made cropped version with frayed and unfinished hems.

You can buy R13 jeans at Shopbop, Barney’s, and Yoox has a lot of amazing styles on sale right now.

  1. I like this outfit alot. I’m tired of faux distressing too. but these jeans look really good and they’r just the right length. I wonder if the shirt hiding a disappointing rear view.
