Splurge or Save: Waxed Denim
Wax on, not off. Add a little edge to your closet with waxed denim. Which of the many pairs suddenly available should you buy? The Rag & Bone mid-rise jeans are sleek with an urban feel. Complete with side zippers, these skinnies are great to dress up or down. (We'd style them with pointed heels and a trench coat.) Perfect for fall, the Madewell "Skinny Skinny" coated jean in “true black” are a great alternative. They have the leathered look, minus the hardware. Best of all, both jeans have the ability to suit many styles—from polished to grungy, with a silk top or distressed knit sweater.
