Everyone Loves the Twiggy from James Jeans.

These skinny jeans are a celebrity favorite every season.  The fit is divine, and this classic skinny jean comes in great washes.  We have it in Havana and Chateau, which are denim washes, and Cafe au Lait, which is a creamy light brown (imagine coffee with cream).  Pair these jeans with a Bella Dahl top or a Kerisma sweater for a lovely spring look!

Helena's Trend Alert: Denim Tops & Jackets for Spring!



Fashionable actresses have latched on to one of the hottest trends for spring: the denim jacket & denim top.  We LOVE this look, and it have new light washes of denim for this season.  The best denim jacket is the classic Giacca jacket from Red Engine (above), and the winning denim top is this light-wash pocket button-up from Bella Dahl (also above).  These fabulous pieces are at both Helena's locations.
Our favorite ways to wear this look:
-  A denim jacket over a lace or floral print dress, to create a easy and casual day-look.
-  Wear your denim top with a pair of white jeans or a pair of colored denim jeans.
- Pair your light denim top with a dark pair of skinny jeans or denim the Prairie Underground Glove legging, and a chic pair of ankle boots.
- Throw either the denim top or jacket over a striped top and dark jeans with sneakers.  Your weekend outfit has never looked so good!

Helena's customers look so chic!

Our long-time and loyal customer, Tricia Walker, came into our Arlington store today.  She was shopping for new spring separates and told us how much she loved a Papillion dress that she'd bought in the winter from our holiday collection.  Tricia calls this her "go-to" dress.  Here, Tricia styles it brilliantly with tights and boots on a recent trip to NYC!
