At the moment, Rebecca Minkoff is heading into quite a bit of uncharted territory. This week, she launched her first-ever denim line, put her skills to work on a new beauty campaign, and is primed to open a flagship store in a 3,800-square-foot space in NYC's SoHo neighborhood by the Fall. And just last night, the fashion designer — decked out in denim, of course — hosted a launch party of her latest pop-up shop. We chatted with the designer on all things jeans, and learned one very important reason why you should buy a pair.POPSUGAR: It's a big deal when any designer moves into the denim market. What made you decide to do it?
Rebecca Minkoff: I love denim, and I wanted to give my customer another casual staple to add to her wardrobe. It was important to me that the jeans be a premium quality but also a great price for my customer. Our price range for the denim and t-shirts is $48 to $128.

The latest design project for Rebecca Minkoff is accessible, affordable, and moisturizing. The fashion designer has teamed up with Nivea for its second Style, Uncapped campaign. She translated one of her runway designs into a limited-edition cap for the bestselling Nivea lip balms. The original print was inspired by a vintage bandanna with bohemian flair, and now it's available in three different colors — teal, blue, and red. Last year, Nivea partnered with Charlotte Ronson on a similar campaign, but this time you can actually purchase the designer label. You can buy Minkoff's designed cap to go over any of your favorite Nivea formulas, including her pick, A Kiss of Moisture (in the dark blue cap). When it comes to makeup and skin care, Minkoff admits her routine is pretty basic. "I use June Jacobs for the face because I like an all-organic, dewy look," she said. "Then I wash with Clean & Clear. That has been my dynamic duo, and I don't switch it up." And her makeup routine is equally unassuming with mascara as her daily staple.
In an expansion of the Style, Uncapped program, you can now create your own cap and purchase as party favors or bridal gifts. There are over 400 designs to choose from, and you can customize the labels with colors and text, too. Visit the Style, Uncapped site to see all the latest designs, create your own, or buy Minkoff's print. One lip balm goes for $6, but if you buy five it goes down to $5 per tube, and if you buy 20 or more the price is $4 per tube. So it's better to buy in bulk, and shipping is always free. Time to stock up on your own personalized stash of lip balm.
No closet is complete without a few too many pairs of denim. And now that Rebecca Minkoff has entered the jeans race (after, of course, conquering the shoe and handbag categories), we're ready to pile in a few more pairs of skinnies and cutoffs.
Made from locally sourced power-stretched fabrics, the designer's Rebecca Minkoff DENIM line is available now and includes five denim styles, all with her signature subtly edgy spin and named after streets of NYC — Mercer, Bleecker, and Crosby, to name a few. With five color ways (and a few casual tees, for good measure), the options are seemingly endless.

As summer heats up, you don't have to cover up to keep it office-appropriate, especially when you make smart switches to lightweight fabrics, bright colors, and breezy silhouettes that get the job done without compromising on style or comfort.
Inside, we've culled 16 office-style game-changers to shake up your 9-to-5 dressing routine in the best way possible. Think printed pencil skirts, subtle statement jewels, and a bold-hued carryall to take you right into the boardroom in style — because really, you have no business wearing that tweed suit in the 85-degree heat.
Reese Witherspoon got all dressed up for a lunch in Malibu, and we're so glad she did because she gave us a fresh way to work our printed skirts this Summer. She started with a Rebecca Minkoff red-toned bandana mini ($288), then smartly tamed it with neutral add-ons. Up top, the star sported a white silk tank with a white blazer, then added a multi-strand coin necklace for major charm. She added colorblocked sandals and carried a white version of Proenza Schouler's PS1 handbag. But what's most appealing about Reese's look? It can be re-created in a variety of color palettes. For example, your blazer need not be white — it can be black or navy, too. To get Reese's exact style, shop similar pieces below.
While not quite as subversive or dark, Rebecca Minkoff's Resort collection channeled a bit of the grungier tomboy we first met in the Fall 2013 lineup. Yes, she wears skirts, but not without a printed sweatshirt tied around her waist and a safety-pin tee on top. Yes, she'll wear a bright floral jacket, but only if it comes with zipper-covered pink jeans. And yes, she'll wear a little Summer dress, given it's an electric blue leather mini, complete with a zippered leg slit. As for bags, which remain the designer's signature accessory, they came in neons, pebbled black leather, and clear plastic.
