DL1961 launched in September 2008 in New York City with the mission to create “the perfect fitting jean” using revolutionary technology and fabrics. The line is known for its unparalleled technologically advanced fabrics, including DLX and dlpro, which provide the ultimate fit and performance. A pair of DL1961 jeans fits like a glove, and never loses its shape. DL’s skinny legging jeans are a favorite here at CakeStyle – you can never go wrong with comfort and style! We especially love the brand’s fun colors, patterns, and textures – it’s chic, classic-fitting denim with an edgy twist.


DL1961 has established quite an impressive celebrity following, for not being around more than five years. It’s not surprising though, since their denim is the perfect everyday staple. Celebs like Giuliana Rancic (below left), Alessandra Ambrosio (below right), and the Kardashian sisters have been spotted on the streets rocking their DL’s from day to evening, and from casual errands to high-profile press events.

Season after season, DL1961 delivers updated versions of their perfect-fitting staples, and their Spring / Summer 2013 collection is no exception! While there was a heavy focus on sheer materials, metallics, and textures, they also showed some refreshing basics that remind us what denim is all about – effortless style.

The spirit of DL1961 is casual and cool, chic and classic, and trendy and fun – who knew one brand could embody so many distinct qualities? When it comes down to it, though, it’s all about fit, and once you try on a pair, you’ll never go back! Check out our slideshow below of DL pieces we currently have in stock at CakeStyle – we weren’t lying when we said that colors, patterns, and textures were thier thing!

    This beautiful turquoise color is the perfect pick for any season. Turquoise denim is great, because it’s not too far off from classic blue, but it’s just different enough to stand out.

    A bright pop of red is my personal favorite, especially with denim. Wear these with a cream top and leopard-print flats for a stunning combo.

  • Waxed Emma Legging in Amethyst

    Waxed denim has recently hit the fashion scene, and it’s not leaving anytime soon! This pair in amethyst is a fun choice that keeps you warm in the winter and colorful in the spring.
