Am I the only one that gets overwhelmed with all of the denim options out there? There are so many cuts, styles, rises. etc. It can be a lot to process. And with fall just around the corner, it’s important to get your denim wardrobe ready to go! I’m going to try and make your life a little easier by going over the different types of denim, how to style them, and my favorite picks of each!
The Skinny Jean- I wear skinny jeans the most! They make such a great silhouette with almost anything. In the fall, I love wearing them with kimonos and long jackets. If you have a full top with volume or a long one, skinny jeans will be your best bet! I recommend getting some with stretch and a slightly higher rise to make everything look “nice and smooth”. It’s all about proportions, so fitted on the bottom works best with flowy on the top! I love that you can wear any type of shoe with skinny jeans. They are perfect with flats, sneakers, boots, booties, really anything!
The Flare Jean- This is a totally different look! I do love a good flare jean, but it’s a completely different silhouette. Unless you are super tall, you pretty much have to wear a wedge or heel with a flare or the proportions are a little off! Flare jeans look best with shorter tops and jackets. I also love a good button up with a flare. It’s a super chic look. Flare really elongates the leg and that is always a plus!
The Boyfriend/girlfriend jean- This is a more relaxed fit. It is loose through the butt and thigh. I love to contrast the more masculine cut with a girly top like this pink lace blouse. I usually tuck it in or wear a belt just to give it some shape. If you wear a loose top with the relaxed cut jean it can look boxy. If I wear a t shirt with my boyfriend jeans, I usually tie it in a knot on the side, so I have a definite waistline. I also love them cuffed with a sneaker. There are lot’s of options. You can wear them totally casual or dress them up!
