How to Rock Your Jeans – Part 2


Posted in

Earlier this week I shared a few ways to rock three of the most popular jeans out there. Well, today I have two more for you. If you’ve only seen your jeans as something to wear around the house or on a camping trip, reconsider! There are a myriad of ways you can rock and style your favorite pair of jeans.

If it’s time to replace or pick up a quality pair of denim, keep these suggestions in mind. If you have a pear shape, consider polishing your look with a boot cut or flare leg jean. They’ll balance the lower half of your body. Shaped more like a rectangle, go for a skinny jean that will hug your narrow hips and calves. For my inverted triangles think boho chic with a light wash wide leg or boyfriend jean to add volume to your lower half, without bulk. Apple shapes look great in dark washed ankle length straight leg jean. If you can find a banded waist even better, to prevent extra bulk in the front. An hourglass shape should find a curvy jean that will follow the natural curves of your body. A high-waist with a gentle flare at the bottom should do the trick.

Overwhelmed by all the jean choices or confused about how to style the ones you already have? I’m your expert in waiting. Give me a call and I’ll help you sort it all out.

straight jeans

Straight-legged jean

This jean is wider than a skinny but narrower than a flared jean. It’s an easy jean to reach for when you’re putting together casual work outfits or a sophisticated date outfit for the night. The darkest shade will be the most formal or dressy. Choose a lighter shade for more casual looks.

Styling tips:

Keep it casual when you throw on your plaid shirt and moto jacket, cuff your jeans and lace up your tennis shoes for an easy outfit to meet friends for a Saturday lunch or browse the aisles of a street fair.
Get a preppy look when you wear them with a white shirt, navy blazer and laced oxfords.
This jean style is so versatile. Wear it with a bootie, high heels or tennis shoes on a three-day weekend to the wine country. Vary your accessories and be prepared to pack light.

Cuffed boyfriend jean

The boyfriend jean has a more relaxed fit and is never flared. The cuff is a very important detail. Roll it one, two or three times depending on how much ankle you want to show. Because it’s cuffed, your shoe will be on full display.

Styling tips:

A great belt is essential if you’re tucking in a shirt. A belt buckle can be the primary focal point in this outfit.
Printed blouses in stripes, checks, plaid, or floral is an easy choice. Double up your denim when you layer on a jean jacket.
There’s a wide range of ankle boots that will be stellar with this jean. Consider a Chelsea flat boot or a shearling boot or a bootie with fringe.
Have fun styling your favorite pair of jeans!

Live, laugh, shine!
