I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. It might sound boring, but with the awesomely colored, textured and patterned jeans that are popping up everywhere, it’s time to think outside the boot cut. I have some hip action going on… ok, and junk in the trunk… so I’m quite self-conscious about the clothes I put on my bottom half.
I strayed away from skinny cuts until I tried different tops, like tunics, and I wasn’t too sure about wide-leg jeans until I discovered they made me look taller. Sold! It’s all about trying new looks. I did a few sketches of some of my favorite ways to style jeans:
THE WIDE LEG – For a dressier occasion, my go-to is a wide-leg jean with a higher waist than usual. It gives off that whole trouser look, but with a twist! You can really pair it with any type of shirt, but a flowy, buttoned shirt tucked into a pair of these babies is classy as eff.
THE PATTERN – I love how patterned jeans have been making an appearance. Ever the statement piece, I’d pair a skinny floral jean with a lightly striped loose-fitting tee to mix things up. Add some structure with a leather jacket and BAM. I’m set for a day out.
THE BELT – Belts make quite the statement, and I wasn’t a fan until I nabbed a few colorful and textured skinny belts. These little guys add a pop of color and tie a look together.
THE COLOR – Colored jeans are everywhere! Jump into spring with a fresh pair of mint colored skinnies or add a few other staple colored jeans, like red and cobalt. Color blocking made easy peasy. I’m on a skinny jean/jegging/legging + tunic kick. I mean, come on, comfy, chic, and easy to accessorize? Yes, please.
