Jeans are an item that most women love to wear. Every year designers re-invent this wardrobe staple. Sometimes the changes are subtle. Other times they are a bit more radical.
This year, the latter is the case. Retailers like Simply Be are stocking some great looking jeans that are designed to really shake up your look.
No more skinny jeans
The skinny jeans trend isn’t completely dead. But, you might notice that most have diversified their denim, offering their customers a range of wider leg cuts.
The boot cut is the new go-to cut
A great example of this is boot cut jeans. For years, they have been hard to get hold of. But not this year.
Boot cut jeans are very stylish. They are also versatile. You can dress them up with a smart semi-tailored jacket and a crisp blouse. But, they also look fantastic when worn with a t-shirt or top and a denim jacket. This short article shows you 8 great ways to make the most of your boot cut jeans.
Flares are easing back into style
If you are looking for a more dramatic cut, opt for flares. They are gradually coming back in vogue.
Not everyone likes the boot-cut or flared look, but they do like the idea of a looser, more comfortable fit. If that is you, try on some of this year’s boyfriend style jeans. These are typically high waisted and fairly loose. They are very much a casual style of jean best paired with sweats, t-shirts, or semi-tailored blouses.
If you are looking for a pair of jeans that you can pair with a blazer or semi-fitted style of jacket, go for a straight-legged pair. It is a cut that works for most body types.
The current trend is for longer jeans. Instead of finishing mid-ankle a lot of the boot cut and flared jeans actually finish mid-heel. This is a great way to create the illusion that your legs are longer than they actually are.
Be careful with the shoes you choose to rock with these.
