There is just something about a great pair of jeans that can make your day! It can be overwhelming trying to find the right jeans for your body and follow the trends. There are so many choices, from wash to rise to length. 

Skinny: hugs your curves from the waist through the hips & legs like a legging

Straight leg: Straight from the hip to the ankle 

Flare: flares at the knee, can be bell bottoms or wide leg    

Low rise: better for short waisted torso, sits below the hips 

Mid-rise:  great for a little more tummy support

High rise:  helps alleviate muffin top, but can accentuate a gut bump

Light Wash: Spring/Summer, you are more likely to wear pastel-colored tops, paired with light colored jeans and a light colored shoe or sandal.  

Dark Wash:  Fall/Winter,During cooler seasons, you’re pairing more jewel tone-colored tops/ sweaters with your dark denim and dark shoes & boots for a more complete look.    

Demystifying the trends:

Mom Jean: High waisted loose fitting around the crotch

Boyfriend Jean: Oversized, loose or baggy 

Girlfriend jean: fitted waist slimmer leg, more flattering fit for most bodies (a slimmed down version of the Boyfriend Jean)      

Dad jean: Relaxed fit tapered leg 

Destroyed, Distressed, Clean, Oh my!
