The ’70s were a dream for denim lovers. Bell bottoms, denim jackets you name it, denim was on fleek. Because the ’70s denim trends have been making their way back, we thought we’d give you our favorite picks from the newest of ’70s denim trends to make a comeback; the wide leg jean. Cropped or full length, this style is back in a minimal-norm-core type of way and it looks chic. I’m personally feelin’ the Palazzos right now with a simple t-shirt and flats, but the wide leg full-length pants are great for cocktails and dinner as well. What’s your favorite style of wide leg denim ?
There is a plethora of high waisted, skinny jeans out there. They all come in different colors, shapes, sizes and washes making it hard to choose one (or more) to invest in. This post originated when I, myself, wanted to invest a pair of high waisted skinny’s that I could live in during the cooler months and help me avoid retiring my crop tops (I own A LOT) for the winter.
I went to my local denim bar at American Rag and tried on pair after pair and needless to say, it took a while. Everyone has different body types and my trouble with jeans lies in the rise, which is usually too long for me. Most jeans sag, making it super uncomfortable to wear and results in me having to pull up my pants every few minutes.
Aside from the rise, it seems like every pair of jeans are made for a 7-foot tall supermodel because they are never NOT bunched up at my ankles (I’m not even short!). After trying on about 10 pairs, I chose *fell in love with* the Hudson Barbara High Waist Skinny (#1 on my list). They fit LIKE A GLOVE, with the perfect amount of spandex blended in with the cotton so they hug your body nicely. They’re also pretty high so they fit my long torso and all my crop tops meet the jeans at the perfect spot on my body.
The rise fits great and the length is just right. I was so happy with my purchase that I wanted to share my new found love for the Barbara’s but also to give you some other pairs to try on for size (literally). My 12 best high waisted skinny jeans are all based on the style, color, and wash and I think any of these would be a great investment piece depending on how well they fit your individual body. Check out my picks after the jump!
As I usually do round ups of denim and trend posts for women, I thought it would make a change to do something for the guys. I’ve rounded up 12 of the best jeans around at the moment which are perfect for the up and coming Fall season. I know we are still in Summer at the moment, but Fall will soon be upon us and it’s best to be prepared early! Ranging from raw, indigo, grey and black to warm browns and burgundy, there’s a style for everyone. Which of these jeans do you like the most?
I don’t know about you but once mid-August rolls around, I’m itching for Fall to arrive. It could be that I live in LA and we don’t get much of a cold season(s), or it could be consistently getting hit with heat wave after heat wave to where you are drained of all your energy once August finally ends. Either way, I think we can all agree that Fall is definitely a favorite and aside from Pumpkin everything, one of the best parts is transitioning your wardrobe. You can mix all the clothes you haven’t seen in months with your favorite Summer pieces you’re wearing now and your wardrobe is now exciting again. I’ve compiled a list of denim pieces that are on trend and so fun to layer up in different ways, your closet will be Fall-ready in no time.
