I have an obsession for jeans. They’re suitable for many different occasions like casual on the weekends, basic for school or work and then more glam, for example detailed pockets, for evening. Like everyone knows the skinnies have been the top jeans trend (almost the only) for the past seasons, and every single fashionista has probably a few pairs. The skinny jeans aren’t the most comfortable and figure-flattering jeans (to most women), so I think it’s time to put them to rest and celebrate other jeans trends, such as wide leg, high waist and coloured.
The celebs have been wearing wide leg jeans a lot and I’m really liking this trend. They’re so much more classy as they go with everything from a T-shirt to a dressy blouse. And they come in such a variety like slim fit, high waisted, sailor style, loose boyfriend fit – I could keep on going. The wide legs are perfect to tuck shirts and tanks in – it defines the waist and gives nice proportions. If you don’t want to tuck-in, a fitted tank top or a shirt is perfect. Whether you’re petite, tall, curvy or slim this look suits almost every size and shape. The best shoes to wear with this jeans trend? A open or round toe pump to add heigth, or flats if you’re tall.

Here we have three different styles. To left are J & Company Jeans Hollywood Trouser $163, they have a slightly more form fitting leg that will not overwhelm a slender figure but will still create an elongated leg line. In center are Lux Lightweight Denim Sailor Pant $68. Right are J Brand Malik Premium Denim Wide Leg in Azul $217.
Well there are mixed opinions about this trend, but they aren’t as bad as they look. Like the wide leg, they come in different styles and shapes – from 8 inch rise to 14 inches, and from skinny fit to wide leg. It is also great to tuck-in tank or a button shirt wih high waist jeans as with the wide leg. Try to wear this jeans trend the way it flatters your body. If your long and lean you can wear them with flats and a tank top, but if you have curves, high heels and a sexy top is more flattering. The great thing about high waist jeans? They hold in that extra something we tend to carry in our tummy area. But don’t be a fashion victim, if it doesn’t flatter your body or your not confident, dig it. This trend just doesn’t work on every body – even Jessica Simpson with her perfect curves wasn’t rockin the high waist!

On left we have basic dark washed Nobody Cult Highwaisted Jeans $200. In center we have Silence & Noise Buttoned-Up Jean $98, also a dark wash but with buttons and more details. On right is Cheap Monday Stretch Skinny Jean $65, gray shade and not sky-high, a great alternative for those who don’t want to take things too far.
It’s a trend I’m afraid to open up to, but when I think about it, it is a welcome change. These jeans are a blast from the past, they originally were worn in the 80’s. They come in all the colors and shades of the rainbow – from spicy red to cotton candy purple. The jeans have to be skinny and styled simple because they are the statement. Beware over-accessorizing as the look gets too complicated, and be careful of what colors you mix – some just doesn’t look right together.
