Jeans are the style staple that every woman has in her wardrobe. Easy to wear and chic by nature, they are the must have bottoms that you know will never go out of fashion. Now you don't need to spend mega bucks to get a brilliant pair of jeans, especially when the high street have such an amazing array on offer. So c'mon, let's give these classics a little spruce up and bring them into the now.
The most important thing when it comes to jeans are the fit. Too big will make even the newest of jeans look old and worn in, and too tight is very uncomfortable and never looks flattering. If opting for a skinny jean the best way to pull them off it to get a fabric that moves with you. Now we're not talking a second skin 'jegging', not even size 6 teenagers look good in those. We're talking about choosing a denim with a higher cotton blend so that they are more breathable and thus give you more movement. Braving a wide leg or statement bootcut? Well in that case a stiffer denim is always needed so that it retains it's shape. Nobody likes a floppy flare. Now no matter what style of jean you opt for, the most vital aspect is the waist line, or importantly more where it finishes. A higher waist without a doubt is the most flattering shape, it gently nips in your tum and creates a smoother line around your middle. Never go too low on the rise, avoid a muffin top at all costs.Bright coloured jeans aren't really high on the style scene this AW17, darker tonnes of burgundy or khaki are the key colours of the high street. Fancy trimmings like constrating zips, embriodery or pearl details are bang on-trend for right now.
