Hi girls! I don’t know about you, but I am always look forward to see what trends are going to be popular for the upcoming season. Isn’t it ironic how many trends have come back into style? In the 90’s and 00’s, denim jackets and bell sleeve shirts were a huge hit. In the past year, I’ve seen so many outfits that have incorporated a bell sleeve sweater or blouse. Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite, timeless pieces: denim.
Jeans are a must-have for any wardrobe. However, it’s shocking how many people can wear this essential. Skinny jeans are my favorite style for women. They can be worn year round and styled with pretty much anything. In the Spring, pair them with a cute pair of sneakers, or try heeled boot as the perfect accent during the colder months! Remember my trip to Barcelona? Here’s my skinny jean outfit that I wore while I was there for some inspiration. The great thing about owning a good pair of skinny jeans is that you can dress them up or down for any occasion. Pair them with a flowy, ruffled blouse and booties for the perfect outfit.
A couple other styles of denim that I’m loving right now are flare and boyfriend style jeans. Isn’t it funny how flared jeans have made a comeback? They were popular in the 70’s and the early 00’s, and once again, they’re back! Boyfriend jeans remind me of the weekend. Whether running errands or meeting friends, you want to look stylish and comfortable -boyfriend jeans are the perfect way to incorporate both. However, they can be be worn incorrectly. Since they’re a baggy type of pant, try to avoid wearing a loose-fitting top. I recommend pairing them with a see through t-shirt, leather jacket and mules for the ultimate casual look.
How about the men out there? Denim is an essential in their wardrobes too. I’m sure you think men don’t have as many options when it comes to jeans, but that’s where you’re wrong! From skinny to stretch or slim- to loose-fitting jeans, men have plenty of options. Many menswear companies offer a variety of styles and colors options for any type of body shape (personally, I find that men look the best in a form-fitting stretch jean)
Once again, a form-fitting jean can be dressed up or down. Throw on a nice dress shirt, blazer and dark-washed stretch jeans for dinner after work with friends. For the men that are reading this, I recommend trying to avoid any type of loose or baggy style of denim. When worn with an oversized shirt, the outfit can look sloppy overall. Just like boyfriend jeans for women, this style can sometimes be unreliable, but there is a fix for that! If you do choose to wear a relaxed, loose-fitting jean, pair it with a tighter henley shirt and loafers for a great weekend outfit.
