Fashionable Tops to go with your Jeans

Jeans are universally notorious for being worn with just about anything in your closet. The possibilities are endless, but this season, celebs and fashionistas alike are creating fabulously flattering combinations that can’t be ignored. Here, we examine some of the most stylish looks of the season:

With skinny jeans – Try a long blousy tunic and a cropped jacket. Take a cue from Jennifer Hudson, who rocked this look at this year’s superbowl. She was fashion forward and looked fierce.

With boyfriend jeans – For a relaxed look that still looks pulled together, pair with a fitted blouse or button down shirt. Eva Longoria-Parker does a great job at effortless chic by adding a great pair of ballet flat, designer bag and trendy hat.

With bellbottom jeans – Keep the rest of the look tailored, to avoid looking too 70s. Add a form fitting tank or sleeveless blouse for maximum impact. Check out scene-stealer Victoria Beckham’s simply stylish outfit.

5 Things to Consider when Buying New Jeans

If you’re looking for the perfect fitting pair of jeans, then here’s a few tips that will help ensure you find the perfect denim staple for your wardrobe:

  1. High-quality fabric – Look for premium denim in ring-spun cotton. A little bit of stretch can go a long way in terms of fitting your form in all the right places
  2. Great tailoring – If you’re going to invest in a designer pair of jeans, then make sure the fit is ideal. Consider made-to-order jeans that are custom created for your measurements.
  3. Eye cataching details –  Pay attention to the small touches that allow you to show your individual style. Jeans can go glam with intricate back pocket designs or colored stitching
  4. Pockets that flatter – Be sure not to add bulk in areas where you already have ample curves. Front and back pockets should compliment and streamline your look.
  5. Styles that elongate – Look for ways to lengthen your leg line, such as twisted seams on skinny jeans.

Jeans to Take You Into Summer

As the weather heats up and thoughts of warm summer nights and vacation get-a-ways fill your head, it’s time to think about updating your spring and summer wardrobe as well.  So what’s a great item that you can wear year-round and is considered a wardrobe staple? A great pair of jeans, of course!

The look of the season is light-colored denim, especially in soft washes and fades that are as cool and care-free as a gentle breeze. Straight leg, or ‘boyfriend’ cut jeans are ideal for warm summer nights, as they can be rolled to 3/4 of  the full length. This effortless style statement is characteristic of the bohemian chic trend that is so popular and worn by all the hottest stars. From Reese Witherspoon to Cameron Diaz and Rachel Bilson, the boyfriend cut jean is popping up on the fashion radar of all of Hollywood’s leading ladies. 

The best way to wear boyfriend cut jeans is with a simple tank top or untucked t-shirt and flip flops or gladiator sandles. The head-to-toe look is unfussy and cool.

The Skinny on Skinny Jeans

Skinny or tapered leg jeans have made a come back in a big way. From cigarette jeans of the 50s to emo rocker to high-fashion premium denim, the skinny jean has run the style gamut. The big misconception with this style of jean is that you actually have to be slim to wear this cut. Not only is that statement entirely untrue, in fact, skinny jeans look great on many body types. It’s just how you wear them that can make or break the overall look.

From Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss to Jennifer Hudson, it’s obvious that fanatics of the skinny jeans don’t simple fall into one category of body type and shape. This curve hugging denim is great for casual everyday looks, simply paired with a flat sandal or wedge. But skinny jeans can easily make the transition from day to night, pairing well with a killer pair of colored or metallic heels. If you happen to be curvy, try dark wash skinny jeans with a tunic or a lightweight unstructured sweater. The key here is to be comfortable, yet chic.

Jeans to Flatter Your Body Type

If you’ve ever searched for the perfect fitting pair of jeans, then you probably have memories of trying on countless pairs of jeans in different styles and cuts to find the ideal pair for your shape and size, only to settle for inferior quality in the end. Next time, consider high quality made-to-order jeans that are custom tailored to your body’s measurements.  The right jeans can pull together your whole look – from head to toe, creating a unique and flattering style. Here are some quick tips to help you select the right jeans for your body:

If you’re curvy – Consider boot cut jeans to balance proportions and hug curves in all the right places. Dress up in dark denim with a cropped jacket or form fitting criss cross top for a night out on the town.

If you’re slender – Try boot cut or wide leg jeans to add volume and create the illusion of curves.  Keep tops fitted for a feminine flair that looks tailored and chic.

If you’re petite – Dare to bare in skinny jeans that enlongate the frame and leg line. Pair with a loose blouse or free-flowing tunic and flats for a bohemian chic vibe.
