one of my favorite denim looks:

7 For All Mankind The Slim Cigarette JeanAny one can wear this.  You can do it with straight leg jeans or skinnys. Dark skinnys can be worn all year round.  Cute with ballet flats and a lighter scarf for when it’s too hot for boots.  Just make sure the skinnys have tons of stretch and are comfortable and you will wear them year round!

Or for a lighter look:

7 For All Mankind The Josefina Skinny Boyfriend Jean Try boyfriend jeans in a light denim or white.  They are perfect for summer! Just remember the key to wearing boyfriend jeans is to have your top just graze the top of the jean, like the picture above. If you are not stick thin or under 5’6″ please don’t wear a long, baggy top with boyfriends.  That will just make you look bigger than you are.  One more tip: white boyfriends, buy ones that are not see through.

I love denim.  I have denim tops and dresses ( light weight or chambray works best), skirts, skinny jeans, wide jeans, boyfriends and trousers.  I truly believe the right pair of jeans is perfect for almost any occasion.  I have a dear friend who wears wide leg jeans and high heels with a little cropped blazer to meetings and lunches and it looks fabulous!  The key to demin is to be polished.  That doesn’t mean stuffy.  It just means complete your look: with a great pair of shoes or boots, a great scarf like above, or great accessories of any kind.  Denim can take you anywhere.  A well fitting pair of jeans with a cute pair of leather runners looks way better than yoga or sweat pants.

Do yourself a favor: try on all the pairs of jeans in your closet.  Get rid of anything that doesn’t flatter you. You could have 10 pairs of jeans but if you only wear 3 of them, what are you keeping the rest for??

Good luck with your denim search.  I hope the images above inspire you too.
