SKINNY JEANS are EVERYWHERE!
The SKINNY denim look keeps going strong! There are so many denim brands to choose from in all price ranges so it’s hard to know where to start and what to look for! Are premium denim jeans worth the price? You CAN find skinny (or straight leg) jeans to fit your shape!
People Magazine Style Watch 2012 winner’s Levi’s Modern Rise Bold Curvy Skinny jeans might be just what your curves need and the dark wash is slimming too.
Also a Style Watch award winner in the “boyish” category is the Gap 1969 Always Skinny jeans.
To improve shape retention, premium brands are made with specialized fabric blends of cotton, polyester, Lycra, spandex, etc… the list goes on. Added extra’s … hidden pockets and forward side seams are common, as well as other special features like you’ll find in the Paige skinnies (my personal favorites) available at Bloomingdale’s.
The rear pockets are very subtly asymmetrical for a flattering look and the dark wash is without whiskering or shading to help you appear longer and leaner.
If you prefer a straight leg jean, the DL 1961 “Kate” style was another Style Watch 2012 award winner, considered universally flattering and can be found at Nordstom and Von Maur.
Plus sized Lucky Brand “Ginger” skinny jeans are available in a dark wash and other colors, and are sold at Macy’s.
Petite and Tall ladies will find many choices on the Lucky Brand website, and in Gap Stores.
You may decide skinny denim isn’t for you, but these are great options to try! Skinny or straight leg jeans are perfect with flats, heels, tucked into boots this winter or with sandals in the summer…..ahhhh, can’t wait for that!!!
