I’ve been doing a lot of jeans shopping with clients lately, so I wanted to share my denim guide “outline” with you guys. But first, let’s take an outfit break…
I sloppy tucked the shirt to make it look less boxy. Plus, I like the gold button on these jeans!
Let’s talk about the jeans I’m wearing in these pics… They are my new favorite jeans. They are the perfect true blue (no yellow tint) and super comfortable. So far, I’ve seen these jeans on 3 different body types, and they are always AMAZING! For real, they are the winning pair every time! If there was one pair of blue jeans to buy for this season, it’s these.
If you like this look but are worried they may be too long, look no further. These are your jeans. They were a little short on me (I’m 5’8″), but they were the perfect length for my client. They are also a true blue, and if you’ve ever put on Genetic jeans then I don’t have to say anything else. They are the softest jeans ever- they feel like leggings. But most importantly, the fit is amazing and Genetic’s jeans are so forgiving!
Oh, white jeans. They are such a conundrum, but hopefully this information will help you.
If you are a fan of the white J. Crew toothpick jean but find that they stretch out, these are your jean. They are a similar fit to the J.Crew toothpick, and several of my clients have purchased them after loving the J.Crew toothpick jeans! I bought a pair, too!
Another great pair of white skinny jeans is this pair by J.Brand. I bought them last year, and I recently bought another pair but in a different cut. I absolutely love them! Hence why I bought a second pair -Ha!
I love these distressed jeans. However, I have a few clients who wanted a pair of light jeans, but not the distressed look. For them, these Genetic jeans are perfect. I’ve seen them look amazing on a lot of different bodies. I even got an e-mail from a reader about how happy she was with these. They provide good coverage but are tight and flattering. And for those who want a higher waist, I’ve also seen these fit amazingly!
I feel like I just did a college outline on denim for this season (which sadly was really fun for me). Hopefully this guide will be just what you need. I tried to make it as organized as possible -ha! If you skimmed, read it, there is some really good information in there. (P.S. I would have skimmed. Ha!)
