Nothing lasts forever … except for the theme of choosing jeans!
I will not tell in general phrases what is in trend and what is not. For me, as a professional stylist, it is only important that you find your ideal version and enjoy the reflection in the mirror. And I will help you with this!
Yes, jeans are a universal component of any wardrobe, nowadays they are worn not just for walks and country trips, but also for work, study, and sometimes even for official events.
The only thing that complicates the task of choosing jeans for us is that not all of us have a figure close to those miniature standards by which many brands sew their clothes.
Many of us have beautiful rounded hips, waist, beautiful legs, but not always our figure and jeans patterns from stores "converge with each other."
Therefore, I will give several recommendations that will help you find comfortable and stylish jeans that will be not just a trend, but a reflection of what you were looking for and what you dreamed of.
Basic jeans models
To begin with, let's figure out which models are relevant and most common.
Classics are always relevant, and for good reason. It is only important to pay attention to the color of the jeans and the quality of the fittings in order to avoid irrelevant details that can simplify the image.
For girls who love comfort and freedom - an ideal option. Wide jeans are very popular, and thanks to the details, fit, color, you can find “yours”. The main thing is to take into account the length - too long should be worn under the heel, but medium length only for a low stroke. Too universal because of this nuance, you cannot call them.
Skinny is still worn, but it's important to keep in mind the balance of proportions that I mentioned in an earlier article. If you choose tight jeans and feel comfortable in them, complement them with a voluminous top: a bomber jacket, a leather jacket or an oversized jacket, or even a loose shirt of a simple cut. Then, the image will be balanced and stylish.
Some of the most feminine and versatile styles: they accentuate the waist and hips, add elegance and flirtatiousness. Relevant, stylish and very versatile. Moms can be combined with most things in a classic and non-classic wardrobe, use elements of a sporty style, romantic, natural and whatever your heart desires.
If you haven't tried them on yet, give it a try!
I'll run ahead and say that the flare is a very interesting style of jeans: if the figure wants to add feminine curves and shapes, flared will fit perfectly into such a story. They can be combined both in everyday casual looks and in authentic boho chic sets. We look and get inspired by examples of combinations.
Whatever the cut and fit, cropped jeans fall into their own category. In the classic version (7/8), they will add lightness and air to the figure, and by choosing the right length, they will stretch the legs, emphasizing their grace.
But, if this is the length of the culottes, they are more difficult to match with shoes, and they can shorten the legs, pay attention to this.
How does color work in visual body shaping?
Classic jeans colors: blue, light blue, gray, black. Which one to choose is up to you. I will just say what you need to remember about color contrasts: light shades will expand, dark ones will narrow. Based on this, choose the color of the jeans according to your wishes and goals.
And scuffs "work" in exactly the same way. If you want to remove excess volume from the leg area, choose solid color options, because scuffs and bleaching will add volume.
How it looks like, let's see some examples.
Fit: high, medium or low?
- High - ends above the navel;
- Medium - ends below the navel;
- Low - ends below the hips.
Linen accents in casual wear or how to add sparkle to your look?
The high waist is very popular and loved by everyone, and it is not surprising - it adds visual length to the legs and emphasizes the waist. If you have a request for leg lengthening, “tuck” your figure, emphasize feminine forms - feel free to choose a high fit.
Mid-rise is versatile enough that we often see it in stores. But, you need to be careful with her if you want to lengthen your legs and emphasize the hips and waist. If not guessed with the proportions, they can unfortunately cut the proportions of the body.
A similar situation with jeans on a low rise. They are trending again, yes.
But, as a professional stylist, let me remind you that it is important that the thing adorns you, that you feel comfortable, that you feel confident, and only then look at the trends.
Low-rise jeans shorten the legs and make the silhouette wider, rather than stretching like high-rise jeans.
Therefore, pay attention to this important point.
