Are skinny jeans still in? Have boyfriend jeans been replaced? What’s the coolest denim this spring? If these questions leave you scratching your head, then it’s probably time to update your jeans.
Here’s a look at the latest jean trends for spring and some popular styles that are holding their own + ideas for what to wear with them.
SKINNY JEANS INCH UPWARDS
Skinny, tapered jeans that end at the ankle or just above it have been #1 for a long time and for the most part, I’ve loved them. The problem has been trying to find a pair that comes anywhere close to my belly button.
Most of the time skinny jeans are so low-rise that my tummy is spilling over the waistband, and my backside is hanging out because they keep slipping down. There’s no way to disguise a muffin top, and I’m sick of constantly tugging up my pants!
The fantastic news is that this spring the latest crop of skinny jeans are midrise and high-rise. In fact, low-rise skinnies are out. Hallelujah! The skinny jean trend is strong, but instead of skinny jeans being fashion forward, they are now considered a good, basic staple. Here are three new ways to wear skinny jeans for spring.
Flared jeans have moved into the #1 spot. More about this exciting trend in a minute but first let’s look at another very hot jean that is also changing.
THE BOYFRIEND JEAN TREND BECOMES THE GIRLFRIEND JEAN TREND
Bruce Jenner isn’t the only one undergoing gender reassignment these days. The Boyfriend Jean is morphing into the Girlfriend Jean this spring. What am I talking about?
Slightly slouchy, slightly worn Boyfriend Jeans are a relaxed and youthful look that has been a huge hit with women of all ages. Now they’re poised to become even more popular because of a slight tweak. The new girlfriend jeans have a higher waist and a slightly slimmer fit. They are more form-fitting and look sleeker. No baggy legs.
With both boyfriend and girlfriend jeans, you need to roll up the bottoms and show off some ankle in a cute bootie or high pump. Top off your jeans with a cute fitted top jacket or sweater. Add a quality bag and accessories and you have one chic jean look!
FLARED JEANS – SOON TO BE #1 IN JEAN TRENDS FOR 2015
It feels like déjà vu with 70’s inspired flared leg jeans becoming very popular. Mid and high-rise jeans with shorter tops and classic pieces give what we used to call bell bottoms a new feel. Check out this full report on how to wear the Flared Jean Trend for Spring.
THE CLASSIC BOOTCUT REMAINS
I can’t talk about jeans without mentioning the dark wash Bootcut Jean. It is a classic that women can’t get enough of. The inky blue shade is slimming and classy; the bootcut gives just enough flare to balance out a wider hip. This is one jean that has stood the test of time and will be around for many years to come. If it works, don’t change it.
ALSO NEW AND NOTEWORTHY -EMBELLISHED DENIM
