Embrace the Wide Leg:

Move over skinnies, the wide-leg silhouette is taking center stage. Now, we're not saying the skinnies are out. It is your style and your rules. You should wear whatever you look and feel best in. If you love the skinny style, stick to it, but there are more modern options for jeans that feature a wider leg and we are a fan of this style as it offers effortless elegance and ultimate comfort. Below are a few brands and styles to explore in this category.

Mother Denim (Maven Sneak and Hustler): These jeans offer a relaxed fit through the hips and thighs, flowing out into a dramatic wide leg. The high-waisted rise flatters most body types, while the variety of washes allows you to choose between a casual and dressier look.

Paige (Sasha Jeans): Designed with a flattering high waist and a slightly tapered wide leg, these jeans create a long and lean silhouette. The soft, comfortable fabric makes them ideal for all-day wear.

SLVRLAKE (Grace Jeans): Crafted from premium denim with a touch of stretch, these jeans offer a comfortable, lived-in feel. The wide-leg silhouette drapes beautifully, while the cropped ankle length is perfect for showing off your favorite shoes.

Reformation, Spanx, Madwell also have great wide-leg options to explore.

The Cropped Flare:

For a touch of vintage flair with a modern twist, opt for cropped flares like the FRAME Le Crop Boot. This style features a high-waisted fit and a flattering bootcut silhouette that hits just above the ankle. It pairs perfectly with booties, sneakers, or heels, making it a versatile addition to your wardrobe. FRAME Le Palazzo High-Rise Crop are also a favorite. This style elongates the legs and pairs perfectly with everything from sneakers to boots. The Mother Hustler is also a favorite.

The Ankle-Length Straight Leg:

A timeless classic, the ankle-length straight-leg jean is a versatile staple for any wardrobe. Brands like Pistola (Lennon) offer a contemporary take on this iconic style, featuring a flattering high waist and a straight leg that skims the body without being too tight. They come in various washes, making them perfect for dressing up or down.

While the balloon leg is making an appearance more and more it's actually not totally trendy. For example, the AGOLDE (Balloon Jeans) offer contemporary takes on this iconic style, perfect for everyday wear or dressing up.

The High-Waisted Slouch:

High-waisted styles are a universally flattering option, and the slouchy silhouette adds a touch of laid-back cool. Check out the Reformation Cary High Rise Slouchy Wide Leg Jeans and L'agence (Scottie Wide-Leg Jean and Clayton Wide-Leg Jean) for elevated comfort and effortless style.

The Fitted Flare:

Craving a silhouette that hugs your curves but offers a touch of leg-elongating flair? Look no further than the fitted flare! This style, like the Mother Denim Rider or Favorite Daughter jeans, combines the best of both worlds: a flattering fit through the hips and thighs with a subtle flare from the knee down. It's a versatile option that can be dressed up or down, making it perfect for any occasion.

Before you go all in

These days most quality denim is not cheap, so weighing the options before splurging is important. Once you pull the trigger to buy, spend a couple days trying them on making sure they feel comfortable, that you can style and wear with pieces already in your wardrobe, and you like them before taking the tags off! We also highly recommend you trying several pairs at once to weigh the options (given there are SO MANY) and to find what work best for you. Consider us a resource!

Your comfort & confidence > fashion & trends

What is most important when selecting the right pair of jeans is what works FOR YOU. The styles, washes, fits, that you feel most amazing and confident in matter far more than the trends. When you're trying to pull off a trendier pair that just doesn't resonate with your style, isn't comfortable it shows!

These days there is no single "perfect" pair of jeans. It's all about having different options a white jean, lighter wash jean, darker/black jean in different styles and fit. Experiment with different washes, rises, and brands to find what flatters your body type and reflects your personal style.
