Let’s talk about denim. I don’t know about you, but my girlfriends and I get a little evangelical when it comes to our denim. But can you blame us? Finding that perfect pair of jeans, or better yet, that brand that works best for your body type is a total wardrobe game changer. My personal favorites are Rag & Bone, 7 for All Mankind, and J Brand, but I’m always trying other brands… just to see. When it comes to cut + color, I typically favor a skinny leg in darker blue and I like them to hit right at the ankle so that just a sliver of skin is exposed above my boots. I find that to be the most flattering silhouette on my body, and it works well with my (chaotic around this time of year) lifestyle… I’ll throw on a longer top, a blazer, and ankle boots or pumps and I’m ready to go.
If I’m not wearing skinny jeans, it’s boyfriend jeans. I know they aren’t the most flattering, but they sure are comfy… and on some days, comfort just comes first. (Sidenote: this is the most flattering pair of boyfriend jeans I’ve ever seen… and I kinda love that they are dark and aren’t distressed – it’s unexpected.) My favorite place to buy my denim is always Nordstrom, as they have the best selection of styles (and their return policy makes shopping a breeze if you aren’t sure on sizes.)
Lastly, I really love a great pair of black jeans. They’re incredibly flattering, and supremely easy to wear. I love going all black, or pairing black denim with a crisp white blouse. This year, I bought this pair of ripped up black J Brands which is a departure for me but I really love them.. a little more edgy than usual. For something more classic, I also love this pair from Paige Denim as it is that perfect ankle length that I love so much.
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.
