Jeans can be a hit or miss especially for someone like me who is only 5’2 and has wider hips and a slimmer waist. Since I’ve tried a lot of styles, I thought it might be helpful to provide you all with some of my favorite styles and places to shop jeans from.
I collaborated with Jag Jeans to style this pair of jeans and they have great quality and affordable jeans. I like all type of jeans from, flared, mom jeans, boy friend jeans, cropped, high rise, mid-rise, etc. I usually try to stay away from low-rise and bootcut. Mostly because I’m a little conscious about my mid-section and I feel like high or mid rise hide it well. Bootcut just doesn’t fit my shape but by no means does that mean you should dismiss it. Play around with different styles and fits. If you style them properly and own it, you can make it work.
At the end of my post, I have broken down a few of my favorite jean styles and how you can wear them. You can also shop my favorite pairs directly by clicking on the photos. Hope you enjoy!
My Favorite Denim Styles:
Distressed Denim – Makes any look a little edgier and adds a nice touch to a casual outfit like a tee and some converse. Which is probably my favorite way to wear them. You can easily distress your own with sand paper and I highly recommend this because distressed denim tends to be more expensive.
Boyfriend Jeans – Now, many people seem to think these are the same thing as mom jeans but they’re wrong. Boyfriend jeans are a little loose, a little baggy and make you feel like you’re literally wearing your boyfriend’s jeans. These are popular as distressed. (Girl Friend Jeans are the more slimmer version). These are the staple to street-style so they’re really fun to wear with heels and a girly top to balance out the vibe.
Mom Jeans – These jeans fit great in all the right places. Ask your mom about the jeans she wore in the ’90s, these are it. High waisted, make that booty look nice and come in different washes too. These jeans are a little tough to have them fit perfectly so I suggest thrifting them and have them tailored. They look cute with crop tops and booties.
High-Waisted Skinny Jeans – These jeans are my usual go-to especially in black because they go with everything, they’re slimming and can get you through any occasion. Girls night out? No problem. Wear them with some booties, bodysuit and leather jacket. Work? Wear them with a cute tucked button up and flats or little pumps.I’m also really digging the current trend with the raw front split. So versatile. Everyone needs a pair of skinny jeans.
Cropped – These are a recent fave because you can literally pair these jeans with any type of shoe and one of my biggest pet peeves is having a hard time tucking in my jeans to my booths or having part of my jeans cover my shoes. To avoid that, I refer to cropped jeans, usually with a raw hem to add a little distressing. I like them to flare sometimes too and pare them with sock booties. That’s a look. They lengthen and show off a bit of your legs so you can pair them with your favorite sneakers.
