Last week, my favorite pair of jeans ripped… On both legs! Actually, the rips look pretty cool, but now I need a fresh new pair sans rips to take me into Spring. With so many denim brand options, it can be difficult to choose, but I am personally partial to Paige Denim, Hudson and Citizens of Humanity, to name a few. But hey, a denim jackpot appears every now and then at Target, too.
Good jeans have just the right amount of body flattering stretch. But the most important feature in a great pair of jeans is pocket placement. Everyone knows that the first thing you do when you try on a pair of jeans is to turn around in the mirror to see how they look from behind. View from the back is definitely the deciding factor!
For Spring, I am loving extreme light rinsed denim, gray wash, and I do love all of the white jeans I’m seeing everywhere. Ribbed and textured denim is very of-the-moment, and provides a newness to the plain jean. And… Hello 80s. Acid washed denim is also back on the racks. I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I’m tempted! Fortunately for me, rips are also a big deal for Spring. That works out for me and my favorite pair of jeans.
I’d love to hear from you! What denim brands do you love and why?
Here are some flattering and stylish jean styles I’m loving right now:
