I’m sure some of you have enough basic jeans in your closet to last you a lifetime. It’s not surprising because if we could, we would live in our jeans forever. However, basic can sometimes become boring and no one wants to look and feel “meh” (uninspiring).
Have you noticed the consistent Style posts on my blog? As I mentioned before, 95% of my old clothes don’t fit me anymore ever since I’ve lost weight (24 pounds to date—OMG!) and I’ve been shopping for new clothes (Amen?!!) It’s an exciting time in my life as I’m building a new wardrobe but this time, armed with more shopping wisdom and buying well-curated attires. And since this blog is also a reflection of my life, I’m sharing with you some of my finds and tips on how to update your basics.
Add spice to your everyday wardrobe with these cool pairs:
High-Waist Cropped Jean
It took me a while to wear anything high waisted but once I’ve put on a pair of high-waist jeans, I’ve grown to love it! It’s comfy and the ankle length looks fresh! Try jeans with a side zip fastening and side pockets.
Boyfriend Low Ripped Jeans
Boyfriend Jeans are sexy! The cut is slightly wider, tapered legs and loose as if you actually borrowed them from your BF. Choose washed denim with heavily distressed details that will go well with your dressy tops and shoes.
It’s the more feminine counter part of the Boyfriend Jeans. The style is ankle-length or long but cuffed, 5-pocket jeans with a slightly looser fit. Regular waist and tapered legs. Best paired with heels!
Shaping Flare Regular Jeans
I love this style as it’s flattering for most body shapes! It’s denim with technical stretch to trim and shape tummy, thighs, and seat, while jeans retain their shape. Regular waist, front and back pockets, and flared legs.
Regular Low Cropped Jeans
This style is my new “everyday” jeans. The low-rise cut and straight, ankle-length legs makes it comfy and casual.
Super Skinny Ankle Jeans
Give your black skinnies an update with some ripped knee action.
The modern 70’s look is encapsulated in this low-rise jeans in washed stretch denim with heavily distressed details. The fit is slightly wider, tapered legs with patchwork details.
Loose fitting and ankle-length trousers that have a how-rise fit perfect for casual Fridays.
Mid-Rise Flare Jeans
My husband loves it when I slip on a pair of flared, mid-rise jeans so I wear them often. If you like the 70’s and boho look, this style is for you!
Kick Flare Ankle Jeans
I love the awkward proportion of this style!! Go for the 5-pocket, ankle-length jeans in washed stretch denim with distressed details, regular waist, and flared legs with raw edge hems.
Ripped Mid-Rise Jeans With Buttons
When you have a lot of jeans, buying new ones with cool details like buttons on the hem are worth it!
Dark, Distressed Skinny Jeans
I love a good pair of skinnies in a dark wash with ripped details. They look cool and look flattering too!
