Denim. Glorious denim. The ultimate timeless, ageless, all-purpose, unisex, tried-and-true closet staple. Your grandpa wears jeans. Your mom wears jeans. Your garbage man wears jeans. The Princess of Monaco wears jeans. But most importantly, you wear jeans.
You’ve worn capri jeans, flare jeans, bootcut jeans, low rise jeans, printed jeans, acid wash jeans, ultra low rise extreme flare jeans, ultra stretch jeans… you’ve probably even worn jeggings. And you’re probably really glad all of those jeans have now made their way to either Goodwill or Buffalo Exchange.
Enter Fall/Winter 2018. It is a time to rejoice. Our buttcracks are no longer showing when we bend over. There is no more muffin top. There is no more struggle to squeeze into skin tight jeggings that will barely fit a big toe. We are no longer constantly yanking at the waist of our pants to keep them from falling off. It is the age of the high rise, and women everywhere are actually comfortable (and our butts are looking great!).
If you don’t have a pair of high rise jeans in your closet yet, grab a pair – and for those of you who have traumatic memories of the high rise jeans of the 90’s – don’t fret! Today’s high rise jeans a restructured with lower, larger pockets and slimmer thighs that solve the “mom butt” problem and are actually really flattering.
Here are a few other denim trends we are loving at the moment:
The Cropped Flare Jean: This style is also known as the cropped bootleg or kick flare jean. This fitted jean hits above the ankle with a mini flared fem. Perfect to wear with sneakers or booties.
The Side Stripe Jean: This style has a few interpretations, including an athletic side stripe, a deconstructed side seam, a tuxedo stripe, and more! Wear whatever version makes you feel good!
The Straight Leg Jean: This style is a perfect go-to for your casual days. It features a fitted hip and thigh with a straight leg from the knee down. Many straight leg jeans are ankle length or cropped, perfect for rolling up and pairing with some ankle boots. Go full-length for a cute tomboy look.
The Girlfriend Jean: The Girlfriend Jean is the feminine answer to the Boyfriend Jean. Featuring a slightly slimmer leg, hip, and thigh than the typical boyfriend jean, the girlfriend jean addresses some of the common complaints of the boyfriend jean (i.e. slouchy butt, slipping waistline), while maintaining a comfortable, slightly loose fit.
