Tired of Skinny Jeans?

Are you getting tired of the skinny jean trend?  I hear ya. You're not the only one who has been singing the skinny jean blues.  I have had multiple clients ask about alternatives to the skinny jean and what new jean they should be buying now.  In response, today's article is about the different styles available to you and how to make them work.  Happy jean shopping!

Flared Jeans

Remember these?  They're back.  Flares are the most flattering when worn with a heel.  This time around, the flares should just brush the ground, either hiding your shoes or letting just a little point stick out.

Boyfriend jeans are the skinny jeans more relaxed cousin.  They work equally great for a casual look as they do for date night.  You can go baggy and looser with this style, or slightly fitted and slim to the ankle.  Wear them rolled at the ankle with heels or flats and you're guaranteed to love them like a boyfriend. (I couldn't resist at least one "boyfriend" reference.)

I love this style simply because there are a variety of ways to wear these jeans.  Cuff them wide or skinny, wear them long with heels, wear them with flats and show off your ankles.  This jean can work for so many different outfit occasions.

3 Pieces to Buy Now and Wear Later

Retailers are getting ready to roll out their fall styles and that means many of us will be shopping.  As a wardrobe stylist, I like to make sure my clients make the smartest purchase decisions for their wardrobe each season, always taking into account what they already have in their closet.  There are 3 trends that you can wear, or shop for, now that will definitely still be relevant when fall weather gets here.  Spending wisely and keeping your wardrobe relevant is always in style!


Vests
This piece looks equally great over a dress as it does with jeans and boots. Whether you're headed to work or a weekend get-together, the vest will enhance your outfit with a special flair.

Booties

This shoe style is still around and now features fun updates with slingbacks, lazer-cut details, and open toes.  Wear your booties now with a floaty dress or shorts for an edgy style.  Wear them later with your suit separates for a more professional vibe.
