Over the past couple of weeks, there has been a bit of a nip in the air. In the mornings, you can feel that autumn is just around the corner. Without a doubt, now is a good time to update your wardrobe.
For me, that definitely means treating myself to at least one pair of new jeans. I am very much a jeans girl, for me, they are a wardrobe staple. So, I always keep an eye on what is trending. If I particularly like the current jean trend, I will buy several pairs. Doing this ensures that I always have a new pair that I like, ready to hand.
Recently, I have noticed wider leg jeans starting to appear in the shops. So, I was wondering if my favourites, skinny style jeans, would start to become harder to get hold of. I am pleased to report that this is not the case, these jeans are available from Simply Be and many other retailers.
They look great with virtually any style of top, jacket, jumper or coat. You can also pair them with any style of boot and most shoes. They are a particularly good option if you are planning to treat yourself to a pair of over the knee boots.
These are not strictly jeans, but I am mentioning them here because they are an excellent alternative. If we are lucky, we will still have quite a few warm days during the autumn months. Jeggings are ideal for those. They are lightweight, so are not as warm as regular jeans are.
Jeggings can also come in handy during the winter months. A lot of women like to wear them under jeans and trousers as a way of keeping extra warm. If you have never worn them before, you might find these styling tips helpful.
Straight and Slim-leg Jeans
If you do not like the skin tight look, straight and slim-leg jeans are a great alternative. They hug the leg tightly until just above the knee then fall away in a straight line. This cut is ideal for someone who has slightly bowed legs or is a bit knock-kneed.
For a slightly more glamorous look, go for boot-cut jeans. These draw the eye in a way that makes the wearer look more feminine and curvy.
Flares are not for everyone, but, they do look really good on hippy women. They are also quite dressy, so work particularly well when worn with a classy or bright top.
Jeans are usually made from good-quality denim. This is a strong and durable fabric, which is great at smoothing out the bumps and holding everything in place. If you have put on a couple of pounds over the summer and are feeling a bit self-conscious about your waistline, try on a pair of high-waisted jeans. You will be pleasantly surprised by the shaping effect they have.
