It is safe to say that jeans have been among your most preferred outfits: your childhood pair from the very basic jeans brands, your grungy skinnier jeans from the nineties, your most favorite pair in your college days, and the first pair of your most expensive jeans which fit well. Today, jeans, especially the skinny types, have transitioned into a wardrobe staple. It is a quick go-to item you can wear during your off days, and they are versatile because they go with just about anything. Another benefit of jeans is that they can be worn in a matter of seconds because they do not require so much work, like ironing. While their simplicity makes them every woman or man’s favorite, they can easily make a person susceptible to being caught in a style rut. If you have a problem (like a majority of people do) of pairing your pair of jeans with the same white T-shirt every time, perhaps the time has come for you to get some styling inspiration. You can easily be surprised how stylish your jeans can look when you decide to wear them differently. However, before diving into the different style ideas for your jeans, it is essential first to understand the different types of jeans that are available.
Types of Jeans
Ideally, not all styles are going to be ideal for every person. To be sure what style fits you, you will first need to understand what your body type is and which jeans will fit you appropriately. If your frame is smaller, then skinnier jeans will certainly fit you best. Straight cuts, slim, skinny, and super skinny are often suitable because they ensure your slender shape remains in proportion, allowing you to put on a fitted top. If you are a chunky person and you have been hitting leg day, then it makes sense to avoid the skinny pair of jeans. In this case, you may opt for the straight or loose fit jeans. If you are uncertain of how you can pull off your pair of jeans, do not worry because this article guides you to some of the best styles you can wear to look presentable with your jeans.
- Under the Dress
If you are a lady looking to rock your jeans by filly flair, you may want to consider wearing it under a dress. While this may appear tricky, you can always pull it off with a dress if done the right way. Consider this style to be the answer to a casual-yet-dressy look, or bringing your dresses back to life. If you are really looking to master this look, you can think of it as replacing your tights or leggings with the jeans. The trick is to do this with a high slit dress that exposes the legs of the pant.
- Rock Your Sweater with the Jeans
The idea here is to maintain a simple look. A solid-colored sweater in off white, tan, charcoal, brown, grey, green, or dark blue can easily blend with any color of your jeans. You may consider pairing chunky sweaters with chunky jeans and a slim sweater with slim jeans. While rocking this style, you need to remember that simple jeans and plain sweater with nothing else may appear a bit boring. You can add some interest to the sweater’s texture (such as Aran knitting) or the sweater’s shape (such as a cardigan or shawl neck). You may also want to include layers and accessories into this look. A sports jacket could be a perfect addition and could make your bulky sweater appear more flattering.
- Statement Ankle Boots
If you are a fashion lady, then you most likely rocking your pair of jeans with some ankle boots. In the past, black booties were the most preferred when it comes to wearing jeans. However, if you are looking for a more updated style, you may want to consider boots with bold prints. The prints, such as snakeskin or a pattern on your booties will go a long way in revamping the look in jeans. For extra comfort, you can go for a chunky low heel, or you may consider a stiletto heel if you want some extra few inches to rock your world.
- Contrasting Neutrals
If you are the kind of person who loves black and white skinnies, then here is a trend update for you. While monochrome always makes an outfit outstanding, black and white has become a trend you would love to be a part of. You can rock your black jeans with a white top when going to work. On the other hand, white jeans to go along with a black top would be the ideal outfit for an evening out. This style appears to be more basic, but it is a unique and unexpected trend that allows you to get dressed in seconds.
- A Jeans and Blazer
In most cases, the solid-colored blazer can be difficult to pull off, especially with jeans, but you can make it work with the right blazer. For the best look, you can choose a slim rather than a square cut and do not choose a color that is close to your jeans. The buttons of your blazer should be duller and darker so try to find one without the brass buttons.
The jeans' world is broad and intricate. To find jeans that are ideal for you, you need to conduct a lot of research and make some trial and error before you can find a combo style that is suitable for you. While doing that, take into account what your preferences are and what your personal taste is, then begin narrowing down your options for the best style. Apart from that, you may want to consider your body shape because nothing is as bad as wearing ill-fitting jeans. After you have finally decided what style fits your preferences, you will now be ready to tackle the trend because there will always be some pair of jeans to fall back on.
