Widen Your Perspective with Wide Leg Jeans!
So as always with a new season comes a new inspired twist on an older trend. The other day I was channel surfing and came upon a a CBS piece on Trendy Spring Looks For Less. Their take is this...Two of spring's biggest trends are print tops and wide leg jeans. The prints are bold and mod. The jeans are wide-legged and start at the hip. Not just a boot cut flair at the bottom, all the way down. They were paired with wedge cut shoes, which are back for another great season. The segment guest was Redbook magazine's editor, Cheryl Kramer. In "Chic on a Shoestring," expensive "splurge" outfits are shown along with much more reasonably priced combinations, called "steals." It's often hard to tell the difference. I got all caught up in the wide legged jean look! It's so hot.
Cheryl featured Paige Premium Denim jeans. Take a look at "Robertson" for a classic jean that flows into a sweeping flare. The cleaverly angled side seams simply trim inches from hips. These are definite hip and thigh downsizers. This is such a great wide jean that is presented in several beautiful washes. For Spring and Summer I like a lighter wash with a retro mod print top. Stylin!
Hudson has a very hip version of the wide legged jean. It comes in a dark blue wash with no fading or worn spots. The wide leg measures 23 glorious inches and has a wide countroured waistband. OH...and of course pleats just below the waist. Pair these with a crisp white top and short swing jacket. Can you say "retro"!
7 For All Mankind really seems to like a nice wide legged jean. One of their very latest and made in an oh so lightweight denim is "Ginger". It comes in a dark blue wash with signature squiggle on the back pockets and creases at the front and back. A glorious 23 inches wide at the hem. It has a comfy 9.25 front rise and a 13 back rise. Soooo comfy and cool for spring/summer. Try them with a little flutter sleeve sheer top and a strappy espadrille. Tight! But 7 For All Mankind doesn't stop there. The "Dojo" comes in several different washes and has a great wide 21inch leg opening. Don't stop there! Signature contrast embroidery on the back pockets along with front and back leg creases. Then there's a wide fun 11/2 inch hem. How about an off the shoulder tee and a pair of high metallic sandals?
So let's review. It is obviously the season for those wide legged jeans and there are a ton of choices! Lots of washes and oh those new fun tops! Sheer, printed, sleeveless, halter! And the shoes! Peep toes, ballet flats. The choices and possiblilities are endless! Get out there! SHOP! Always start at Zafu for your best jean fit! Talk to you soon.
