Suite 101. Let’s Talk Denim, Shall We? Second City Style Fashion Blog

November 9, 2006 • Fashion

Jeans have been getting a lot of air-play and all it seems to have done
is leave everyone confused. There’s boot-cut, skinny leg, low-rise,
dark rinse, stretch, plus-size, zipper or buttons…you get the idea.

"For so many years, boot-cut jeans were it," says Lucky fashion
director Hope Greenberg. "It was the one thing that almost every woman
went to. Boot cut is universally flattering, but the trend had to go
somewhere else." Designers Nicolas Ghesquiere, Karl Lagerfeld and
Stella McCartney have included skinny jeans in their collections for
the past two seasons, but the look is just beginning to intrigue
mainstream America. Let’s try to break this down.

Denim Rules
Jeans can work on all women, no matter what age, size, etc. — but not
all styles work for all women. Wear a style because it’s flattering,
not just because it’s trendy. If you don’t have the legs for skinny cut
jeans, stick with boot cut styles.
