Denim or jeans? I just learned that denim is the fabric used to make jeans and accessories. Nothing screams casual like denim! I like to say denim is the king of casual. Most of us love jeans, men and women alike. However, most women tend to stick to skinnies while men to the straight leg. In this post, I will talk about the type of jeans I own which may encourage you to try other types of jeans.
My all-time favourite. Probably because they are so comfortable. However, it depends on the fit (at least to me). Some people call the straight leg, boyfriend jeans. In my opinion, they only qualify as boyfriend jeans if they are generally slouchy and relaxed. I pair this pair with a vintage star wars tee and a fanny pack to create a grunge look.
These are also my favourite pile! Although mine are kind of jogger jeans here, and they are cropped as well. There’s something about cropped jeans, but they aren’t for everyone. Anyway, I like comfortable clothing, and these are pretty comfortable. I pair them with a striped button-down and my peep-toe booties and throw in a few accessories here and there.
Straight leg jeans
You might be confused by the name of these but this simply means the top thigh fit of the jeans is nearly as wide as the bottom of the jeans. I like these cos they allow more leg freedom. These always look chic but you can wear them as I have with a basic cropped long sleeve top for a super-casual look.
These are really soft jeans. Probably made of some soft denim material. Another fave. However, the only downside of these is that they wear faster than other types of jeans. Here I pair mine with a tube top and a long cardigan.
High waist jeans
A great jeans style, but I do not usually reach for these as often. Cos first, a good pair of high waist jeans rarely has front pockets and second, they are some kind of corset cos they are designed to make your waist look smaller. Of cos this is a good thing, but not always. Especially when you plan to eat. Here I wear mine with a white sweater and my lilac slip-ons.
This is a collab between leggings and jeans. They fit snuggly and don’t look too bad. Although I never understand the boring elastic band that comes at the waist of most of these style of jeans. Again, not my fave but they are a little more comfortable than real skinnies. Here, I pair my green jeggings with one of my favourite tops at the moment, a white pom-pom embellished top and my jungle green sneakers. This is a sporty or chill look, giving you a look at how jeggings really tone down your outfit.
These are my favourite style of jeans but they're definitely not at the top of the pile. They are tight, but they keep everything nice and even. Skinnies are essential in a girl’s wardrobe. I like my skinnies to be mid-rise and ankle-grazing. This means exactly what it sounds like… cuts through the navel at the top and grazes the ankle at the bottom. Here, I pair these Bershka skinnies with a wrap bodysuit which needs a couple of magic tricks to stay put.
I hope this post helps you to reach out for other types of jeans. In future, I'll be doing a similar post for the guys. Cheers, x.
