You might think, “Uh. Duh, Sydney! I know jeans are a wardrobe basic.” Which is true. Every woman has a pair of jeans in her wardrobe, but I don’t mean just any jeans. I am referring to dark denim, ones without any embellishments or whiskering. Denim trends go in and out. Some seasons acid wash jeans are in, while other seasons distressed denim is all the rage. What never goes out style? Dark jeans. Sleek jeans. Jeans that make you seem thinner and taller. That is what a pair of dark wash jeans will do for you. You should have a pair of these in your closet. They can be skinny, wide-leg, bootcut, or straight-leg. Whatever works for your body.
No matter the style, they should always be a higher rise. Low -rise jeans can easily create a muffin top. I have had clients tell me , ” Oh I have a muffin top, so pants are an issue.” I always inform them that they don’t have a muffin top, they are wearing low-rise pants that create a muffin top. I dumped my low-rise jeans a couple of years ago. They are better for those in their early 20s. Now, all of my jeans have a higher rise.
My g0-to brand are J Brand. They are clean and sleek, and the pockets are free of any embellishments. I have bell bottom jeans, straight-leg, and wide-leg. Here are some of my picks for dark jeans.
If you are looking for a skinnier leg, these J Brand jeans are great.
If wide-leg is your thing, these Madewell widelegger jeans are perfect for you.
Dark denim on the cheap? Try these from Old Navy.
