Size up if you are looking for denim to feel cozy and ensure it is a lasting staple in your wardrobe, especially if the material is primarily made with cotton, because it doesn’t bode well for stretch. Pair with a sweater to elevate or dress down with a Branded Tee for a more casual look.
With the COVID-19 Lockdowns being suspended and Spring/Summer fast approaching we hope you think like “Julia” within her Eat, Pray, Love comment about sizing up. Recently, we found ourselves retiring the “leggings everyday” attire and upgrading to Denim.
Quality Denim can be expensive so do your research and have a plan when you go shopping online or even at stores such as Nordstrom, Bergdorf or even your hometown favorite retailer. Having denim that will last yet forgive when you eat that large meal is what you are looking for. A healthy mix of cotton and elastane should always be a top pick because of the forgiveness and the durability.

The first to cultivate a New Fashion frenzy was Marilyn Monroe. She paired this oversized casual look with her feminine physique which led to this idea of masculine beauty breaking barriers within the fashion culture of her time. Relaxed, Classic, Simple and convertible to dress either up or down. It is always the first on our list when it comes to denim options.
THE WIDE LEG/TROUSER:
This is such a flattering leg shape for all, and truly is the master at being dressed up! We are not reliving the “Jenko” ‘90’s skater days, although, this year the plunging lengths and puddling hem is back in style. Here we are talking flattering denim that will keep you comfortable but present in the most upscale way to whoever your audience is.
Listen, we get that this is a trend but not one we love because it can be hard to find a pair that fits right. It’s easy, yet not often as cozy as you would think. Spending the time to find a pair that’s comfortable, especially on your ankles, takes time but is certainly worth it. Here are a couple favorites with some serious give for those days you want to show off your shape.
Hear us out, this look is beyond flattering for those who have no shape and yet more flattering for those who need to offset their proportions. It is easy to dress up or down yet the luxury of ordering in a longer length takes us back to dressing with heels! Here are some of our top picks.
Nothing beats a flattering overall especially during the spring or summer. It isn’t fussy, and paired with a simple flat, sneaker, or even a sandal can be such a great surprise outfit for either a casual Friday with the girls or a farmers market. There are plenty of pockets for tools and let’s not forget, comfort! No pulling up or down, just ease in the look.
Ultimately, I could go on for days about my favorite denim but it truly is a starting point for your updated wardrobe this summer. Denim is like a fine wine and ages over time with you. Grow into the comfort level with the styles you select and don’t hold on to anything that is too fussy or just plain uncomfortable. Places like Poshmark or resale companies will take your denim and pay you back so you can purchase a new pair!
Always listen to your body and dress accordingly. People will never look down on you when you are beaming in comfort and confidence!
For me, denim has a simple code: it should mirror comfort and it should be styled for the right atmosphere or striking enough for that first impression.
