Welcome to Denim Week! In Amsterdam Was last week 😉 Over the next seven days, we’ll be highlighting the season’s biggest trends, hundreds of amazing outfit ideas, and expert tips on how to choose the best jeans for your shape. Keep checking back for more denim ideas!
When you get a group of fashion-loving girls together for dinner and wine, conversation will, inevitably, turn to clothing. While at an event with some of today’s best-dressed bloggers, we got swept up into a chat about favorite denim brands and what fit everyone’s individual frames best. Interestingly, everyone was taking their skinnies into the tailor (and these ladies ranged from a petite 5’2″ to a willowy 5’7″) to have them hemmed to a specific length.
All the girls around the table innately knew that cropped jeans, hitting right above the ankle bone, are the most flattering. You can shop plenty designed at that length, but it’s an easy (and inexpensive) adjustment for longer styles as well. The weekend after that dinner I set aside time to comb through my jeans and plucked out the ones that were comfy but had the tiniest bit of extra fabric at the bottom. The stack went straight to the local seamstress! It was painless, it wasn’t that pricey, and I wear all those pairs way more than ever before.
