I just added the above photo to a file I have saved on denim. It follows the theme of what looks good to me now in the world of jeans. Mid to high-rise is the game changer with the leg silhouette being whatever personally looks best. I happen to like both a slim and full leg. Although I don’t think a belt is required, in some cases it polishes off the look nicely.
This updated style in denim has been brewing for a while, but I believe it has really stuck this season. I have a few pair that have been in rotation more than ever lately, and although it took me a few rounds to get comfortable with the higher waist and a tucked in shirt, I now prefer it. My old jeans suddenly feel odd on my body. As I continue to hone in on my favorites and how to wear them, this post will surely be an ongoing story.
