The most feared animal in the fashion jungle is without a doubt, the Jean. Just mention the notion of going jean shopping and even the most fearless among us lets out a bloodcurdling scream and, with a shaky hand, reaches for a glass of wine. The struggle is real. That’s why I take my job as a blogger so seriously: to do the work for you and tell you as much as I can about fit, quality and style so you can shop easier.
As a denim enthusiast, I am so excited to tell you about my favorite styles from Eloquii’s new denim line. When they asked me to help spread the good word about the collection I knew I wanted to not only show you the styles but also talk about building your denim wardrobe.
Your Office-Friendly Jean: The Refined Trouser
The dark wash of the Refined Trouser Jean make them perfect for the casual office – or, at least, casual Fridays. I love the length on these – I’m 5’6 – and they pair perfectly with a midi heel. I went with a size 20 and that worked out perfectly: I had a teensy bit of space but the nice stretchy material made these comfortable and easy to wear all day long.
Pair them with: Your favorite blouse for work & your sassy cold shoulder sweater for play.
Your Go-To-Date-Night Jean: The Supa Skinny
Hot, hot, hot! Eloquii’s Supa Skinny is a true skinny jean – which means it runs about a size to a size-and-a-half small (I’m wearing a 22). I think the length is great, I love how they bunch around my ankle – there’s something so sexy about it! If you’re a gal who wants a bit more hold than your typical jegging provides, the Supa Skinnies will be right up your alley.
Pair them with: a chic cashmere sweater for a ‘soft to the touch’ vibe & with a tank and leather jacket for cocktails.
Your Weekend Warrior: The Ex-Boyfriend Jean
Okay, let’s be real: by the time Sunday shows up, and I’ve spent the week between Spanx and tight jeans, I’m ready for sweats and yoga pants. Thankfully the Ex-Boyfriend jeans are as comfy as sweats (though considerably more chic) they kind of make me feel like I’m cheating a bit. I shouldn’t be this comfortable and still look this hot, right? They are the perfect Sunday jean. I’m wearing a size 20 and have lots of room (in a good way) and the lightweight fabric and loose fit make these a dream to wear.
Pair them with: sky high heels and a colorful peplum top for a chic casual look & a flannel around your waist with a sassy tank and flats for a cool-girl feel.
Hopefully this guide to beginning denim was helpful – and now you know where to start when searching for new styles to build a fuller denim wardrobe! Remember fit is key (especially when jean shopping) so be armed with your measurements and get ready to fight the good fight!
