Jilly Moo's Basic #2 : Bootcut or Flare Denim Jean

Friday, September 4, 2009

Every Gal Needs: Either a bootcut or flare leg denim jean, your choice. Great to wear with basic tops, blazers, sweaters, and fun tops to go out. Just make sure the top isn't long and overwhelming.

Fit: Make sure the length is appropriate: the bottom of your jeans should skim the ground. We hate when jeans aren't long enough (this looks especially bad when the jeans are flare). Make sure the jean is fitted in the bootie, hip and thigh and begins to flare out at or below the knee but be careful that the jean isn't too tight through the hips and pulls the fabric across (this means no fabric puckering at the zipper and no bunched up fabric pulling across under your bootie). These jeans can shorten the leg because of the width so to lengthen the leg, wear heals unless you are confident that you have long legs! This also means no rolling up bootcut or flare leg jeans to wear with flats... save that for skinny or straight leg jeans.

Our Favs: We love Dojo by Seven for a good basic boocut jean. JBrand Lovestory is a great flare. We also love Rock and Republic and Hudson jeans in general.
