It can be challenging to find the perfect pair of jeans, but a great pair is worth the investment. If you want to find out which styles work best for you, try a few and see which ones fit your personality.
Current Jean Trends
Even with the basic cowboy history of jeans, there are so many styles to choose from today. Even though jeans began as a utilitarian item, today’s styles are all about style.
Despite being not everyone’s favorite, these jeans can easily be transformed from a casual to a dressy look with a quick change of top. All the way down they are tapered and fit very tightly around the rear and thigh area. These jeans are often made from stretch denim, which helps them cling even better. Wear them with boots, heels, flip-flops, or sneakers. It is a style that can be worn by teens both male and female.
The jegging is a hybrid of skinny jeans and leggings. Often, there is no zipper or button on them, although sometimes non-functional buttons are added to make them look like real jeans. There is a lot of cling to this style, just like leggings. These jeans are often made of a material that looks like denim, but is not true denim. There are many ways to wear them, including with boots, heels, sneakers, or sandals. If you’re bold with your fashion choices, you can wear these if they’re marketed towards women.
Boot Cut Jeans
Like their name suggests, these jeans are designed to be worn over boots, with a slight flare at the bottom. Teenagers usually pair them with shorter boots these days, rather than wearing them over cowboy or work boots. In addition to boot cut jeans, you can wear heels, sandals, clogs, or mules with boot cut jeans. It’s a great relaxed, unisex style.
Bell Bottom Jeans
A boot cut jeans and a bell bottom jeans both fall under the flare jeans category, but bell bottom jeans flare out more dramatically than boot cuts. Originally popular in the 1960s and 1970s, this style is making a comeback and pairs well with vintage tees or dressier tops. The style is mostly marketed to teen girls, but guys can also pull it off if they are into 70s fashion.
Button Flies Closure
Button flies have several buttons that close the jeans instead of a zipper and a single button. Jeans with this type of closure can be found in a variety of styles, including skinny jeans, high waisted jeans, relaxed straight leg fits, and bell bottoms. Closures like this are unisex.
High Waisted Jeans
The high waisted jeans can be found in flared fits, jeggings, straight leg fits, and skinny jeans. Jeans in this style sit higher on the waist, giving them a more dramatic appearance. A pair of high waisted jeans looks great with boots, heels, sneakers, and flats.
Distressed jeans are not a classic style, but are frequently in and out of style. A pair of distressed jeans may have minor rips and tears, large holes, and two-tone washes. It’s a great style to wear when the weather is warmer because it defaults to a more casual look. This style can be worn by both men and women.
The whiskering on jeans gives them a worn, used appearance. From mild whiskering on the thigh to whiskering throughout the leg, it varies in severity. An unisex style, whiskering gives jeans a more casual look.
