How To Wear Overalls Without Looking Like A Kid


Actress Keira Knightley stepped out in London recently showing an alarming denial of her grown up status. While the pair of Citizens of Humanity overall jeans she wore could have been cool, the rest of the outfit translated into tween-with-a-massive-allowance. She wore the jeans with a striped knit top and a mini Chanel purse with converse sneakers and black framed glasses. Anyone out there familiar with Tommy February6? Yeeeah….  This is a “how not to wear it” post.

Tips for pulling off overalls without looking like a 7-year-old include investing in a pair that are tailored (or having us tailor them), wearing them with heels, ditching the kiddie purse and polishing the rest of your look.

If you think you can handle it, grab a pair of Citizens of Humanity overall jeans. And don’t worry, Keira, we still love you. We just want you to learn from your mistakes.

Too Tall For Your Jeans? Karlie Kloss Has The Answer


Too tall for your jeans and tired of trying to find a pair that look and feel amazing? Karlie Kloss feels your pain, and she’s begun a collaboration with FRAME Denim to solve the problem by creating a line of jeans for tall women. Read on to find out more.

karlie-kloss-jeans-for-tall-women

Via Vogue:

“For every longstanding Kate Moss for Topshop partnership (where dresses have sold out within two hours online), or Elle Macpherson Intimates label (which has garnered a clutch of entrepreneurial awards), there’s been a blink-and-you-miss-it Abbey Lee Kershawcapsule for ManiaMania or Jessica Stam collection for Rag & Bone.

Models successfully moonlighting as designers may not be anything new, but Karlie Kloss insists she wasn’t jumping on any bandwagon with her FRAME Denim Forever Karlie jeans collaboration with friends Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson.

Rather her first move into design, for which she’s co-created two excessively long jeans styles—flared and skinny in light and dark washes, each with 40-inch inseams—was born out of necessity, not ambition. “I’m freakishly tall, so finding pants that fit is something I’ve struggled with my whole life,” bemoans the gazelle-like six-foot-one beauty. “My secret to pulling off too-short jeans has always been to pair them with boots . . . and I really rocked the flood-pant trend for as long as I could!” Keep Reading…

3 Things For Women To Remember To Find Jeans That Fit


1. Know your body type and be willing to experiment to find what works for you. Curvy women look amazing in tapered jeans and straight leg as opposed to an extreme skinny. Taller gals can (and should) pull off flare-leg jeans with ease.

2. Shop for jeans with a bit of stretch to achieve a snug fit without feeling uncomfortable. The best jeans can be worn in the office, out around town, and on the even plane!

3. As a general rule, avoid super low rise jeans. Be sure they have at least an 8″ rise from crotch to waist band. Even if you’re thin, low rise aren’t flattering and they don’t provide enough coverage of your backside when you sit down.

How To Keep Boyfriend Jeans Looking Sophisticated


If you’re into boyfriend/drop-crotch jeans but don’t want to go outside looking like a Gwen Stefani fan from the early ’90s, there’s a way to pull off the look in a sophisticated fashion.

Redbook says, “Boyfriend jeans (baggy and cuffed) are the trendiest right now but can be sophisticated, too — just avoid the torn, ultra-distressed, low-rise styles that scream “teen.” They’re also versatile: Dress them up with a tailored shirt and heels or down with flats and a favorite tee.”
