No White After Labor Day? Rag & Bone Disagrees (And So Do We)


The “no white after labor day” rule is definitely one fashion commandment we don’t give much thought to. After all, the most stylish among us can rock white pants right on into fall, winter, and back around to spring. So we’re thrilled Rag & Bone has such a sleek line of white jeans, available right now—some at a discount—for us to pair with the oversize sweaters, denim jackets, and cozy autumnal tops we’ve been pulling out of storage in preparation for impending fall. Join us, won’t you?

Trend Alert: Overall Jeans


We love when childhood favorites make comebacks as stylish wardrobe staples. The overall jean is no exception, but this is one piece you’ll need to pull off with specific style cues in order not to look like you’re simply regressing to the days of early Nickelodeon cartoons and Bazooka gum. Honestly, WTF did a round-up of chic ways to wear them, our favorites of which are below.

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.

Whiskers Help Avoid Wider Looking Hips


Here’s a great tip from Donna Ida to take with you on your next denim shopping endeavor. Jeans with whiskers (especially of the subtle, natural-looking variety) can add some depth and dimension to your jeans’ crotch and hip area, and help you avoid looking wider and “blocky”. If you’re trying to look slimmer from the front, take this tip into consideration, and check out some great whiskered washes below.

Buy The Next Size Up If Jeans Have No Stretch


Here’s a denim shopping tip that will probably save you some frustration while you’re stocking up for spring—especially if you’re shopping online. You may have a general idea of your denim size, but be careful when shopping for denim without stretch. No stretch means no give, at all. Buy the next size up to avoid discomfort and muffin tops.
