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.
In stores and online today: the GOLDSIGN For J.Crew womens jeans collaboration debuts with a collection of jeans and denim skirts, inspired by the women of 1950s Hollywood. “Focusing on feminine fits, the washes vary in authentic vintages, pure indigos, and soft pastels.” This is the first collaboration between Adriano Goldschmied and J.Crew. Three distinct fits make up the collaboration: “Jeane” – a feminine, sexy, high-waist American jean; “Jenny” – a slim leg, classic, 5-pocket, high-waist jean with cuff; and “Holly” – a timeless 1950s high-waist pencil skirt; ranging in price from $198 to $288.

When it comes to women’s denim, we have a policy: less is more. We’re all about wild prints and exciting textures to spice life up once in a while, but a favorite pair of neutral-hued skinny jeans or no-fuss cut-off shorts can make the difference between a last minute outfit and a stellar ensemble. Eugene Is My Middle Name released their spring 2013 lookbook full of gorgeous clean lines and vibrant hues for the upcoming warm weather season, and we’re all over it.
See the full lookbook below.
You can shop the spring collection online at Scoop NYC. A percentage of all the brand’s profits are donated to charities that empower lives globally.

We’ve seen flowers, we’ve seen paisley…heck, we’ve even seen skeletons prancing on printed jeans! So it’s super refreshing when a brand comes out with a unique take on a done-to-death trend (not that we’re tired of it). Big Star USA released a pair of very charming jeans for spring that feature a smattering of colorful birds on white denim. Understated in a cartoon-y way, they’d be a flawless match for a white silk button-down top or a tailored navy blazer.
This style will hit stores in May, so stay tuned.
