Question: I want to buy a new pair of jeans and I need your help.  I love skinny jeans, are they still trendy?  Do you think they flatter my body shape, the pear?  And if not, what are the best jean styles for my body type?  Thanks,   H.M., 22


Answer: Thanks for your Q.  Boy, there is a lot of ground to cover on this extremely important question!  We’ll go in order and in points, but there is something we’d like to say first.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Everybody shape has its appeal.  There is no perfect body and not everyone has the same taste.  So no matter what your shape, be confident and wear appropriate clothing to flatter your shape, and trust us, you’ll look beautiful.

Now back to your questions…

1.  Skinny jeans have become one of the basic jean cuts, in my opinion, like the boot-cut and the straight leg etc.

2.  When dressing think of proportions.  Skinny’s can be worn by most body shapes, if worn correctly. If you have wide hips and narrow shoulders, the pear shape, make sure you accentuate the top part of your body.

3.  A good pair of boot-cut jeans are the most flattering for all body shapes, followed by the straight-leg and skinny’s.  Stay away from boyfriend jeans!

With Earth Day around the corner, April 22nd, GO GREEN.  Green is one of the season’s hottest hues, probably after orange though!!  

Take a look at Drew Barrymore looking AMAZING in this sea-green one-sleeve Elie Saab number.

Take these styling tips from shopbop: 

1) Wearing green doesn’t have to mean looking like  lawn.  Mix and match textures and neutral tones to make the dominating color accentuate your style, not define it. 

2) I love working a print into my brights! This blouse is so fresh and super easy to wear – the cool colors work on both the blonds and brunettes.

3) Summer’s must-have romper makes a statement in emerald.  Effortlessly chic for shopping in the city, picniking in the park, or just hanging out.

4) Make a bold statement with a flowing jade maxi! The glam silhouette and luxe silk take green to new fashion-forward heights.

5) Don’t be afraid to work a little utlra-bright green into your everyday look.  It’ll up the ante for your casual cardi and boy-friend jeans.
