Winter Denim Trends

Two summer jean trends  are making themselves indispensable for the cooler months of the year.  The Cargo Skinny and Boyfriend jean are here to stay and both look stylish whether you are doing the school-run or dinner with friends.

Get the Skinny on Cargos

50 and fabulous Julianne Moore has been spotted around town wearing her J Brand Houlihan jeans.  These pants were perfect with your gladiator sandals in the summer and now transition well with your favorite lace-up boots, ankle boots, or pumps. Top it off with a tunic or  boyfriend sweater.  Looking for a more defined look? Pair it with your favorite cropped-leather jacket or furry vest.

Boyfriend Jeans To Make Your Husband Look Twice!

Not everyone has legs like Gisele or wants their jeans to feel like a second skin, but take comfort ladies because relaxed jeans are also making a statement. Current/Elliott’s Boyfriend jean was a summer staple for  beauties like Jessica Alba, SJP, Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Holmes.

Keep the cuff rolled up for winter and pair with your favorite pair of UGGs and cozy sweater or step it up with a blazer and wedge boots. The extra room is an added bonus for the holiday feeding frenzy.

    I have been coveting the J. Brand Houlihan’s. Just wanted to share that Old Navy has put their version out recently and I saw some pretty good options for this look at Le Chateau and H&M.

    Yes, thanks for posting. I just saw the commercial for cargo skinny jeans at Old Navy. Good tip.
