Ageless Style is a monthly style challenge and link up for women of all ages. Each month we pick a different theme and style an outfit based on that theme. This month's theme is "Rock Your Jeans" and was picked by Rosemary..
Welcome back to Ageless Style. We took last month off due to the holidays but we are back in full swing showing off our jeans. In years past, it always seemed only one type of jeans were in style and if you wore anything else you were considered out of style. But now, it seems anything goes when it comes to jeans. You can wear wide leg, bootcut, flare, straight leg, whichever style you prefer and you are still on trend. Even skinny jeans are still being worn, although they are trending out.
For this theme, I decided to show two new-to-me jean styles. I was growing tired of the skinny jean trend last year, so I went shopping and purchased a pair of wide leg jeans (the light blue pair on the left) and a pair of straight leg jeans (the black pair on the right). I really like them both, and I am more than happy to say "goodbye" to my skinny jeans.
Wide Leg Jeans Straight Leg Jeans
First let's talk about the wide leg jeans. These are a light wash. I have recently read that dark washes are more on trend so if you're going to invest in a new pair of jeans I would purchase a dark wash. However, I am happy to have a light wash option, especially in the spring.
The jeans are straight and wide right down to the framed hem. They have a looser fit, and are super comfy (unlike those tight fitting skinny jeans). The brand is Mavi.
I paired my light wash jeans with a complimentary color: periwinkle. Light wash jeans look great with navy, purple, pink, and light neutrals such as oatmeal, grey, white, and camel.
My second pair of jeans is a pull-on straight leg jean by Liverpool. These are also super comfy. If you're having a had time transitioning out of your skinny jeans, straight leg jeans will help ease the transition.
I'm wearing the same black Mia Jody Chelsea Boot with both my light wash wide leg jeans and my straight leg black jeans. The fact that I can wear the same style and color of boots with two completely different pairs of jeans shows how versatile this bootie is!
I wore this outfit when it was -25 degree windchill outside. The straight legs help balance out the oversize sweater. Wide leg jeans worn with this large sweater would have made me look like the Michelin Man 😂
So what about you? What style of jean is your current favorite? Are you still wearing skinny jeans, or did you ditch them? I'd love to hear from you!
Now be sure to visit the other ladies in our group and link up with us as well!
Have a Great Day! Amy
