Fashion Forward: Denim
According to womens wear daily, Americans bought more than 420-million pairs of jeans last year. That means on average we own at least two pairs each. Which means if you don't have any you'd better get crackin'
(WSVN) Quite frankly what's not to like about denim?
Susannah Cahn, ELLEgirl Magazine, says "You can buy a few trendy pieces that you can mix and match with the basics and make them go far and you can wear denim in so many diffferent ways this season that it's a great investment,,,"
Find the perfect pair of jeans at The Gap.
Rachel DiCarlo, The Gap, says "Denim used to be a fabric that was thought for only as weekend use and it's not for weekend use only. now with the availability and the fit and the wash you can wear it for all occasions.."
And the hottest thing right now, for guys and gals, is the denim on denim look.
"What's great is it doesn't have to match you want it to be a little bit off so it just looks very cool you threw it together not so overthought. "
Cuz blue jeans aren't just blue anymore.
The Gap has got dark faded jeans
Light faded jeans
Dark blast jeans
And brown tint jeans to name just a few
The best part is the stretch part.
"What did we ever do without stretch? I don't know...stretch is all about freedom, comfort and just form fitting so it really makes you look great and feel great..."
And speaking of great. Jean jackets are great. No wardrobe should be without one.
And since sexy comes in all sizes, Lane Bryant has set out to design the sexiest plus size jeans.
Catherine Lippincott, Lane Bryant, says "Plus size women can look really sexy in jeans. Jeans are not just for skinny girls and it really comes down to the fit so we've made it our mission to create the best fitting jean for the plus size woman.."
The right pair is out there -- you just gotta find it.
I say stick with the stretch...
