Why not throw a little print mixing into your vintage floral game? Start with a pair of pretty jeans, cuffed at the leg, and add a slouchy striped tee (you know the rules: as long as the colors match, you’re good to go). Accessorize with a pair of sky-high ankle-strap heels and a sexy pair of shades.

I have put myself on a shopping ban until I go down a couple of dress sizes but a friend pointed out the new jeans from Old Navy called ankle jeans. It’s a good thing my ankles and calves are nowhere in a size to be exposed – so sexy ankles here!
Here are a couple of looks you can do with it:
My top two favorites!
Fashion blogs are saying that patchworks jeans are making a major comeback this fall. Now this isn’t an easy trend. Obviously, with the advent of skinny jeans, jeggings and patchwork jeans, you need to have a pair of great legs to be able to work them beautifully. I would definitely need the best weight loss supplements!
Here are some Patchwork jeans style tips to avoid looking like a drab:
* Steer away from leather or suede jackets and patchwork jeans as a combination
* Steer away from wearing blazers or other layered tops
* Keep it simple, like pairing the jeans with a basic white tee and, at max, an interesting long, stringy necklace.
* If you’re out a certain age, you might want to stay from the trend all together as it may look like you’re “trying” too hard to be trendy.
Why is it that while the world gets bigger, things get smaller?
A laptop computer is now the size of a notebook, shoes become thongs or regress to become gladiator sandals, and jeans become tight and named skinny. Now, they are more than skinny – they have become jeggings!
For those of you who don’t know: Leggings+Jeans= Jeggings. Even Wikipedia seems to have acknowledged their presence. It’s one of this season’s hottest trends, one that has been embraced by celebrity and ordinary clientele alike.
There’s simply one golden rule when donning these slinkies: Always keep your backside covered. We don’t care if you look like Gisele from behind, wearing jeggings with a tucked in shirt is like wearing leggings with a tucked in shirt (now you get the picture). It is simply not a good look. However, you should check out other, non-denim, versions of the trend- including prints, military-inspired, and gray versions.
My picks are the bottom two – if only I had those skinny gams!
Friends who have AE Jeans swear by them – I guess I need to drop down so many sizes so I can finally own one. Actually I have one stashed in my long-forgotten storage bin where I still keep my quality size 8-12 clothes. I swear those will still see the light of day, and worn by me!
Ive been obsessing with ripped jeans lately, I dont know why!
You never thought something so misshapen for a woman’s body can be so fashionable!
Sure, short shorts are cool, but what’s even cooler (and easier on imperfect bodies) is the slightly slouchy and roomier boyfriend short.
Pair your boyfriend shorts with anything from a tank to a comfy button down—dress it up or dress it down.
Some ways in wearing it:
Worn in a bucolic way, it’s just some barely cut jeans, such as some second-hand Levi’s 501 jeans. Accessorized with a short jacket, a hat and an old bag, it’s the perfect outfit to run accross the fields.
In the “backstage” way, it’s just worn with a simple oversize and printed T-shirt. It’s a cheap-but-not-cheap outfit, with a lot of easy details, an easy style such as the one of the girls who know a lot about fashion.
In the evening, you can dress it up with a tiny sequin jacket on an immaculate T-shirt, or in a trashy way, you can bleach and rip it, and even sew chains on it.
In town, you can wear it as you want, with everything you like : a high belted top, a long jacket or why not a man waistcoat…
People, especially women, say you are extremely lucky to find the perfect pair of jeans – right, perfect, flattering fit. A pair that lifts up places and smoothes over unflattering curves.
