Denim Every Day!
What CAN'T you wear with denim? There are so many types of denim jeans, I wonder what types are your favorite. The cut of the jean (skinny or boot, for example) and the wash of them (such as light or dark wash). Low or high rise waist, distressed, colored, or a damaged look. So many choices! So have many favorite types that match your mood!
Cardigans are a great addition with jeans. Layering is a great way to add color and texture to your look. Add jewelry or a scarf to dress your jeans up. A great handbag is always necessary (trust me!). Tom's wedge heels or a pair of Keds will finish your amazing look!

WHAT IT SAYS: Low-rise
WHAT IT MEANS: The rise is the distance from the crotch seam to the top of the waistband. Low-rise styles come up only to about 3 inches below your belly button.
WHAT IT SAYS: Boot-cut
WHAT IT MEANS: These jeans are designed to fit over a pair of boots. They’re straight through the leg, with just a bit of flare at the bottom.
WHAT IT SAYS: Flare
WHAT IT MEANS: Narrower in the knee than a boot-cut design, flares are also slightly wider at the bottom, for a more exaggerated shape.
WHAT IT SAYS: Skinny
WHAT IT MEANS: This trendy style is fitted in the leg all the way to the ankle. The fabric usually has quite a bit of stretch and needs to be washed more often to retain the shape.
WHAT IT SAYS: Wash
WHAT IT MEANS: This term refers to the process of coloring the denim. Washes can be dark, medium or light. More stylized washes, such as “destroyed” denim, are also popular.
