Hi all! In prepping my closet for spring I’ve been trying on all my jeans (I confess to wearing mostly leggings all winter). A couple months ago I noticed a hole in my jeans capsule and purchased a pair of Levi’s high rise Wedgie jeans on super sale at TJMaxx (pic #1). I like them a lot in theory, but I don’t think I like them on me. I think they’re a size too big, and the button fly only emphasizes that. I also think they’re too casual/tomboy, and that I feel better in more feminine jeans styles. So back to the drawing board. I realized I don’t feel very current after years of skinny jeans and want something a little trendier. Of the spring denim trends Angie shared, I like:

  • High rise
  • Cuffed hem
  • Wide crop
  • Sailor waist
  • Cropped flare
I have high rise wide leg black jeans and high rise white cropped jeans with split hem (pics 2 & 3). Not pictured are a pair of light wash mid rise wide leg cutoff Levi’s from the 90s (not a perfect fit, but $1 at a yard sale so they work for now) and a pair of high rise cropped dark wash skinny Levi’s. Those are my “classics” so I’d like to add one updated pair. I usually cuff the Levi’s I have, so the cuffed hem trend might be covered. Wide crop is covered by the black pair. I like sailor a lot, but I might save that for when I can try on in stores because it seems trickiest. That leaves cropped flares.

Current contender: the Veronica Beard jeans (pics 4 & 5). Kick crops work well for me; if they’re not the right length I don’t mind cutting them shorter. The pockets seem fun and different from what I already have. But I’m curious what you all think: go for cropped flares, or do you suggest a different denim trend? If you like the flares, do you like this pair? And has anyone tried Veronica Beard denim? Thanks all!
