Denim is defined as a sturdy cotton twill fabric, typically blue, used for jeans, overalls, and other clothing.  Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans” and invented byJacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873. Starting in the 1950s, jeans, were originally designed for cowboys and miners, then became popular among teenagers.   Historic brands include Levi’s, Lee, and Wrangler.  It is not only an American casual wardrobe staple, but for other cultures around the world.

5 Pairs of Jeans to Wear in 2014

With all that said, the top styles of denim for 2014 have not changed a lot over the last few years.

  1. Ripped and Worn- distressed or torn denim is all the rage for 2014 and carried in most clothing stores.  Not your MO?  Do not wear them.

  2. Boyfriend- comfy and cozy fit denim, that sits lower than your natural waist.

  3. Straight- not too full and not too skinny.

  4. Boot Cut- when it doubt choose a boot cut fit.  They are flared very slightly below the knee.  This is touted as the most flattering fit for most body shapes.

  5. Skinny- it is still on trend for 4+ years.  Why?  It elongates the appearance of your legs because of it’s slender cut.  Bonus- you can purchase a pair per your body shape in curvy, modern, or straight.  You can pair them with flats, ankle boots, or heels.
