From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.
Throughout my 10 years as a stylist, I can say that pretty much every piece I pulled for my clients at the beginning of my career is no longer on-trend. Since the trends in the fashion industry are constantly changing, I am almost never pulling the same pieces year after year, of course, with a few exceptions. One of the few pieces that I continually use for my clients is a pair of skinny jeans. This denim trend is flattering and versatile, making it something that the fashion crowd will never give up.
Although there are constant changes in denim washes and details, the basic skinny-jean silhouette has been worn by pretty much every celebrity and fashion girl alike. With this trend being so timeless, the options of where to purchase skinny jeans are constantly expanding. However, there’s one pair of skinny jeans I am constantly recommending to my clients because of their quality and ability to flatter any body type. The high-rise skinny-jean selection from Madewell is where I always find the best quality skinny jeans that will hold up and remain in style for season after season. Being a huge fan of this denim trend, I’m excited to continue to recommend this style to my clients for seasons to come.
